The Queen Candidate

The first nurse reaches into the containment pod and pulls out the hatchling. The other watches. PENN 2: It happened, didn't it? The C'efil - PENN 1: Yes. We just got word of Candidate Kissu's death. PENN 2: [small] Oh flight's name... PENN 1: They were forced to cancel the election. Now the Monarch's suing for peace and the council's calling for any queens hatched today. PENN 2: This one? PENN 1: That's right. The nurse holds up the smiling, sleeping hatchling. PENN 1: This little one is going to be one of the new Candidates.
