They most certainly were not. They departed from the planet and did not accompany the Empress aboard the ship that took her to the military procession.

Fairly sure everything about that ship, save the knowledge of it's existance, is classified. I'm positive that no outsider is going to board it and live to tell the tale.

I want to paint my ship Periwinkle.

Not so sure about that. As the Empress' personal vessel, it would be the natural place for entertaining diplomatic guests in a highly-controlled environment. Say what you like about 'well, they'd meet on the planet', it's a lot harder for a spy or would-be assassin to try to escape or hide in an enclosed tube surrounded by vacuum than it is on a habitable world. Plenty of places to secret a shuttle landing pad dirtside, too.

And Aldrith: I haven't seen anything about the others departing before the end of the festivities tomorrow. Where's that from?

Nowhere to hide a shuttle on/in the hull of a 14km long titan? It would make more sense to not let foreigners onboard, use a non-standard layout for the interior to confuse and disorient hostile forces attempting to take the vessel, and keep every piece of hardware not visible from the outside classified. A vessel designed for the soul task of transporting a high profile individual as securely as possible.

I want to paint my ship Periwinkle.

14km long cylinder with every square centimeter monitored, or planet: which is easier to sneak a shuttle onto?

Well, they might not have left Amarr Prime yet, but they definitely were not on the TES Purity. I think the news would have mentioned that the Sanmatar was knocked out of his seat by a terrorist act the likes of which he'd shed a tear of pride over.

Oh, the news would definitely have mentioned if they were on the ship. I agree they weren't, but that doesn't mean there's no reason they would be. Two different threads of conversation, there.

I kinda figured they wouldn't be on the ship, it just doesn't seem like something any leader would do, nevermind the empress.

Passenger manifest aside, I'm still curious what the 'first betrayal' was for Sera.
