-----We shall defend our sovereignty at all costs, be it our physical, societal, economic, philosophical and political sovereignty.
-----We shall give respect to all who show us respect, even those we call foe.
-----We shall act in the best interest of our allies, our membership, and our honor, and we shall always weigh these three interests when we act.
-----We shall not force our ideals on others; instead we shall show our ideals in example.
We promise to dedicate ourselves to the service of Andromeda, and we swear to use our authority with benevolence. We commit to never use our power for personal gain. We swear to never shy away from our duties, no matter how dark the day seems. We, the Ordinati Officers of Andromeda, do hereby invest in this Foundation, and uphold it as our highest law.

We swear to speak only the truth, and to only promise what we know is true. We commit to never abuse our authority, and never to use it for personal gain. We, the Voci of Andromeda, do hereby invest in this Foundation, and uphold it as our highest law.
