All else equal, a winning move would stay a winning move... until and unless you changed the rules. Reg stood from his desk chair, walking to the fireplace. There was a brief moment as he walked from the travel room into the council chamber itself.

The core, on the other hand - the two alien races and their demands - is drama out of something and would do well with some elaboration. For one thing, while the Babyeaters are pretty well established (and have some historic analog in the Holocaust, as mentioned in the story itself), the Superhappies look much more muddled to me.
