    YOU know you made mistakes. I’m less sure about Galaxy realizing it.

    • Arklytte

      Exactly right! Star seems to have a lot of regrets, and just seems sad and tired, but determined to save her people and do what she sees as her duty.

      Galaxy is acting like an arrogant bitch, fully convinced that her way is The Right Way™, and damn anyone who disagrees.

      The stars lived longer than any one fairies. So they made the more mistales than any other fairy. Now all that matters if they learned anything from this

    Some of the greatest mistakes in history were made “For the Greater Good”.

    They’re heart’s in the right place. But in the end, it may all ultimately come down too weather or not they can all finally learn to do something they probably haven’t done in a long time.

    Change.

    • Arklytte

      UGH! I positively despise that phrase. Most of the people who blather that insipid platitude about ‘The Greater Good’ are actually some of the most evil bastards to walk the Earth.

      To use an example from fiction (specifically Harry Potter), IMO Dumbledore is just as, IF NOT MORE, evil than either Riddle or Grindlewald. At least Riddle and Grindlewald are honest about their desires to control the world and make everyone dance to their tune. Dumbles is a hyper-controlling moral busybody who uses that whole Grandfatherly facade to hide the fact that he treats everyone around him like pieces on a chessboard and allows an innocent child to be repeatedly physically, mentally, and emotionally abused, all so he can mold him into a mentally broken, sacrificial lamb, who might as well have the word “Doormat” stamped in gold letters on his forehead.

      This concludes my TED Talk.

      • HKMaly

        “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

        ― C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock: Essays on Theology (Making of Modern Theology)

        Note that in human history, the worst people were usually convinced they have divine approval. Stars really DO have divine approval, or very close equivalent.

    Third panel from the “Teaser” image that was made years ago has been revealed. One more left. Wonder if then will we get “Teaser 2”

    • Arklytte

      Probably relatively soon, considering it’s pretty obvious that the war is about to heat up.

      • Sokaras

        Yeah it will be soon. Guessing from fourth image is some kind of nihallak war drone that they probably will be able to build now that the Core is up and running
