  • Believe this and you'll believe anything

    The first High Guard ship built for 307 years, more powerful than Andromeda, blows up just before it's launched. Dylan is there with the Maru, which can save 400 people and there were thousands aboard the destroyed ship. And a pack of Nietschean killer-ships were on the way to destroy it. And when the sorry saga grinds to a halt, we're invited to believe that a comet destroyed the new ship, not a saboteur. A brand new ship with a full crew and they failed to spot an incoming comet? Pur-lease!

    • Dylan: (attempting to find a way to survive when their escape pod has only minutes of air left) Finish your plan yet?
      Tyr: Yes, I have a plan. How are you doing, Dylan?
      Dylan: Finished. So, what's your plan?
      Tyr: In my plan, we would die.
      Dylan: Oh.
      Tyr: Yours?
      Dylan: Well, see, my plan is... uh... it involves a spacewalk. (Tyr looks incredulous) Well, we die. (Tyr throws up his hands in disgust) We need a better plan.

    • Errin: Beka Valentine, you're an excellent pilot. If I didn't know better, I'd mistake you for a Nietzschean.
      Beka: Thanks, I think?!

    • Dylan: What's up?
      Beka: I've got bad news, and then I've got some bad news.
      Dylan: Phew! For a moment there, I thought something good was going to happen today.

    • Beka: (holding gun to Errin) You can die, get out of the way, or help. What's it gonna be?

    • (Dylan stares at Errin Shohashi, apparently mesmerized. Tyr gets up in Dylan's face.)
      Tyr: (repeating what Beka just said) She's Nietzschean.
      Dylan: (still staring) She can be anything she wants to be.

    • Tyr: (about the senator) Even the Grim Reaper didn't want her.

    • The universe is bound
      in equal parts
      By arrogance and altruism.
      Any attempt to alter this
      Would be suicide.

      Dr. Walter Giles,
      "The Value of Value,"

    • Titanic:

      The ship's destruction by a comet (essentially ice and similar substances) as well as the flaws in the escape pods are likely an allusion to the Titanic, a similarly praised ship which was destroyed by a collision with an iceberg and had an insufficient number of lifeboats.

    • Shohashi:

      This is a possible reference to Sho Hashi, the first king of the Kingdom of Ryukyu (today Okinawa Prefecture), having united the islands' three kingdoms of Chuzan, Hokuzan, and Nanzan by conquest.

    • Genghis:

      This is a reference to the Mongolian Emperor Genghis Khan.
