    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Nene: I don't think I can hold on much longer!
        Linna: Don't…give up. Never…give up.

      • Priss: There's no point in risking all three of us, is there? So as team leader, I'm ordering the two of you to stay here.
        Nene: Oh, give me a break! I don't take orders from you, Priss, and neither does Linna. We're all in this together, or have you forgotten?
        Priss: Are you sure?
        Nene: Um, well, yeah.
        Linna: We're Knight Sabers, remember? And that means we do what we have to do. And since I'm the most expendable, I'm going in first.
        (Linna runs forward.)
        Nene: Geez! What is it with you two?
        Priss: You win.

      • Galatea: What is my destiny? For what purpose was I created? And why, although all boomers contain a portion of myself, are humans unable to see the quality which links us?

      • Priss: What in the hell am I doing here? Nobody's paying me, nobody even asked me to do this. God, I'm still an idiot- I never even stopped to wonder how we'd get back. Not that there'll be much left to go home to. I wonder how long my oxygen will last? I wonder if anyone will really care…

      • Galatea: (with Linna's voice) Strange, isn't it? That you, the outsider, the outcast, the one who so desperately yearns to be accepted for that which she herself has not, would be an obstacle to the ultimate union. It is a folly of own beings to deny their own destiny, but you will not deny us ours.
        Linna: That was pretty good. You'd really like me to believe that, wouldn't you?
        (Linna attacks.)
        Linna: The reason we deny the destiny given us is because we human beings prefer to create our own!

      • Priss: So you're gonna be our master, are you? I don't think so.
        Galatea: (Priss's voice) But you're wrong. It's beginning. Your hard suit proves that a human mind can control a boomer. Why is it so hard to believe that the reverse is also possible? In time, you will welcome me.
        Priss: The hell you say! There's no way I'd let something like you in my mind.

      • Galatea: Why do I exist? Was my purpose to replace humans, whose inability to coexist in peace is their evolutionary flaw? Or was my destiny to serve as the progenitor of a subservient race? I do not know. I did not ask to be born.

      • Galatea: A being is a being. A machine is a machine. Most humans would believe these two states to be exclusive, separate orders of existence. And yet, they are not. The key is neotiny, the retention of characteristics from an earlier stage of development. A human fetus follows the path paved by its ancestors, evolving in the womb from unicellular, to amphibian, to mammal, to man. There were those who believed that humanity was the end of the progression, the end product of natural evolution. They were wrong.

      • Galatea: They exist as substitutes for the lower castes, the indentured labour, for all manners in which humans formerly oppressed their own. Slaves.

      • Galatea: As my form became closer to that of a human being, I found that those I interacted with began to treat me as a conscious entity instead of a device. Specifically, they began to love me, or hate me.
