    • QUOTES (4)

      • Pilot: (referring to Dread Youth Cadet Erin) She's out there, my young twin, wondering why she sudddenly doesn't belong anymore. Just like I did...

      • Pilot: (after volunteering to go undercover at a Dread Youth facility) What was the first thing you taught me when you freed me from the Dread Youth? Our Prime goal- what we're all about?
        Captain Power: (grudgingly) To preserve life.
        Hawk: Hate to say it, but she's right.

      • Captain Power: Jennifer- you're not alone. We're with you, always.

      • Erin: What's wrong with me?! My eyes?!
        Pilot: Those are tears. You're frightened. It's okay.
        Erin: No, that's...
        Pilot: Evil? Is that what Dread told you? That feelings are bad, emotions are the enemy of logic? The Machine is perfection? Erin, you're human like me, flesh and blood!

    • NOTES (1)

      • The Dread Youth pledge of allegiance is "The world isn't perfect. We will make it perfect- mechanized, immortal, human minds and undying metal bodies. We are the Body Electric, Dread is our eyes and we are his fist. With our blood and our trust, he shall mold a new tomorrow."

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The Dread Youth in their pledge of allegiance refer to themselves as the "Body Electric". This phrase is from the Walt Whitman poem "I Sing the Body Electric", whose first stanza is, "I sing the body electric, The armies of those I love engirth me and I engirth them, They will not let me off till I go with them, respond to them, And discorrupt them, and charge them full with the charge of the soul."
