Talk:Final Defense at Raynet
Is is evident that only the Syreen participated in the final defense at Raynet. Here are the relevant quotes:
Talana: "she was part of the final defense at Raynet... she didn't make it back. When the Ur-Quan caught us in open space, we all thought we were going to die but then, instead of killing us, the Ur-Quan offered us a choice we could join the ranks of their combat thralls, or we could be slave-shielded on our homeworld."
Hayes: "Then, in 2134, a dramatic shift in the balance of power took place [...] our fleets were pushed back from the Indi-Mira line to beyond Raynet. Holding Rigel cost grievously in Chenjesu forces and the Ur-Quan, recognizing this weakness shifted to focus the brunt of their forces on Procyon. That was the last we heard from the Chenjesu and Mmrnmhrm. A few weeks later, waves of ships hit us from all directions. When Ceres Station, our outpost in the Asteroid belt, fell to the Hierarchy, we knew we were beaten but we fought on anyway."
You see, the Ur-Quan defeated only the Syreen at Raynet, so only the Syreen were here. Also, from what Hayes and Talana say, it is implied that the Syreen and the Arilou were caught at Raynet while the Front was still receding from Indi-Mira to beyond Raynet, (the Yehat and the Shofixti had already retreated; the Chenjesu and Mmrnmhrm were defending Rigel; the Earthlings were cut off at Sol from Raynet.), and the Arilou ran away, leaving the Syreen alone.Valaggar 19:03, 16 April 2007 (CEST)
