After much inactivity I have returned. My new character is Irsian Palinev (My previous character's successor as High Commander of the Verviedyn Imperial Navy)

Camera AI: Input Accepted. Replaying...
Palinev: I do not care what Earth needs. What WE need is what matters, and the Emperor demands we stay here.
Althicrion: You remember the first war. You were a mere Talon commander, but you remember.
Palinev: I remember you [unintelligible]. You know what happened after that.
Althicrion: What the endermen did with that tech does not matter. They already would have developed...
Palinev: A BATTLESHIP! You crashed an entire BATTLESHIP. Do you know how much that [unintelligible] technological development? Do you know what happens when an inferior species gets control of...

Althicron: Ate you challenging me to a duel? Insolent welp!
Palinev: 20 seconds.
Althicron: Very well. I accept your challenge. Now, we you stop the countdown? Weapons...? I choose...
Althicron: Tachyon Lashers at two paces.
Palinev: You... WHAT? Are you insane?
Althicron: You said it yourself. I have nothing to lose. My career is ruined after that fiasco with the endermen. Logically, the best course in a duel I would lose anyway is to bring you down with me.
Palinev: Very well. I forfeit. I will step down if you wish.
Althicron: That will not be necessary. Set course for Earth.
