Looking back over the countless wars of the Conflict Age, I still feel something like regret. It wasn’t our whole intention to eradicate the Conflict Races, it was simply the most effective way to bring in a new era of order…
It was a shame to see so many species vanish before the dawn of the World Of Progress, especially in the case of the Ty-Tesh – the only race I felt we truly betrayed.
But I feel nothing but gladness when I recall the Root Dogs. They were the most dangerous of all the Conflict Aliens because they were constantly adapting. Each defeat only increase the Core Scientists’ knowledge, and ‘The Herd’ grew stronger and deadlier as a result.
Everything we did, however terrible it may seem – it was worth it all to see the Root Dogs die”.
