Alex Rogan: Grig, when did the hanger go up?
Grig: I told you, when Xur attacked.
Alex Rogan: And where were the Starfighters?
Grig: In the hanger.
Alex Rogan: You mean they're dead?
Grig: Death is a primitive concept; I prefer to think of them as battling evil, in another dimension!
Alex Rogan: In another dimension? How many are left?
Grig: Including youself?
Alex Rogan: Yeah!
Grig: One!


Alex Rogan: There's no fleet, no Starfighters, no plan? One ship, you me, and that's it?
Grig: Exactly. Xur thinks you're still on Earth. Classic military strategy: surprise attack.
Alex Rogan: It'll be a slaughter!
Grig: That's the spirit!
Alex Rogan: No, MY slaughter! One ship against the whole armada?
Grig: Yes, one gunstar against the armada. I've always wanted to fight a desperate battle against incredible odds.

Maggie Gordon: Alex in space? Is this for real?
Beta: Yes! That's what I'm trying to tell you - it's ALL for real.

Grig: Remember, Death Blossom delivers only one massive volley at close range... theoretically.
Alex Rogan: What do you mean "theoretically"?
Grig: After all, D.B. has never been tested. It might overload the systems, blow up the ship!
Alex Rogan: What are you worried about, Grig? Theoretically, we should already be dead.
Grig: [shrugs and chortles, confirming Alex's last comment was probably true] Open Death Blossom packs, switches on.

Alex Rogan: We did it.
Grig: Yes, we actually did, didn't we?
Alex Rogan: The command ship!

Lord Kril: Damage report!
Ko-dan Officer: Guidance system out. Auxiliary system out.
Lord Kril: Divert! Divert!
Ko-dan Officer: She won't answer the helm! We're locked into the moon's gravitation pull. What do we do?
Lord Kril: [his eyepiece swings over left eye] We die.

Jane Rogan: [gestering to Alex's Gunstar ship, shocked] Alex, what is all this?
Alex Rogan: I, uh, I've been to another planet, Ma.
