->We knew there would be a price to pay, but we thought it might be one we could bear, or that we could find some way to avoid paying it.\\
It was not, and we could not.\\
The price we have paid is everything. In an instant, so fast there is no time to react, let alone respond, the [Empire] is... gone. Where once there was thriving colonies, there is now only death.

->Imagine yourself taking a stroll through Manhattan, somewhere north of 68th street, deep inside Central Park, late at night. It would be nice to meet someone friendly, but you know that the park is dangerous at night. Thatís when the monsters come out. Thereís always a strong undercurrent of drug dealings, muggings, and occasional homicides. It is not easy to distinguish the good guys from the bad guys. They dress alike, and the weapons are concealed. The only difference is intent, and you canít read minds. Stay in the dark long enough and you may hear an occasional distance shriek or blunder across a body. How do you survive the night? The last thing you want to do is shout, ďIím here!Ē The next to last thing you want to do is reply to someone who shouts, ďIím a friend!Ē What you would like to do is find a policeman, or get out of the park. But you donít want to make noise or move towards a light where you might be spotted, and it is difficult to find either a policeman or your way out without making yourself known. Your safest option is to hunker down and wait for daylight, then safely walk out. There are, of course, a few obvious differences between Central Park and the universe. There is no policeman. There is no way out. And the night never ends.
