->''When my father heard this, he was beside himself and said, "How dare those people intrude into my country without my authorisation and permission? Who are these people and what are their ways?" The messengers answered, "Lord, these people cannot but be gods, for they claim to have come by the wind. They are bearded people, very beautiful and white. They eat out of silver plates. Even their [[CallARabbitASmeerp sheep]], who carry them, are large and wear silver shoes. They [[ThisIsMyBoomstick throw thunder]] like the sky; see yourself if people like this and that in this manner behaves and govern themselves, if they are gods. Moreover, we have witnessed with our own eyes that they talk to white cloths by themselves and that they call some of us by our names without having been informed by anyone and only looking into the sheets, which they hold in front of them; and moreover it is people that only looks it in the hands and the face; and the clothes they have are better than yours, because they have gold and silver. Who could people of this manner and fortune be but gods?"''

->'''Technomage:''' Captain, do you believe there is such a thing as magic?\\
'''Sheridan:''' When I was 12, I used to sit in my dad's garden, the air full of the smell of orange blossoms, watching the sky, dreaming of faraway places. Back then, I think I believed in just about everything. But now, I dunno. I do think there are some things we don't understand. If we went back in time 1000 years and tried to explain this place to people, they could only accept it in terms of magic.\\

'''Technomage:''' Then perhaps it ''is'' magic. The magic of the human heart. Focused and made manifest by technology. Every day, you here create greater miracles than the burning bush.\\
'''Sheridan:''' Maybe, but God was there first and he didn't need solar batteries and a fusion reactor to do it.\\
'''Technomage:''' Perhaps. Perhaps not.
