Cochise is asked what he fights for. Cochise, the Spock Speak full alien who hasn't had much meaningful dialogue since he appeared, deliver us this:
President Hathaway: What are you fighting them for, resources, territories..?
Cochise: A flower, the "Catarius". It blooms on my homeland when the weather begins to warm.
Hathaway: A flower so valuable it caused a inter-galactic war?
Cochise: The Catarius has no value to anyone, except me.
Mason: Something you remember from your childhood?
Cochise: Actually, I have never seen it. Just as I have never held the soil of my homeland in my hands. Like the rest of my comrades, I was born in a ship that has left our world hundreds of years ago. All that I know of the Catarius is an image in a datafile...and a poem my brother read to me when I was young.
Mason: You never told me that you had a brother.
Cochise: He...he is deceased; on a planet orbiting one of those spots of light up there. A most weary, unbright cinder, far from the home I have never known. He was born to war, grew up in it, and it eventually claimed him. He died for a world he never saw. Be thankful that you fight on the soil of your homeland, gentleman. That is a gift. I will never see my home, but, if we win this war, my children of my children may one day, gaze upon the real Catarius. That is what I'm fighting for, Mr.President.
