Notes & Trivia Edit

Quotes Edit

  • Seamus Harper: I don't suppose you have any ammo left?
  • Tyr Anasazi: I've got one round.
  • Seamus Harper: One round is good, one round is good.
  • Tyr Anasazi: Would you like to close your eyes? (Harper nods his head, breathing heavy, closing his eyes. Tyr points his gun at Harper's head)
  • Seamus Harper: Wai, wai, wai, wait! I was thinking, maybe they're not so tough, maybe maybe we can take them in hand to hand combat. (laughs) What do you think? Heh heh heh!
  • Tyr Anasazi: That's my boy!


  • Dylan Hunt: If things start to go wrong, I want you to leave me behind. Gather everyone together and get to the Maru as fast as you can.
  • Beka Valentine: You want me to abandon you here?
  • Dylan Hunt: These people are my responsibility.
  • Beka Valentine: Yeah, and you're mine. When I agreed to help you, you and Rommie became part of my crew every bit as much as I became part of yours. I don't leave crew members behind. Ever.
  • Dylan Hunt: Do you regret it... signing aboard with me?
  • Beka Valentine: And risking my life? Battling Nietzscheans and Restors and Magog and half the lunatics in the galaxy? All for a cause that's been dead for over three hundred years. I wouldn't have missed it for the world.


  • Dylan Hunt: It's a little-known law of thermodynamics, 'The Conservation of Optimism: There's only so much to go around.'
  • Beka Valentine: In that case, it's simple. Lower your expectations.
  • Dylan Hunt: You're right. I officially declare this glass 12% full.
  • Beka Valentine: That's the spirit.

Opening quotation Edit

"Screams of a billion murdered Stars
Give Lie to the night's Peace,
While we cling in desperation to the Few
Fragile spinning stones we call Worlds
Wayfinder First Order Hasturi, aka "The Mad Perseid"; 217 AFC
