ZONN: Don’t be so hard on yourself.  I was the one who hared off trying to be a hero. And we wound up 1500 miles from where we should have been behind the Urtt territories, and we really by rights should all be dead.  Even if you hadn’t stopped looking, you might have wasted time and resources you couldn’t afford without ever finding us.


ZONN: And look at you:  Ipola, you’ve made something truly great.  You made sacrifices for the greater good again and again and …you triumphed as few people in history ever could.  And, obviously, you didn’t really need me there to do it.

IPOLA: Says you.

ZONN: Besides – it’s all in the past, we can’t change it now.  Let’s take what we have.

IPOLA: Do we have anything – really?  You and I, after all this time?

ZONN: We have tonight.  And that’s not nothing. For the future?  Well …

IPOLA: For that – Hrraarch, my Aburor friend will return in five days time at noon.  She will land if she feels it’s safe, but only if she sees me. If she doesn’t, she will return to her people alone.  That’s our agreement.

ZONN: So soon.

IPOLA: The Sun and the Moon can’t share the sky for long, I’m afraid.

ZONN: But they do, though, don’t they?  

IPOLA: Yes. Yes, they do, however … briefly.
