"It's easy to forget how small we really are in the universe. Just grains of sand in an unending sea. Billions of other galaxies out there, teeming with life and out of our reach. But today, with the launch of the Sojourn and its journey through the Super Relay, all of that changes. Today, we truly set out into the unknown. Today, we boldly go where noone has gone before." - Captain Peter Smith, 2190
The Sojourn. Beautiful. Sleek. State of the art. The product of collaboration on a scale never before seen in the galaxy. Despite his own painful reasons for taking the assignment, Captain Smith felt truly proud to be her captain. This was an honour comparable to being given Spectre status, not that it would mean much where they were going, regardless of what first contact with extragalactic races might be like.
