Quotes

Sky: Your world is in trouble Joshua. We have watched from a great distance, and observed that you have become a danger. Your weaponry is too advanced. You have endangered your own planet. And have become too big of a threat to others in the future. The end is here. But your world can be saved. It can save itself. If you can show me that there is value in human life, the destruction can be stopped. Prove this to me, and there will be a tomorrow.
