Narrator:With Tagon, Kevyn, and the rest of the crew safe, there are just a couple of loose ends that remain to be tied up. There is, after all, the little matter of a star exploding that needs to be looked into.
Narrator:The sphere superstructure that kept stellar material from interfering with the toroidal feeder gate is gone, but the gravitic controls stationed in kuiper orbit remain.The toroid collapses, but rather than being converted into energy, the controlled collapse emits a gravitational pulse that rips the star in half. It is a truly fascinating process.
Narrator:It is also a process you do not want to watch from up close. We've backed waaaaay up, just in case.
Narrator:Note: Backing up is not a transparent effort to make things easier on the artist.
Narrator:From this distance, it's kind of hard to tell that the resulting increase in stellar radiation propelled the stellar sail fragments, dragging some nine trillion f'sherl-ganni to safety, Instead of incinerating them.
Narrator:That might have been quite difficult to render, but as stated before, we backed up for safety, not ease-of-art.
Author:Don't make me reach for the white-out.
