"We, the adopted children of the Golden Star, have come to resemble our world in a great many ways. As it floated, bright and unequalled, in the skies of past centuries, so do we bring illumination and inspiration to the struggling civilization of Humanity. As it gave up its secrets slowly, grudgingly, so do we speak only what others need to hear and show only what needs to be seen. As it was molded to be a home and haven for us, so have we ourselves proven adaptable and accommodating to the harsh impositions of life on a new world."
