Grayson: You know, ever since we lost the Moclans, I’ve had this pit in my stomach about the Kaylon. Wondering how much time we have left. When are they coming for us? And now, it’s all over.
Dr. Finn: So what are we gonna stress about?

Kaylon Primary: We have reviewed the organizational structure of your Council and its history of deliberations. What you call ‘representative democracy’ is a most inefficient form of governance.
Admiral Halsey: Maybe. But the one thing you can say for democracy is that all other forms of government are even worse. Over thousands of years and on countless planets, it’s the best system anyone’s ever come up with to ensure the strong don’t dominate the weak. At least not for long.
