"The technology is mystifying and ungodly, the culture is distant and inaccessible, the enemies are unimaginable and without number, and the reward is inconsequential. Is this Imperial army the place for me? Is it really the place for my people? It's hard to believe that we fight to protect our land, our planet, when the horrors that we fight have never been seen at home. It's hard to say we are here to protect our culture when the soil we fight on is so alien. Can we really hold together in conditions like this?
"My Commissar says we can because we have to. Let's hope that he's right."
