Text Box: A drop in the bucket to the trillions of lives that makes up our little empire in space.
Image: The man's face, scarred. He looks like he's struggling to not scream.
Text Box: Two moons, devastated.
Image: Space. The A moon sits in the foreground, another in the background. We can clearly see that both moons are wrecked, debris, both metal and rock orbit them, forming rough rings around their circumference. In the foreground, a corpse floats.
Text Box: And they don't even want to believe it was real.
Image: Another shot of the devastation, closer to one of the moons. You can clearly see the havoc whatever weapons were used played with the moon. Chunks of the planet have been carved out.

Text Box: Not that it matters much. It's all being swept under the rug.

Text Box: We're all friends now.

Text Box: The aliens come in peace.
Image: Close up of the human and alien shaking hands. Both are waving.
Text Box: ...Since the other method failed so spectacularly.
Image: Another shot of the devestation.
Image: Man rubbing his jaw.
Text Box: They're supposedly here to help now.
Image: Silhouette of the man on the gravestone, looking down. Other graves are nearby.
Text Box: They've got technology, we've got space.
Image: A valley, one of the Alien Ships is being gutted to turn into a Colony.
Text Box: It's a beautiful arrangement.
Image: The press conference of smiles again.
