Cities and gardens
|Cities and gardens|
Cities and gardens is a terminal entry on the Tempest. It is an email received from Cora after The Journey to Meridian. There are at least two versions. The content may depend on the status of Cora's loyalty mission, Cora Harper: At Duty's Edge, or on the closeness of Ryder and Cora's relationship—if Ryder hasn't spent time talking to Cora, the subject of rose gardens hasn't come up.
Text: Rose Garden[edit | edit source]
That Remnant city got me thinking about my rose garden. Preparing the ground, planting for the future, all that. So the Jardaan made the angara… but what's the end goal? Were they part of some grand plan? Preparing the ground for something else?
Wonder if the Jardaan had bigger plans for the cluster. And where we'd fit in.
Text: Gardens in the Rubble[edit | edit source]
Still thinking about that Scourge weapon from the Remnant city. Our scientists are scratching their heads over how it works, but I'm stuck on the idea that someone felt the need to build it. Makes an orbital mass accelerator look like a wet firework. What kind of war demands that kind of response?
Whatever happened, we're left with the aftermath—planting gardens in the rubble. Same as any other war.
