Season 1[edit]

Opening narration[edit]

"T. C." McQueen: We thought we were alone. We believed the universe was ours. Until one night in 2063, on a Earth colony 16 light-years away, they struck. Now we are at war. We fight when called, in space, on land, and at sea. To lose this war means more than defeat, to surrender is to never go home. All of us must rise to the call... above and beyond.

Episode 1: Pilot Part 1[edit]

Colonial Governor Borman: Tonight we stand beneath a new heaven. After 150 years of calling out, the silence of the universe assures us that life is unique. We are alone. You and I are among the first to bring life to the stars - to this planet. The farthest any human has ever ventured. I know there are those at home who say that we are here only as a status symbol. Others say that we are fortune hunters, or that we're running away. But I know we're here because of faith - faith in each other, in a better world. The rocket fuel that brought us here can be burnt away, but our belief in ourselves, in one another, in the future, never can be; never will be.

Sergeant Major Frank Bougus: I am your senior drill instructor, I am here to turn you slimey civilian cesspool parasites into United States Marine Corp space aviators, invoking bowel wrenching fear into the dark hearts of your enemies

Sergeant Major Frank Bougus: I am a road map, i will lead and you will follow, i will teach and you will learn, when you leave my academy you will be weapons, focussed and full of purpose, Hot Rod rocket god's of percision and strenght, terrorising across the cosmos and hunting for heaven

Sergeant Major Frank Bougus: I am not an officer, I work for a living!

Sergeant Major Frank Bougus: In space, no one can hear you scream, unless it is the war cry of the U.S. Marines!

Sergeant Major Frank Bougus: You might fly an individual rocket but you are a squadron, you are a team, and if your risk your ass you risk the teams

Secretary General of The United Nations, Spencer Chartwell:No matter where you stand on this planet, either beneath the sun's warmth, or the cold of night, the storm cloud's of war gather over our home, soon they may fall in unceasing thunder bolts, we must stand together against the deluge, we cannot possibly retreat

Sergeant Major Frank Bougus: War is what Marines pray for

Sergeant Major Frank Bougus: As part of your training, there is no commanding officer. You are on your own. From this moment until we win this war, the only easy day is yesterday.
