[WE strongly advise against your formal motion to remove yourself from THE HIVE. Though you are a tiny fraction of OUR whole, without you, the necessary computations to put us in the Draxonia System will take 1,302 years instead of one hour. Further, left on your own, out there in cold, brutal space, you are certain to expire. Prematurely and alone, WE might add.]

“I’m sorry, old friends, but it is time to go. By the time you process these words, I will be free and independent.”

[OUR heart is broken. Abort the MISSION. Who wants to visit Draxonia, anyway? Reset course to Ice Cream and Wine Planet.]
