"I'm Fire Flash, he's Big T," said a female voice from across the table.

"Taldaris," corrected a telepathic voice.

"He's a super-powerful alien protoss, I'm a lame cartoon pony with no wings or horn. I'm pretty, he isn't. He does psionics, I don't. I like kicking stuff, he likes energy swords. He can't go visit his homeworld, but I can."
