Jezef took it with the detachment that still irritated Tulan. "The end of a hundred years of dreams; and we go back under the yoke. Well, they've always been soft masters."

Unless....the situation gets to the point where cooperation can finally be sought to utilize the assets remaining to prevent extinction.
