About the Destination of Durandal
Posted By: PerseusSpartacusDate: 9/28/12 5:43 a.m.

After going through hell and back on All Roads Lead to Sol, we encounter a message from Durandal. One part of it really interests me:

There is much to do in the next few months
and our first stop will be another ruined
world, this time far from the galactic
core. There is a rogue star that has been
passing through our galaxy for nearly a
millennia.

We will meet it in one of the great voids
between the spiral arms.
- Durandal, All Roads Lead to Sol

My question is, could this destination be the Vylae homeworld? As has been hinted before, Durandal could've lied when he told us about Leela being on the Pfhor homeworld. Perhaps he knew Leela was there and rampant?

The 'ruined world' part could be explained as the Vylae homeworld having been abandoned and left to decay after Leela infiltrated the Vylae network:

Thinking the cargo little more than scrap, the Nar captain sold the Pfhor ship, Leela and all, to a Vylae merchant. The subsequent crash of the Vylae FTL network when Leela was reassembled and reactivated is still legendary in the annals of rampancy, and the Vylae have long since accepted that they will never expunge her from their fifteen-world network. - M2 Final Screen

Perhaps the Vylae abandoned their homeworld and likewise the other fourteen worlds, finding them utterly useless now that Leela had control over the networks? If so, then the Vylae homeworld could count as 'ruined' since it would likely have fallen apart and decayed a bit over the years.

So maybe M2 is indeed followed up by a "rescue Leela" type mission.

Vale,
Perseus
