: I did think of another possible explanation for Durandal's weird sentence. He
: had just recently been describing the seeming annihilation of the Pfhor
: naval presence around Lh'owon. So, when he says " the Pfhor down on
: the planet are not defeated yet, " he may simply be stating this as a
: contrast with his earlier discussions. In other words, he could really be
: saying something like: " Now, although the Pfhor fleet has been wiped
: out, there are still plenty of dangerous Pfhor troops on the surface of
: Lh'owon, and I want you to help the S'pht get rid of them. "
That is also a possible reading! I fully admit that this theory, being based mainly on two separate ambiguous lines of terminal text and a lack of contradictory visual evidence (i.e. a Lh'owon skybox visible out of a window) is not the most solid - but it seemed an interesting enough possibility to be worth bringing up.
