Space Ranger Oath

Post by Fox Storm on Thu Jan 12, 2012 3:53 pm





I noticed in "Large Target", when Buzz is reading the Star Command Manual, the motto says, "To Protect And..." something else that I can't make out. But this is cool because the motto for the police in RL is "To Protect and Serve." So Star Command IS para-military. Eh, who knew?

What do you think the rest of the motto says?

EDIT: it's the motto for the Los Angeles police in California, USA.

"To Protect and Defend"

The first letter looks like a D, and the rest of it makes a vague shape in the direction of "Defend", so I'm pretty sure that's what it says there (now, that I'm looking at it a second time, at least).

It could very well be "To Protect and Defend", but it seems a bit of a longer word, now that I'm looking at it again. I have no clue.

No, no, see? The letters are just spaced out. There are six shapes forming letters, each of them similar to the letters in "defend". It looks like Buzz's hand might be covering up other letters, but I don't think that's the case here.



^See? I didn't do the best job tracing it out, since I was using paint, but you can get the general idea of the shapes here, I'd think.

Ooohhhh....good point....well done, Alexa! It's official-the Star Command motto IS "To Protect and Defend". Who'd thunk it?

Well, the Ranger oath is "To protect and defend all sentient beings against injustice."

In Mind Warp and Root of Evil. Although in Root of Evil, Booster's pa adds his own bit onto the end.

Oooohhhh....huh! I never noticed that. So it's shown in Mind Warp and Root of Evil? Good observation! ^^

It helps that I watched Mind Warp recently.

Yeah, I remember noticing the Space Ranger Mission Manual having those words on the cover (it's also green too, hah!) in "Mindwarp", too. Given the rest of the line in "Root of Evil", then, that definitely is the Space Ranger oath--and it's similar to the police motto to? That's cool! I like finding out awesome stuff like this. Given all the continuity errors in BLoSC, it's always comforting to find stuff they actually STICK to!

I also took the liberty of renaming the thread in order for other members to locate our topic discussions easier in the future. :3

Yeah, it is fun to find stuff like the oath's similarity to the police motto in real life. It's fun AND educational! ^^

EDIT: To the Los Angeles police motto, excuse me. ^^;
