I don't lie to people in the interviews, but I tend to stick to a positive and optimistic outlook on what we're dealing with. We're facing a lot of crisis and brutal reality isn't always what people need at this time. I wanted to position myself as someone with a sense of purpose, confidence, and direction.
The other arks are missing. A huge portion of our people have been exiled. None of the golden worlds worked out. Our original Pathfinder is dead. The leadership of the Initiative is dead. Now is the time to rally, not focus on how bad things are.
I focused on the solution, not the problem.
