Part 42: The Future of the World

Last time there was a big fight agains various iterations of the Qualia and then this happened:

Looks like it's back and stronger than ever before! Whatever shall we do?

Well, that looks like a whole fleet of ships from... uh, somewhere.

Please try not to think too hard about the time-space related paradoxes that all of this involves. Just sit back and enjoy the fireworks!

Correct. It is also possible to send you back to the exact place and time right before coming to the Ark...
Then that's what I would like you to do for us.

And there is only one couple remaining... But Ayuta is not from the same planet as Shea.

I've decided too.
If I ever give birth to a girl, I'm going to name her "Theia".
She will be a witness to the future of our world.
Thank you, Shea.

And it's our favourite closing credits, with a slightly different picture behind them... I wonder...

Oh, right, of course it's him...

So, I don't know about you, but...

...I wonder what will happen if I now try to...
