Ender's Game - Sacrifice by ziwu Ender's Game - Sacrifice by ziwu
Ender: "We had pilots with our ships, didn't we."
Graff: "Yes."
Ender: "I was ordering pilots to go in and die and I didn't even know it."
Graff: "They knew it, Ender, and they went anyway. They knew what it was for."

- Ender's Game p.298

This shot is when the last few surviving International Fleet pilots are dropping their star fighters into the Formic home planet's atmosphere to fire off their MD Device. Ever since I read Ender's Game way back in '93 or '94, I had this scene stuck in my mind. But I never actually took the time to make it. Now that the Ender movie is finally announced for 2008, I thought I might as well finish this up.

The reason I like this scene's because, even though as a species, we're selfish and self-preserving creatures; there are times when we sacrifice everything for the sake of others, that's what makes us special. Anyway, to all those who sacrificed and will continue to sacrifice, thank you.

FULL VIEW PLEASE
(Or I'll blow up your house with the Little Doctor! ;P)
