After this slide (which is silent), the video is narrated, so I'll just transcribe what the narrator says.

"Thirty-two years have passed since the Great War. The Shivans vanished half a lifetime ago. And now, we live in the mausoleum of history."

"We inherit the legacy of ghosts who haunt these ruins. The elders call us the lost generation."

"I remember stories of a glorious civilization. Of cities with spires that reached the sun."

"Of a blue planet, with vast seas."

"Of people with myths of humanity everlasting. And children, who saw in the embers of dying stars, the future of their race."

"And they hurled themselves into the void of space with no fear."

"They say our people have no present..."

"... only a past filled with horror..."

"... and a future they can only dream of."

"Now, we forge a new alliance;"

"To guard the tomb of space;"

"And to find within its cold expanse the salvation of our race."
