Re: EpDis: A Voice In The Wilderness Part 1

If a Zathras was shuttling people around during these episodes, both the sense of urgency and sacrifice created by the situation would have been lost.

"Great pardonings, but machine needing guardian. Old one dying... need new center. You being replacement, yes?" isn't as effective as having Draal see the consequences of inaction, feel the sense of wonder and sacrifice directly from Varn or Flarn or whatever that dude's name was.

And, of course, the machine was acting haywire- maybe the Zathrases couldn't fly away.
