I suppose that's one way to keep it out of the hands of the enemy.

Almost certainly DAMES. The Can o' Sky defense systems seemed set up for hiding from them and it's the clearest reason why a galaxy wide war would have absolutely no baryonic survivors except for a ship that enforced a no-active-annie-plant rule.

I'm with it being the Pa'anuri. We know they can manipulative gravity on a grand scale, they're actively hostile to baryonic life, and we know that they were why the Oafa went into retreat.

Yeah, I'm with it being the DaMEs/Pa'anuri.

The Oafans specifically fought the Pa'anuri, and it is why they retreated to Eina-Afa. It's mentioned in this strip. What we don't know is if the Pa'anuri were the cause of the cyclic galactic extinctions that caused the Oafan to build their shelters in the first place.

Admittedly given that first the gatekeepers and then Petey were able to fight the Pa'anuri to a standstil I would think that the original Oafans would have been able to do it as well. They had the necessary technology and far greater infrastructure. So I'm betting something else smashed them first. And then the Pa'anuri showed up to finish the job.

Also, no one's so much as mentioned the Pa'anuri at all this arc, which is kind of odd considering that Petey has been fighting a full-fledged war over in Andromeda against them. For them to make no appearances whatsoever would surprise me.

I think the F'sherl Ganni might be the originators of gate-cloning, and it let them produce TAD systems on a scale not even the ancient Oafans could match. We saw how deadly that could be during the core war.

Well the latest comic pretty much confirms it was the Pa'anuri, even if he is taking a really long time to come out and say it.

It's only long when you're reading one strip per day.
