"You see, we travel the starry skies. We pass by this area once every one hundred years, but we suddenly stopped in front of this planet. A strange force had latched onto our ship, pulling away Star Bits and our power source, Power Stars. Our ship had lost power, so it entered a deep hibernation state in which it could not move. Those who took your special one picked up the Power Stars... And discovered the power to cross the universe."
"Please, I have a request..."
"This observatory uses Star Power to project images of the galaxies that are scattered across space."
"And...there is a chance we can use our few remaining stars to look for other Power Stars."
"These round rooms are called domes. We observe galaxies from domes such as these. But the only one that is working now, powered by the Star Power you restored, is this one...the Terrace."
"Please go to the Terrace and try to recover the Power Stars from the galaxies you can see from there."
"You should go to the Terrace first. Please rescue the Power Stars in the galaxies you see there."
"Mario/Luigi... Your name is Mario/Luigi, isn't it? That is what I heard from your friends who just arrived. Mario/Luigi... It has such a nice ring."
"Your friends are waiting for you in the Garage. I think they want to tell you something, so you'd best hurry on over there."
"Your friends are waiting for you in the Garage. I think they want to tell you something, so please hurry there."
"That ball of flame represents the power of the observatory. We call it the beacon. When you recover a Grand Star, a little Star Power will be restored, and the beacon will grow."
"The Comet Observatory can use that power to fly through the universe."
"If the beacon's power grows enough, this ship will be able to fly to the center of the universe. It looks like your friends are going to give you a hand. You should get started by rescuing the Power Stars in the galaxies you can see from the domes."
"Prankster Comets have very strange effects on galaxies. If you want to learn more about these exotic comets, ask the purple Luma over there."
"You rescued another Grand Star, and power has returned to another dome in the back of the observatory! Hmmm, but I still don't think we have the Star Power we need to fly the observatory through the universe. "
"The villain who kidnapped your special one took her far from here, to the center of the universe."
" Once our Star Power is restored, the observatory will be able to go there. Then you can reunite with your special one..."
"Once our Star Power is restored, the observatory will be able to travel to the center of the universe. Please go to the domes in the back and do your best to recover more Star Power!"
"Thanks to you and your friends, all of the domes on the lower level are working again."
"Once the Engine Room on the upper level has power, the whole observatory will be working. Then the Comet Observatory will fly as a starship once again."
"And you will be able to fly to your special one in the center of the universe..."
"Once the Engine Room on the upper level is powered on, this observatory will function as a starship again. Then you will be able to see your special one in the center of the universe..."
"We have ascertained the location of your special one. Please take a look at the circle by your feet."
"That number represents the Power Stars you need to reach the center of the universe. That number will decrease with each Power Star you recover."
"And when it reaches zero, the Comet Observatory will regain full power and fly as a starship again. And then we will be able to reach the center of the universe."
"When we recover the remaining Power Stars, the number on the platform will go down to zero. Then the Comet Observatory will be able to get you close to your special one."
"Now that we've recovered so many Grand Stars, the beacon is almost too bright to look at."
"Once the observatory works as a starship again, we can bring you the center of the universe! Then we can get to your special one. We just need a few more Power Stars... You must help us!"
"The beacon is so bright now, it's hard to look at!
"Once you recover the remaining Power Stars, the observatory will fly as a starship again. Then we can lead you to your special one in the center of the universe."
"The Comet Observatory has full power! Now it can fly through the cosmos again."
"It's time. Do you want to go to the location of your special one at the center of the universe?"
"Welcome back! I knew you would return eventually."
"Please look down at your feet."
"This number you see represents the number of Power Stars you need to access another world. Whether you succeed or fail, just attempting the challenge will show something about your character. "
"We now have enough Star Power to go to another world. But before that, we must help your special one."
"Are you prepared to travel to the center of the universe?"
"All right, then. Off we go!"
"Please speak to me again when you are ready."
"I can see your brother/twin from here. If you ask him, I bet he'll help you search for Power Stars."
"And I'm sure he has a lot to tell you. You should go speak to him over there by the Garage."
"This planet... It's very dear to me."
"I looked forward to visiting this planet with the Lumas every one hundred years..."
"The Luma that's been travelling with you may also grow up to become a star someday. Some Lumas become planets...some become comets...and few become Power Stars."
"I'm travelling with them while they look for a place to be reborn."
"Will you journey there with me? The two of us could give a marvelous show together." (3DS version)
"Come, then. Let us sail for the whimsical world of the Gymnastics Plus event!" (3DS version)
"I have been watching all of your performances. It is just as the rumors say. Your potential is positively celestial! I would like to challenge you to a match. But I must warn you... When it comes to the clubs, I am no slouch, either. I simply feel we could have a FABULOUS competition together. Do not expect to win, however!" (Wii U version)
"I may have won, but the distance between us was not so far. Now, to prove that I deserve this medal...and to be called a gymnastics legend someday." (Wii U version)
"It's a shame I lost, but I'm thrilled I was able to face a competitor such as your self. I hope we meet again!" (Wii U version)
