"BWAHAHAHA! You finally made it! Just in time for me to stomp you into space bits!"
"WHAA--?! IT'S YOU! That's it, Mario! I'm gonna stomp you into space bits!"
"Finally! You got here just in time to see the creation of my galaxy in the center of the universe! WATCH AND WEEP! From this galaxy, I'll rule a great galactic empire with Peach by my side. It will last forever! I will rule every pitiful corner of the universe. So, Mario, as you can see, I got big plans. And stomping you is at the top of my list!"
"NOOOOO! My Galaxy! My empire! This can't be happening..."
"AAAAUGH! A BEE! ...What?! Mario? Hey...it's YOU! We escaped from Peach's Castle too! But then we thought Bowser would get us and then we got lost with Luigi...Oh! I just remembered! We found a Power Star! I'm sure you need this, so here, take it."
"Mario! Somehow we made it too! We'll help you get the Power Stars and save Princess Peach! You can count on us, Mario! We're all in this together!"
"We've finished building the Starshroom starship. We'll use it to search for Power Stars! And we, the members of the Toad Brigade, will be the brave crew!"
"And this brigade needs a bold leader so I nominate...um...well..me! Under my command, the galaxies will see the bravery of the Toad Brigade!"
"See you around the galaxies!"
"Mario! My brigade boarded the enemy fleet, and none have returned! As captain, I would go save them myself, but I'm much too busy at the moment...and scared."
"And who might you be? A physician, we presume? No matter. We are in the most vexing predicament and require assistance. The most furious itchiness plagues our entire being! It must be stopped! Please find the source at once!"
"Yes that's the ticket!"
"Ah...that feels goooood!"
"Ahoo hoo! That tickles!"
"My thanks! You have shown much bravery, New Bee. We trust that we may rely on you in the future!"
"The neighbors are causing trouble again. We would be most grateful for your assistance!"
"I've been watching you from here. This place is called the gateway to the starry sky."
"My name is Rosalina. I watch over and protect the cosmos. To save your special one, you'll need the power to travel through space."
"Luma can give you this power. I will entrust you with his care."
"Disaster has struck us, just as it has visited you. With Luma, I hope you can rescue the Grand Stars. May the stars shine down on you..."
"The beacon is lit now! It shines very weakly, maybe only as bright as a Class 6 star, but at least the poor Lumas will survive now. Oh, thank you for saving the Grand Star. These star people are my family... They mean so much to me. Welcome to the Comet Observatory. It's my home and also home to the Lumas."
"You see, we travel the starry skies. We pass by this area 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 also took 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 could 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 right now, powered by the Star Power you recovered, is this one...the Terrace. Please go to the Terrace and recover the Power Stars from the galaxies found there."
"Do you hear the baby stars? These newborns will grow up to become galaxies someday. When stars die, they turn to stardust and scatter across the cosmos. Eventually, that stardust reforms to create a new star... And so the cycle of life continues. But the cycle never repeats itself in quite the same way.... So...you'll see."
"Yes... All new life... Carries the essence of stars... Even all of you..."
