Upon arriving in the Andromeda galaxy, Clonia guides them to an artificial planet where they discover the original Sessily Veder, who explains that although she was born as a human and lived her early life on Cadwal, she is actually another artificial lifeform like Clonia. While growing up on Cadwal and not knowing her alien origins, Sessily had played her role in saving Cadwal by helping Glawen reveal the scheme by which Smonny and the Yips had planed to capture Araminta Station.
