So, to escape the war they came from, which wound up killing off every other member of both of their species, they want to start an even bigger one. One that is likely to result in even more casualties than the one they are fleeing.

Makes me wonder if the unnamed species hunting them had the right idea about humans, especially since I could see such a thing happening here on earth. We humans seem bound and determined to destroy ourselves, and if we found other species we would just involve them in the process.

This seems weirdly like the plot of the comic Vexxar.

The protagonist failed to conquer Earth, then started a gigantic war between his own species (Bleen) and some ancient enemies of theirs (Lattroxx) in order to distract his emperor and escape the usual death sentence for failure.

And that worked about as well as you'd expect, in the highjinks-and-billions-of-deaths ensue sort of way.

over seven billion people on this planet and we are determined to destroy ourselves? I don't get it. if anything it looks to me like we need to find some more real estate.

truth is, it is in our sin nature to fight. no matter how small or big the trouble is. more space just gives us a more space to bleed.

The idea of starting a war bigger than the one that destroyed both their civilizations is a cartoon supervillain kind of idea - the horrible, evil plan to kill everybody for revenge, even those who had nothing to do with your misfortune. The idea that billions, or trillions, or quadrillions, hell,we don't know how many should be slaughtered in this war, the idea that entire cultures and civilizations should be ground into dust and destroyed -- for the sake of a fucking escape plan???

That's so coldly unbelievably evil it buggers the imagination. That's a psychopathic idea, one that would earn Sam a place in history alongside the most evil and destructive beings who ever lived.

Sam doesn't seem like a total psycho nutball; he's bound to have some plan which isn't that.
