I don't get the new note

Dbz77: I don't understand the note you added ("It appears that Quark had not been under Hazar's command..."). Where are you getting that? --GrantB 14:07, February 10, 2011 (UTC)

Quark went against Hazar's plan in attacking the Explorer. Dbz77 18:00, February 10, 2011 (UTC)dbz77
Quark is pretty clearly and unambiguously subordinate to Hazar. I wouldn't try to extrapolate too much from Quark's gross insubordination. The way it's overlooked is probably worth a mention, though.
By the way, I don't know if you are very familiar with VV/Dairugger, but the translation/adaptation is often very dodgy. Character motivations aren't consistent, Hazar flip-flops good guy/bad guy very often, and some episodes (one in particular comes to mind) makes next-to-no sense. If you try to explain everything you'll go insane. Often I find it's better just to point out what's off and let the reader draw his own conclusions. --GrantB 23:04, February 10, 2011 (UTC)
I did watch the original subtitled Dairugger episode on youTube, and there was no suggestion that Rackal (Quark's counterpart) disobeyed Teles (Hazar's counterpart).
And yes, it was off that Quark was not immediately thrown in the brig or stockade after this episode, especially since he failed to destroy the Explorer or Voltron. 96.229.217.189 01:51, February 11, 2011 (UTC)dbz77
Yeah, in Dairugger it wasn't insubordination. That's not Voltron though, so I don't mention it here. (It could go in the "Notable Edits" section, but I didn't think it was notable enough.) You'll see I did add that Quark's insubordination was not explicitly addressed. --GrantB 05:17, February 11, 2011 (UTC)
Would not Hazar's conflicted portrayal be an illustration of the conflict between his desire for peace and his duty to obey his commander-in-chief?
Of course, it is possible that Hazar believes that destroying Voltron would convince Galaxy Garrison to open peace talks with the Drule Empire. Dbz77 04:03, February 11, 2011 (UTC)dbz77
Trust me, watching a bunch of VV episodes in a row is a pretty disjointed experience at times. One episode will have Hazar be a good guy who wants peace, and the next will have him a villain again with no explanation for the mood swing. The VV continuity has holes like a screen door.
To be fair, Dairugger's cast and plot is much more complex and political than Golion, but my impression is that WEP focused more on making standalone half-hours than paying attention to a season-long arc. (That's purely my speculation, though.) --GrantB 05:17, February 11, 2011 (UTC)
