Jura Ending: You can choose to end the book by assigning Astral Charges to the Jura, so they win the war. The astral charges will allow one side to make it out of the war and into the Sanctum. The Jura will use the charges to first destroy the Sanctum and then destroy the Vanguard warships. If you chose this ending, you have the option to promise your LI to stay with you for good. Your character joins the Jura (or re-affirms their alliance - you can make a final decision on your alliance), calls the Jura ship and assigns the charges as they shoot out in two different directions. The Jura ship then flies towards the Sanctum and splits its crew and the charges with another Jura ship. The book ends with the ship blending into a bright light show, before being consumed by white.
Vanguard Ending: You can choose to end the book by assigning Astral Charges to the Vanguard, so they win the war. The astral charges will allow one side to make it out of the war and into the Sanctum. The Vanguard will use the charges to first destroy the Sanctum and then destroy the Jura warships. If you chose this ending, you have the option to promise your LI to stay with you for good. Your character joins the Vanguard (or re-affirms their alliance - you can make a final decision on your alliance), calls the Vanguard ship and assigns the charges as they shoot out in two different directions. The Vanguard ship then flies towards the Sanctum and splits its crew and the charges with another Vanguard ship. The book ends with the ship blending into a bright light show, before being consumed by white.
Peace Ending: You have the option to promise your LI to stay with you for good. When asked who you want to hand the charges to, you can choose both the Vanguard and the Jura, to ensure peace. Nova notes that the only way both sides can be trusted is if they are both given charges. Your Character worries that if one side was given the charges, the other might become an enemy and turn to vengeance. You activate the charges, and note that everything seems to be going peaceful. The senator prepares documents for all to sign while noting that the galaxy finally has peace. The book ends as you watch the Sanctum, the Void ship, become consumed by a colorful light show.
Sacrifice Ending: Instead of sending the astral charges to one side, you take them in the Atlas and sacrifice yourself by flying them into the Sanctum. You do this because you believe that both sides would destroy each other with the charges. If you have an LI, you get to tell him/her one final goodbye. To save his/her life, you will knock him/her out right after your final declaration of love and send him/her off into an escape pod. You call the senator and ask for her to make sure the Jura and the Vanguard to lay down their arms and live a peaceful life. Lyra swears she will have peace and that your sacrifice will bring the galaxy together. You say one final goodbye to your siblings while telling them to be there for each other, and whisper goodbye as you drive the ship into the Sanctum, as it explodes in a colorful light show, ending the book.
