Part 7 – Attention All Planets of the Solar Federation

‘We have taken control’ is the most popular line in the series. However, there are some questions that remain unanswered. Who are the new rulers of the Solar Federation? How did they come to power? And how did they gain absolute control? We will discuss this in detail in part seven. Read on to learn more about the Grand Finale. And, of course, be prepared for the inevitable sequels.

‘We have assumed control’

“2112” is an apocalyptic song from the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx. Syrinx is a mythical water nymph from Greek mythology, which is also the name of a bird’s vocal organs. The song ends with the message, “Attention all planets of the Solar Federation. We have assumed control.” In the song, seven words are repeated three times: “We have taken control of all planets of the Solar Federation.” This is a common theme throughout the series.

‘We have taken over’

The band Rush has predicted a global war in their album 2112, released more than 40 years ago. The album hints that the war is set to end in 2062. But instead of a peaceful conclusion, the Solar Federation unites the warring planets and installs the music-hating Priests of the Temples of Syrinx as overlords. But the band’s most hopeful free thinker finds a guitar and sacrifices himself to spread melody throughout the galaxy.

The band has been honed its set list and rehearsed their material for a year. Their catalog of Rush songs is considered the most difficult to cover, and they spent this year perfecting their performance. Solar Federation earned a reputation as one of the finest Rush tribute bands on the East Coast. Their accurate interpretation of the material, meticulous attention to detail, and Schreiber’s passionate delivery of the lyrics have earned them numerous praises.
