Ultimate coordination, expanded knowledge/memory, literal GOD status, immortality, respect/treatment as royalty, acting as guardians for the populace.

Basically, It’s like the idea of the "dreadnought" naval vessel. The more the merrier, and the more firepower/security one can have for the nation. Granted that this program is voluntary.

I might have missed something story wise. But uh, please inform the ignorant: Why is this a program? Why do these ponies volunteer for it? (Not them specifically but ponies in general). And what exactly are the benefits of this program in the long run?

I’m seriously not trying to shame the artist, the one who thought up the story, or anyone who likes this. (I myself enjoy the "end" products ;P) I’m just curious to the process.

So even though they are not family by blood, they are still family. Very interesting, that’ll kinda explains why the kid refers to Speedy as his dad and Calm as his uncle and vice versa.
