Okay but "the Vasudan foothold on Vasuda Prime" is prima facie, and without context, dumb.
a) It's "The Vasudan foothold on Vasuda Prime and the subspace node remains solid."
b) Not neccessarily dumb. It's not like an invading, colonizing force never claimed that "the savages" are "tresspassing" on the land that "by divine right"/"manifest destiny" would be colonizers. Granted that's maybe too big an idea for the rest of the writing - but I can work with that.
Actually I made a in-universe consciracy theory out of it - called the "The Empty Planet" - to flesh out the NTF. Basically, the it's a "moonlanding conspiracy"-type (mixed with a "ancient astronauts"-type and a few choice bits from deep down the rhetoric of hate's well) but for the entire Vasudan civilisation, used by Terran Supremancists to "justify" their opinions about "Vasudan Inferioirity".
I was going to post about it but then Christchurch Attack happened and I found it to be in bad taste to talk about
just how vile I can make the NTF
what paralells to present day and historical racists I can draw.
c) As it is, I would suspect, the final line it a copy and paste job, replacing something else that was in the place of "Vasuda Prime".
d) That's a problem for an Editor to catch - not just the writer. If you don't have an editor, and the writer is also doing a different job, you of course wind up with suboptimal results. But that's not an issue with the writing per se but with work organisation at the studio.
