" Orz had a sneaky IDF trick to accomplish what they did to Orz"? You might want to correct that sentence.
New theory. They pulled a sneaky IDF trick… on themselves! Any takers? No? Ok, I fix it.
If you ask me, what you found on the Androsynth *adopted playground* suggests that the space-front was bypassed altogether in favor of something like a direct ground war, where the Guardian's advantages would be rendered irrelevant.

Interesting, so I’m assuming there’s no concrete evidence to support either of these theories definitively? That’s fascinating. Perhaps when the Orz learned about the Androsynth and how to *slide* into our dimension, they did so using a military strategy in mind.
It reminds me of a Star Trek: TNG episode called “Contagion”, where the crew of the Enterprise discovers advanced technology left behind by a once powerful but now dead empire, which is capable of transporting people instantaneously over great distances, light years of travel accomplished by merely walking through a door!
What if the Orz technology allows them to do something similar when they travel between the two dimensions? They could appear on the surface and inside the buildings, their ships could appear out of nowhere, with Space Marines having already arrived a few moments earlier, inside each ship of the Guardian fleet!
