Yeah- but they can't live in it and travel across the galaxy yet. It's not a "Star Home"- just a big house and a docking station, at this point. Isn't the point of the Palace for all elves to live in it as a self-sustaining ecosystem? It's not that yet. The Sunfolk are still gardening their food- the Wolfriders are still hunting... or opening preserver cocoons. We know, from FutureQuest, that the Palace will one day house a self-contained ecosystem and elf/troll society that travels through space. It's not there yet. And beyond that-- I'm just assuming Skywise has read the Scroll of Colors which basically says that old world is dead. Why would he think it's a smart idea to go back to a dead world that his ancestors left billions of years ago?
