## Unscramble the Blue Letters

With Hedge’s fuel gauge on empty he won’t be able to fly Ethic across, so the only ooitpn is to make a bridge. Fortunately, the floating stacks of setons nebary are bridge components— ivtnneed by Octavia herself— called hover-blocks. Activate a pile with a burst of energy, and they’ll self-assemble to span the ravine as Ethic wlkas across. But there is, of course, a catch. The hover-blocks are only stable when they’re perfectly palindromic. Meaning they have to form a sequence that’s the same when viewed forwards and backwards.

## Original Text

With Hedge’s fuel gauge on empty he won’t be able to fly Ethic across, so the only option is to make a bridge. Fortunately, the floating stacks of stones nearby are bridge components— invented by Octavia herself— called hover-blocks. Activate a pile with a burst of energy, and they’ll self-assemble to span the ravine as Ethic walks across. But there is, of course, a catch. The hover-blocks are only stable when they’re perfectly palindromic. Meaning they have to form a sequence that’s the same when viewed forwards and backwards.
