Um...  if this is for fixing things I'd like to point out:

"He could of wound up anywhere in the galaxy and we will never be able to find him"

"could of" is an audio corruption of "could have", and isn't proper when written out.  Technically it's not proper when spoken either, but corruption of the spoken word is more accepted than corruption of the written word.

So technically it should be:

"He could have wound up anywhere in the galaxy and we will never be able to find him"

Now, at this point there's a VERY minor case problem between "he could have" (past tense) and "we will never" (future tense).   It's perfectly fine just the way shown unless you're unGodly picky... 

In that case it probably should be:

"He could have wound up anywhere in the galaxy and we would never be able to find him"

But it's not a big deal...

I won't even go into the lack of ending punctuation running rampant all over that whole paragraph...  :evil:

That's why I like usin' apostrophes to 'fix' those broke' words. It can be written.

Also, I don't quite get the mixing of past and present tense there since technically its two separate sentences. He could have gone anywhere. We can't find him.

:-P

Jesus... it was my first mod for crying out loud.

I am much better at grammar and sentence structuring now. Not that I wasn't back then, I was just having an off day when I wrote that up.
