Fearful that the infrastructure of their planets may be destroyed the two sides agree to conduct the war entirely by computer, with designated casualties reporting to suicide stations after each attack in order to immolate themselves. Having removed any pressing need for a ceasefire, the war continues unabated for the next five hundred years.1
