By the by, last month Firaxis posted an in-universe letter from one of the new leaders from Rising Tide.  It is... very interesting, for sure.

By the way, calling it: Canon-ARC is Supremacy/Harmony while attempting the Contact Victory.

Destiny - “Undaunted. Unrelenting. Unchained.”
Harmony - “We Evolve or We Perish.”
Nobility - “I Wield this Sword, It Does Not Wield Me.”
Purity - “Our Heritage is Our Destiny.”
Supremacy - “Through Technology All Will Be Saved.”

Actually, y'know one thing that I was reminded of: GDI vs. Nod.  For real, GDI is very Purity, while Nod is very Supremacy/Harmony, at least style wise.

- GDI is very human-centric, with a military styled after more classic conventional armies, with extensive use of power armor for its more advanced infantry.  They are also highly opposed to the alien substance that engulfs the planet, and are actively fighting for its removal.

- Nod, meanwhile, is intent on gaining power through any means possible, whether its via advanced cybernetics or its advanced bio-modification via extensive use of same alien substance.  The style of Supremacy/Harmony's units also have a certain Nod-ish vibe to them when you think about it.

Purity-Harmony looks kinda weird, to me at least.
