A thick curtain of smoke covered the entrance. Periodically, pairs of mechs would march through, guns blazing. A few shotgun blast later and they joined the pile of smoking servos on the floor.
Turtman turned to Mr. Aten, "I think it's time to break out your pyjak moves, Mr. Aten."
Mr. Aten cloaked. More smoke grenades exploded around the entrance. The batarian engineer, Si'nn, curled into a ball in the deepest, smallest corner of the room.
Mr. Aten even yet deep voice came over the radio, "Enemy at platoon strength, plus eight mechs. The leading pair are at ten meters from your location armed with grenade launchers. A well timed attack should disperse their leading elements and give me an opening to strike."
"Got it," said Turman. "Listen up, overload your guns and set for ten meters. I want time on target on my mark," he said to the others.
The other krogan nodded in turn. Turtman got out of cover. A blue sphere appeared on his right hand.
"Whenever you're ready, Mr. Aten," said Turt

ANN: Timeline with Richard Garrett
ANN Central Studios, Vancouver, North American Union, November 12, 2196
Richard Garrett- This is Sunday, November 12, 2196 and welcome to another installment of Timeline. With us today is asari historian, sophontologist, political scientist, and author of the controversial book, The Matriarch's Garden: The Price of Peace, Asty T'Alaton. Welcome to the show, Ms. T'Alaton.
Asty T'Alaton- Glad to be here, Richard.
Richard Garrett- Let's get right to it, shall we? In your book you state that for the last thousand years that asari matriarchs have waged a sort of cold war at the edge of Citadel space using such tactics as political assassinations, sabotage, kidnapping, corporate warfare, and proxy wars. How come we are only hearing about this now?
Asty T'Alaton- Have you ever wondered why, with billions of asari in

In Transit, The Phoenix Massing, SSV Kursk SR-3, War Room, November 10, 2196
Over the last three weeks we investigated a dozen sites connected to Cerberus and came up with nothing. We found no hints of their plans, resources, or current location. Just a series of uneventful drops, except for the thresher maw in Karnak. It took an orbital strike by Kursk to get us out that mess. Every lead came up empty. And to top it off the XO informed me that the ship's stores of vegetables, ice cream and instant coffee were low. A crew could live happily for weeks on end without asparagus. Leave them without vanilla ice cream and coffee and morale tanked in minutes.
Ship's VI chimed through the intercom, "Incoming call for Commander Thompson-Ramos on the Q.E.C."
"On it," I said.
Major Lianna Obutu, Alliance Intelligence, appeared on the pad, "Commander, I hope I didn't catch you at a bad time."
"It all depends on what you got for me major," I said.
"Of course. I just
Military Forces of the Citadel: Alliance NavyMilitary Forces of the Citadel: Alliance Navy by TheWonderingSword
Excerpt from Modern Galactic War by Paul Malthus, 3rd Edition , Made available for Extranet Scholastic Use by The Institute of War and Diplomacy, Vancouver Metroplex, North American Union, Earth, 2190 (1st Edition published by Banabar Books in 2184).
Systems Alliance Navy
The Alliance Navy is the senior branch of the Systems Alliance Military. It is tasked with the following missions:
Protect Alliance space from external attack.
Police trade routes within Alliance space.
Prosecute any conflict within and outside of Alliance space as dictated by the Alliance Parliament.
Assist allied forces in maintaining peace and security within Citadel Space.
In order to fulfill its mission parameters the Navy has adopted a doctrine of deterrence vis-à-vis any present or future threat. This doctrine calls for rapid reaction fleets to garrison key mass relay junctions. From there they can react with overwhelming force against nearby threats or stop an adv
Yet another “controversy” has exploded on the video gaming side of the internets called by a few names but mainly #GamerGate. If you haven’t seen it you have been spared the worst of humanity (on the internet, you don’t say!) but again, I feel that this is another reflection of a larger culture war that is not limited to video games. Just see the whole SFWA kerfuffle earlier this year.
Or the whole issue of spousal abuse and the NFL.
Or the massive invasion of privacy of female celebrities.
And if you look at all those situations, their evolution, the language, the positions, well everything is eerily similar. I may write more about it in the future but for now, here are a few thoughts on the matter:
Speculative fiction writer, gamer and generally opinionated person. Harry Potter fan as well. I use deviantart as a source of inspiration for my writing. I make no claims on any art found here, and I would like to thank all the wonderful artist that help my imagination soar.|
