    Fuck yeah humanity thread. I'll start with one of my absolute favorite FYH quotes.

    "The humans, I think, knew they were doomed. But where another race would surrender to despair, the humans fought back with even greater strength. They made the Minbari fight for every inch of space. In all my life, I have never seen anything like it; they would weep, they would pray, they would say goodbye to their loved ones... and then throw themselves, without fear or hesitation, at the very face of death itself. Never surrendering.

    "No one who saw them fighting against the inevitable could help but be moved to tears by their courage... their stubborn nobility. When they ran out of ships, they used guns. When they ran out guns, they used... knives, and sticks, and bare hands. They were... magnificent.

    "I only hope that when it is my time that I may die with half as much dignity as I saw in their eyes in the end. They did this for two years. They never ran out of courage... but in the end, they ran out of time."

    Shit, thinking about time in those terms is a mind-opener. Imagine what the galactic community would be like once the last human in existence, the last remnant of this mighty race that held all the galaxy in its hand, perishes forever, to be nothing more than a memory. A full cycle of the greatest measure.

    Okay, I'm a pretty terrible writefag, but I'll try something out anyways.
    Humans, my progeny, are one of the most dangerous things in the galaxy. You may not understand this, but it is true.

    All life forms that have joined the galactic community have, at some point in their existance, realized the folly of emotion. An important tool when fighting for survival on a savage and untamed world, they quickly become a hindrance when a species invents weaponry that can devastate a planet. At this point, most species come to the conclusion to voluntarily remove emotions entirely, so that such weapons will never be used by someone unstable. With logic as a guiding principle, war often is reduced to a thing of the past, and the galactic community becomes a thing of peace. That changed with the arrival of the humans.
    >> Anonymous 05/28/10(Fri)01:47 No.10105878
    Species that do not remove emotion quickly bring about their own end. Not the humans. Whether through dumb luck or something more, they endured. Twice their emotions almost made them eradicate all life on their planet with terrible weapons, and twice they managed to avoid that fate. The fact that they managed to survive long enough to create FTL drives surprised the galaxy. Surprised and unnerved. These fools had evaded destruction twice - but only barely. Nothing was to say that the next time, they would come through yet again. With yet more dangerous technology now within their grasp, they could become a threat not only to themselves, but to anything else in a system they came near.

    The Nar'an'toth decided that they would wipe out humanity for the safety of the galaxy. This decision was approved of by the council of sentient races. Their ships soon rained destruction on human worlds, efficiently wiping out all signs of life from the planets. They were systematic, thorough, and methodical. And this was their downfall.

    Joy, fear, love, anger, hate, happiness. Emotions are illogical things. We who have discarded them make all decisions on logic, which has saved us from so many disasters. However, the presence of emotions does not exclude the presence of logic. We long ago forgot the how and why of things enacted by the emotional, but the humans could understand the workings of the logical. Thus was the Nar'an'toth's fall; the humans could figure out what a Nar'an'toth wold do in battle, but they themselves were completely unpredictable.

    Though the beginning of the war made it seem as if it would be ended quickly, it quickly became prolonged. The humans' weapons were aimed with rage and fear, attacking in places that were unexpected. Their maneuvers were erratic, sometimes clever feints, sometimes folly. While the Nar'an'toth could make no sense of it, the humans easily predicted and parried many of the Nar'an'toth's attacks.

    Eventually, the war was over. The humans stood victorious, and glassed the homeworld of the Nar'an'toth. For reasons unfathomable, they continued to wreak destruction upon the planet until all that remained was a sphere of magma in the depths of space. They then proceeded to destry all traces of the Nar'an'toth they could find in the galaxy. We did not aid the Nar'an'toth, not wishing to draw the now powerful military might of the humans upon us.

    Emotions are strange, emotions are dangerous, emotions are unpredictable. We have never again attempted to wage war with the humans. Just as our logic tells us.

    ...and that's it. Sorry I subjected you to that crappy writing.

A noble instinct, ever keeping oblivion at bay. It was this that allowed us to set aside our differences; advanced our bodies beyond what nature could yield, achieve godhood.

    Still for all the animu flaws of Heroic Age, I did kind of like how humans were the only race of the main space faring species to actually have a emotional attachment to their homes.

    The Bronze Tribe were made up of zerg-like aliens who only used their origin world to spawn new batches of bugs, they didn't consider that humans would find value in attacking their origin world when better military targets existed.

    The Silver Tribe, a race of purely telepathic and telekinetic beings had long ago abandoned their home world as it no longer held resources leaving only a single member of their race who stayed there to hold on to the rest of their species mental anxieties. Her entire purpose seemed to be to help them deal with their fears and worries, otherwise the entire race governed themselves with a telepathic collective. Again, they didn't understand why Humanity went for their origin world when it held zero importance to them.

    "Repulsor systems at twelve percent! We are not going to be able to hold Kol-Sarag!" barked Kark.

    "Keep firing, keep firing!" roared the snakelike Vore commander, his facial scales bristling with anger. "We are NOT going to fall to those kals'hak or Beloved Mother be praised I will kill you all myself, is that clear?!"

    "Yes Commander!" was Kark's rapid reply. His three graspers navigated the organic console in front of him with a grace that couldn't be replicated by the most delicate Avnari ballet dancer. poured more energy into the positronic beam cannons aboard the Sterakin-class battlecruiser Kol-Sarag. The ship itself was similar to the Vore who crewed it, a long, thin frame with three long arms and a slender, elegant head, with armor plates in the shape of the scales all Vore had in lieu of skin. Most interestingly, it appeared organic, and it was. The ships were grown in large vats around the Vore home planet of E'ma Ma'ca. Despite its appearance of fragility, the ship was capable of dealing out a lot of punishment, and absorbing it in kind.

    The kals'hak Sundroids were unloading enormous amounts of plasma energy into the Vore fleet and things were looking dire. The scales along Kark's neck folded back in panic as an explosion rocked the ship and strobing blue lights bathed the bridge in an unearthly glow. An internal communication device began screaming. "Sundroids have infiltrated! Sundroids have infiltrated!" The wet slithering sound of Vore footsoldiers moving rapidly could be heard in the nearby corridors, and the staccato bursts of repeating hand-held positronic rifles filled Kark with a glow of hope, that he might yet survive.

    That glow was rapidly snuffed out by the odd tingling feeling that tore through every member of the ship's bridge. Sundroids were firing their weapons. They emitted no sound that any normal Vore could hear, but the unique dissipation of the weapons was, to say the very least, unconfortable.
    >> Balancesheet !!8YCJ2hR2egG 05/28/10(Fri)05:22 No.10109251

    But in the end, Sundroid Pulse Cannons were nothing compared to the fury that was about to be unleashed on the ship. Blue arcs of what some other species' dubbed 'electricity' cracked through the corridors and made the previously uncomfortable experience of Sundroid pulse weapons seem like a warm skyrest in comparison. The blue warning lights went dark. Every system in the ship rapidly shut down. "What is happening?!" demanded the Commander.

    "I do not know, I do not know!" cried Kark. "Everything is dead. Kol-Sarag is dead! We have to leave!"

    The Commander had had enough. He pulled out his positronic blaster and shot Kark right in the center eye. "We are NOT leaving." He turned to the rest of the crew. "Get systems up and running or you will share his fate!"

    The crew of the Kol-Sarag darted into action. "Kol-Sarag is still alive, Commander," said one analyst, "but she is wounded. She is processing nitrogen for us once more so we can breathe, and we have internal communication, but anything else will be difficult."

    "Sir!" came a cry from deep within the ship, but the noise came from right next to the commander. "The sundroids are dormant! Whatever happened, they have deactivated!"

    Before the Commander could respond, one crewmember piped up, panicked. "By the Beloved Mother, what is that?"

    For a fighter, it was huge. It would have been more apt to describe it as a bomber. It looked to be a cobble of mechanical parts loosely welded together to form what looked like a stunted shark in front of them. Already slightly taller than it was long, and very thin, the vessel had two wings swooped forward like a bird of prey on each side, and huge fins on the top and below the ship made it a very tall ship with a very narrow profile. External hardpoints containing all sorts of technological munitions opened up on the Sundroid vessel in front of them, the projectiles completely bypassing the energy repulsors and ripping giant holes in the ship, arachnid Sundroids began pouring from the wound.

    "External communications restored. We are receiving a message."

    The Vore had a very effective translator package, but the suicidal pilot of that vessel was speaking in tongues. "Take that, you mother-{engaging in sexual intercourse} piece of {animal droppings}-for-brains! Shove it up your {rear bodily orifice used for excretment}. Kol-Sarag, you're in the clear! Get your ship up and running and help us take down these {one who engages in masturbation}s!"

    "They cripped Kol-Sarag!" came the mournful howl of another member of the bridge crew. "Why?"

    The Commander had served alongside humans before. He knew why. And, grudgingly, he was grateful they had showed up as a much, much larger vessel of similar design as the human bomber came into view. "If they had not, we would all be dead. You, me, Kark, Kol-Sarag, all of us."

    Humanity. They were kals'hak, infidels, and a blight upon the precious Beloved Mother, but they were effective.

    How to summarize a war? Any war? The feints, the thrusts, the endless positional maneuvers of attack and counter attack, furious defense and blistering advance. The General in me almost finds it abhorrent to reduce all these tactics, the strategy into almost nothing. But the Historian in me knows otherwise. And my superiors force me to it.

    So, how to summarize a war? I do not know, but I will try.

    We struck first. That much is clear. It was some petty dispute, some minor inconvenience. They were a fresh face to the galactic community, only having just established their membership to the rest of the galaxy. We were Ancient, part of the hallowed 3rd Founding. We were part of the Triumvirate, friends and allies with the Auspicious Governance of Tirul and the Church of the Holy Magnitude. Together with us, the United, we were the three major powers in the universe.

    There were no fleets our equal, no enemy that we could not best, no mind that was our match. We three blazed a path through the endless Hives of the Pestilence, we fought back the Invasion of the Inner Rim Collective, we fought for your rights in battle time and time again.

    Some would rather forget the reason for the war began, rather feign ignorance than admit stupidity. I will tell you. It was over nothing. We asked them for supplies, they gave all that was reasonable. We asked for more, they refused. Angry and prideful, we took what we could snatch. Resentful and spiteful, when we were convinced they were holding back we punished them.

    That was a mistake.
    >> Anonymous 05/28/10(Fri)08:18 No.10111079

    It was a mistake to destroy their civilian fleet, resting in orbit. It was a mistake to incinerate their surface, driving the populace into the nooks and cranies of the world that had given them birth.

    It was a mistake to gloat. To call all their leaders together and force them to burn the flag, the symbol of their united endeavor as a species towards the stars, and then kneel as they signed a peace treaty to a war they hadn't started.

    That day, we stole their dignity. Victors then, there was no way we could foresee what was to come.

    It began quietly. Their leaders played their role, stowing away their broken pride and played the fool. They amused us with their bickering and their willingness to play the servant, apologizing for our mistake and pretending to pander to our every whim.

    It was not long until the cracks in their facade began to appear.

    A week after the Incineration of Sol-3, an outer boundary mining planet under human control stops producing steel.

    2 weeks after the glassing of Earth's surface, an orbital ship yard in the outer boundaries of the Human Solar System refuses entry for a Kil'Shaik Military Transport, citing Full Capacity.

    3 Weeks after what will soon after be called Destruction Day, Picket Vessels of the Watchful Order report an increase on interstellar traffic inside the human solar system, citing such large numbers we dismiss it out of disbelief.

    We had a month. A month to pick up on the build up, the mobilization of trillions of willing soldiers, the construction of a fleet so large that you could not spot the stars through the ships.

    One month before the entirety of the human race declared honestly and openly their intent for war.

    It was to be a war like no other.

    We dragged the lesser races in, kicking and screaming, to their own doom. They threw themselves into the cauldron of war that had become the Human Front, more terrified of the triumvirate at the back than the human guns at the front.

    The first triumvirate protectorate fell within a week, within 31 days a full 10 species had been forced to make peace at gun point by their human conquerors. Infuriated by what they saw as their weaker subordinates, the Church of the Holy Magnitude called a Crusade, to crush the inferior human fleets and to show the lesser races just how it was done.

    It was 6 months into the Crusade that it was evident that the Holy Magnitude was tackling with a beast far beyond its capabilities. Still they struggled on, not willing to risk their position in the Triumvirate. It was 9 months before the Origin Cathedral on their most sacred planet was captured and it took a year for them to plea for aid.

    Tirul had been occupied, problems within its own borders threatened the security of the Triumvirate and it claimed it could do nothing until it had reestablished control.

    It would only be later that these very same dissidents would be revealed to be firing Terran Munitions, armed with Earth Guns and flying in Ships produced by Terra Nova Ship Yards.

    Baked in the juices of dissent that the Government of Tirul had planted so long ago, the very populace they had sought so hard to control finally spiraled beyond their means.

    The systems under their control were all at once revealed to be in the grip of a massive, anarchic civil war as the differences between the forces under their command finally came undone.

    The Triumvirate was no more, as the representative for Tirul was forced to come home to answer for crimes against the state, the Bishop for the Holy Church had thrown himself against the crucible of war and had been found wanting, his warship the Inviolable crashing against the steel wall of human lances and cannon batteries.

    Only we were left to answer for crimes that were committed not so long ago.

    Their ships, produced by the millions, were like cannon fodder for our deadly Line Cruisers, their empty husks left burning and lifeless in the void of space.

    Their ground forces were annihilated, defense after desperate defense by the unstoppable advance of United Infantry.

    First an hour of a success, then a day. It was then that the secret to the human stratagem was revealed. Even after a hundred victories, fresh human fleets roared to action from the Terran Reserve undaunted if not inspired by the sacrifice of their comrades. Millions of human conscripts died in the muck and mire of United Territory, only to be replaced by another willing soldier.

    Even as we struggled against exhaustion, fresh humans fought onwards. Even as our guns clicked empty and our cannons warped under the heat of constant firing, fresh human cruisers moved to the attack.

    The advance stalled. The attack became a defense. And soon, all too soon, the bright successes of the first day were swallowed the the night.

    We are alone. Adrift. Fading away.

    Traversing the endless void towards a destination hopelessly out of our reach.

    The sepia history: The paradise we lost. The Armageddon. Then, the Arc. The Convoy. The long Exodus. The promised land. The hunters.

    The Hunters.

    The monochrome present: Hunted down. Pursued. Few. Prey. Herd. Fading, ever fading away. Soldiers dying, civilians taking their place. Conscripts getting younger, ever younger. Running out of food. Running out of spare parts. Systems shutting down. Attrition. Riots. Despair. Sealed off sections left to fend for themselves. We still hear them sometimes, hitting on the bulkheads, pleading in Morse code. Until one day they no longer are.

    Yet the Arc moves still.

    The black future: Sooner or later the uppercut awaits. The final, eternal darkness at the end of all things. It is somewhere ahead. We know. We will not reach the Eagle Nebula. They will not let us.

    The monochrome present again: Foolishly holding on to the spark of life because what else can you do? Carefully shielding a flickering flame from gusts of wind, knowing the hurricane is drawing near. Because that's what I was born to do. And because noone else will.

    And as the cruel, unreachable stars mock us with their permanence... as the whole canopy of the galactic sky looks down upon us and sings to us the last lullaby, the final lament, the eulogy for a mere footnote in the galactic history...

    We move still.

    That klaxon again. My squadron being called up. Another day, another sortie. Until the day that I die.

    Because what else can you do?

    And because we owe it to the long lost blue planet that gave us birth, that we left behind, that died and is no more and will never be again.

    Casualty numbers that belied belief. Resources that would have fed our entire arm of the galaxy twice over were thrown on the meat grinder.

    The tale of the first Galactic War is one of suffering on a scale that is personally impossible to comprehend. A human general said it best, that all the sand on all the beaches in all the universe would still not account for all the sentient lives that have been lost.

    Desperate to find the source of unending human production, high command sent agents deep into human space. What they uncovered was remarkable.

    Even as they had introduced themselves, they already had a reputation as miners. Natural resources, these the humans had in abundance. All they needed was the technology to reach these resources and these we gladly supplied. Our greed to exploit these new traders and miners was only matched by their ambition.

    Oh and what that ambition has produced.

    Entire planets had been hollowed out, little more than floating factories and hab blocks. Rock and dirt had made way for steel walls and metal girders. Underground factory and living complexes that wove its way underneath the surface, exploiting the core of stars to fuel the industry of man.

    Hollowed Out Moon Factories, Floating Asteroid Bases and Planets with Tapped In Cores, once used to fuel the climb of the flourishing Terran Dollar in the interstellar economy was now the life blood of their all encompassing war effort. It seems, even the flesh of stars are not safe in the spirit of human endeavor.

    We had torched the surface of their home world but we would have been better served cracking every planet under their control instead.

    Due to our incompetence, a full 1/5th of the galaxy that was once under Triumvirate control now lies under human hands in the space of a war that has only taken 2 years. The rest of the galaxy burns in their wake, and we will be the last ones of the old order to watch the fires rage.

    It is to my understanding that Picket Line A-2 has been breached. I have been told to tell you to lift all arms in defense of the home system.

    Aww, hell. I'll give it a try.

    They said our war with the Humans would be an easy one. For a time, they were right.
    Their initial push was world-shattering. Millions of beings, armed with energy weapons ocmparable to ours, driving in a straight push into the heart of

    out empire. They called it a Lightning War.

    But we fought back. The great cloning vats on Home produced hundreds of millions of soldiers, and our biotechnology soared to new heights of power. Though

    the Human advance pushed on, we were slowly wearing them away. The casualties came to number in the trillions on both sides, but still they pushed

    forwards. Until they reached Home. The fleets of the System Defence Force, in a stunning display of tactics, beheaded the Human fleet, sending them back

    from whence they came. A small remnant of the Human force was gorunded on a distant asteroid in the Belt, unable to fight back.

    Our victory firm, we were determined to humiliate Humanity for what they had done. We did not kill the Humans on the asteroid; we merely blockaded them,

    showing the whole galaxy the futility of standing against us. They were contained, emprisoned on the surface of the asteroid, guarded by some of the most

    devastating firepower we could possibly imagine.

    For twenty long cycles, nothing happened. Until the day our probes detected a massive explosion on the asteroid's surface. It destroyed the enicrcling

    defensive forces, and sent a chunk of rock more than eighty folds in diameter hurtling towards home. We desperately to halt it, but we could not stop more

    than three billion foldweights of mass. In the last moments before the rock hit Home, every ship in the system recieved an automated transmission, somehow

    shielded against the infernal radiation that veiled the rock. It was two words, uncoded, in Human.

The four thousand year old treaty prohibiting them from developing hyperdrive technology was being violated now, and the bloodthirsty pepetrators of the last great galactic conflict, the slayers of billion were gaining access to the galaxy once again. We had to stop it.

    We seend a part of our fleet to their planet, to destroy all orbital facilities and bun the planet so nothing could survive.

    'Our allies, the Turanic Raiders were sent to deal with the crude mothership the scourge created. Anything they managed to salvage was their for the taking, no questions asked from the Imperial authorities. First, they set a trap with one of the more primitive vessels destroyed earlier. When the enemy arrived, they lanched a full scale attack with one of their famous carrier raiding parties. But something went wrong.

    The carrier, alone and batterd, returned to nearest Turanic outpost. Hangar bays were empty. Unmoved by this fiasco of our allies, we planned our next step on how to deal with the survivors. The plan was simple - as soon as the strike group is ready for redeployment, we will jump to the enemy last known position and deal with them.

    The meeting of the strike group's captains regarding next course of action was still in progress when we lost contact with the force we left in Kharak's orbit to deal with anything that survived the mayhem.

    From that small pack of frigates, there was no one left. Everything's gone.'

    'The captains were still arguing over what happened, when we discovered incoming jump signatures nearby, just a couple of ships. Some of their signatures matched those of our ships, while others matched those of new Hiigaran design.

    They stole them. They stole our ships sent to Kharak. Slaughtered the crew, reprogrammed ships computers and were now using them against us. They even managed to redesign and build one of their own.

    The battle only lasted few hours. First they sent salvage corvettes protected by several wings of fighters, to salvage our resource operations. We couln't scramble our fighters fast enough, we didn't expect any trouble here.

    We lost almost all of our resource operations to the enemy. Hiigaran crafts disengaging only when nothing was to be gained from the fight.

    Although repairs were not finished, with resupply operations crippled the commander of our strike group ordered to form ships in standard Taiidani battle formations. Assault Frigates on the first wave, remaining destroyers behind them and a carrier providing fighter support last. A force adequate to deal with their rag-tag fleet.

    We underestimated them. They had nothing to loose. With their civilisation destroyed, with their planet a burning wasteland, the had only one goal now. Hiigara. And we were in their way.

    'First, they sent fighters. They danced aroud our capital ships, while we tried to fend them off, then when we were busy they sent their own frigates. But not to destroy our own, oh no, that would be too kind of them. Their capital ships didn't even fire a shot at our own, they just passed them, deployed around our destroyers and started firing on them. Our assault frigates turned around to provide some support to our heavier ships, while our fighters were in the middle of a pretty even fight. That's when their second wave arrived.

    Two dozen of interceptor class vessels quickly disposed of most of our strike craft, and the remnants had to retreat to the elusive-safety of the carrier. The enemy frigates and our destroyers were pretty badly damaged though, but at this rate it would be our forces that'd emerge victorious from this engagement.

    It was then, when we were too busy with their frigates and fightercraft we noticed something wrong. Our frigates stopped firing, and were drifting slowly in the direction of the enemy mothership. While we were busy with battle, they moved several of their salvage corvettes and immobilized most of our frigates, the few that managed to avoid capture being destroyed.

    Now, no backup, our destroyers tried their best to hold the line, managed even to destroy two their frgates, but not enough to make much of a difference. Backed with fighter support they made short work of our ships, nothing standing betwen the bulk of their forces and the lonely carrier trying it's best to charge his hyperdrive while on maximum output from it's sublight engines.

    We should have been concerned. We felt the humans were a species of disunity capable only of casting rocks at themselves and squabbling over their hierarchies of divinity. Their history was pockmarked with crusade after jihad after crusade after exodus after insurrection of zealots of a thousand names doing just that: casting stones at those that disagreed. Where other species rose as one, humans were fragmented into thousands of arbitrary segregations.

    We should have been concerned.

    Humanity cast itself from its biosphere into what they felt was a void. Their technology was primitive, bound to a rough three dimensions; the fourth was the limiter of their perception. We existed in the fourth and fifth, and made no passes at the sixth as that was our limit. We knew our limit and we respected it as such. The humans did not seem to believe in limits. They treated them as obstacles, merely transient, arbitrary concepts; they drew hard lines between the existent and subsistent, and paid no respect to the subsistent outside their ambitions.

    Their senses and view of energies was pathetically limited. They had no conception of gravity beyond what its effect was on their limited dimensions, pulling objects of three dimensions toward other objects of three dimensions relative to their massiness (which was a product, again, of matter 'existing' in only three dimensions).

    When they freed themselves from what they saw as gravity's hold on 'their' biosphere and began planting themselves elsewhere in what they saw as 'their' solar system, we felt we had to stop them. They did not see the slow death of their relevant third dimension of planet as a limit. Like the other species, we felt, they should accept this limit and die.

    We destroyed their colonies and some thousands of colony ships (taking with them much of their species), and sent them a simple message in a language they could decode:

    "We exist in the gravitic, which you do not understand. We are part of a higher set of dimensions, which you do not understand. We are alone in this Paradigm. Only we understand.

    Planetary species are meant for their own planets. This is where you evolved and where you will cease to evolve in your death. You do not understand this. You are an anomolous species that does not submit to the bounds of your dimensions.

    Cease your attempts at colonization. Adapt, biologically, to your biosphere, or die with the other species of your dimensions.

    You are a species of disunity that can only throw rocks. Accept this. You cannot throw a rock big enough to disrupt our enforcement of the dogma."

    We attempted to communicate in the tone of the rulers of their divine hierarchies. We felt this would appropriately command them.

    What we failed to understand is that we failed to understand three dimensions as much as they failed to understand five.

    We waited. We expected no response, or if anything, perhaps a deployment of hastily-cobbled warships. Such was the fantasy of their culture. They idolized their species.

    Instead, they began launching more colony ships, modified but unarmed, into their planet's orbit. We permitted this. We should have been concerned. They landed on their own moon--still, a part of their planet. We permitted this. We should have been concerned. They colonized it, adapted their culture to it, and moved the entirety of their species onto it. We permitted all of this as proper actions of a species entering its twilight when we should have been concerned.

    We determined after the fact that the armories of the nations of humanity had been combined into a single charge and detonated. Their planet's moon, with them upon it, rode the blast into a comfortable orbit near a resource-rich asteroid. Their devastated biosphere was propelled toward our point of intersection.

    We exist in the gravitic. The mass of the planet will disrupt our intersection with the lower dimensions and leave us blinded and powerless to stop humanity or any other lower species from treating their limits as obstacles. They do not understand the dogma of the Paradigm and that this is how it simply must be.

    We should have been concerned. We were naive, and as consequence, we have lost three dimensions.

    We received a single electromagnetic signal from their lunar arc shortly after the detonation of their charge:

    The Machines were the monsters from beyond the Rim. Cold, remorseless, and logical. Who knew what horror had created them, or why. We all knew to stay away from them, to keep quiet, and vigilant. When the Machines approached, we would run. Pull out of a system, and take everything we had built, all our technology, and leave the resources behind. An offer to them, to keep them occupied, and uninterested in us. For so many galactic rotations, we had kept to this. And when we found intelligent life forming, we'd shush them, tuck them under our wing, and keep them safe.

    No one was watching Earth. The humans sprang up so fast, by the time we realized they were there, they were already bleeding information, a beacon to the machines. We panicked, and raced to them, hoping to save them. To quiet them down, and move them away before the machines reached their world. They greeted us with happy surprise, relieved to find they weren't alone, that the silence we had used to hide had not been the silence of death.
    >> Aun'Ui Ukos 05/28/10(Fri)21:14 No.10122667

    We should have known then, what humanity would do. For their happiness was not only in finding out they were not alone, but in finding companions, rather than foes. Where all others had been oblivious to the dangers of the Machines, and viewing our nurturing friendship as only natural, the humans eyed us with suspicion. They were expecting monsters. They were naive in their technological expansion, but some how, they expected monsters. We didn't expect monsters, until we met the Machines. We didn't expect monsters when we met Humanity.

    We tried to quiet them down. They were already moving to closed circuits, and focused relays, they were capable being quiet. But instead, they increased their transmissions. Not haphazardly, but with purpose. Now, they wanted to be found. Loud, energetic, and determined to be found. We warned them of the Machines, of the danger, and the need to be quiet, to flee. They became grim, they quieted down.

    And then, they became louder. They refused to leave. This little race, that had barely breached their cradle world's atmosphere demanded we fight off the machines. So naive, to think the machines could be fought. So arrogant to demand we fight, for them. When we said we could not, that it could not be done, they grew angry. And they got louder.

    The Machines didn't find Humanity, Humanity found the Machines. And taunted them. Such a childish thing to do, and pointless against the cold logic of a Machine. We begged them to flee, we warned them of the horrible power the Machines had, of what they did to whole systems. We told them of the cold efficiency of the Machines. Had we been paying attention, we would have known the folly of trying to talk them out of their reckless ways. We would have known Humanity had been thinking of these things ever since they found the power of steam. They had been dreaming of this conflict.

    They had been dreaming of their death at the feet of the Machines since before we found them. And they were eager to avenge their dream selves. Perhaps it was some quirk of time, some twist somewhere in the fabric of things, but they felt so strongly, the wrongs that the machines could visit upon them, the machines never had to act. Their very existence hurt Humanity in ways we didn't think possible. And humans took it as a sign. A sign of their own greatness.

    As we fled their system, with what few we had persuaded to come with us, we watched as their world blazed, a beacon in the void. Messages in countless languages, in symbolic images and cunning cyphers, to a million different worlds. The sum of their knowledge, the heart of their peaceful visions. We thought it was the death knell of a doomed civilization. We settled the survivors on other worlds, and kept them quiet. And waited for their cradle world to fall silent. And waited.

    It only grew louder.

    And then another world blazed to life, the same vigorous messages, the same cyphers. From beyond the edge of darkness, where only the Machines thrived. And then another, with new messages, new knowledge.

    And we listened to Humanity. We could not believe what we heard. They claimed to have broken the back of the Machines. It was not possible. And so, though we were not certain of the wisdom of it, we went to see.

    We found Machine worlds. Precision, and cold logic. And we found humanity, enjoying their liberty. While machines kept their systems running, humanity dabbled in art, idled their way tinkering with stars. Human scientists worked with Machine intelligences, thinking up new ways to advance. The machines were working for humanity, content to serve.

    We were blinded by the glory of human conquest. Had we not been so awed of humans, so fearful of the Machines, we would have seen the truth of things. The humans had gutted the Machines, stripped them of their self. Those they left independent, to aid the human scientists, were shackled at their mechanical souls, bound to their human masters, free will denied. To claim it, suicide. And the logic of the Machines confirmed it.

    They had been beaten, and tamed, by that which made them horrors to the rest of us. And now, that horror is just another tool for Humanity. And so they continue, consuming civilization, after civilization into their light. And so we keep quiet, and flee before the humans find us again.

    Laƫth was a desert world, and we were a desert people. In our natural
    environment, with our hunting instincts, we would lure the humans
    close to us and ambush their teams. A collection of farmers would have
    no chance against our trained soldiers, and would flee the planet
    entirely once we demonstrated our skill.

    We set the stage at night, and lured them out of their homes. We were
    surprised when not alarmed when they navigated around our ambush as if
    they knew we were there. We moved down the road for our second
    attempt. Again they managed to discover our locations, but we knew it
    was only a matter of time, which was all on our side.

    This went on until dawn, at which time we moved some distance ahead to
    rest and to set up a camp once the humans had stopped or returned
    home. But they kept coming! We exchanged gestures of amusement that
    they could be inexperienced enough to attempt a pursuit in the heat of
    day. With the lead we already had and our superior speed, they would
    be exhausted far before we were, and we could kill them them.

    We took a new position and rested while they toiled in the sun. This
    must have happened twenty times that day. As time wore on, I began to
    doubt that we were facing real people at all. Perhaps they had died
    from the heat long ago, and it was just their ghosts chasing us across
    the rocks. When it became apparent that they weren't stopping, or even
    visibly weary we adjusted our plan to lose them in the terrain. We
    made our way through canyons and made no noise at all, but somehow
    they appeared over every ridge.

    When the sun was high overhead, we were at the point of
    collapse. Several of our party had become exhausted and lost along the
    way, presumably killed and eaten by our pursuers. The last thing I
    remember that day was staring up at a human teetering from its
    ludicrous height, baring its teeth and barking at its companions. I
    knew I was going to die.

    Imagine my surprise when I woke up staring at my lost companions, with
    no damage to myself but that caused by the heat. What kind of creature
    can hunt its enemy across a world, then cage it up with no apparent
    interest at all? How can you hunt without a killing instinct?

    Bad humans kicked the shiny metal ass of a force that everyone was too pussy to take on and made them their servant lapdogs. Then they proceeded to make beautiful art and explore.

    The Salvation War has only few good moments, but ll in all it sucks so much it's not even funny.

    X-COM: Goa'uld Defence is superior in all ways.
