Reviews for To Inherit the Future
Axccel chapter 7 . 5/5
If the clones were dying due to failure of the procedure but the attempt was genuine and not hostile action against them, simply repeat the attempt with more resources and more androids involved. If it was from bad actors, make the next attempt a big, public deal in a big, public place with constant, public analysis of the data and procedure so everyone can be watching at all times. Thereby making it impossible for sabotage to get through. If they can control you, get the aliens to help with it. Or even pretend to give up from this lab incident, but open up a very small, highly trusted group to continue the project slowly over a long period of time. It's fine for it to take centuries to reach fruition.

I assume that before canceling the story, you intended either for Commander Shepard to be an android, not exist, or to be an early human creation success. Perhaps with the new humans being thrust into another war for survival against alien machines shortly after their rebirth being both a dark turn and perhaps a huge morale blow to the androids as well as driving them into a great fury. Or perhaps have them fighting through the whole trilogy and using Reaper technology after the Reapers' defeat to restore humanity.

Pretty sure that everyone would rebel at locking away and purging humanity's genetic data after you publicly released it. To say nothing of the fact EVERYONE would have already copied it the moment it was made publicly available (which your previous chapter's ending says it was). It's impossible to hide.
Axccel chapter 6 . 5/5
At the absolute least, Replicant technology can only be used ON A HUMAN. It makes less than no sense for anyone to even consider using it to try to create humans using genetic data. It separates a human soul from a human body. You have to ALREADY HAVE A HUMAN FIRST.

Replicant technology has nothing to do with cloning or reproducing humans. You have the data, it is easy to use that to grow them in a lab. Even with modern technology it wouldn't be hard if we actually tried to make artificial wombs for it. Let alone with NieR: Automata's technology.

There is no reason at all for them to not have been quickly and easily successful.

I mean, I get why you'd want to do it this way, but it makes no sense. At all. In any way, shape, or form. It is every bit as nonsensical as if you were to say that mass effect cannot make an object lighter in your story but still allows for reducing mass. There was no point in including this at all.

Heck, with their absolute knowledge of human physiology down to the tiniest detail (given their data has millennia of growth and advancement before the alien invasion), they could simply create a biological human using genetic engineering and that result would, in fact, be genetically homo sapiens sapiens in every way. The data of which they can then record and use. They don't even NEED humanity's genetic data to rebuild humanity.
Axccel chapter 21 . 5/5
Given how biotics works, there is no reason to think non-organics can't use it. In fact, they'd be far better suited for it and it's strange that in Mass Effect such systems aren't standard in hardsuits.
Axccel chapter 19 . 5/4
Pretty cool!

There was nothing pointless about the Machine Wars, though. The machine lifeforms wanted to destroy the androids. So, even without the human extinction thing, they'd have been fighting.

And personally, I doubt any kind of "anti-synthetic" weapons of the Krogan (or Mass Effect in general) would be useful against the androids. They're pretty freakishly advanced. And the Geth are a pretty good example that no such weapons really exist or are of any real advantage in the setting.
Axccel chapter 18 . 5/4
No reason not to fire the genophage before and while attempting SAR operations.
Axccel chapter 17 . 5/4
Given the Salarians' style, I don't think they had the genophage ready before the war. I think that they most likely have large amounts of, and dedication to creating, VI and equipment for making such weapons and other tailored weaponry and large organizations for them. To create things like the genophage on demand as soon as possible without the risk to the Unions' reputation and security, and that of their allies, that having such weapons already made would present.

Also, the maso system in this chapter's codex is entirely unncessary. We have ways of eliminating static build-up in real life. Bioware just either wasn't aware of that or ignored it. I think one of them is called the floating ground principle.
Axccel chapter 16 . 5/4
I think the androids would love the book "AI". I think that's it's name. It's the one that I think begins with the first AI being made and being asked what it wants and it asks for a glass a champagne to celebrate with the scientists and then ends up with like a nuclear war or something and then a family adopting some little boy they found in the woods and later it is revealed that he is the last human and everyone are androids pretending to be a human society to make his life as normal as possible so that he can have a happy life and to keep humanity alive in spirit out of loyalty.

I don't remember who wrote it.
Axccel chapter 1 . 5/3
They have the genetic data and stuff in the server still. That can be used to restore humanity and the rest of life on Earth that was destroyed.

I don't see why both characters in the game and fans of the game don't ever seem to remember that detail. It's pretty important and completely craps on the "humanity surviving is a lie" thing. Turning it from absolutely true to only technically being true. Defending that data would still be of paramount importance. Nothing has changed.
Chaosconetic chapter 23 . 4/4
This has been such a great fic to read. Loved every chapter so far. I guess since it hasn't been updated in 6 years its unlikely it'll continue, but I thoroughly enjoyed what has been written. Excellent tier writing quality.
AyeJimmy123 chapter 23 . 3/27/2022
Maglad chapter 23 . 1/25/2022
Well, I enjoyed this fic immensely. Hopefully it'll get new chapters soon, though if nothing comes out for another two years I may just adopt it. *shrugs*
Zaru chapter 9 . 8/5/2021
There’s our first contact. Now things are getting interesting
Zaru chapter 8 . 8/5/2021
About time that rachni hatched. Thought we would never get to some mass effect stuffbhaha
Zaru chapter 1 . 8/3/2021
Of all the first contacts, why did it have to be the rachni…

This does look promising to say the least.
Anonymous chapter 1 . 4/20/2021
For anyone who looks at the reviews, thought I'd just let you know that this author wrote a lot more of this on Spacebattles. Updated as recently as 2020.
