It’s definitely plausible that some commanders wouldn’t particularly agree with this bloodthirsty animal. I think that all too often in fanfics showcasing a First Contact scenario, the Turians are depicted as a race unified in its militaristic pursuits and overall stubborn, almost imperial-like rigidity of society.
As you’ve demonstrated well here, contrarily the Turians are in no was a hive mind. Props to you for addressing the individual mind instead of having a whole race be “one” character. Excellent chapter on a roll.

I like reading your story author and I do hope you enjoyed making it as well.
Cheers to you author since this is your story to make and I hope to read more of your splended work.

Theoretically, it is possible for Humans to extend our lifespan by 50% of the average, so maybe forty to fifty years. There was a study at the Spanish National Cancer Centre, which deduced that mice producing 10x more Telomerase live approximately 50% longer than the average mouse.
We could possibly make it that Humans could live nearly 1.5x longer than we currently do, but because there is no way to actually perform genetic therapy ethically as of yet, no-one wants to try it. But even then, that's not entirely true and there are methods.
C.R.I.S.P.E.R is a tech that is currently under development which could act as the solution. By modifying the genes that produce telomerase, an enzyme that maintains the caps at the ends of the chromosomes which help prevent cell damage, in the next 20-30 years even, humans could be living 1.5 times as long as we used to.
Since Mass Effect takes place nearly 100 years in the future, I have no doubt that this would happen. Who knows, we might have even made ourselves lobsters, biologically immortal. But that's much less likely considering we haven't actually tested that yet. We have tested the telomerase thing.
As for uplifting, the Auri've technically, at least from what I've read of this story (and understood), don't actually possess the Ascension perk for the Genetic path, only the Psionic one. If they were to give humans Psionics, then yes, that could be considered uplifting but this path is more up to your own discretion. If you think it's uplifting, then it's uplifting.

Love the setup so far, can't wait to see where it goes from here. A story where the Council attacks a pacifistic, peaceful nation is another pretty rare occurrence. I'm eager to see how both the Auri've and the Alliance respond. I could see the Auri've, being the pacifists they are, feel reluctant to do anything except defend their own space. But based on their society we've seen so far, I could also imagine them being completely ruthless in denying further aggression.
Also, pretty good opportunity here for the Alliance to come to their aid and forge even better relations.
Anyways, thank you for updating, looking forward to more :)

Pretty good, I really hope the Citadel races get wreaked.

The System's Alliance has had over 20 years to study Auri've tech, so do they at least have their own teir one stellaris tech? It would make sense...

Hopefully Auri've Union's Particle Lance will be improved to be more reliable and their other techs as story progress after this first contact fiasco, will Auri've Union build megastructures in the future? Maybe even joint megaproject between Auri've Union and humans or even other species? Would also be interesting to see Gate fic spinoff if you decided to do that in the future; pacifistic spiritual and overpowering fox girls vs evil slavers of Saderan Empire.

So what's the head count on turian side? Was it Pyrrhic victory for turian fleet or is it still battle capable? Just how much of its fleet power it lost in taking that spaceport?
All surviving turians (i think there will be only a couple) boarding that spaceport will have the nightmares for the rest of their lives.
This would be good time for Humans to come in and wreck turrian fleet remains and show just how huge of hornets nest they stirred up!

Turians are probably the dumbest (baring Garus) aliens ever.
| coduss chapter 5 . 10/11/2019
and this is is the fault i find with all supposedly pacifistic nations in settings like this. not wanting to fights all well and good until some other asshole comes over and kicks you in the teeth

Oh god, oh fuck, oh no. This isn’t what I expected at all! It’s still very good! But, seriously, fuck the Turians. *picks up radio* yes, ukraine, where are the karlsruhe-Class battleships? in starport? shit
Keep up the good work!

Could be the perfect time for humanity to show that terrifying unity when presented with an outside threat

If I could make a suggestion, humans could also develop the trait Enduring from the game with the help of the Fox-people. I also feel like it would be interesting for humans to go down the route of Genetic accession to help them get the Enduring trait, but that's just me.
