I really enjoyed this mesh of 3 different stories. I read the first couple books in the Turtledove series a long time ago and think you did a fine job with their arrogance.
Very interesting take on what would have happened had the Colonies not been destroyed. I can certainly see Cain and others acting in such a way. I'm going to look for the prequel story you referenced where O'Neill and crew first encounter the Colonials.
Thanks for a good read. Looking forward to the next installments.

Interesting how you took the normal 'good' guys and painted them black. The thing is I can see this happening. Cain was nut, but all the BSG crew we're familiar with would never be involved here. Admiral Adama was retiring and and the others were well not at the top of their game with the exception of Apollo and possibly Starbuck.
The Race is always fun. Their stuff might not be cutting edge, but by god they've been refined to a fine edge.

it took that last bit to realize that his exclamation was, in fact, alien 'holy crap!'

in 2015 Earth has somewhere around 7 Billion Humans. This is set in 2018. And yet Roberts told Atvar that Earth has 3 Billion...wtf.

As a Stargate fan, I should point out that the Tau'ri don't actually call themselves "Tau'ri" because that's the name given to them by the Goa'uld, I can only think of one episode (Prometheus Unbound) where a human from Earth called himself that and that was only after he realized he was talking to a former Goa'uld host, i.e. someone for whom the term might have some meaning. For a similar example, Brits tend to call Americans "Yankees" but in America the term is only acceptable for people who live in New England; call anyone else that, especially south of the Mason-Dixon line, and you'll be punched in the face. A proper generic term for 'Humans from Earth' is "Terran".

Such an odd race to be sure. Hilarious in a way, but still. Odd.

Great Story! I read it in one go, very entertaining. I love stories where Earth wasn't founded by luddite colonial survivors, but is the home of the human race.
