Can't wait for more, love how you capture what it means to be human.
| RaZoRMandiblez chapter 16 . 1/31
Absolutely fascinating and completely riveting. The disjointed style of storytelling you employ works very well, especially when your story is about something as complicated as a first contact between species.
The style reminds me of those segments in movies that try to give a general overview of a situation by rapidly flicking between news reports, interviews and short, precise scenes...like the beginning of district 9.
Can't wait for more!

Great so far really looking foward to more.

Yes, I know it's unlikely that you'll update again after nearly ten months, but I'd love to see more of this story, as irrational as it is. I mean, there's just so much you can do with the technology that the writers of the game either chose not to do (for tonal or rights reasons) or didn't think of, that, when dealing with a different perspective, makes it all rather obvious.

Don't let ME3's ending depress you. You've done a fine job so far. Just write the story you want to write in the ME universe as YOU picture it.
| Michael B. Engli chapter 6 . 1/27
Good work so far. I'm a little disappointed you sidestepped the issue of learning new languages. It seems to me that rather than gloss over a major barrier in interspecies communications, you could have made overcoming that barrier a major feature of the story.
Nonetheless, it is consistent with the Mass Effect universe.

I read the entirety of the story after finding a link to it on TvTropes, and I've got to say, it sort of restored my faith in humanity a bit.
Admittedly, I got a little teary-eyed during the bit of how the Mars rovers were the spiritual forerunners to a manned mission to Mars-purpose built and demonstrating fortitude that was remarkably human, they went forth on their one-way missions to the red planet with the hopes that man might one day join them there. To recover them and bring them back to Earth...it just seems like things coming full circle, 'ya know?
But, I digress. The story is well written (though I didn't care for the some of dialogue-only interview that the Captain had) and has a unique and interesting concept at heart. I'm hopeful that the updates will continue and this piece will continue to develop.

This is a joy to read even if it seems to be lacking plot progress, I really love to read about humanity from an openly curious alien perspective

That rule 34 part made me wonder...
How long would it take to make the extranet into the internet? I just don't see the council races flooding it with cat pictures , gif's and youtube videoes of people getting kicked in the genitals.
This is an entirely new question to me and I need an answer

This is realistic. This is how it would happen.
It's like in that one mlp fix I read where the two worlds meet and they got a phone line working the author wrote:
Approximately 12 minutes after the connection was made public did the first instance of interplanetary phone sex occur.

Interesting. A Nursery species...
That has been done occasionally, though they usually get ignored or set to the side of a story, as they aren't considered combat relevant.
Heh. Unless someone attacks the babies.
Then terrible, horrifying things happen.
Usually to other people.

You missed one thing that Armstong left behind on the moon... He left his Eagle Scout badge there... yes the first man on the moon was a Boy Scout and an Eagle!
| Anderfail chapter 6 . 12/5/2013
No Terminator? I would think tha far more people would know about the Terminator and Skynet than Battlestar Galatica. It's by far the most iconic sentient machines rebel story.

I got here from TV tropes and I've been wondering- are you a troper? Very interesting fic to read, I hope you fiish it.
