Reviews for First Contact
Nianque chapter 16 . 7/20/2014
To me Humanity is unique in its creativity and 'thinking outside the box'. Which I guess you touched on to a point.

Here's an idea for an adaptation of Human tactics. Greek Phalanxes and interlocking shields. Ground warfare could consist of a front line moving forward while carrying extremely resilient shields with kinetic barriers, while the rest of the lines can fire over the shields with arcing rounds. Additionally have every soldier carry a shield that can be easily deployed (such as a small object that extends outward into a shield). It'd be interesting to see Turians carrying riot-shields which have kinetic barriers.

Oh and carriers; I'm interested to see how everyone responds to the carrier based warfare of the Pacific in World War 2. You mentioned it briefly, but I think an in-depth look into the advantages of carriers would be awesome.

I've just finished reading this work in one sitting, and I absolutely love it!
Ramses11 chapter 16 . 7/15/2014
Excellent fanfic, You must continue it.
thepkrmgc chapter 15 . 7/14/2014
this chapter is particularly insightful, and has a lighthearted uniqueness that is typical of this fic.

i really hope this fic isnt forgotten, its top notch and is a very pleasant and thought provoking read
thepkrmgc chapter 14 . 7/14/2014
i imagine that the turians are squeeing over humanity's military history, imagine what will happen when they learn about the roman empire!

nice job on the adaptation of military tech, usually that stuff is only used as an excuse for humans curbstomping the turians during the first contact war
thepkrmgc chapter 13 . 7/14/2014
humanity is a race of extremes, and hypocritical to boot: i imagine its rather disturbing to a lot of aliens
thepkrmgc chapter 12 . 7/14/2014
theres some more interesting sociology stuff, but im surprised that aliens dont have an equivalent reaction to cuteness, tali's interactions with her chittka (her drone) seem to suggest that quarians have something similar at the very least
thepkrmgc chapter 11 . 7/14/2014
human art/culture would be rather strange to the council races, and the gold war is not our finest hour
thepkrmgc chapter 10 . 7/14/2014
why the spirit and oportunity rovers? shouldent curiosity get a trip home too?
thepkrmgc chapter 9 . 7/14/2014
I would have thought that the krogan would have the dubious honor of building the biggest nuke, but i suppose they blew themselves to the stoneage with smaller nukes before they had a chance to escalate
thepkrmgc chapter 8 . 7/14/2014
DOGGIES! their presence is sorely missed in the mass effect verse and they make for an interesting way to look at humanity when the relationship is viewed from an alien perspective. its cute to imagine that the council races will be getting their own puppies!

can you do a similar codex about humanitys interaction with cats?
thepkrmgc chapter 7 . 7/14/2014
the espeionage stuff is odd but the first contact stuff is comedy gold
thepkrmgc chapter 6 . 7/14/2014
that entity is the shadow broker and either someones paying him, hes indoctrinated, or its because he's a yahg
thepkrmgc chapter 5 . 7/14/2014
yay for spinny glowy FTL drives, and i dont see why future astronauts cant have a sense of humor: it has nothing to do with job competence. even the most highly trained astronaught isnt prepared for extraterrestrial contact, and any sci fy fan would be giddy at the concept
thepkrmgc chapter 4 . 7/14/2014
nice point about star wars, it bodes well for any potential extraterrestrial contact
