Mass Effect Universe: Location Earth

Hacket sighed as he tossed another OSD onto his desk and stood up. It was tough being an Admiral. It was even tougher dealing with all the bullshit that came with it. He had been trying repeatedly to get the Alliance more involved in the business with the Reapers but like the council they refused to believe it. He had no doubt in Shepard what so ever, He had seen the battle first hand when they defeated Sovereign. The council chose to portray it as a Geth ship, but he knew better.

He glanced out his window towards the ocean. He shook his head as he picked up another OSD. Things had gotten strange with the council lately. First they deny the Reapers, now according to reports they were building ships like they were going out of stock. His superiors believed they were building a defense fleet in case of another Geth attack but he himself believed that they were secretly preparing for the impending Reaper invasion.

He sighed and turned back to his desk only to freeze in place. In front of him was a woman dressed in the most revealing outfit he had ever seen.

"Who are you?" He asked as he casually inched his hand towards the underside of his desk. He kept his pistol attached to the underside of it. No chance in not taking precautions.

"I wouldn't do that if I were you." She said holding up her hand. In it dangled his pistol and she tossed it behind her without a care in the world.

"What do you want?" He asked. His eyes began searching the room for something to use as a weapon.

She laughed and it sent a shiver up his back. "Oh, well get to that in a moment. Now why don't you look at me." She said as she sashayed her way over towards him.

He was a married man and proud of it, but the way this woman was dressed and the way she moved brought out a stirring in him that he had long forgotten. He stared up into her face only to see that half of it was hidden by cloth. Her eyes were reptilian that could make a younger man loose himself.

"I'm sorry miss, but you need to leave." He said moving towards the com button on his desk. As he reached for it a hand quickly grabbed his wrist. He looked up to stare into the face of another woman.

"Now Now, we didn't say anything about unwanted visitors." She said smiling quickly. Her face turned into a snarl and she jerked his arm. He flew through the air before crashing into a table near the wall.

He must have blacked out for a moment cause when he opened his eyes the two women were arguing with each other.

"What the hell did you do that for Kasumi?" Mileena growled. Her eyes seemed to flash with color.

The other woman, Kasumi? She sighed and folded her arms across her chest. "Well, you've been having your fun.. I just wanted to have a bit myself." She said smiling.

"Now Now Girls, Is it really necessary to bicker?" A man's voice said. I turned my head to stare at what could possibly be the devil himself.

The man's black armor and menacing helmet would cause pure terror in anyone ordinary person. Hackett however, was a seasoned military man.

"What are you doing here?" He growled as he sat up. Both women scowled at him.

"Show some respect to your Emperor." Mileena said as she turned towards him.

"It's quite alright ladies." The man in the black armor said. He walked over to me and knelt down. "Now, were going to have a little chat."

The man turned to the two women. "Have the others continue with the plan. I'll be along shortly." He said. The man turned back to me. "Now, let's have some fun." He said chuckling evilly.


"This is Emily Wong Reporting. Alliance Official's on Earth in a surprising move have announced that there is indeed Reaper threat. If your not familiar with what the Reapers are be sure to read the 'Commander Shepard and the Battle of the Citadel' for further information on that subject. The Alliance Military is taking this seriously and is now in full build mode in preparation of the upcoming battle. In another surprising turn of events Asari Official's on Thessia are acknowledged the Alliance's information and are currently building ships as well. I've also learned that Officials from both governments are in talks to create a join fleet to deal with the Reapers once they appear. In other news..."

I yawned and turned the vid screen off and sat back in the chair. I turned my head to gaze out at the lights and flying cars of the Citadel.

"Things appear to be going as planned do they not my Emperor." Tevos said from a chair across from me. I raised an eyebrow at her and she quickly dropped her gaze and stared at the floor.

The room was quiet for a moment before I nodded my head and turned back to the window. "It is indeed. What word do you have for me on Palaven?" I asked.

"All is going according to plan. The gas has been distributed to nearly ninety percent of the planet. It is only a matter of time before it is part of the Empire sire." She said staring at the floor.

I nodded "Very good. Inform one of my generals when the take over is complete. Now, I must take my leave." I said standing up. Tevos quickly dropped to one knee and brought her right fist to her chest. "May the Empire last forever." She said.

I nodded and activated the portal and stepped in. What greeted me was Washu and Tali growling at each other.

"If you would just leave my things alone we would be done by now." Washu growled.

Tali growled and got in Washu's face. "Just because your genius doesn't mean that you can fix everything mechanical." Tali shouted back.

"Is there a problem?" I asked. I was quite amused with the expressions on both the women.

Washu turned o me with an angry stare. "This woman will not leave my tools alone." She growled. Her pink hair seemed to flare around her.

Tali huffed and turned to me "That's a lie. I was simply borrowing a few tools so in order to modify the portable Portal generator. But Pinky here, has a problem with that." Tali said jerking a finger at Washu who was growling at her.

The two women continued to bicker for a few minutes longer until I had enough "Shut Up, The both of you." I yelled.

Both women glared daggers at me. I took a moment to calm myself before speaking. "Now, you two need to learn to work together ok?" I said fixing each of them with a gaze. Hesitantly both women nodded and I relaxed.

"Washu, have you completed satellites I asked you about?" I asked while eying the pink haired woman. Washu eyed Tali one last time before shifting her attention to me and nodding. She turned and headed across the lab before coming to a stand still in front of a door.

Washu pressed a few buttons and the door opened revealing a large spacious room. Washu walked into the room with Tali and I following. Inside the room were several giant pieces of machinery that resembled giant balls of junk.

"Are these my satellites?" I asked frowning. Washu nodded. I was slightly disappointed but knowing Washu there was more than meets the eye.

She walked over to a table and picked up small box with buttons. She pressed one and the piles of junk started to move. They shifted places and suddenly formed large spheres. The spheres seemed to shimmer like they were water.

"Ok Washu, please explain" I said slightly confused. Washu flashed me her trademark smirk before beginning.

"These spheres will orbit a planet of our choosing. Precisely they will orbit the planets that we have operations on. They can provide a variety of defenses for the planet." She said.

I nodded "Excellent, but what kind of defenses to be precise are we talking about?" I asked.

She pressed a few buttons and the spheres changed and took on different shapes. "They have three basic defenses. They have an automated Asgard Plasma Beam cannon. That's the main gun so to speak. It has a EMP burst that it sends to disable an enemy ships shields. It also has a hack prof code. It runs on a range of signals that are coded." She finished proudly.

I nodded "Very good Washu."

She beamed at me and gave a small bow "For the Empire."

I turned to Tali. "I know you two have your disagreements, but the time for that is over. I want you and Washu to work on a cure for your people Tali."

Tali's eyes widened as a broad smile appeared on her face. "Yes Emperor" She said before spinning on her feet and headed towards the door.

I sighed and after giving Washu a glance teleported to the main waiting room.

To my delight Kurumu greeted me. "My Emperor, The Replicators from the Stargate Universe have contacted us. They have built a grand city similar to Atlantis on the planet that we settled them on. Perhaps there is a way we can bring it here?" She asked.

I smiled at the thought of what my Replicators had accomplished. But, we would need that city as a base in that universe. I turned to Kurumu "No, we will use it as a base in that universe. In fact, that gives me an idea. I'm going to send word for the Replicators in the Mass Effect universe to begin construction on a city. It will be located on one of the remote worlds we've chosen. I'm also commissioning the construction of several small unmanned space stations. They will work in tandem with our operations in that universe. I want all the info I can get about the Reapers and Collectors, Begin the next phase immediately." I said dismissing her. She nodded and turned to head out. Things were coming along nicely.


After giving my greetings to my two daughters and Jean I had made my way to the bath. It was located on a patio about seven stories up and had a perfect view of the sunset on the African plain. As I relaxed in the hot tub 'One' whispered in my mind.

'Master, the satellites that Washu provided are excellent.'

I smiled 'How so 'One'? I asked.

'They were placed over our planet in the Stargate Universe. The Wraith that had came to investigate before returned. The Satellites obliterated them.'

'Excellent, proceed as planned.' I said.

After 'One' had acknowledged my instructions I closed my eyes and sighed. "You look tired." I opened my eyes to see Jean stepping into the hot tub with me. She made her way over to me and sat down beside me.

"I am somewhat, I've been constantly running non stop for days now. I miss you and the girls." I said.

Jean looked at me and smiled "I'm glad to see that there is still a human in there after all." She said.

I gave her a puzzled look "What do you mean?"

She once again smiled "I know how hard your working to protect us all. I know in the beginning you tried hard not to show the discomfort that you had with what was done to you. Believe me, becoming human all of a sudden after so many years of being what I was." Jean paused for a moment as she stared out at the sunset before turning back to me. I did a sharp intake as the light from the sun made her look almost angelic. "In a way, I am thankful to the Aliens. They gave me back my humanity, but at a price. They've destroyed countless worlds and I will not stand for that. It goes against everything I believe in. It goes against everything our empire believes in." She finished as she snuggled up to my chest.

I stared down into her eyes and kissed her and felt her smile into the kiss. "I'm glad to see that you have firm beliefs my love. Tomorrow is the ship naming. Than we will begin to explore our operations in this universe. I am interested to know whether or not anything like those other universes exist here." I said leaning back and sighing.

Jean nodded and stared out at the African plain. The sun had just about disappeared. The image was beautiful. I turned to Jean and she was chewing on her bottom lip.

"Jean, is something wrong?" I asked. She was looking slightly shaken up. She turned to me and I could see tears in her eyes.

"I'm not sure, I haven't had my woman days in quite awhile. I think somethings wrong." Jean said suddenly getting up. I got up with her and after grabbing a towel. I joined Jean in the room where she was sitting on the bed crying.

"Washu!" I yelled. A few moments later a portal opened and the pink haired crazy woman stepped out.

"You know I don't normally make house calls." Washu cracked.

"Har Har, I want you to check over Jean. Somethings wrong with her." I said.

Washu sighed at her joke failing but nodded in regards to Jean. I watched as a bag seemed to appear out of thin air and she began to check over Jean. After several minutes Washu closed her bag and it vanished into thin air.

"Well, what's wrong?" I asked pulling Jean to me.

"Oh, nothings wrong.. except Jean's pregnant." Washu said with a slight smirk.

I looked at Jean who had a look of total shock on her face. "I'm I'm WHAT!" She yelled.

I didn't hear or see much as my eyes promptly rolled to the back of my head and I passed out.
