Mar 2, 2014((Yeah, exactly. Besides, no matter how inflated my ego is and no matter how much i'd like to think that I'm a tactical genius, I'm actually a complete idiot.))Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
The diplomats bring the group to the bridge of the starship, which was quite obviously designed for utility only despite the president designing it himself. It's certainly a strange place for the leader of a nation to be.
Dmitri's chair rotates towards the alien envoy, and he stands up.
"It is an honor to meet your people in person, now, what do you wish to discuss?"
Fergus runs over to Emily, and waits for her to wake up. When she does, no time has passed for her, but she knows that it's been a while since the accident. She looks down at herself, expecting to see the horrific injuries caused by the accident, but instead sees her skin as if it was brand new.
"How long has it been?" She asks, not realizing Fergus.
"Over a century." Replies Fergus, she looks towards him and is startled by his robotic body.
"Who are you!?"
"Fergus, Fergus McClain."
"No, the original. I've been though a lot of treatments and surgeries to stay alive until the problems of sentient life are gone. I thought that space would make me happy, it did, but it didn't make me truly happy like I thought it would. Then I thought that alien life would do it, but then we made contact and I spent a day on defending Earth from a test. Since then we've seen so many other species, but none of them made me truly happy. We have discovered new technologies, we can even outrace the rays of the sun, but none of that made me truly happy. Now I realize that only one thing can make me truly happy, and they're a sentient being, a sentient being called Emily."
They embrace, and she sees Faust an the Draconian Goddess. She gasps and once the embrace is broken she looks at Fergus.
"What the hell are they? Are they aliens?"
"I believe the best way to describe them would be Goddesses, and for some reason they decided that I should be the first human for them to talk to. I have learned a lot today."
Fergus turns to Faust, and with tears in his eyes, he thanks her.
"You have not just given me true happiness, you have given humanity a great gift in Emily. I can promise you that I will do what you want me to, what both of you want me to. It doesn't matter how small and powerless the Earth Alliance is, a long time ago I was able to go home due to Emily's genius and my determination despite the fact that I should have never qualified. We did the impossible together, and we can do it again."

And flamewars, some of those as well.
Don't forget the entire nation of misanthropes.
Mar 2, 2014((Exilius, you're accepted))Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
((I don't think a reboot is required yet, besides, long-range FTL jumps are perfectly realistic if calculations are done first, and by the time this roleplay takes place humanity will have more computing power in a microchip than all of the human brains combined. Then there's the whole 100 ships thing, that is quite simply ridiculous for a future setting with FTL, unless it starts the moment FTL is invented. Of course, if you would like a roleplay like that you could make it. I would probably join.))
One of the diplomats looks at the aliens with a surprised expression, amazed that they can read minds.
"This is your first contact, and you have the technology to read minds? That's quite an accomplishment, well, in this case I literally can bring you to my leader. Right this way, please."
The diplomat makes a motion for the alien diplomats to follow, and walks towards the lift.
Fergus stares at the cryotube, and through the external ice he can just barely see the face of Emily. When he came back after the seven-year mission to Proxima Centauri nobody knew where the cryotube was, since the company that made it went bankrupt.
"You've brought me to Emily." He says, completely stunned. Then it sinks in, Faust is a Goddess, and there are a multitude of poweres that deities are often believed to have. One of the most common is miraculous healing...
"Can you heal her?"
Mar 1, 2014((Don't worry, if anyone uses their god to make themselves powerful then I'll make sure a negative space wedgie destroys their species. Besides, any sufficiently advanced technology can appear as magic, so these gods are most likely extra-dimensional beings that decided to genetically engineer some species for their amusement or goals.))Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
Fergus is astonished with what the humanoid Goddess has just said. In the corners of his mind reason is screaming that it's all just a trick, that someone found an old census identifying him as a religious individual and decided to play a prank on him, but he ignores it. If everything being said is true, then it would be the most important discovery of his life.
"Then why make humanity? The Draconians are clearly your favorite, you have never spoken to a human before and your clothing appears as if it is made of Draconian scales. Is my species a mistake of some sort? An unintended consequence of some action?"
Mar 1, 2014((Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
Well the Flying Spaghetti Monster predates both
Please tell me you're not going to debate over whose Goddess is oldest.))
Fergus is popular with Deities
With the appearance of the second Goddess, Fergus simply stares for a moment. If his robotic body wasn't maintaining his nominal brain activity, he would probably have fainted.
"Two Goddesses, both in my room. Is the arcade in heaven closed or something? Why would both of you choose to visit an Admiral in the military of one of, if not the, most insignificant species in the entire Milky Way Galaxy? I just don't get it."
Mar 1, 2014Message to the Desmendus Fleet from the EAS Vengeance, Admiral Sora's Command ShipPosted in: Forum Roleplaying
"You have destroyed Earth? That is a mistake. A very stupid mistake. Run to your secret hiding place, Had you told us the truth in the first place, we would have left this system and forgiven the attack, but instead you went and took out our homeworld. I am most certainly a hypocrite when I say this, but it's what a friend of mine would say if he were here. You should have tried diplomacy first."
Sol System, Earth Orbit
The EAS Eye of Jupiter orbits above the once vibrant scorched world that is Terra, and the crew cannot believe what has just happened. Reports are coming in from all over the place about similar attacks on other major planets, and after it sinks in a simple message is sent from the ship to every Earth Alliance controlled or allied planet and ship.
"Terra is dead."
"The only important thing I remember doing is being the first of a tiny dust speck of a species on an exoplanet, and since then I have seen my species kill billions upon billion of people. I have always thought that if I were to meet any sort of god, all I would hear would be them condemning me to hell. I might want to help, but it always backfires. The Earth Alliance now wishes for the complete genocide of a species that now only wants peace. If I had never existed, humanity would have gone extinct during the Common Sense War due to it being entirely on Earth. I am not a great man in my eyes."
Mar 1, 2014BattlePosted in: Forum Roleplaying
The Earth Alliance fleet began firing, antimatter missiles were launched at such a speed that a barrage of four was sufficient to take out shields and cause heavy damage to the enemy craft. Every single ship opened fire at the exact same time with their lasers and FPPCs, which began to rip through many of the enemy ships when combined with the decimating power of the antimatter-armed electromagnetic cannons. Jamming cruisers began their passive attack on the enemy's scanners, making them useless with billions of false signatures taking up the readout screens. A message is sent from Admiral Sora's red-painted command ship in response to the most recently recieved one.
"An accident?" She begins, in a manner devoid of any concern. "I find it hard to believe that killing four billion was an accident, especially since your response to me asking for a reason not to wipe you out was met with a brutal attack. Has I been given a good reason, we would have gone home. But now I can clearly see that the attack on Kepler 22b was not the work of a deranged admiral or a misfire, it was an intentional act of war. You think you can defeat our people? We control over six hundred worlds, and as long as I'm alive, not a single one will be destroyed in such a way as Kepler 22b!"
Feb 28, 2014EAS DefiancePosted in: Forum Roleplaying
Fergus suddenly felt as he did the day he first went into space, there were no problems for him. Nothing that had ever happened made him sad, he was content beyond comprehension. Even the Common Sense War was okay to him. He couldn't make sense of it, but he kept trying. The numbers and degrees faded out of his consciousnesses, and his brain was devoted to trying to figure it all out.
"You're a Goddess." He says, almost a whisper now. "Why me though? I'm nothing more than a fly, I live for mere days and then die. Why do you reveal yourself to such an insignificant being?"
Feb 28, 2014EAS DefiancePosted in: Forum Roleplaying
The robotic avatar is turned over to a clone of Fergus's consciousness, and Fergus himself is transferred back into his main body due to an anomaly detected by his scanners. He turns, and sees what appears to be an Equestrian, but this is no normal one. She speaks to him, and he is overcome by the feeling he gets whenever he looks out into the ocean of stars outside the ship's hull, or whenever somebody says thanks to him, or when he has saved someone's life. The last time he felt it with this kind of power though, was when he hijacked a shuttlecraft to abandon the CSS Gabriel during the Common Sense War, a day he considers the most important moment of his life. He stands up, and takes a step towards Faust.
"Who... who are you? How do you know me? Why are you here?"
Feb 28, 2014Draconian DiplomacyPosted in: Forum Roleplaying
The single Earth Alliance diplomat replies to the Draconian's statement.
"Understood, no humans will cause any trouble. If any do, then we will not even think about trying to stop whatever punishment you desire. Not that we could stop it anyway."
Unknown Alien Situation (Exilius)
The massive fleet of Earth Alliance starships exits warp on the outskirts of what they have determined to be an outlying system of the foreign empire. Shields come to life and weapons power up as the drone fighters swarm from the carrier ships, the blue glow of their relativistic plasma engines illuminating the larger ships. Attack ships begin streaking towards the enemy planet, their FPPC cannons lighting up with the orange pre-fire positron mass. The larger cruisers are swarmed by protective drones, especially the EAS Vengeance, Admiral Sora's command ship. A message is sent from that central ship straight to the alien planet, spoken by Admiral Sora herself in a deep but feminine ruthless voice that you wouldn't here from any other human.
"I am Admiral Sora of the Earth Alliance, you have attacked and destroyed one of our planets. In that action, you killed billions of sentient beings. 4,265,936,261 is the exact number. We don't just let that go unnoticed. Allow me to give you a history of our first contact. A species called the Draconians attacked us with hundreds of ships as a test, we only had four in system along with missile defenses. We passed the test. We may be a horrible and impulsive species, but we have not found an equal in willpower. Tell me why I shouldn't decimate the surface of this world."
Feb 28, 2014Pixie DiplomacyPosted in: Forum Roleplaying
"Well, there are a couple things. I would like to thank your for existing, it shows our people that a person is always a person, no matter their size or homeworld. It is a lesson we have learned, but a lesson that we can always use a reminder of. Secondly, on behalf of the entire Earth Alliance, I thank you for your gift of cultural knowledge." He says, and his worlds are obviously more than a rehearsed line. "In response, I wish to give you a gift of our own"
Fergus takes a small data stick out of a storage container in the robotic avatar, and hands it to the pixie.
"This is an adaptive data stick containing a complete cultural database on our people, minus a few details that we're quite ashamed of. It will adapt to fit whatever computing devices you have. May your path be bright, and the dark parts met with your torches."
"We understand, our docking bays are being opened in case you are given permission."
The battered doors of the EAS Equality's hangar open slowly, and beacons of light shine out from the cavernous room.
