“Just relax, Andrea.” That voice…it sounded familiar.
“George? Is that you?” Andrea asked. George was the school nerd. He was picked on a lot by the jocks and the sports players because of his lack of physical abilities. But there was no denying the boy was brilliant. Behind his weak and geeky exterior was a genius. But George had recently been out of school doing something, that no one knew or understood what. But what was George doing here? What was SHE doing here? What was going on?
“I’m sorry for having to do this Andrea…but I had no choice.” George said.

"Honey." He rubbed her shoulder, then brushed his hand across her face. "Time to get up."
"I don't wanna go out there," she mumbled. "The animals are weird."
"They're not weird. They're aliens."
"That's the weird part."
He smiled. "It's an alien planet. It would be weird if they weren't aliens. They're normal for here."
"You think it's normal for an animal's neck to be a solid bone with porcupine quills growing out of it?"
"Well of course it sounds weird if you put it that way."
"I don't wanna be here anymore," she mumbled.
The statement hung in the air. He pulled his hand away.
"What do you want to do?" he asked gently. "Do you want to go home?"
"I don't know. I just don't...I can't stay here anymore. I don't like weird things the way you do." She paused. "Everything you like is weird."
"I like you, and you're not weird."
"Yes I am."

Just your basic Gauss weapons, these were chosen over MAC-style weaponry due to the fact they offer more reliable accuracy, slightly faster muzzle velocity, and much less obvious weapon report at the cost of more power-to-shot and smaller effective projectile size, more fitting to their precise way of doing things.
Fusion beamers are simply more powerful forms of lasers, in fact using several lasers combined together to create it's projectile. It uses a large amount of power per shot, but as a result does more damage than similarly-sized laser weapons, at the cost of it using too much power to efficiently function as a CIWS system.
Lynx missiles are highly efficient for their small size. They're small, fast, and highly destructive,

"Hey Asaya." Nox smiled but quickly frowned when she saw how upset her friend was. "You look upset, is everything okay?" she asked.
"Yeah, I'm fine, thank you." Asaya replied sincerely but was still upset about Salem. "Have you guys seen Salem?"

"Thalia wait, don't!"
The assassin's eyes widened as he realized he hit Thalia's father instead of Thalia. Her eyes were wide with shock, but Logan held her arm to keep her from running forward. The assassin appeared to be visibly shaken by this turn of events for some reason, and he took a slow step back, shakily putting his gun back in its holster.
Thalia stared at him. "Who are you?!" She shouted. "J-Just leave us alone!"
The assassin stared back at her, his green eyes wide. "I-I'm sorry..." Then he turned and leapt up onto the railing and to the other ship and disappeared into the crowds.
O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills
Thalia yanked herself from Logan's grip and fell to her knees beside her father. "Dad?" She called, shaking him. But he didn't make any response.

It didn't nearly inhabit the proportions of an ordinary smile, and not those of a villainous grin or a psychopath's smile, either. The only description that fit it properly was a bitter smile. One that wasn't happy nor crazy, but sinister; a remnant of a tormented soul. Yet, the man didn't show any signs of being anything close to broken. Instead, his attitude showed great pride and superiority. A pure image of might.
Emily was the first of the two to become stricken by the man's intimidating figure. She noticed she had subconsciously backed off a little to hide behind Dante, her flightless wings held high, alerted by the hostile presence. It bugged her that she couldn't see the man's eyes. They were shy, unlike his attitude, because they hid themselves behind a pair of sunglasses and a few strands of dark, wavy hair. They kept his so

I woke up 3 days after the grail war ended with a lump in my bed next to me. That lump was a girl with long purple hair about a shade lighter than Sakura ankle length hair, she looked about Ilya’s age but after structural analysis she was much older and kind of a reverse servant like existence, as in she gave me prana instead of taking mine. When she woke up her voice was the same one I heard in my head. The strange girl said her name as Al Azif the spirit of the Necronomicon; I read on grimoires a bit while Waver was away and every book and text that book was the top one bound in flesh and inked in blood was quite literal in this sense. With my link to her came new swords, swords in neither the Gate of Babylon nor Archer’s Unlimited Blade works I wonder what adventures the Shirou Emiya or Kouzou Hadou had been on.

"From the crash footage we managed to salvage, I believe she...managed to jump out before it crashed, it was a fatal explosion and there were no survivors. But...I can't track her down. Her helmet may have either been broken or she's dead." his voice was thick, his brows furrowed together in a grim fashion. He looked to his companion who was watching the repeat of the crash.

Many attempts have been made by the Irken Empire to destroy and eradicate the threat. However they have not only survived every attempt but appear to be learning and adapting to harsh conditions. Also they are figuring out technology and how to communicate through other languages.

A proximity alarm sounded in a small dugout. The boy inside twitched violently, startled out of his sleep. Yawning, he lifted his head off of the old radio he’d slept on. Looking over at the pile of electronics in one corner of the bunker, he stared blankly at the flashing light of the alarm for several seconds. Then, his eyes widened. Jumping up, he rummaged through the heap, finally pulling out a battered, homemade headset. Plugging it into the radio and sliding it on, he fiddled with the dials for a few moments before clearing his throat and saying in a clear voice, “We know what we are, but know not what we may be.”
The radio was silent for a few moments before a tinny female voice replied, “Passcode accepted.”
The boy grinned. “Hey, Steph! This is Leigh, checking in!”
The voice on the other end gave an annoyed huff. “HQ to Atlas, we read you.”

A fifteen meter diameter semi-circle of glassteel panels is all that separated us from space. It was a magnificent view, but one that would be often useless in actual combat, which is why each panel also doubled as a viewing screen.
Front and center was the helm and engineering stations. Behind and to port was the weapons station. Front and starboard was the captain’s chair and behind that the holoscreens for the navigation charts. The captain’s seat was nondescript, plain wood. It didn’t look very comfortable, none that I have ever seen did.

So they decided that they would have to find out where they came from themselves.
they are about average in their level of technology when compared to the other races. but their main cultural difference from the aliens is that they have no concept of racism or sexism. gudrians are all various shades of grey, the only difference between genders is that females lack horns, and minor facial features help distinguish individuals. all clothing is gender neutral as well. clothing is typically long warm clothing when on other worlds, only in warmer climates will they wear different clothes.
