In the year 350,000 B.C., refugee scientists from Mars landed on Earth as their world was already begin to die. They landed on a small island
that was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. When they had landed, they began to build a base and a small city so they could recreate their
civilization. By there on Earth, they realized that they need a slave race to help with buildings of cities and the mining of metals and minerals.
A team of the Martian scientists flew to the continent of Africa to find indigineous people to be this slave race of theirs, but the only race of people
at the time were Homo Erectus. The scientists captured a few hundred of these natives and thus began to experiment on them, and with these experiments came
a new race of men, called Homo Atlantea. Over the years, this new race saw their creators as gods, and some of the scientists would interbreed with
the new of race of humanity and were also worshipped as demigods. 310,000 years had passed, a

High above the rural side of the planet Caprica, the Hercules-class Battlestar Sleipnir cruised through space.
"Sitrep!" the Commander called out to his XO as he entered the bridge. It was a hive of activity. Ensignes constantly moved texts from station to station in a carefully coordinated pattern that seemed to the untrained eye like clear chaos. The Sleipnir's bridge more closely resembled the original Battlestars and lacked the full automation of the newest Mercury-class. Externally it packed a punch far greater than its older brothers but only almost as potent as its newer siblings. Rushed into production at a time following the first Cylon War when invasion was considered a real possibility, the Sleipnir's design had been meant to be a remedy for the fears of old.
"Sir!" the XO responded. "Reports are coming in from all over the fleet. Reports of strange new ships appearing throughout the Colonies. The Admiralty is preparing to issue a statement. Sources close t

Pacific Rim, a review
In the near future, giant monsters identified as "Kaiju" have risen from a portal in a crevasse beneath the Pacific Ocean, resulting in a war that takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity's resources. To combat the monsters, a special type of weapon is designed: massive robots, known as Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two or three pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge which prevents the mental strain which would overwhelm a single pilot.
As a longtime defender of Michael Bay's Transformers, allow me to say one thing: Eat your heart out, Mr. Bay. There is a new king!
The movie starts with Raleigh (Charlie Hunnam) and his brother Yancy (Diego Klattenhoff) Beckett, being instructed to suit up to fight a kaiju, designated Category Four in danger and size. They wade out into the Pacific in their Jaeger, Gipsy Danger, with orders to kill the kaiju and save the city, but ignore the small fishing boat that

On the desks, the projects already say otherwise. The lines on the paper build complex maps, tracing a huge future for you - they show hundreds of wires and embroidered metal boards, a high-tech hard disk, and what, so they say, will be the most precise system of lenses in the world.
You wait, patiently. Your senses are still dim; the small optic is weak, whereas touch, smell and taste won't exist in your world.
Most of all, you hear. You hear their speeches, you hear their laughs; you hear a male voice repeating orders, as your supervisors type them in. Simple instructions – simple footage of experiments, with audio comment.

Always, every working day, you hear them say that you will become something great. You believe it – it is a fact, a truth like any other.

I hope folks will excuse the summary-like nature of what you are about to read. This is actually the text of a response to a comment made on the previous post, but since it adds to Prin's back story, I thought I should put it here.
From Prin's days as a Greenskirt:
On a routine patrol, her rifle squad would encounter a small BeeDub unit, roving around on its own in the field. The other members of the squad are taken in by its innocuous little noises and beeps and its charming facial expressions. The women shoulder their weapons and kneel over the little drone like school girls over a stray cat.
There is even talk of adopting it.
"Are you lost, little guy?"
Then suddenly, Prin impales the intelligent device with her trusty Jet Knife, and raises her rifle.
Prin says nothing to the protests of her squad mates, who complain to the tune of,

Perfect Dreams Or Imperfect Reality?Perfect Dreams Or Imperfect Reality?3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Do you ever get that feeling,
Do you ever think that maybe,
Your dreams are just too perfect,
Hidden inside of your head.
Do you ever get the feeling,
That the dreams you dream are nothing,
Nothing till realities had it's say,
And added a few imperfections to the perfect image.
Do you ever think that perfection,
Is simply not enough,
Without a few meddles and difficulties,
Along the way.
That time you imagined lying in the grass in a meadow,
Wrapped arm in arm with your loved one,
Did you think that maybe if it was real,
It would start to rain?
Or maybe you'd accidentally lie on some stinging nettles?
Did you ever imagine to tip wine all over the person you are withs clothes?
Or to catch a cold from that snowball fight at midnight?
Or to have an allergic reaction to the grass you laid on?
Or maybe even have you car break down on the side of the high way?
It's the imperfect moments that make everything perfect,
The way you turn the broken down car,
Into a picnic under the stars,

It didn't because G.G. was tap dancing on Hatchworth's head. Rabbit and The Spine laughed and G. G. ran off with a spoon. Rabbit sang Honeybee to his pet narwhal. The Spine was puzzled by the narwhal, for it had a tap dancing walrus in the van it drove.
Rabbit used his feet to kick the narwhal to start it up, but it bit him.
"Ouch!" yelled Rabbit in pain.
The Spine wanted to get out of the story but Rabbit shot him back in.
"Drat!" yelled The Spine.
"Haha" boomed imposter Upgrade. The Spine screamed and broke the purple window, out of which sprung MERKER! He yelled, "My favorite window!"
Merker was not amused. “I've created a monster.”

You were walking down the snow covered sidewalk, swinging your arms as you headed home. It was winter in Canada; all you wanted to do was curl up next to a fire... Until you heard very soft sniff and what sounded like quiet sobs, making you freeze in your tracks. Yep, you could clearly hear it; it was from a little boy next to a large tree. He had chin-length hair with a strange curl that drooped from his blonde bangs; but he had a scared look on his adorable face and tears ran down from his light blue eyes, dripping onto his snow white teddy bear. Your heart broke at the sight and rushed towards the boy.
"Are you lost? Where are your parents?" You asked softly, kneeling down to his height. The child jumped at the sudden voice and looked at you with the most saddest expression.
"Pa-arents? W-where am I?" He spoke in a quiet voice as he hugged his bear closer, he seemed like he was an orphan.
You smiled warmly, "I'm (Name), what's your name?" "Matthew W-Williams..." "Well, Matthew, you

MASS EFFECT 3 ALTERNATE ENDING *SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*
**EDIT** Holy crap this got way more attention than I was expecting. The comments and support have been amazing everyone!
A few points: Credit where credit is due; this ending, as much as everyone seems to love it, was only created because the amazing team at Bioware created a universe that was so rich and full of life and detail. As much as I know a lot of fans are hurt by what they did, we need to remember that Bioware still created an incredible trilogy, one of the best ever. So hats off to them all round.
Also, this was written really fast and so the ending (specifically the last part on how you actually win using TIM's signal) isn't very fleshed out. I know there are holes, and they can actually be fixed quite easily. This isn't perfect. Also, this doesn't deal with a 'happy' ending. If there were to be one, or you were to even CONSIDER taking the fourth option, you'd need to be damn ready. I'm talking ALL war assets e
