Hey Galactichan, just another boring day on Stellar Nations Science Outpost Vyrok-7. Got to dock a few supply shipments this morning, nothing major, however a few nights ago:

>movie night
>be one of three humans on station
>other staff (mostly Mekrellians, Choznor and a few Phyrrin) ask me to give them a Human movie because they've heard good things about them
>decide to be a bit of a dick and give them the old pre-spaceflight film Alien
>All my coworkers are shitting themselves in fear after the film, jumping at every creak and keeping away from the air vents
>cute Phyrrin girl literally clings to me afterwards, terrified beyond belief
>she adorable, let her sleep in my quarters
>she crawls into my bed
>she fucking confesses to me
>we have sex
>it's brilliant
>wake up the next morning
>have to literally pry her off of me before work

She's absolutely the cutest thing ever and I love her, but she's so fucking clingy that every time we're alone she literally hugs me nonstop. And every time I go to ask her to let go she blinks at me with those adorable horizontal eye slits. Not sure what I'm going to tell my parents.

So how have you guys been round the Quadrant?

Just be glad you chose Alien and not Apocalypse Now.

Me and some of my coworkers here at Galatic Rim Survey Station Zulu-5 (I'm the only human, station personnel are mostly Khelami but we have these two Ughtakhs that think they are badasses-to-the-core) had a weekend off and we though it would be fun to do a movie marathon. Like, everyone bring two movies and we'll watch em together while cracking a brew or two.

Since some of my coworkers have nagged me to show them some good olde Earth movies i though I'd indulge them. So i brought Two of my favorite old pre-spaceflight earth movies: Saving Private Ryan and Apocalypse Now (with the correct ending).

Let's just say after the landing scene of Saving Privat Ryan one of the Ughtakhs had to run to the 'freshers to puke. Not so fukkin' badass now right? Well at the end of Apocalypse Now when Willard blow the shit out of the jungle temple pretty much everyone except me and one of the Khelami that had seen it before were staring in a mix of fascination and absolute horror at the final scene of surrealistic explosions and burning jungle.

Now some of my coworkers think most of humanity are fucked in the head... Wonder if i should bring Event Horizon next time just o fuck with their minds?

I was stationed at Markadia last year, it was tough too... I was the only human at the station and you guys know how much Marks like to bully other species when in a big group.
Well they all got together to watch a movie and invited me. I was surprised and suspicious, since they usually leave me well out of social things, but i went anyway because why the hell not.
Turns out they had gotten a movie "guaranteed to freak out humans" and wanted to make fun of me as I cowered in fear... and the movie was Friday the 13th.
Now we have all seen the movie, you guys know how it goes, formulaic hockey mask-wearing slasher kills a bunch of teens, no biggie.
it was a biggie for them though, they shrieked like little girls every time Jason made a cut, it was just pathetic.
Since that day I made it a point to carry around my hockey mask, they gave me a wide berth for the rest of the year. Better alone than in bad company i always say

Anyway, as some anons have suggested, the colonies are where it's at. Especially if you're a foodie, believe it or not. Some of the shit people on Indo-Thai planets get up to with alien spices is not to be believed. Like the pad ki mow they make on Sirius 4; tastiest damn plate of noodles I ever had in my life.

>> No.18514192

Actually, the alien larvae thing isn't true. Most species actually can't produce any kind of young with a human. Like when doomed anon's Phyrrin eggs blow up in his stomach, no larvae are gonna come out, just a lot of amniotic fluid and protein goo. He'll still be dead though.

Then again, that's most, not all. In a few cases you'll just get a mostly normal infant of the female's species (about five races do this, I think). There've also been reports that human/Agith pairings have produced infertile crossbreeds with a startling resemblance to classical Earth depictions of angels.

>> No.18514216

Yeah. As much as human movies freak out most aliens, Phyrrin movies just freak me the fuck out.

They aren't horror films, but at the same time, they are. I mean, in EVERY DAMN MOVIE there's a scene where the female Phyrrin lays eggs in the male protagonist, who is devoured from the inside out at some later point.

And everyone is so happy and casual about it. Like it's a normal romance scene in a normal film.

But the guy is SCREAMING in agony at the end of the film, as little freaking worm monsters bore out of his body. And the female phyrrin clearly get off to this. This is what they consider romantic.

But don't let these fearmongers freak you out, OP. You'll poop out the eggs in a few days. Humans can't actually carry Phyrrin eggs to term. We don't have a patriarch's sack in our rectum like Phyrrin Males do, so there's nothing that will keep them from simply passing through you.

You might want to take some laxatives to make sure though.

Ugly incident with the gharns here. Was deployed with another hume on a large sanctioned merchan ship. The problem is, they guy was a dumb earthie and belonged to one of those fringe cults and was mouthing about how eating their young was a sin to god or sth. The Gharn paid him no mind and I tried to explain to him that the larvae is not technically a "Gharn", not "people" but he wouldn't listen. One day he fucking snapped, shot the guards of the ovary and tried to escape with a bunch of larvae. We managed to reduce him and ship him off to a penal colony. Days later I was dismissed because the ship owners didn't want to work with humans anymore.

That being said, I have nothing against earthies but shiiit. Im glad we left that fucking rock

As much as I considered it an extremist view in the past, I find myself more and more sympathetic to the Genetic Alteration Movement, for a more human galaxy.

After all, there's no GOOD reason for the Gharn to eat their own young in this day and age, beyond their innate biological compulsion to do so. They have synthetic compounds in their food that replicate the chemicals found in larvae now.

If we have the power, why don't we simply alter the Gharn to have no desire to eat their children? Reduce the number of natural births.

Why not alter the Phyrrin so that their young does NOT have to eat the father? We've developed artificial placenta that can be used in the father's patriarchal sack.

And there's all those species we can't breed with. Why not alter them so we can?

I'm a firm supporter of the GAM after getting a epidermorph treatment in prep for being the engineer of a Jerlan ship. It was worth it to stop getting the stares for having scale-free pink skin instead of their purple, and luckily it's a long-lasting but impermanent alteration.

Those fuckers are hospitable as all get out, but the poor bastards can't tell an air vent from a reciprocating array, so I was the engineer who drew the short straw and got assigned there to make sure they didn't vent their reactor or something on accident.

To OP, if you think they can take a joke, I'd recommend Mars Attacks for shits and giggles. Just avoid playing it near D'karr and the more uptight L'k!xil!n (<- Did I spell that right? It's hard enough to pronounce with the damn clicks let alone spell).

Naw, it was a bunch of Lo-chanti. They're a smalltime species, only got warp 20 years ago. They just didn't know what a human was, but were trying to be all tolerant and cosmopolitan. They're like... imagine an 8-legged woodchuck with a snail shell the size of a refrigerator unit and a permananly baffled expression, that talks in fart noises. I honestly came to love those guys, they were so fucking clueless. But in a well-meaning, trying-to-learn way.

Not like the Red-red-white crew I had to work for; you know, those gas planet guys? Get this: I'm not the only guy from earth on the ship, so they bunk all the terrans together, right? But I am the only HUMAN. The other terrans were a squad of uplifted cuttlefish. My room was chest-deep, lukewarm seawater, and I had to use a voice-to-color-code comm box to even talk to my roommates.

That was the shittiest tour I was ever on, even before one of the squid got a crush on me. So, one night, I've got the next day off, so I get hammered, she offers me a tentacle-job, I figure, what the hell, it gets good, and suddenly BEAK.

My berth borders on one of the bigger dolphin crew tanks, though; specifically the one for the late adolescent to early adult 'phins.

It's basically one big aqueous night club in there. I actually went over once, figuring I'd have a few drinks, shoot the shit, maybe learn a couple words of clicky-talk that I'd forget by morning. And it actually was like that at first; but then one of my bunkmates, at the insistence of the 'phins, poured out a handle of strong rum right into the tank.

Hey, we pull off plenty.

It just so happens that every other race is trying to do the exact same thing, and sometimes the results get... mixed.

And we are not a terrorist organization. We just want to change the universe so we can have sex with all of it safely, and nobody eats babies.

The rep we got as a result of the incident on Tulani prime was NOT our fault. We did not make alterations to make human semen addictive. We just made it taste good.

The Phyrrin counterpart to our organization were the ones who did that. They wanted the Tulani to be addicted to the implantation of their eggs, because their bodies do have an equivalent to partriarchal sacks.

It just turned out that the two viruses sort of... mixed. That's all.

Now the Tulani race is addicted to human semen. This is NOT our fault.

On the plus side, our virus did have the unintended side effect of making Phyrrin eggs lethal to the Tulani, so they can't be used to breed more egg-laying horrors.

>> No.18515396

Pretty sure Tulani are pretty much socially expected to be in a relationship their whole life.

Don't know, really. Only times I've met one of the big guys has been on the different ends of rifles.

I don't think that they would actually practice any honor-revenge things on a bloody commercial ship, though. You're on the same bankroll and I haven't ever actually met a stupid kazaal. All that I've nailed have been caught in close range ambushes. It's rather counter intuitive from human perspective to attack something that's fucking twice your size at smallest, but once you get past that fear, it's easy.

Didn't figure this out on my own, btw. One of my previous bosses was Kazaal himself and was actually some kind of grappling champ back on his home. Talk about zen in fighting. If they lose their cool they become easier to throw thanks to the gas.

I hate to break it to you, but what we consider secondary sex characteristics are not the same in Tulani.

What you've seen are young adult Tulani. Young adult Tulani look a lot like male humans. They are bigger, stronger, and more suited to physical tasks.

Once they grow older, their hips widen, they grow things which look like breasts but are DEFINITELY NOT (don't ask, for the love of god DO NOT ASK what they are for, you'll never want to bang a Tulani again) and they get smaller and thinner.

Male Tulani look just like Female Tulani, but their genitals are internal. If you can't smell the pheromones (which humans can't), you literally CANNOT tell the difference, even if they're naked.

If they're desperate for a relationship, you can even have sex with them and not know that they're male.

And the whole "addictive semen" thing, even if they don't ingest any, still has its influence. They CAN smell your pheromones, and whether or not they let on about it, they REALLY like humans. Even just being around us is mildly Euphoric.

So to summarize: They're all basically identical, you never know if one is a dude, and both males and females want to bang you.

You couldn't make this shit up. Fucking aliens, man.

This causes most humans to seek to avoid us out of primal tribal impulses.
Yet some humans, such as yours, seem to find the *Pulsing* process fascinating, as well as our other properties arising from our origins in *Old Space*.

And wishe our girls wouldn't talk all the time about plumting and ceaving. With her I can talk about things I could discuss only with male Eche'khs)

But I got reassigned and I could do nothing against it. I've tried to talk with higher-ups but eventually I've landed here, in this absolute shithole planet, Karenda.
I hate this place. It's basically a death world, on an early stage of colonisation, currently mostly inhabited by... I don't know, your closest equivalent would be military. Not only everything tries to kill us, but also FTL communication is so limited I can chat with her only by writing.
I don't know anymore what should I do.

I told her about my ex and she wants to help me get revenge. Well, not in the "Kill her and chop her up" way, but the "Flaunt us in front of her" way. She went and made us reservations at the restaurant where she works (pretty high-class place, actually.

That's a common myth. We're the most varied among the non-shapeshifters, in certain ways.

The Thing species, for instance, can take any form, memory, or ideological stance. Often, branches of the same individual can take different viewpoints on the same issue.

Humans are much less tolerant than other species in some areas, and more in others. Generally, the tolerances regard what is safe.

For instance, humans have been at war with the Arachnid race almost since first contact was made. Why? Because they resemble Earth spiders.

In spite of the fact that the Arachnids are herbovores, generally nice guys, and just happen to be from a planet where everything has eight legs and eyes.

Humans ALWAYS respond to seeing them with "KILL IT WITH FIRE!" It's rather annoying, actually.

The flip side of this is that humans also resemble some small species of poisonous, voracious predators on other worlds. Those species that evolved on those worlds are generally not fond of humanity, either.

Alright, in a nutshell you move your mind to a computer, and remotely control cloned and augmented or robot bodies of any shape and size. Besides eliminating the possibility of biological death by aging, it also provides insurance against accidental death by explosion, laser, bullet or black hole. You connect with the bodies through an anslem quantum-entagled subspace link. It works over any distance, and is impossible to neutralize or hack without direct access to the computing substrate. And there are all sorts of security measures built in to prevent tampering, I go with the self-destruct option on most of mine.

If you're interested, there is a minor neural web augment that can give you a taste of remote-body control. It degrades into your body after a few weeks, and uses the same kind of quantum link to a fairly primitive loan-body. It's fairly affordable if you're considering the Change. I can explain more if you want, drop me a line at ref code 778683554826719342167.87. I was on the dev team.

Humans quarrel a lot among themselves, but they have this thing where they fear social stigmatization. Most will act within the norms of behavior - set by alpha males - so long as they're being observed directly. This isn't is bad as it sounds: humans tend to think of these social mores as just/right by virtue of being popular.

>Why would they attempt to treat us as Humans when we are so clearly *Alien*?

Humans have a pretty fucking strong sense of empathy. Ever wonder why so many uplifts come from Terra? Human empathy pushed them to it. It follows that they'd think of you as one of them, and this can lead to some seriously hurt feelings when they just CANNOT understand what you're thinking.

>although they harbor aberrant individuals who seem to prefer the *Explorer* behavior patterns.

Humans come from a pretty violent branch of life. They'll kill you and beg forgiveness for it afterwards, as a Vexian once put it. And for some reason they don't see any contridiction in this.

Those things are just dramatizations. Most civilized asteroid mining is done by autominer and self-replicating robots. It's not worth the liability to send sentients down for anything less than neutronium, and you don't get that stuff from asteroids. Most modern 'roiding is done from a control booth or through subspace link.

This is of course not true on some of the lowtech sectors. A few of them still use slave labour, they have some kind of cultural or religious objection to bots.

Not as much as the yaoins, but yeah, the violence helps solve most of our problems, and for the ones it can't (generally marital) sex deals with that part.

For instance, hot female all over you, you aren't going to want to pop her head off screaming blood for the blood god like in the new virtual reality game Warhammer 80K, you are going to want to make love to her like Cooking Moma: MILFS on Patrol 8.

Apparently, because of specific gravitic effects from the Kregar Black Hole Cluser, any planet in Arcturus Arm within 4-500 light years from the galactic rim has a large chance of having species develop that are enormous by standard Earth metrics. Both the Gharn and Zarivar are from that sector, so they are recognizing familiar cultural imagery. The Tulani were the race that made First Contact with both of them, and so thy might recognize it as well.

Funnily enough all examples of Gargants (technical term) on those worlds are herbivores and incredible docile. Some are even domesticated on Ghar. It's the strange alienness combined with familiarity that makes Gharns go Gaga for Godzilla.

Such 'clean up' of *Breeder* machines in modern times is frequently accomplished by Davonian contractors employing synchronized *Pulsing* techniques to render the machines ineffective through entropic breakdown.

Do you wanna know why humans want to have sex with you and think of you like one of them?

Humans loathe to be alone. I mean, we're all (mostly) social species, that's natural, but with humans it seems incredibly pronounced. Humans used to use isolation from all other humans as a method of punishment for criminals. It was the worst thing they could think of short of doing physical violence upon you. It might just be me, but I think the humans developed mass long-range communication so highly and quickly because it enables them more social contact.

They are incredibly heavily regulated. I have fourteen subprocesses running at all times which monitor any and all anomalies in all VNMs which I have responsibility for. I'm required to transmit a keep-alive signal at all times to both the VNs, and the Office of Nanotech Control at GalCiv HQ. If the signal cuts out, all bots based on that frequency shut down and await retrieval. If the signal to GalCiv shuts down without notice, I'm subject to heavy fines, unless it was to prevent a grey-goo scenario. And I'm required to prove necessity.

They keep a very strict leash on it. They'd have to, LunaLab was the third major outbreak, the first is still expunged from the public records, but they make you watch the recordings before signing the liability arrangement.

Uploading in human culture is not nearly as commonplace as you think it is. First, there's the actual cost of uploading, which already locks out a large percentage of the populace. Plus, there's also the cost of the spare bodies, WHICH ARE NOT CHEAP. Sure, people always talk about how spares can be cheap and affordable, but those are cheap-quality knockoffs that will barely last a few months before breaking down.

And connection ability? Most uploaders don't venture beyond their own star system because they still use conventional wireless control signals. Those quantum entaglers everybody talks about cost as much as an Ackbar-class cruiser.

In short, the only people who have "true" immortality are the guys rich enough to afford it, or the guys who invented and run the system.

That was the last time military combat trained personal was deployed against a viable grey goo.

and since then only three times agaisnt VNs in large numbers.

In human space most grey goo incidents are either subcontracted to a specialist firm or a military or civilian specialist outfit. And rogue VN machines are set bounty on for taking or reasserting control wit the ones gaining control being allowed to keep them , if they qualify for self replicating industrial licence.

Military combat personal are only used as escort for specialists and technicians now. we learned from mistakes, at least in this case.

Its one of the reason Human manufacturing companies have such a high output, and why you see so many human workers in non manufacturing jobs or alien companies unless they have a degree or specialist training.

regarding the combat vets in this thread with psychological issues.
Various human exploration companies as well as resource exploitation companies hire a lot of security personal, who are given a very generous medical and social support service and at the same time get them in the best protective gear ATM. sometimes even better than standard millspec.

Any stereotyping of such employed of having a predisposition of solving disputes with aliens with lead pipe to alien soft parts are pure defamatory remarks with no basis in fact.

That depends on polity. Some polities like cuba have state subsidized public uploads for all lifelong taxpaying citizens.

And if the upload is active or passive memory dump, and if you use the upload only for transfer and what kind of body us use. you could use a anatomic correct and full human sensory android as the main and primary backup like most russians do. Who by the way along with the former 20th century communist block have the highest rate of uploads , transhuman and posthuman citizens - the first due to being embeded in state guaranteed medical care , the second subsidized and the third , well rich fucks and cultural one-upmanship.

Of course since they dont go for cultural adaptation of their hardware, east block upload and morphs and more for mass production makes them less attractive on the larger markets not directly affiliated with former east block countries.

Go to Sachsenstieg. the joint German Romanian colony. the Germans are more independent from Berlin and the Romanians still consider themselves a Romanian district.
and see the difference. most germans have android butlers , while in romanian areas you'll see like, 20% in robotic bodies and roboservants being more of the disk drone configuration , to avoid insult.

And of course the lack of barring from public office in former eastblock nations to uploads and transhumans, due to the casual dismissal and acceptance of the Watergate 2.0 incident. they expect it to happen.

Of course then there are the asian countries, and the Japanese... who are a rather complicated case from this POV...

unless some company gets the qualification for combat vet reintegration, in which case they can hire full contact troopers, shelter them from potential unwanted trigger situations and put them to societies good use.

its usually exploration and security concerns that use them in high numbers, and usually dispersed in general purpose teams as long as the risk of encountering a Class 1 allied entity is remote.
Thus any Class 1 threat is considered hostile by default.

such deployments usually have warning beacons.

contact shock troopers are humans that get modified to such extent that they can survive all possible enviroments with their equipment and have the firepower to overcome any possible threats. They are designed to be one hit wonders, organic bombs. They are sent first to get a contact with the unknown enemy and to gather information on how to kill it. After the optimum "poison" has been established, the rest of the military can be send in. That way there's little to no loss of morale in the ranks of basic soldiers and there's a group of soldiers that can train the rest on how to kill their enemies.

Jesus, well, the last time contact vets were actually used in mass numbers as frontline troops was probably about fifty Terran years ago, during the Antium Blitz. The Antians thought it was a good idea to go and pillage a few human colonies, so we sent about 200,000 contact soldiers to their homeplanet. There's a reason why you don't see many Antians around anymore.

These were the guys who were always the first boots on the ground when we encountered a new, unknown hostile species. Tentacled space squids with teeth that can rip through titanium? Seven meter tall hulks of muscle and bone wielding starship level weaponry? Horrible space monsters from another dimension trying to avoid ours? These are the guys who meet them head on, and figure out the best way to kill them, without a single complaint. Anybody who's even remotely affiliated with them, or has seen their work, learns to fear and respect these guys.

As for age, it really varies. Typical life expectancy for a contact soldier in combat conditions is about six seconds, and casualty rates average at around 70% in prolonged campaigns. But the ones that survive, holy shit, you do not want to get on their bad side. At least a few of them are still original batch, which would make them almost two hundred Terran centuries old.

For your guy? Check how many battle stars he's got. Most contact vets have a way of marking them on their armor. One star for every hostile species encountered, so it would be a good measure of how old they are.

From what it sounds like, it looks like your friend stumbled on (or knew about?) that Antian camp. Even if there's barely a couple million of them left in the galaxy, they're still designated as Class 1 Threats.
