    Entry #25: Technical difficulties.

    To those of you following "Conquer the Stars", I'm very, very sorry, but I have some bad news for you.

    Starman Ghost has requested that I pull "Conquer the Stars" from FiMFiction.net, as he no longer wishes to be associated with "Not Alone".

    Obviously, I do not want to do this. I have told him so, as I believe that what I do with "Conquer the Stars" is my own business. He has accused me of leeching from what he has written, even though I have no more "leached" from him than I have from Hasbro or Stardock Entertainment or any other publisher on whose works I have written fanfiction.

    Today he has threatened me with publicly stating that I have used one of his characters -Evening Star- against his wishes. As this is true, I'll have no choice but to remove her, and replace her with one of my own creation. This will require extensive editing.

    Again, I do not want to do this. But it looks like I'll have to.

    Edit: I'd just like to say that if I see a large number of down-votes spring up on anything Starman Ghost-related, I'll be very unhappy.

    Edit2: You absolute fuckwits. Did you not hear a thing I said?

    Edit3: After reading the (sensible) comments you guys have provided, I have decided to do the following:

    I'll keep Evening Star as-is, and add a note saying that she is based on Starman's Evening Star. If there is additional trouble, I'll change her name to Morning Star, and make her coat exactly one and a half shades lighter.

    Entry #23: Ponies and lighstabers and Sith lords (Oh my!).

    Since I have no sense of shame, here's a plug for my latest fic: Rule of Two!

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

    The Republic is dead, and from the ashes the evil Galactic Empire has risen, with the malevolent Emperor Palpatine at its throne. Across the galaxy, Lord Darth Vader hunts down the last of the Jedi, aided by the ruthlessy efficient Stormtroopers of the 501st Legion and the Star Destroyers of the dreaded Death Squadron.

    The Conclave on Kessel has failed, and the Jedi have been slain. However, Darth Vader senses something deep within the abandoned mines...

    The idea came to me after looking at some examples of the "Evil person finds Dashie instead of the MLD protagonist". One of them was Darth "I find your lack of faith disturbing" Vader, and one of the comments said that Vader would actually be a pretty cool dad.

    Things escalated from there.

    Have a look if you wish, and don't forget to upvote. With some luck, we can get this on the featured box.

    As for my FoaSE readers, I'm writing chapter four as I type. Stay tuned!

    Entry #22: Switch.

    To my readers, I've got bad news, more bad news, and three pieces of good news.

    The bad news is that Starman Ghost has deleted Not Alone from FIMfiction, due to personal reasons. It will be missed.

    The other bad news is that as of this moment Conquer the Stars is on Hiatus untill I've written at least two more chapters of Friends of a Solar Empire.

    The good news is that I've got something special for you guys planned. The other good news is that Friends of a Solar Empire will be coming out of hiatus shortly starting with a round of me suffering from George Lucas Syndrome editing, and I'll be working on that along with the aforementioned proyect. Stay tuned!

    The other good news is that I've uploaded a PDF of Not Alone to mediafire. Here's the link.

    Entry #21: News.

    First of all, Conquer the Stars has nearly reached 700 favorites. This is a lot, and I'd like to thank all of you.

    (Fanart will be very much appreciated with electronic cookies.)

    Second, I'm currently occupied, so updates will take a lot of time. I apologize.

    Third, there are some major edits to be done. Formatting fixes, removal of Wall of Texts and other things. Friends of a Solar Empire will get the same treatment.

    Fourth, I've finally done something that I've never done before: I played DnD.

    Holy shit it's fun.

For little less than one thousand years, the species of Equestria had been a part of the Trade Order, sharing the millenium of peace of prosperity the humans had enjoyed.

Now, with the arrival of alien invaders and the return of ancient evils, that peace was been shattered. A people unused to war had to rediscover its ways and fight for their home. The Trader Emergency Coalition was born from this need.

Ten years have passed, and the sitation has improved to the point High Command has authorized a rotation of the forces, sending the weary first generation back to their homes, to rest and recover.

Meanwhile, a lavander unicorn mare who has never been on a planet is travelling to Equestria on behalf of her teacher...

Hmmm, This seems to be rather interesting. Looking forward to the Advent showing up eh?

Friends of a Solar Empire, here? :rainbowkiss: Yes! Tracked and rated! I can't wait till Starbuck and her squadron shows up. :rainbowdetermined2:

Spacebattles present: Friends of a Solar Empire. We could made Twilight Sparkle so moe it hurts and overshines Flyttershy. And WMD. At the same time.

#6 · 154w, 1d ago · · · Chapter One ·

My favourite RTS meets my favourite kids show... GENIUS!!!!

This is a great premise for story, well written and very enjoyable, I look forward to future chapters :pinkiesmile:

#7 · 154w, 1d ago · · · Chapter One ·

Okay, just fixed an awful formatting error in the second part.

When Sins of a Solar Empire came out, I was intrigued by it, but never ended up getting it (I'm pretty terrible at strategy games). This, however... I am VERY intrigued. Two things I would recommend changing: A superior officer wouldn't say "dismissed" to a group when he was the one leaving, and I would rewrite the line "But enough family history, let us get back to the present." as it really harms the immersion in my mind (and you do an impressive job of building it throughout the rest of the chapter). I do love your characterization, though- it seems you've kept the three ponies shown so far fairly true to their roots while adapting them for a much more advanced setting.

I think I'll be tracking this one. Keep up the good work!

>>65592 Then what is he supposed to say?

>>65939 Something more along the lines of "carry on". "Dismissed" would be more appropriate for sending everyone back to their posts (or at least away from the gathering).

Ah, an additional bit there at the end. Rather nice. And like before, I wanna hug Twilight. You've got everyone in-character, and it's a great read to boot.

This chapter was great, and it couldn't have come out on a better day, CHRISTMAS :pinkiehappy: or Hearth's Warming Eve for those readers currently in Equestria :rainbowlaugh:

Funny part is that picture is a real achievement in the game.

I'm autotracking this. Don't disappoint me and make me notautotrack this.

Autotrack was well earned. :heart:

Finally...someone manages to combine space and ponies without looking like a total foal :rainbowlaugh:

>>86478 Yeah... it's a stopgap until I can get a proper image of sufficient epicness-ness-ness.

Still hillarious, though.

>>86664 Combining ponies and Trader Humans was surprisingly easy, and since first contact happened over 900 years ago, most of the nasty stuff that would've filled up the story has already been resolved.

Rebellion is going to be an absolute clusterf***k, though.

>>86671  eh it won't be that bad.... ( NMM comes back and leads a force against the Equestria and by proxy the TEC)

>>86704 Actually, it's going to be worse.

A lot worse.

>>86706

Oh Celestia. Jesus. Insert deity. LAZORS SPAMZ . now gimme moar? How long you think it'll take?

>>86723 I have no clue :derpytongue2: I'm also working on another fic at the same time as this one, and I switch between them.

And why have LAZOR SPAM when you have MOAR DAKKA, nukes-a-plenty, and "Holy shit that's a lot of Novalith cannons!"?

Oh... Based on my limited knowledge of Sins of a Solar Empire, I think I know where this is going... At least in part.

Especially with the latest log.

This should be interesting.


I have no idea what the crossover is but... -best human/pony sci-fi fic ever!-!!!

Wooooooooooooooooooo sins of a solar empire crosover yayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayay

The anima are restless.

Loving this fic so far, very high quality writing and nice long chapters with in character mares.

SOSE Crossover with MLP?!:pinkiehappy:

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

I know have the urge to continue that game of mine....

I want to see some super ship with a sort of super laser/magic cannon.

That's a wish though. Otherwise, This. Is. Awesome! As someone who loves SoaSE enough to help with two mods for it, I'm excited to find something like this!

Orbital Friendship Cannon! :pinkiehappy:

It could replace the Novalith. :pinkiecrazy:

I see you made it to EQD.

Nicely done.

Still working on your image...sorry it's taking so long...

>>86706

So, am I right in saying that NMM is going to wind up leading the Advent? :pinkiegasp:

>>109892 :pinkiecrazy:TEEHEEHYAHAHAHAHAHA!:pinkiecrazy:

I'm going to aim for epic. With luck I just might hit it.

>>64783

Erm, Wrong sci-fi... You are thinking of Battlestar Galactica.

@ the author: This is going really well so far. I like your style, and I just might re-install sins today now...

>>64783

Nevermind.... I just read that bit in chapter 2....

Perhaps you could include some links to screenshots of the ships ? So we can see an actual view of an Akkan or a Kol Battlecruiser, since you're not describing them much. You can see what I mean in this story about other spaceships. :rainbowdetermined2:

Anyway, have some stars and a track ! The inclusion of humans weirded me out in the beginning, but why not ? It's working so far :moustache: !

Now to read chapter 2.

>>127428 If you want pictures and a description of the ships just go here and search them up http://sinsofasolarempire.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

@_@ I want this to update

The anima are restless. They demand MOAR!!!

Now hurry up before I shove a Novalith/Kostura (Or an Orbital Friendship Cannon :moustache:) up your six.  :pinkiecrazy:

I love this but for encouraging critique to add more description, to ships, surroundings, and feelings

No recent author comments... no blog posts...

I'll give it a week before I have to (sadly) declare the fic dead... :fluttercry:

Check out this thread instead: http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=210480

The author hangs out on Spacebattles most of the time, so it isn't that surprising that he hasn't posted anything here.

I'm looking at the chapter select part of the story and I'm thinking:

"Is this the one? Is this the one?"

There was one Sci-Fi pony story I found on FF.net that I loved yet I can't remember what it's called, nor can I find it again.

Here's to hoping!:pinkiesmile:

And now I feel like crying... in absolute joy!

I found it! I found it! I FOUND IT!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiehappy:

:rainbowkiss: So. Awesome. I'm loving it so far, and I hope that you'll post some more soon. Being a Sins player myself, I really appreciate the level of detail you put into phrases like "The mostly civilian-centered Argonev in orbit over Equestria was absolutely overrun by shuttles and other craft," or just the general terminology you used. It really immersed me, putting as much detail as you did where Sins was entirely lacking it. The part I love the most and hope I can apply to my own fictions is that you nailed the characters down, even going as far as making the Marza commander fit his in-game personality.

I salute you. Good luck to your future fics.

>>376443

Thanks! I have to say, I'm finding the worldbuilding both unbelievably fun and a cause of splitting headaches. It takes quite a bit of work, since the game has nothing on everything, but sitting back and reading the results and knowing that I made this world... it makes me smile, it really does.:pinkiehappy:

>>234115

:twilightblush:Yeah... There'll be a small revision when the next two chapters get uploaded. I love putting all those details into things, but sometimes I forget, and almost always in places that really need it.

For instance, can anyone here tell me what the bridge of the On to the Stars looks like?

*Plays SOSE With Equestrian Names*

Who else thinks that SOSE should have had some form of a campaign?

>>385361

On one hand, It having one would be awesome.:rainbowkiss:

On the other, it'd screw this fic over so bad it ain't funny.:twilightsheepish:

>find this story on fimfiction long after having read it on ff.n

>read comments, see author still commenting

>realize the story isn't dead

>feelsdamngoodbro.jpg

Can't wait for this to get started again. :yay:
