Interesting story,keep it up.

Almost feels like a pony version of a david weber novel

This comment alone makes me want to read this fic.

207472 hahaha yea Ikr?

I'm getting a real 2001 vibe here. It's great. Tracking.

Good start. Anxiously awaiting the next chapter!

Cool concept, haven't really posted enough yet for me to decide how to rate this, though.

Ehh, as good as it is, everyone-is-dead fics really aren't my thing. Except for The Last Pony.


207472 Same here; 'course, it's Cereal, so I was gonna read it anyway.

I absolutely LOVE this. Science fiction has always been one of my most favorite genres, and to see it worked so brilliantly with MLP is incredible. I can't wait for more!

Can't wait to see where this goes. :rainbowwild:

I really enjoyed this -- a good mix of classic scifi and pony-style fantasy. I'll be keeping an eye on this one.

Really enjoyed this, looking forward to more!

This sounds... Intriguing. :applejackunsure:
I can't wait to see where you go with it.

I see one small problem. They intend to cause a star to go nova/supernova by injecting iron into the core. Nova proceed slowly in sunlike stars, and don't release vast amounts of radiation. So I'm guessing their aiming to use a very large star for a supernova. That would actually require enough iron to displace the entire solar core. The mere presence of iron does not interfere with energy-producing fusion, rather it is the lack of lesser fusible elements in the core. In every star existing today, there is a certain amount of heavy elements preexisting, simply due to the composition of the nebulae they are created from.

A star large enough to go supernova must have a core mass past the Chandraskar limit, about 1.5 solar masses. It would require an unthinkable amount of iron to tip the balance of something that massive by artificial means!

Sounds like someone's done the research. But really... how could you stop a star from producing fusion-- either cool it down or space out the hydrogen..? That's all I can think of and neither is sounds doable.

On a more fundamental level what are they trying to accomplish by blowing up the sun anyways? I didn't get that.

Interesting premise. I hope future chapters will expand more on the new alicorn they're apparently searching for and what happened back on Equestria that warranted this mission. The writing style is good, as I'd expect, and forgiving a somewhat slower opening, it caught my attention and kept it throughout. I haven't gotten a great impression of the characters so far, but I like what I have read, and I think the author packed a lot into the chapter considering its short length. Keep it up.


I'd be lying if I said I wasn't intrigued. Nice to see a Sci-Fi fic that has the whole Alien/2001 feel to it. Tracking! :pinkiehappy:

A good, promising story... Are you going to continue writing it, or it's a dead fic now?
