Dalek IX


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...

What's this? Sins of a Solar Empire meets My Little Pony? You have my attention... :moustache:

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.

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:

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.

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:


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...

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.


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...


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.

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:


: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?


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

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

Will the new classes of ships in rebellion i.e. titans and corvettes be seen at some point? I wouldn't try to add the new dial factions, but the super ships would be awesome.
