space for giants

Also something about the Reapers always bothered me. They harvested organic and synthetic civilizations to preserve them lest they succumb to a war between each other. Ok.

But then why would the Reapers store the collective consciousnesses of those civilizations on their warships? On the thing that initiates the harvest? I mean, Reapers are tough but not indestructible. The Leviathin of Dis proves that even ancient civilizations could destroy a Reaper capital ship. That’s hundred of thousands of stored consciousnesses lost. Dozens of civilized species. The whole point of preservation is lost.

The Reaper cycles have been going on for a billion years. Thousands of cycles. How many Reapers were destroyed in the harvest? How many species they sought to conserve were lost forever?

Sorry Reapers but you guys had a shitty conservation strategy if your idea of protecting culture was strapping said culture to a giant space cephalopod that barfed lasers

so apparently femshep’s official height is 5′3″, and garrus’ is 7′. that’s a height difference of a whopping 21 inches. I’m honestly so disappointed that this isn’t addressed in-game because you just know he’d absolutely rip the piss out of her for it 

“hey shep I’m pretty sure alliance regulations say that anyone under 5′7″ has to use a booster seat in the mako…” 

garrus…kiss ur tiny angry girlfriend before she decks you…

The OUREA Christian Grajewski

“317 years after human kind’s extinction, the OUREA reaches her final destination, the planet Aion. Loaded with the genetic samples and the memory of a billion people and the equipment to build a new world. Theia the artificial intelligence has the task to rebuild human society…“

Imagine an entire Star Trek show about a group of people who aren’t members of the bridge crew or one of the higher ups, and each week it’s them trying to do their job while crazy shit happens that they don’t really understand, like:

  • They get an announcement from their superior officers that goes “You may notice a child walking around the ship in a captain’s uniform. That is in fact the captain and is to be treated the same as always. We’re quickly working on a solution.”
  • A transporter mishaps causes the chief engineer to turn into a vulcan. They try not to stare at the ears, and move on.
  • Shots of them reacting to superior officers running through the background in the midsts of a red alert that they don’t know what it’s in response to.
  • “Did you hear the away team landed on planet that had five years pass before they got them back?” “Man, I’m glad I got skipped over for that assignment.”
  • Trying to figure out if the rumor that their commander got kidnapped by an alien race that considers them their god is true or just something made up by a bridge crewman to mess with them.
  • Popping in and out of existence and taking bets on which All Powerful race it is that’s doing it and why.
  • anytime Weird Shit happens on the ship it’s never explained. why are there chickens in the Jeffrey Tubes? why does the captain have a double? why did the chief medical examiner briefly turn homicidal? they don’t know and neither do you.
  • Each episode ends with them pouring one out for the crewmembers who died that week.
  • [Back at the garrison, one year ago]
  • Keith: *staring at Lance*
  • Shiro: Just go talk to him already, you're going to have to sooner or later.
  • Keith: No I won't. It's not like we're going to be trapped in space together on a giant castle ship, forced to be in close proximity at all times and work together to save the universe.
  • [Now]
  • Allura: You will all be living on my castle ship in close proximity at all times, while working together to save the universe!
  • Keith: f uck
