First to Rise

All Rights Reserved ©


The aliens came here for one thing, and one thing only.... Females. Humans believed they were the only intelligent life to exist... that it was impossible for another species to evolve in a way where they could prevail in something as great as space travel. humans believed they were supposed to be the most technologically advanced species and the alpha predators... They were wrong. The Xandisians evolved in ways humans never could have imagined, they are natural-born killers with phenomenal strength and agility. Their kind never went through the same devolution as humans, they never lost their natural instincts to hunt, kill, or breed. With their limitless potential and monstrous strength, they faced few threats and could survive almost any threat that befall their species, almost. After an incurable sickness washes over the planet of xanadis, the majority of the female, young and elderly, and vulnerable population is all but wiped out, leaving a small portion of the male population to face the threat of extinction. With no choice but to look to the stars for a means to save their kind from complete annihilation, the xandisians set out to find a race compatible with their own. after many years and countless failed expeditions, they finally find a species that matches their base DNA on a planet called Earth. The only issue now is how humans will react. (LTF -AU)

“{All ship systems functioning as normal}”


“{Proceeding with awakening protocol…}”


The lights within the room slowly glow brighter, illuminating the numerous pods lined up against the metal wall.

Each pod is made from a dark metallic smooth metal without seams or exposed rivets, in an oval shape standing upright in its own divot in the wall.

One pod amidst the endless row hisses as a seam appears upon its surface and steam is released from a vent underneath. The door to the pod slides back, as liquid spills out from inside, filtering down to a drainage system in the floor.

As the door opens a large humanoid figure inside can be seen, curled up in the fetal position with a clear bubble-like substance encasing it. The creature twitches as the substance gives way and tears open leaving the body to collapse onto the floor.

Hard ragged breathing echoes through the empty room as it slowly stirs awake due to the abrupt awakening. Its long tail is spiraled out across the floor with a metal blade attached to the end and its long claws twitch before scratching the cool metal surface of the ground.

The creature growls, baring its fangs before using its arms to push itself upright into a hunched over, sitting position on its hands and knees. One clawed hand moves to its head, coming in contact with the wet strands of black hair and curved horns decorated in silver metal clasps.

A female voice speaks up over the ship’s intercom making the creature flinch.

“Good morning commander… you’ve been in stasis for approximately 367 sols. You are the first to awaken from stasis and have been selected to appraise the ship’s newly discovered findings that best suit the species desired target.”

Looking up, its feral silver eyes scanned over the room, glancing over the giant window overlooking space.

Standing up, the figure subtly stretched its aching muscles as the row of armor-like spines running down its back flexed, before smoothing out back to their former position.

“Show me the findings…” his voice came out irritated and gruff.

A hologram screen appears before him showing various images of another humanoid species with many variations in physical appearance, And their native homeworld full of abnormal plants and animals.

His eyes watched intently as information came flooding in over numerous subjects involving the species including their traditions, weaponry of choice, their physical anatomy, and more.

Thousands upon thousands of videos and pictures were shown, nearly overwhelming the man as his tail flicked around behind him. Growling he swiped at the hologram with his arm making it disappear. “Enough!”

He grabbed his head again seemingly in pain from the flood of information. The ship’s Ai was silent, waiting for his next command.

“Do the diagnostics to estimate the compatibility rate.” He ordered.

The Ai chimed up, showing a new, and much smaller, hologram screen with alien symbols and a basic image of the other species’ anatomy. “I already have the results. A majority of the species has the potential of 78% compatibility with our own.”

He lowered his hand from his face to look over the results curiously. “...have they been tested? To see if the hypothesis is correct?”

“No.” Was the AI’s only response.

He paused for a moment and swiped away the screen before walking up to the giant glass window overlooking the planet below.

He stared at it in deep thought.

“Wake the other leaders…” the ships Ai chimed and several pods down the row behind him hissed as they started to open, leaking fluids everywhere..

“Affirmative, commencing awakening protocol.”

His tail curled with a new sense of excitement at the promising aspect of a new, compatible species.

Several thuds behind him drew his gaze away from the scene of the blue and green planet as multiple body’s collapsed onto the floor after being released from their stasis pods.

He quickly turned his attention back to the planetary mass before him tilting his head to the side and crossing his arms over his chest.

“Computer, What is this celestial body called?”

The Ai chimed once more in response to the question.
