Aliens learn about the Atomic Bomb.
"You use WHAT to BUILD A BOMB!?"
"cold war.....Cold War, are you shi* me?"
"YOUR SPECIES HAS HOW MANY OF THESE DOOMSDAY-DEVICES?"
"WHAT do you mean, they are STILL being Used ?!?"
Imagine a shattered Class 6 deathworlder learning about this.
Imagine how Havenworlders would react ^^ -- Anon Guest
[AN: Class 6 are purely theoretical, in an environment that would be hostile to most known means of evolution, so I'm going with Class 5]
"I wouldn't colonise that graveworld, if I were you," warned Zef. They were a hundred AU's from the Hephtous ship, and that was pretty much the minimum safe distance. They were Class 5 Deathworlders, but even those tough nuggets had their limits. "The previous inhabitants decided to nuke themselves into oblivion."
There was a few minutes' wait. In-system comms between non-friendlies took time. Zef did some sudoku to pass the time in-between basic ship and self maintenance.
A reply came back in broken Galstand and the Hephtous vessel had come to a relative stop. "We extending comms relays half distance, you doing same. Request clarification for meaning - nuke."
