    22. Test Flight
      Spoiler:

            Let's not, However we WILL be thanking Skydiver yet again *Yes Sky, that'll never get old* as she has spent a considerable amount of time fixing this to the best of her abilities.

            Tomorrow night the second third of Contact Part 3 goes up, and thursday night the final part.

            As you'll notice, Season 2 Episodes already have names as i've already conceptualized them most are locked in, i might still change up a few. over my holiday's break i'll be conceptualizing Season 3-4, which is as far as this fic'll go.The "movie" is going to be most likely a story length(40-60k words) proper ending to this story.

                  Anyone else think Aragon is trying to take over with all these Dark Frontier threads. I bet if i come on tommorrow, five more will have spawned

                  BUT seriously, glad to hear your back on your feet after all the glitches Aragon, and thanks to Skydiver!

                  onto Contact part 3; is it me or are some races around, just around to talk too lonely heroes? Why can't you just have them go crazy and hallucinate or something? I'm sure thats never been done before .... .....

                  Oh, and i think someone's been playing WAY too much Halo, especially with Sheppard encountering a crashed spaceship (Weirdly theres a lot of those in Halo) and picking up a nice big gun. Before you know it, there will be energy swords and epic lag issues. ;p

                    LOL well it was all part of Skydivers efforts to give me my old posts back. Unfortunately it didn't work and i'm not sure exactly what she did for it to get split into 3 seperate parts

                    LOL well i AM hinting that the Ascended are up to something Admittedly we won't see too much of them. but there will be a few mentions of what's going on there. And Carter's already gone crazy and hallucinated in Grace remember?

                    LOL, the Halo reference was unavoidable.Any armor that has a virtual interface will undoubtedly be compared to the Mjolnir armor so i decided to meet it head on with a humourous aspect rather than try and skirt the issue. There are major differences between the armors and John's having way too much fun calling it Cortana

                    I'll assure that there won't be any energy swords, and the nice big gun WAS mentioned previously The suit will get explained in more detail later. Tihis chapter does take a bit of a wink and a nod from Halo, but there's still more to come

                    Glad you're enjoying this! next chapter up tonight

                          You always beat me to it Rudy

                          Yes, Contact Part 3, Second Third is now up.

                          Many thanks to Rudy Pena for his information on some military things, Alx and Lantean General for their beta (which was actually the last chapter) and TheIceMenace for proofreading. (I swear, she'd beat me silly with a grammar book if we ever met in real life)

                          The final part of this arc goes up thursday night/friday morning. I hope y'all enjoy it
