    Just like real resurrections, only you save money....and maybe new body works a little differently....you'll get used to the limp! And the droopy eye! And the random vestigial person growing out of your chest!

    Sure, but the church isn't exactly super involved in those are they?

    They also have bootleg church. Or maybe even several of them.

    Actually, Shas (or a splinter thereof) joining with humanity was possible up until some events in Paradiso. Where the Humans dropped a rock on a Shas genetic-material repository (due to the massive defenses around it, the Humans thought it was a command-and-control site).

    Ever since, the relationship has been "you-killed-my-children" levels of no quarter.


    The Church does not control the resurrection equipment.

    It doesn't really matter what Humans did it.

    The Shasvastii blame all Humans for it.

    Well, it's hard to [want to] distinguish between the nuances of various groups of aliens after you see said aliens nuking orphanages without mercy or second thought.

    Correction accepted, thank you! I didn't remember who did it, or if it even said, and wasn't willing to spend the time to look it up.

    Pretty much.

    So I really can't see any Shas being willing to consider betraying the EI and siding with Humanity, even though there is explicitly one faction of Shas that is trying to keep itself separate from the Combined Army (to prevent the entire race from being consumed as soldiers in wars of the EI's making).

    Nuking the Shaviish was authorized by Coordinated Command, so all the human factions were in on it anyway.
    It was a pretty stupid decision on the part of Shas to put that thing in a warzone anyhow.

    Well, given that the thing that drives the Shas is an abject terror of having a single stellar catastrophe from wiping out the majority of their species ever again, I'm not surprised that they set up one of those genetic-materials-repositories on every planet, starting from First Arrival.

    That whole event is something I love about the setting, since there is so much nuance. Yu Jing made the strike, Coordinated Command approved, Shasvaastii deployed the asset into a warzone. Who knew what? How much responsibility does one have for an accident vs a premeditated action? From the same material you can assemble vastly different interpretations of who is to blame, each with supporting arguments!

    That is a great thing, and it is something I hope we see more of in the Uprising book.

    Iirc it was the Tohaa who gave them the intel, knowing what it was, and let the humans make the implication themselves in the hopes of avoiding any kind of peaceful contact between humans and and the CA.

    Yeah the Shasvastii asked for that. Yeah let's invade this planet in total surprise and kill loads of civilians, forcing them into an existential conflict! And then let's put our nursery in our operations base, which of course they cannot identify as a nursery because we're weird aliens! They nuked it? The bastards!
