The fic is on hiatus because the author is busy working for Bioware.Lets see... Earth is abandoned to a superior enemy with no hope of winning -Mass Effect 3. A Hive Mind created to end a war between machines and organics which has Gone Horribly Right and is corrected later - again Mass Effect 3. A low rank officer rallying the remaining fleets - check. A superweapon is prepared, and someone mentions that when the first nuclear bomb was made, there was a risk of it igniting the Earth's atmosphere - likewise. An Emperor wants to destroy everything for power and godhood, to wait until everything dies and is reborn - present in Star Wars: The Old Republic and strongly implied in the fic. Yeah, same author seems likely.
