Military Science Fiction quotes by P.J. Fox
#11. I," he said, a faint note of derision in his voice, "am the least favored scion of our ruling house, House Mara Sant." He was from Brontes, then. Which might explain the eyes…she thought again of certain differences, and suppressed a shudder. "I am a Prince of the Blood," he continued, sounding both embittered and proud, "third in line for the Dragon Throne, and grand nephew to the Emperor. Owing to a…political dispute, I am now also an exile. Presented with a choice between resigning my commission in the na-vy and leaving to become governor of a mining planet and staying to face my uncle's as-sassins…." He shrugged slightly, as if the choice were of no consequence.
"A…political dispute?"
"I gambled," he said bluntly. "I lost."
"You seem…sanguine," she remarked, surprise blunting the instinct to guard her tongue.
"He shouldn't have let me live."
That anyone could discuss their own murder with such cold calculation horrified her. He horrified her. She chewed her lip, digesting all that he'd told her: not merely a naval officer, but a prince - and a maverick one at that. She wondered what he could have done.
"So you see," he finished, "I'm no more free than you." He laughed, then, but without humor. "We can be prisoners together. I am en route to a wretched planet called Tarsonis to assume governorship and as you have no other, more pressing engagement, you are coming with me. #Quote by P.J. Fox
Military Science Fiction quotes by Jerry Pournelle

"Admiral Solovy, are you wearing a shit-eating grin because we won here today, or is there something else I should know?"

"There's something else you should know. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Military Science Fiction quotes by Amy J. Murphy
#14. In that moment, she hated his quiet patient tone, hated the stench of the incense, and hated the beauteous pity painted on the faces of the women on the walls. Their expressions contained serene understanding; their eyes seemed able to peer into her soul. She found their forgiveness suffocating. And above all, she hated the tiny niggling thing in her that wanted to know more. #Quote by Amy J. Murphy
Military Science Fiction quotes by Henry V. O'Neil

Military Science Fiction quotes by Henry V. O'Neil

He felt warm liquid all over his left thigh and wondered if he'd peed himself, it didn't matter, none of it mattered, the stars were out in the blackness overhead and that was where he was going. #Quote by Henry V. O'Neil
Military Science Fiction quotes by Dayton Ward
#17. Unbreakable is a little bit Starship Troopers and a little bit Esmay Suiza, with a dash of Firefly for flavor. W. C.

#23. Jack Campbell's dazzling new series is military science fiction at its best. Not only does he tell a yarn of great adventure and action, but he also develops the characters with satisfying depth. I thoroughly enjoyed this rip-roaring read, and I can hardly wait for the next book. #Quote by Catherine Asaro
Military Science Fiction quotes by Jack Campbell
#24. That's the difference between good military commanders and good politicians, John Geary. You've shown me that a good military commander spends the lives of their people reluctantly and with regret, but does spend them when necessary. The good politician does the same thing with principles. There aren't any fine burials for sacrificed principles, though. #Quote by Jack Campbell
Military Science Fiction quotes by Henry V. O'Neil

Military Science Fiction quotes by G.S. Jennsen
#27. The Artificial's speech pattern was an idiosyncratic mix of awkward and colloquial. It was unexpectedly endearing. "I just have good instincts. Mostly I love being in space."

But you are not 'in' space. You are in your starship and your starship is in space. It is not so different than being on a planet.

"Oh, Valkyrie, you have no idea."

Tell me then. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Military Science Fiction quotes by Trevor Alan Foris

Military Science Fiction quotes by George Takei
#30. Science fiction is more than just our collective dreams for a human race that reaches to the stars. In many ways, the dreams of yesterday are becoming the realities of today and the path for tomorrow. #Quote by George Takei
Military Science Fiction quotes by Dew Platt
#31. Yeye shifted in her seat as Roma stared down at her angrily. "There are inter-realm laws I must abide by, that the soul must abide by as well when it comes to an appointed manifestation. Whoever was in the world before can not go into the new world. That identity must be forsaken. It must - "
"Forsaken or forgotten?" Roma barked.
"Forsaken," Yeye answered. "Unless you're putting this soul into a blank state like that of a child, it can not be forgotten. It has to be forsaken. That's the rule or you get no soul."
"So you're telling me that this soul will remember but will never be able to be that person it was?" Roma asked.
"I'm telling you a new memory must be formed with absolutely no reference to the previous."
"What the freak is that?" Roma asked, visibly agitated. "You can form new memories while holding on to preexisting ones."
Yeye stood. "Yes Roma, you're right. But you can also form new memories while you are unable to access the previous ones."
"Such it would have a drive that belongs to it but would never be able to access or be forbidden to access it?" Roma asked.
Yeye's voice was low. "I'm afraid that's the way it is going to have to be."
Roma shook his head vehemently. "Exactly which way is that Yeye. Exactly which way is that in common terms?"
Yeye spoke in her most resolute tone yet. "You will never be able to know whether or not this soul is Mara."
Roma gained silence, breathing in and out rapidl #Quote by Dew Platt
Military Science Fiction quotes by Ray Bradbury
#32. The rockets set the bony meadows afire, turned rock to lava, turned wood to charcoal, transmuted water to steam, made sand and silica into green glass which lay like shattered mirrors reflecting the invasion, all about. The rockets came like drums, beating in the night. The rockets came like locusts, swarming and settling in blooms of rosy smoke. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Military Science Fiction quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#33. As a youngster, I read of Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon. As a student, I wrote English reports on science fiction. And as a fighter pilot, I observed the selection of the Mercury astronauts. All this was fascinating, but I really didn't think I would ever be a part of it. It was only when my good friend Ed White was selected as a Gemini astronaut that I decided to join NASA as part of the Apollo program. #Quote by Buzz Aldrin
Military Science Fiction quotes by G.S. Jennsen
#34. He steadied himself by resting one palm on her thigh and the other on the armrest, and rose to his knees. "I'll be damned."

"Possibly. But not today, I think. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Military Science Fiction quotes by Ray Bradbury
#35. There's a lot of crap out there. Most of the science fiction films alone are abominations, you know. They're mindless. So you can't learn from those kinds of films. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Military Science Fiction quotes by Poul Anderson
#36. Heaven is not as narrowly literal-minded as hell. #Quote by Poul Anderson
Military Science Fiction quotes by James S.A. Corey
#37. If we accept the premise that we're always wrong, it really removes the incentive to spend a lot of time trying to make good guesses because even the good guesses turn out to be wrong. So, make plausible guesses ... and tell a good story. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Military Science Fiction quotes by Dew Platt
#38. With biting solemnity he spoke. "What are you holding on to as Mara? Why are you holding on to what does not exist and was once known? Why not let her be dusts to the winds of Teracia, insignificant in the eyes of what Atheists believe?"
Teracia was home to the American Spiritualist headquarters and a very large expanse of forestry. Roma, to keep Mara's last wishes had visited Teracia, against his Atheist believes, to spread her ashes so her soul may roam free.
What soared through Roma was more sadness than anger in the moment. But the anger was enough to push him head first into Retina. "How dare you? You stupid son of a bitch…Ahh!"
The force that took Roma forward took them over the compliant material that was the railing and they became subject to gravity. The impact resisting, antigravity flooring broke the majority of their fall.
And as Roma traveled the approximately fifteen inches resistance flight back in the air, "I'll kill you," he told Retina.
While Retina was silently thanking Dr. Hunter, a QueXtgen scientist who had just saved their lives without knowing it, for the scientific design of the house, "I'll kill you…" Roma said as his body touched the floor, before losing consciousness. #Quote by Dew Platt
Military Science Fiction quotes by G.S. Jennsen
#39. He had seen many criminals in his years in Division. Dangerous men and even more dangerous women. Small-time hucksters and savvy crime lords. Spies, gangsters, assassins, insurgents and wannabe-revolutionaries. True believers and soulless mercs willing to kill children for the right price. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Military Science Fiction quotes by Orson Scott Card
#40. Once you realize that power will always end up with the sort of people who crave it, I think that there are worse people who could have it than Peter. #Quote by Orson Scott Card

Military Science Fiction quotes by Rebecca West
#44. Before a war military science seems a real science, like astronomy; but after a war it seems more like astrology. #Quote by Rebecca West
Military Science Fiction quotes by Usman W. Chohan
#45. What is Science Fiction? It is the absence of governance and political arrangements in worlds where advanced technology marches onwards. Petty politics and primal instincts continue to dominate while scientific advancement continues. This is our problem today as well: our brightest minds devote themselves to science but shun governance and politics. So as in each catastrophe conjured and contemplated in science fiction, we run the risk of cosmic destruction, lest our greatest minds turn to resolving the outstanding problems of politics and governance first. #Quote by Usman W. Chohan

Military Science Fiction quotes by Alan Moore
#48. ...She wasn't anyone special. She wasn't that brave, that clever or that strong. She was just somebody that felt cramped by the confines of her life. She was just somebody who had to get out. And she did it! She went out past Vega, out past Moulquet and Lambard! She saw places that aren't even there anymore! And do you know what she said? Her most famous quotation? "Anybody could have done it #Quote by Alan Moore
Military Science Fiction quotes by Jamie Clayton

Military Science Fiction quotes by Annalee Newitz
#50. You've probably heard the stories about how io9 got its name. And maybe you know that io9 co-founder Charlie Jane Anders and I were inspired by Kathy Keeton, whose groundbreaking magazine 'Omni' combined coverage of real science with science fiction. But what you probably don't know is how unlikely it was that io9 ever succeeded at all. #Quote by Annalee Newitz
Military Science Fiction quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
#51. It would not do to be Lord of a universe inhabited solely by serfs. #Quote by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Military Science Fiction quotes by Saul Bellow
#52. Because he let the entire world press upon him. For instance? Well, for instance, what it means to be a man. In a city. In a century. In transition. In a mass. Transformed by science. Under organized power. Subject to tremendous controls. In a condition caused by mechanization. After the late failure of radical hopes. In a society that was no community and devalued the person.Owing to the multiplied power of numbers which made the self negligible. Which spent military billions against foreign enemies but would not pay for order at home. Which permitted savagery and barbarism in its own great cities. At the same time, the pressure of human millions who have discovered what concerted efforts and thoughts can do. #Quote by Saul Bellow
Military Science Fiction quotes by Orson Scott Card
#53. At some point, every science fiction and fantasy story must challenge the reader's experience and learning. That's much of the reason why the genre is so open to experimentation and innovation that other genres reject
strangeness is our bread and butter. Spread it thick or slice it thin, it's still our staff of life. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Military Science Fiction quotes by Edmund Crispin

Military Science Fiction quotes by Yahtzee Croshaw
#57. I realized that the job of a hero is not to save the galaxy, or rescue princesses, or slay all the dragons. That may be part of it, but in the end, a hero only has one job, and that's to make himself unnecessary. #Quote by Yahtzee Croshaw
Military Science Fiction quotes by Frederik Pohl
#58. I let myself flop - so gently, so slowly - into my one real chair and tried to make myself understand that I was on the doorstep of the universe. #Quote by Frederik Pohl

#61. Coordinates streamed into her mind while she yanked on her environment suit, foregoing every safety check she'd ever learned.

'Alex, we will try to help him together, but it is far too dangerous - '

She grabbed the module she used to access the circuitry of the ship, bypassed Valkyrie and fired up the Caeles Prism.

'Alex - '

She opened a wormhole in the middle of the cabin, set its exit point at the coordinates Valkyrie had provided, and ran through it. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
