Aliens

Cobra Slave (Cobra Rebellion Trilogy - Book 1)

Timothy Zahn continues the saga of the Cobras (technologically enhanced soldiers necessary in times of war to battle an alien menace, the Troft, who are too powerful for normal humans to defeat).  With the Troft conflict in a stalemate, a new threat comes to the Cobra worlds from a sister empire, the Dominion of Man. In an attempt to consolidate power, the Dominion of Man begins a campaign of enslavement.

Alien Invasion

In the past month, two very different movies featuring aliens have been released in theaters. Paul has a friendly alien stuck on Earth, while Battle: Los Angeles has a group of violent aliens trying to wipe out the human race. If I were to ever actually meet an alien, I hope it would be the friendly kind (think E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial), but I prefer watching movies about alien invasions. There is something exhilarating about the action scenes, the explosions and the fear of the unknown that makes alien invasion movies so watchable. Ultimately, these movies are about the human race triumphing over a frightening, and often technologically superior race.
