Poetry fishbowl - military SF


Hup two, folks, you know the drill -- go feed the fish with prompts about military SF! Mine for this month are:

What happens when a military mission turns into a first-contact situation?

Something about the frightened spaceships.

Rescue missions.

"The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."

Dealing with PTSD when home and relative safety are millions of miles away.

Tropes in military SF, like the commander who by skill and luck (or luck and skill) overcomes all odds, over and over again.
