Default Ratava, or how the Na'vi landed on Earth

Imagine the movie happened something like 20,000 years later:

The Na'vi would have developed themselves, so just imagine that they lost their connection to Eywa and eventually turned up building large metropolis, until they'd reached a similar state to 2154 Earth. In their search for new energies they found a rare deposit of Un'obtaníum on a planet orbiting the Sun called Earth. When they arrive, they find that a strange species of humanoids called Humans live in a Neolithic stage since their civilization collapsed several millenia ago. They're connected to a goddess called Gaia...

...Ratava

Nice.

So, how soon can we expect Ratava to start screening in Pandoran theatres?

Why is that they automatically have to end up like humans in the Avatar universe did. And to tell you the truth given Earth's condition in the movie humans are either already extinct by the 2nd film or are in the process of becoming extinct in the 2nd film.

However in an alternate universe they could have been attacked by hostile aliens early on and like the Vong in Star Wars with the help of Eywa build ships to go out and destroy their alien tormentors and then set out on a crusade to conquer and place all sentients under the guidance of Eywa. and as such they arrive to Earth at some point either perhaps 100 years in the past or something like that. They conquer and subdue the planet and it's inhabitants and at some point they rebel as all people that long for freedom inevitably will.

I wrote similarly about this before, only still assuming we had the same technology we possess today:

That'd be a much different situation, but what if they had the power to disrupt all our communications? To cause some sort of focused EMP attack that put all our tech weapons out of action. We'd be almost as helpless as the Na'vi, and what if we had something they needed? Like... maybe some precious metal or mineral that only existed here would be priceless to them? Maybe... gold was a perfect item for their use on their planet? (It can't be mixed with anything; can't be flawed; it's plausible).

Anyway, they pillage our cities and "sacred" (or valuable) locations in search for this item. What would we revert to? These new... creatures look like us. They seem to communicate with each other (like HNM has pointed out), but they have some sort of program that allows them to look like us and talk like us...

They are a strange group of blue aliens that are much taller and fiercer than us. They don't seem to be able to breathe our atmosphere since the air pressure isn't "as dense as theirs" (according to one alien... we think he might be a scientist of their people).

I say we, as a society, must prevent any unnecessary destruction of our planet. Will that require war? Yes. What do we have to fight them with? Our underground experts are finding ways to put our weapons back in action to use against them. Will our petty guns and tanks work against their plasma rays and laser cannons? We don't know, but we've got to try something.


....And what if one of the aliens is peaceful? She has taken part in the program that allows her to resemble us humans. She wants to help us fight. She finds ways for us to break their defenses, find their weaknesses... She falls in love with a man of great influence over a particular country. What does her human form look like?

That's cool but the Na'vi should have no problem breathing Earth's current atmosphere unless they are at really high altitude.

I like the idea of flipping things around and have the Na'vi as the bad guys.

Actually, I've been noticing there are a lot of new threads that've been popping up in the last few hours. More threads than normal, I mean.

...And they all happen to be threads I take interest in... which doesn't happen too often with me.

Again I understand you not liking this for a sequel as it would not make sense but why do you hate the idea all together? Why would it be so terrible for the idea to be explored in a fanfic or an RP? Just curious. I mean we have the so called mirrorverse in Trek where everything is upside down and instead of the Federation you have an evil Terran empire. why can't the same thing happen in an AU to the Na'vi?

I'm not saying it can't be written, it's just not something I'd say would ever happen, or something I'd enjoy reading.

Anyway, Gaia != Eywa. There is no network on Earth.

Oh well, we get creative after midnight with the lack of sleep.
