    [QUOTE=LeyK;60056321]True, though aliens being advanced is a wildcard because the could be dumb. But also in retrospect, in a war, your country/faction could lose then no cryogen freezing, well if domination and/or slavery happens

    I imagine there would have to be at least some intelligent aliens in the species who would have been able to design intergalactic travel, unless the aliens are simply wild beasts who happen to have the ability to fly through space as it is or has become their natural habitat, in which case, I imagine if they decided to settle on earth then you'd have the same problem, most likely even worse as with zombies in that it would take ages to get rid of them.

    I don't imagine factions or countries would last to long as proper organisations in an all out nuclear war, and I was just assuming that I would be one of the people who get's access to cryogenic freezing. if there was a remaining faction and slavery occurred, then the ensuing revolution against the faction would be fun to be a part of and I may end up being able to blow some heads of after all.

    In a zombie virus/pandemic/breakout/experiment ****-up, etc...

    why doesn't the government just quarantine?! And then bomb em!?

    Why are zombies even a thing?!

    However of course the first few hours of the outbreak it will be kick ass hysteria! But then how long would it take the government to be like "ah ****, zombies. Let's go boys." Let's be realistic here. Before it gets worse look at the area where the zombies are and order lockdown.

    Get the law enforcement out, military, get everyone out. But then of course no one is trained to kill zombies so the cops too might be scared. But let's go with they know how to kill the zombies. They'd stand in the streets like a warzone and guard everything. They would be called to duty. The president and local gov't would be summoned to duty as well. Who's going to put zombie-outbreak on the back burner? No one. It would be first priority.

    Catch one zombie and do experiments. Find out the cause. Kill em off (behead) meantime.

    For the people who missed the PSA that there's a zombie outbreak...well...there will be casualties. But the law enforcement/military lockdown would eventually step in. It takes time though. But why should it?

    Then you'd have to look at if the whole world is affected. Or if it came from another country. Now we're ****ed :lol:

    But if it's concentrated in one area, which is best case scenario in this worst case scenario, the above should be applied still. Meantime if we're lucky enough to be out and about while zombies are, woohoo! Action time! :cool:

    Well I wouldn't jump to cryogen, that's for sure but it's all about how you survive.
    hehe, Being part of a successful revolution should be awesome. Though in the wars, surviving an alien war would be more satisfying and could reconstruct humanity to be better (#FallingSkies)

    In most movies, the hybrids mostly came from experiments tho

    Remember the time when zombies were the actual dead who went for brains and were deemed supernatural.
    Now people think it is actually possible with the power of science and medicine

    I think World War Z is the film for you if this is what you think the government will always help

    As for TWD, well FTWD, it doesn't make sense how everything went tits up around the world simultaneously. But it makes sense why he gov can't do anything quickly to save it

    Wait why can't the gov't help?

    I was thinking to take a break from the realistic fiction writing I like to do and try my hand at an alien or supernatural creature apocalypse, in ode to Attack the Block only. More of what Attack the Block was missing, as well as my own ideas forming a whole new story but the inspiration was Attack the Block. And I have got everything like characters, villain species, setting and plot down...except what the gov would realistically do.

    And I haven't seen the new Walking dead series yet. I don't watch TV, I download subtitled movies movies movies. And listen to music.

    Zombies. I have an insanely fast boat and my mother has pretty much already mentally prepared for the situation. I'd just go out to the middle of a deep river, drop anchor and live off whatever I could grow onboard, fish and everything I would hoard in the first few months.

    I'd be happy as anything.

    He looks like Harry Potter. Or Simon from Misfits. His gif expressions are just too funny.

    Loved that movie. It was very interesting and funny af

    In the supernatural, I don't really know what the government would do.
    Best case if they know it's coming they start to build a impenetrable fortress/town/city Like the end of Resident Evil (The Japanese situated one).
    If they don't know it's coming, then I would put the president on a water base and start an assault from there.

    In terms of aliens. they would most likely try the Battle: Los Angeles approach (If they didn't know they were coming)
    If they do know, then they would try negotiate, understand what they are here for, start alliances with the world. Also probably move the PM off land. Have a specialised force to try infiltrate/destroy mothership. There is probably more but my brain juices are low

    P.S. This would also still happen if they didn't know they were coming
