Wait... what are the apple family doing in space?  Are they harvesting, uh... space apples or something?  Eh, what the heck, your right. 
Yeah, space apples.  Because space. 

Very nicely done.

Actually, they're loading a food (apples) stock to be stored aboard a freighter spacecraft, delivering supplies to numerous off-world colonies.

After traveling for many years, finding and colonizing many new planets, they encountered one which had another sentient species, one which would permanently alter everything the ponies thought about their universe. That planet... was Earth.

And thus, Ponies met the human race.

...That needs to be a fanfic.

However, not all was to be fun and games. Celestia XVI, tyrant rising to power, decided that the ponies could be the only "pure" sentient race. She organized an invasion of the human-held space, aiming for total domination. Little did she know, this action would cause total devastation among both sides..

What is freelancer?

Its a space sim from 2003, where you fly around in your space ship and trade goods/shoot things etc.

Its setting, plot and feel makes it one of my favourite games.

(if you prefer a space RTS though, homeworld is quite legendary)

Oh god I love freelancer so much! This is amazing, I immediately recognized it which is pretty impressive since it must have been about 4 years since I played the game! You must have captured the spirit of the game or something! Very beautiful space-scape and excellent choice of cross-over! :D Makes me want to install freelancer on this computer and play it all over again!

I have had thoughts in the space direction.
Then I wrote a fic, because it was inspiring.
Were this not after the fact, in that sense, this probably would have inspired me to write the fic... if you see what I mean.

I myself just might try my hand at writing something space-ish. at least writing some ideas down.

Mine's there on my DA account as an example of Military Sci Fi, and the more "domestic" science fiction angle isn't covered much - a possible framework? Or a distraction, of course, since the Apple clan's positions in my fic are already assigned.
Eh, whatever. Be interesting to see your approach.
