Alien Encounters Ender's Games Sci-Fi fun connections 1. Ender is the third child in his family and has been monitored by the government to see how he handles certain situations and his intelligence. The I.F. (military) arrives at Ender’s house to recruit him, and soon Ender is off to the battle station that will be his home for the next few years. This is where they will train him to become a supreme military general to fight the bugger invasion that is predicted to happen.

2. Ender is considered a military genius who can adapt too many different situations. Graff pushes Ender to his limits with rigorous tasks, trying to find a weak spot in Ender. Ender progresses so rapidly that he is being promoted years above of what he should be. Because of this rapid improvement Ender must face various challenges with each promotion he receives.

Maybe humanity needs me—to find out what you're good for. We might both do despicable things, Ender, but if humankind survives, then we were good tools." pg 35
Graff explains to Ender why he is being picked to go to Battle School. Even though Ender does not want to go to Battle School he still does because he understands that the world is counting on him. The world uses Ender as a tool because they need him to fight against the buggers. If Ender succeeds even if he has to do something terrible he is still a worthy tool.

2.) "I am not a happy man, Ender. Humanity does not ask us to be happy. It merely asks us to be brilliant on its behalf. Survival first, then happiness as we can manage it." pg 277
Mazer Rackham is telling Ender that he still believes that the survival of our planet requires people to make sacrifices, and then the chance for them to do something for themselves comes after.
