The year is 2147. Humanity is no longer alone in the universe. 35 years ago, the first manned human-made vessel left the Sol system. Two months later, said vessel made first contact with an alien race. Thankfully, the alien race turned out to be benign and friendly to the humans. Nearly immediately, strong diplomatic ties were made, and an exchange of information and technology was set up. Unlike the humans, the aliens did possess FTL technology. After decades of negotiations, the aliens finally agreed to share their FTL technology. In 2142, a joint venture of alien and human engineers went to work on the first FTL ship humanity was to produce. In 2147, the first prototype, the Endeavor, was launched from its space-dock. Its mission, to shatter the boundaries of the distance humans traveled and go further than any human has gone before.
Naturally, something goes terribly wrong on its maiden voyage. The Endeavor gets sucked into a worm hole and emerges on the far reaches of the galaxy. Even with FTL travel, it would take decades to get back to earth. To make matters worse, the Endeavor has a critical engine failure soon after the worm hole jump and has to crash land on an uncharted and inhospitable planet.
This roleplay would cover the struggle for survival that the surviving crew are faced with on said planet.
I am looking for 3-5 players (possibly will expand this to more should there be enough interest). All but one of them should be human. One slot is reserved for a member of the alien race, who was on board as an observer to the first human FTL voyage. I left the details of the alien race purposefully vague to give whomever chooses to play that role 100% freedom. You can choose a canon race from Trek or SW, or invent an entirely original one.
The roles I would like to fill are as follows:
The captain of the ship
The executive officer (basically the second in command)
The head of the security force
I myself will play NPC crew members (and some other surprises I will not yet mention
The Endeavor sets out with a crew of 112, but only 81 of those will survive the crash landing.
