I'm still interested in playing (not running, I have other running ideas in mind).
As far as setting goes, how about these as possible guidelines:
Earth-based or Non-Earth based
- Star Wars (FTL, beam weapons, shields, non-replicated food, no transporters, AI common and ok)
- Star Trek (FTL, beams, shields, replicators, transporters, AI in development)
- Firefly/Serenity [TV/Movie] (FTL, slugthrowers, few expensive/unreliable beams, no shields, non-replicated food, no transporters, no AI)
- Galactica, New (FTL, slugthrowers, no beams, no shields, non-replicated, no transporters, AI=bad)
It would be nice to know what the "standard" government (or largest) is called. Just for character backgrounds, etc.
