I've always been a fan of the whole 'crash on a strange planet' scenario. So I thought why not, lets see what we can do.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING THOROUGHLY
So here's the basic idea. The 'Galileo' is a colony ship, taking 500 colonists to start a new life on a far distant planet. They have left everything they had on Earth, on the ship with them is everything they need to begin a new life. Building materials can be stripped from the ship, there are seeds and animal embryos in a state of deep freeze. There are food rations and medical supplies, everything that could be needed until they can support themselves, enough to last about five years.
The colonists have been selected from all walks of life, standards are high, only people who pass a strict selection process will have been selected. There are singles, couples and families. There is a small security force made up of military personal and a small medical department. The trip is a long one, fifty-three years. The colonists are in deep sleep, a skeleton crew are on a ten year rotation, five crews that serve ten years each, waking the next crew, handing over and then sleeping. Once they make orbit the colonists will be awoken, the move to the planet will take about six months all together.
But that doesn't happen. About half way to the planet the ship encounters an asteroid field. The asteroids are unpredictable and the ship is severely damaged, systems begin to fail and they manage to limp to the nearest habitable planet. There seems to be no intelligent life, at least to their limited scanners and sensors. As they approach the planet, the systems fail, the ship crashes through the atmosphere. The crash is terrible, many of the colonists are already dead, killed by systems failures after the asteroid strike, those who are in a bad way. The survivors have to try and make a new life for themselves, but the planet isn't as friendly as they had first thought.
Now I have a lot of ideas floating around, but first I would like to see what interest there is. I'm also looking for people who enjoy playing aggressors and baddies, no game is complete without the resident bad guys (either aliens or colony folk once their situation has got to them. To begin with everyone is pretty normal, scared, lost etc)
This is probably going into extreme, so bear that in mind when replying. So for now I would like to see what interest we have and any basic ideas you might have regarding characters and plots.
Bear in mind life does hit me hard at times and I don't have much warning, all the time I'm here I will write, when life strikes, I tend to disappear. This is just a heads up.
