No need to apologise, I'm just pulling your leg. As for a ship name, you could go for something common, Victory, Diligent, Freedom, Hope, Juggernaut, or maybe something more out there, Pegasus, Orion, Dark Matter, Silverfire...

Sorry to double post...

but what about FireShine?

Lol yep. :)

I do see lots of examples of names from Greek/Norse mythos, though. There are tons of options from those:

Perseus, Hermes, Hercules, Hydra, Minotaur, Argonaut, Sleipnir, Gungnir, Hunin, Munin, Mjolnir, Poseidon, Prometheus, Bellerophon, Kraken, just to name a few random ones.

Prometheus

Only if we get to run into a derelict space craft, with a strange array of semi-translucent orbs...

We could also go for some starry type names, like Gemini...

Honestly, I like Prometheus, Gemini, Argonaut and Valkyrie, especially considering the latter's name refers to a female warrior who escorts warriors from the battlefield and into valhalla. It just seems to fit the plot...

I didn't list that because there has already been one. :( Bill Adama actually commanded her himself.

There's also been an Athena, Atlantia, Columbia, Erasmus, Night Fight, Pegasus, Solaria, Triton, Uned, Universal, Valkyrie, Galactica, and Yashuman.

If that happens... shoot first, ask questions and dissect later. :P

Do NOT MOVE FORWARD and try to PET THE ALIEN. They are not hamsters or poodles. :P

I'm pretty sure it's standard procedure to press your nose to anything that looks out of the ordinary, especially if you see something move inside THEN you just have to get a closer look.

Oy, that's a great point. KC said we would not be involved with canon-NPCs... but he didn't say anything about ships! :P

I like it, definitely! :)

Everyone limit your list to 3 names and we'll go from there.  Also, I will allow second characters, but only if they fit a desired/required role and I like the concept.  Secondary characters will follow the same rules as primary, but start with the fewer ability points.

Now, to take care of this early on, does anyone mind characters under 18?

Anyone with a link to how the system being used in this game will work? I'm interested but I have no idea how the system works.

My three votes for ship name:  Valkyrie, Ithaca, Odyssey

As for under 18... I am fine with whatever E site-rules dictate that we are allowed to use. :)

Alright I read over everything, and still absolutely confused. But willing to learn. I'll read over a CS or two to try and get an idea.

So the idea is for most of the protagonists to be on the same ship?

Always loved the pilots, so probably a pilot of some kind (maybe a viper pilot if they are allowed).

Not really.  I would say that right now the protagonists are split between two ships (the main military and main civilian ship).  There will be a lot of other ships, though, and there is a second military ship that will be particularly significant, possibly a second civilian one as well.

Combat pilots are allowed.

How is it determined how many points are spent in each ability?

You decide based on how good you think your char would be in each ability, though you have a limited number of total points to spend.  If he is in his twenties, he will only have 15 points, but he will get an extra 3 points every ten years.
