I've been on a sci-fi kick lately, I have read maybe 6 books in the last week or so, all Sci-Fi based. Various levels of technology and alien life forms, so I've decided to put some feelers out and see who might be interested in a 'first contact/survival' sort of setting?
I am thinking its a deep-space exploration ship. So this is what I've got so far.
Scout Ships and Exploration Ships are perhaps some of the most dangerous ships to be stationed on, no matter who you are. They travel into deep-space, exploring new systems, searching for signs of life. Their deployments, as such, can last for several years, which means it'll be another several years before anyone realizes you are over-due. And not all of the ships that set out do make it back. There are a lot of things that could go wrong. Jump-Drives can destabilize, a meteor shower can strike...and countless other things can go wrong. But who doesn't want to be the person to find that new, colonizable planet? Or better yet, who doesn't want to be the person that finds the first Alien life?
Despite the odds, no alien life forms have been discovered yet as the fledgling humans start to venture into space. Billions of dollars have been poured into space exploration and colonies, though they have yet to find a truly earth-like planet. They have found other creatures - similar to earth creatures - in a few places, but no sentient life forms like everyone has been expecting. But that could change at any moment, literally.
The United States is at the forefront of space exploration and technology. China is a close second, with Russia, the UK, the EU and even India all runners up in the Space-Race. Earth has been declared a 'safe-zone' - all conflicts are resolved in space. No one wants to be responsible for wiping out the Human Race on Earth. A combined Earth-Defense-Force is responsible for maintaining the peace around Earth.
The USS Nautilus
is a deep-space exploration ship, traveling further then any other ship ever has in hopes of finding life.
This is the ship we will be a part of. I want the key crew-member roles filled before expanding the selection.The Crew:
