The Doomed Starship
« on: June 21, 2010, 10:20:13 PM »
A transport ship is en route for mars for a research program, and you are one of the lucky crew to be able to set foot on the first habitable spot on the red planet. Things start going wrong when the ship loses contact with Earth, their course changed unbeknownst to the captain. The ship crash lands on an asteroid, and most of the crew dies upon impact, some may still be on the ship but they are missing. Some areas of the ship have decompressed and are now inaccessible unless fixed. Food, water and oxygen is limited and what remains of the crew has to pull themselves together to salvage a rescue- That is of course, if the crew works together instead of against each other for resources. This your story, this is the story of the crew of CLS Cruiser 4300.


-IMPORTANT NOTE:

This may be a freeform roleplay but no overpowered people. What you can't do in real life, you cannot do in game.

There will be extra terrestrial life in this roleplay. Be aware of that while you are roleplaying.

25 and 29?  That's going to make a splash. :D  I'm interested in the RP, but what kind of timeframe are we talking?  Is this very near future, or greater than 50 years from now?

Far in the future, somewhere where everything is no longer dependent on crude oil.

Therefore please mod your post Linna.

Otherwise Question Mark accepted.

Name: Kathy

Age: 20

Description:


Brief History: Kathy is a robotics expert. She's pretty good at repairing and maintaining robots and devices of all types, but she's even better at piloting them. She joined the program right out of high school, due to her amazing skills, and was brought aboard to pilot the unmanned vehicles that they were going to use for exploration, mining and other missions on the planet. The ship has a lot of robots for her to pilot, from the size of a mouse to that of a large dog, and many parts should she need to make more.

She is used to working in very confined environments, surrounded by machines, in hot conditions, and as such always wears very little, often spending days without putting a shirt on, simply going around in her cargo pants with a bra on. While she is not a soldier, and doesn't have a very strong body, she did take the time to go through some martial art classes and always carries a knife in a holster on her pants.

Name:  Marcus Halbane
Age: 35
History:  An ex-military combat technician, Marcus signed up for the MICE project to start a new life.  He's had training with both technical repairs and mechanical, though no experience with robotics or cybernetics.  Wounded twice during combat, one of his injuries resulted in him losing his right arm; the military replaced it with a bionic one that performs all of the functions a normal arm could  with the addition of being able to shut off pain receptors and maintain a grip indefinitely.

You have no idea how hard it was to find a decent non-armoured male character pic for a sci-fi starship crew.

And besides, Daniel always ended up with the women on the show...

This sounds like a fun one.  Please count me in.

Name: Capt./Dr. Jacqueline “Jackie” Crane, MD

Description:

Brief History: Jackie grew up in a family with a long history in the military.  Her father was a decorated Air Force Colonel.  Mother abandoned them when she was 10. 

A very disciplined student, Jackie went to school at the Air Force academy and was a natural pick for the M.I.C.E program.  She has had to work in combat hot zones in all sorts of conditions.  Pressure situations are not a problem.

So, question:  When are we starting the game, before they've boarded the ship or as it's crashing (or even after)?  If we set the start before the incident, it would give time to introduce characters and let them get to know one another.

Good question. It's up to applesauce but I would think just before, maybe in time to do 2 or 3 posts before crashing, indicating where each of us is for the crash.

All accepted :).

By the way...

Due to popular demand, the ship will be off course, just lost contact. '

I never said anything about crude oil, only the Middle East.  Even after the oil is gone, the entire place is a hotbed of religious zealots trying to kill one another.  Peacekeeping missions wouldn't be uncommon, especially if a country such as Iraq became another local favorite of the US, just like Israel is.  Do I still need to modify my character?

Hehe, just re-read the op and saw that "there will be extra terrestrial life" in the game; does that mean an excess of beings from earth?  :P  Joking, I know what you meant.

Right now Kathy is just waiting for someone to go see her, or for something big to happen to drag her away from her robots.
