Earth, a lovely cool blue marble. A warm planet filled with life, a world that has a bit of everything

you hate it.

Ever sense you were a kid you wanted to get away. See the stars, now this is your chance

The USS August is an expeditionary spaceship meant to explore the galaxy, And you fucks got assigned together on a small dinky little refurbished bomber. It's nowhere near state of the art but it's your home away from home. So get ready to sit in it for the next 20 years


Welp. It's this again, attempt 3.

    Well this is going to go better(let's hope)
    and i'm drawing a lot of inspiration from faster than light. (it's a good gam)

    Engineer. Engineering and electricianing. You got assigned to this ship because honestly the expedition has too many people that know how to engineer.

    Ok. Also oh boy planned char development

    A freelance writer as captain. I can see why you got assigned to a crap ship that's probably going to see maybe 5 days of action a month

    one more. We need a scientist, and then maybe some more if I get lucky


    A quick note:
    This is going to be very story based. I'm going to be gently nudging you around but you guys need to keep the drama up

    Why I joined: Got bored of plumbing
    Job: Plumber
    Skill: Alchemy
    Position: Scientist

    Background: Was plumbing for some crazy guy who wanted to install a beer dispenser in place of his tap, then accidentally mixed come cleaning fluid with beer and realized he had created a cool new chemical. From there he read up on chemistry and became an expert alchemist.

    Personality: Normally jovial and upbeat, but if you disturb any of his experiments, he gets really angry.

    Favourite saying: "My lab, my rules."

    Via some stupidity and some sheer luck. You managed to get a spot on the ship. Although you were going to be assigned as the ships plumber. Your small shuttle needed a science officer so you got reassigned.

    The August sits above titan. The complex factories of titan span most of the land, Here most of the fueling and refueling is preformed. You take one good look at the great jewel of the solar system. Saturn and it's magnificent bands.

    The fourth admiral of the August slugs you in the back.
    "Hey, get used to this sight. We are gonna see a lot more of these in the next 10 years."

    The August is loaded with almost 500 Tons of conventional fuel. And another 150 Tons of warp fluid. The ship has onboard the industrial equipment to (should the need arise) create even more fuel. And ability to make something of about 100 tons of warp fluid. The 253 people onboard run the ship. From the cooks to the science team to the small security detail. The august is tailed by the Little brother. A mercenary escort ship. With a crew of 23 it's armed to the teeth. Every inch of that ship has the firepower to take down the august six times. And it's there to make sure someone doesen't take down the august.

    1/3 updates until departure from titan and signups close

    Ok well noone else is joining.

    As you prepare the ship for the trip. One last crew-member blumbles in
    Davies Belue. Weapons Officer.

    (Secondary Roles avaliable. Ground Leader, Tech Specialist.)

    The August leaves port. The last glimpse of saturn in the distance as the ship begins the flight to the edge of the solar system to prepare for hyperspace.

    Head to my lab, and take stock of the available materials for any experiments I might want to conduct.

    Ahh, the lab. Your home for the next 10+ years.
    In the center of the lab is your desk. The plasma microscope on one end and a hyper-sink in the other. In the corner of the lab is a containment bay for more... Volatile experiments or alien species. And a door on the left leads into your small bedroom. A bunkbed with your bed on the top and a small compartment for living below it. Your room probably has as much room as a bathroom. (Room density x10)

    I run one last check over the hyperdrive systems.

    Ready to jump.

    The hyperdrive looks a little worse for wear. You take count of the warp fluid and fuel. Should be enough for about 50 jumps and enough fuel to fly from pluto to the sun 100 times.

    “Jesus, how old is this thing?”


    I make sure that the warp field is stable, before giving the all clear.

    (what’s this ship look like anyway? did I sign up for a garbage scowl?)

    I don't know what I should or shouldn't do here . . .

    Since I'm the captain, that means I'm sort of in charge here, right?

    Begin keeping an audio journal of our adventures.

    ENTRY NUMBER 1
    I can't believe it! We've finally taken off. It feels like I've waited for this day . . . for centuries. *chuckle* I'll probably publicly share this set of recordings in the future. But I'm not worried about that yet . . . I have to focus on the now before I focus on the future, right? Yeah, that's probably a good idea.

    Though, I still have a tendency to focus on what hasn't happened yet. The things that could happen, or the things . . . that will.

    We just took off. This thing's a scrap-heap, but I can accept that. In the end, it'll be the most famous space-faring ship in the entire universe.

    Trust me on that.


    ((By the way, is it alright to have some timey wimey shit as part of my background? It's not gonna actually appear during the adventures, just as part of the events that lead my character to join this ragtag bunch of misfits.))

    Your kind of captain of the smaller ship, (Can you name it btw?)
    The smaller ship you captain is a "Expedition" ship that docks with the august. You job is for quick adventures to asteroid belts to test the water per say. But you probably won't be doing anything useful.

    ((Sure thing. Just keep it somewhat beliveable. I don't want you going to stop jfk's assasination and then somehow causing the butterfly effect so that him surviving causes a nuclear war so you need to assasinate jfk instead or bullshit like that.
    Time travel is a slippery slope of fuckery.))

    “Jesus, how old is this thing?”


    I make sure that the warp field is stable, before giving the all clear.

    (what’s this ship look like anyway? did I sign up for a garbage scowl?)

    The ship's refurbished bomber during the 2026 war. The 4 year long war only ended a year ago. And this bomber survived it. It's a bit worse for wear. The bridge up front has some damaged sensors and the warp drive occasionaly spits out some warp fluid. But it works

    Worst part is, your bed is just a mattress over some covered piping, with a pop up wall separating you and the hyperdrive.

    It's gonna be loud most of the time.
    Good luck getting sleep.



    ((Also i'm going to be doing some stuff as davies. Mainly to push you forwards.))
    This starting segment is mostly going to be "How to not blow up the ship 101"

    Davies walks up to his station. A small control panel to the lower right of Neil's. The weapons panel.

    ((I'll PM you the basic gist.))

    Let's have the smaller ship be named the Kronos Epsilon.

    Not exactly the Omega from . . . way back when . . . but it works.

    Ehrm. Your still docked with the August

    Just walk around the place, taking in the sights. If I bump into one of the others, K.
  • SirfishSirfish Member Posts: 1,099 ✭✭✭
    You take a walk down the right wing of the ship. Here you find what's probably your kitchen on the ship, and the rear turret. Your line of defense against people on your tail.

    If I’m not there already, I go to the ship, then.
