[COLOR="goldenrod"]First of all allow me to present those who were chosen for this assignment:

[B]Expedition leader:[/B] Brianna Henderson - Played by indifference
[B]Commanding Officer:[/B] Marcus T. DeSouza - Played by BKstyles
[B]Co-pilot/engineer:[/B] Kendra A. Erickson - Played by SunfallE
[B]Pilot:[/B] Alexander-James Bishop – played by Disenchanted
[B]Scientist/Mechanic:[/B] Nakeisha Rhodes – played by Shy
[B]Foreign-relations/languages expert[/B]: Michael J Travis – played by Rachmaninoff
[B]Military Officer:[/B] Lt. Morrison Vayne – played by The Boss
[B]Military Officer:[/B] Major Cameron James – played by Aaryanna
[B]Military Officer:[/B] Captain Teresa Schovick – played by Aaryanna
[B]Medic:[/B] Catherine Sanderson – played by Aaryanna_Mom

With so many excellent applications it was a difficult choice. However as you may note there are three Military Officers instead of the intended two. This is due to the dangers associated with the very first assignment the team will receive and upon reflection the CIF decided to accept an additional crew member.

You do not need to worry about what that assignment is just yet, soon you will be briefed and the mission thread will be posted in the Adventure Square. Until then we'd like to present the ship you will be assigned to, the:

[B][SIZE="4"][CENTER]Argo Navis[/CENTER][/SIZE][/B]

Now before the first assignment goes up, if there any concerns or questions. Please address them here. ^_^ And most of all, get ready for some fun! :catgirl:

[CENTER][SIZE="4"][B]Character Personalities [/B][/SIZE][/CENTER]

[B]Colonel Marcus DeSouza[/B] – Clearly confident in his abilities and yet a tad reserved, especially in regards to Major Cameron James who he frequently gives the cold shoulder to.
[B]Kendra Erikson[/B] – Excited to be part of the mission and yet less than thrilled with the choice of mechanic.
[B]Brianna Henderson[/B] – Stern and a bit uncertain over being assigned to work with the military. Much like DeSouza she is not use to sharing command with the military just as he is not use to sharing with a civilian.
[B]Lieutenant Morrison Vayne[/B] – Focused and always thinking about the security side of any job.
[B]Michael Travis[/B] – A bit reserved, except in regards to various languages.
[B]Captain Teresa Schovick[/B] – Easily the most hyper of the entire crew.
[B]Alexander-James Bishop[/B] – A bit flippant and yet quite thrilled over the chance to pilot the Argo Navis.
[B]Major Cameron James[/B] – Eager to do his job and yet confused by the cold demeanor of the Colonel.
[B]Nakeisha Rhodes[/B] – A bit snobbish in regards to using the latest tools but still means well.

[size=1]I have some general questions about the Agro Navis itself.

Are we the only crew on the ship, or are there other NPCs as support staff? How large is the ship? How does space travel work?

[COLOR="goldenrod"]We are the only crew. The ship itself is designed to handle a crew of 15. There are no NPC/support staff since it's designed so that it could literally be operated by just one person. Essentially the whole idea was to make the need for additional staff redundant. However, the CIF is expecting the crew to run into trouble, to possibly need to do repairs, etc. Which is why both an engineer and a mechanic were selected. Kendra A. Erickson and Nakeisha Rhodes. Between the two of them, their combined skills should be capable of fixing anything on the ship should it need it. ^_~

As for space travel itself, it works by virtue of traveling through a different realm of space altogether. Commonly known as hyperspace. [/COLOR]

[COLOR="goldenrod"]Argo Navis? Hehehe! I just realized where I've seen that ship before. :catgirl: Though I suppose that you removed the name Diplo helps Beth, as far as it taking a moment for me to realize what it is. lol Though knowing that makes it easy for me to think about just how big the ship really is. ^_~ Which begs a question. Will we have transport technology like the ship does in Star Ocean?

Anyway, I'm assuming that food is pretty basic, or rather that we have the supplies and simply fix it ourselves. Unless you're thinking of something else. Anyway. Whee! It's gonna be fun! :catgirl:[/COLOR]

[FONT="Tahoma"]Diplo >.>, dunno what you're talking about. :p

Heh, but anyway. We didn't have the original design of the ship's interior in mind when we decided on the ship. We would rather that also be a part of the creativity of our participants. But to those who ARE famliar with the interior, it's much the same size, not large but at the same time seemingly more than accomodating for the ten of us.

The food we set off with will be pretty basic, rations, etc. Food for later will become an obvious solution in time.

Look for the thread to be up between tonight and tomorrow evening :).

[b]Edit:[/b] In answer to your question about transport, for long range needs yes. But obviously if we are able to walk plain off the ship like if we are on a planet, it won't be necessary ;P.[/FONT]

[COLOR="Navy"][SIZE="1"]Yay, looking forward to this. ^^

The ship looks pretty big O.o;;

But I was wondering since there isn't any crew besides us, if the ship or something else incurs a large amount of damage, how is one mechanic going to be able to fix all by herself?[/SIZE][/COLOR]

At least not compared to say military battleships and such. ^_~

As for the damage issue, all ships have backup systems and in the end, if the damage really is serious, the mechanic and the engineer's job will be to fix it enough so one can get to a space station where full repairs can be done. And even then, depending on where you are you'll simply get assistance if needed. If it's too damaged to get to a space station on it's own that is.

Also, it's not apparent, but the ship is designed for long voyages in the sense that all systems installed are ones that have an excellent track record as far as reliability goes. More experimental or less proven technology was not used. The biggest worry would be damage from an outside hostile force vs the ship actually breaking down. [/COLOR]

[COLOR="goldenrod"]Whee! :catgirl: And done BKstyles. ^_~ I like how you started it. That and I want to steal that banner you made SunfallE. I don't suppose you have the full scan for that do you? *puppy dog eyes* I mean... It is from Star Ocean! I love how that room looks when you fight Luther. ^_^

Oh and thanks for answering my questions. :p Trust me, I'll have lots more I'm sure. lol Now I want everyone to show up so we can get our first mission! [/COLOR]

[quote name='Sakura'][COLOR="Navy"][SIZE="1"]Yay, looking forward to this. ^^[/SIZE][/COLOR][/QUOTE]You and me both. ;) There aren't anywhere near enough rpg's like this around. I like the space travel Sci - Fi type of deal, so it's good to see another one running.

Also, I had you thought of making note of terms like the CCB (computerized clip board)? It just seems to me that if you plan on introducing more terms like that, every so often it would be useful if a list was posted here in the underground thread updating it, making it easier to keep track of such terms. I was thinking that once I get started on the medical side of this, I'd end up with abbreviations along those lines as well in the rpg.

Though if you're not, then I'll not worry about it. It's not like keep such terms straight really matters. It would be nifty though. But only because I like that kind of detail. It just makes it more fun. :catgirl:

[FONT="Tahoma"]I brought that very detail up to Beth as I was typing up the opening post, it was actually why i used the CCB. Once everyone makes their intro posts and we get started, i'll compile a little list of nifty little terms and such that have been used and keep them updated everytime a new one is introduced, that way it'll always be in the same place. People won't have to shuffle through pages of the underground thread.[/FONT]

Here in the front page of the underground? Is that what you mean? In which case I agree, that would be much easier than sorting through page after page to find the current list.

Anyway, looks like all we need is for two more people to arrive and we can get started. I know I'm very curious to see just what the first mission will be.

Yeah, this is the part I hate the most... waiting to begin, heh. This is worse than waiting to see if I was accepted. Becuase now I'm anxious to write something.[/color][/size]

Especially since Beth's been such a tease over what the first mission will be. Giving me hints that are meaningless and in the end I find it ironic to be playing an expedition leader who has no clue where she's going yet. :p

Oh and Beth... I'm with Aaryanna, that's a great banner and since I know that scan is over at AnimePaper, [[SIZE="1"]I'm assuming you got it there, it's not like you don't have enough papers after all XP[/SIZE]] Anyway... if you've got a full copy, I'd like to have it too. If you don't mind that is. [/COLOR]

[color=navy][size=1]I'm sorry that I still haven't done my opening post but I've been busy for the past week. I'll try to get one in as soon as possible. More than likely within the next two days or so. But just so you all know I've never been a fan of introduction posts >.>[/color][/size]

So how about you think of it as an arrival post instead? Since if you think about it, that's what it really is. Your character's reaction to being chosen and what they are thinking as they arrive at the new ship, etc. I mean, you do have to start somewhere, right? And speaking of that, even though my character was introduced by virtue of being in Matt's opening post I'll get working on my starting post. :catgirl:

Aaryanna & indifference, I'm glad you like the banner and yes you're both correct I do have the full scan of that so I'll shoot that off to both of you in an e-mail. The file's too big for hosting at imageshack or my photobucket account for that matter. [/COLOR]

I figured it out. Especially after Beth's post where she mentions this:[QUOTE=SunfallE'][COLOR="goldenrod"'] Even if Marcus rarely spoke about it. Kendra knew how much his younger brother's disappearance hurt. He had been so proud to learn that Cameron had been assigned to the Planet Police, Special Task Force. [/COLOR][/quote]Even if the dates are off that [I]has [/I]to be poor Cameron from the Panopticon. lol Though I suppose you can always claim DB got the date wrong, right? :p[/COLOR]

I wanna get started! ^_^ Oh and thanks for the scan Beth. Hehe, I'm gonna have fun with that.

Now lets see.... How does one make this a non-spam post... Oh I know, do we have a general map or idea of how the four nations are located in relation to one another? Or is that going to just be semi assumed instead of detailed out? For example I'm assuming that to some extent they aren't in the same solar system like say Earth and Mars are. But yet they are close enough that travel between them isn't too time consuming. Or something like that. Regardless I'm ready for that first mission! ^_^[/COLOR]

[FONT="Tahoma"]*is poked by Aaryanna* :animestun

Hehe, yes indeed my little secret easter egg has been found out ;P. The date was of course manipulated to make it more outlandish for the panopticon's atmospere.

I'll start first by saying that the first post in the underground thread will be the official list post for the important artifacts/equipment/relationships/places/etc that are shown and established throughout the RP, if that is cool with Beth since it'll be up to her to edit them in once we've discussed them ;P. If not then i can make it one of my posts.

As for location, yeah within the same general area on a galactic scale. Like what mercury/venus/earth would be in relation to one another, or even the same planet having several areas belonging to several nations. Using earth as an example of the latter, say North America was Creid territory and Asia was Narisyan territory, etc.

[size=1]I'll be getting my first post up sometime tomorrow. I apologize for not completing it sooner, but real life is getting in the way and my In-Laws are in town... ugh.

Wish me luck. :whoops:

[SIZE="1"][COLOR="Navy"]Ok, I did finally get my post in. Sorry if it's not very good or long; done at night when I'm about ready to go to bed, but at least it's done right? >.>

Matt, I didn't really know how to approach the Cameron thing, so I hope that's ok, if not you know how to contact me.

Now I'm going to sleep :catgirl:[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[COLOR="Indigo"]All right Beth, let me know if I got that right. If not I'll just edit it. I still think it's funny that you sneaked in that reference to Cameron, BKstyles. lol Anyway, I left out any specifics as to an actual time frame and such since I forgot to ask if it was recent or several years since Cameron was nailed by the Panopticon. :p[/COLOR]

[size=1]I just posted. Again I apologize for the delays in that.

I'm writing Nakeisha as being a little overconfident and snobbish. No doubt the first mission will serve to humble the young woman.

-Shy[/size][/QUOTE]I noticed that. ;) So I played on that to have Catherine concerned that she'll get the bright idea to 'upgrade' the medical equipment. lol

Anyway, I'm looking forward to our first mission, especially since everyone is on board so to speak. :catgirl:
