Alright folks, here is the deal.

You are the captain and crew of a ship, pulled from one of the many universes we so like to muck around in.

You have been tossed into an unknown solar system, and with several others (I hope), you must work together to survive.

...That's about all I got at the moment, so we'll be discussing things here, like the sign up profile sheet and * stuff.

Okay, here is the profile to use for the ship itself. The crew profile I'll ask for help on.

  • Class:
  • Ships Name:
  • Unit type:
  • Manufacturer:
  • Operator:
  • First deployment:
  • Dimensions:
  • Weight:
  • Crew:
  • Powerplant:
  • Fixed armaments:
  • Fighter Craft:
  • Details:


Current Cast (I will try to keep this up to date >.>)


And here is my ship/crew profile:

  • Class: Mercury
  • Ship Name: Typhon
  • Unit type: Battlestar (Combined Battleship and Carrier)
  • Manufacturer: Twelve Colonies of Man (The Colonials for short)
  • Operator: Colonial Military
  • First deployment: N/A (Never Mentioned)
  • Dimensions: 1789.8 Meters (5872ft) in Length.
  • Weight: N/A (Never Specified)
  • Crew: 2500 Officers and Crewmen, 300 Marines
  • Powerplant: Tylium Ore fed engines.
  • Fixed armaments:
    • 34 x Twin Heavy Kinetic Energy Weapon Mounts (30 dual barrel Turrets, 4 Fixed forward firing twin mounts);
    • 322 x Point defense guns, mounted in pairs around the structure of the ship;
    • Several Missile Tubes for both conventional and nuclear weapons
  • Fighter Craft: 200 Viper Mk VII Fighters, 50 Raptor Support craft
  • Details: Introduced some years after the First Cylon War, the structural design of the Mercury class differs significantly from the original Galactica type battlestar. The "neck" section is smaller, and the Mercury class features eight sublight engine pods instead of the older class's six. Its edges are more angular, and the hull is more completely armored (no exposed ribs). Each flight pod consists of two stacked landing bays with adjoined decks and hangars, which along with computer-assisted landings results in a faster Viper recovery rate. Each flight pod also has Raptor landing bays on the sides, allowing for rapid transfer of crew cargo when docked. These pods are fixed and do not retract when executing an FTL jump, suggesting advances in jump systems. Inside, the class features automated sliding doorways, basic computer recognition stations in vital areas, and networked computer systems. An example of this class carries a complement of 50 Raptors and 200 Viper Mark VII fighters (8 squadrons and two reserve squadrons color coded blue, red, green, yellow, orange, purple, black, white, and reserve squadrons gold and silver). The Typhon just finished fitting out in the shipyard when it vanished in what is believed to be an FTL accident, with all crew aboard considered lost.

  • Commander Alexander Vrake – age 39, dark brown hair, green eyes, goatee. Known for a slightly laid back approach and not above cracking a joke. Deadly serious if anything threatens his ship however. Has a closet phobia of Cylons and Artificial Intellegence.

  • Executive Officer Cornelia Aries – Age 34, Short Black Hair, blue eyes. Totally Serious when on duty, nicknamed the “Head Bitch of the Ship” by the crew. Can be somewhat laid back when off duty, but not always.

  • Chief Engineer Barts – 41, Buzz Cut blonde hair, dark brown eyes. Humorous joker personality. Loves his engines, but holds little regard for 'proper' officers, save his commander.

The crew, on the other hand... XD

I'll be using an OC crew in a Gunstar, which there is virtually no information on.

Reven, would adding Jail and/or the Numbers as a weird sort of Enemy Mine be okay? Because he's the only person around who knows how that damn thing works and, therefore, is the most likely candidate for getting it to operational status.

And Riot Force 6, non-combat personnel included, consists of maybe two dozen people at most. [lol]

I don't have a problem with that. It actually might be fun, forcing Riot Force Six to work with Jail. I can expect Nanoha to not really have much...caring for the man who stuck Vivio in that chair. [lol]

It would amuse me if said troop transport had no troops on it because it had finished transporting. [lol]

Pointless, though. Nevertheless, amusing.

I don't really have a problem with that Raineh, I know you're fairly laid back with things. Also the whole Colonial phobia of robots would be neat with the combat Cyborgs involved.

I do need help with a character sheet for the crews >.>

@GCR: I can see that working...also gives me an excuse to throw the things at us evil grin

I kinda want a size limit of about 3000-4000 meters for ship size.

Any bigger and the smaller guys might get left behind if I have to throw an enemy at those ships to make it equal.

Raineh, why don't you ask Anno for help with the crew? The two of you did pretty good with Nanoha last I checked.

  • Class: Unknown, the Cradle is unique.
  • Ships Name: The Saint's Cradle. Used to be known as the warship.
  • Unit type: Battlestar, when fully operational, currently a carrier.
  • Manufacturer: Al-Hazard, potentially, otherwise Ancient Belka.
  • Operator: Formerly the Belkan Saint-Kings, then Jail Scaglietti, now a combination of Scaglietti and Riot Force 6.
  • First deployment: Unknown
  • Dimensions: 'Several kilometres'. Taking several to mean three or four, here.
  • Weight: Unknown
  • Crew: In all honesty? Currently measuring about two to three dozen, there's the entirety of Riot Force 6 and Scaglietti's forces. Enemy Mine ho! The crew can go as low as one person and still be operational. There are also swarms of people-stabbing antimagic robots.
  • Powerplant: Giant Red Magical Crystal. Currently kind of broken.
  • Fixed armaments:
    • Gunport Lasers: Fifty-six of these, 42 in the lower half (21 a side) and 16 at the top. That is more than the Crew, which is something of a problem, unless remote control is possible.
    • At full power, this thing is capable of ship-to-surface, cross-dimensional attacks, and appears to be responsible for having destroyed several planets. Whilst much of its strength is likely in having been a military base, even at low power it would likely have an impressive array of magical lasers. It is, however, currently kind of broken and will take forever to get back to full strength.
  • Fighter Craft: None, unless you count mages. I don't think they can breathe in space, however...
  • Details: Since this thing gained its name because the Saint-Kings spent their whole lives on it, it can be established that the non-combat capacities of the Cradle are impressive, if nowhere near such things as the engine room and throne room. They presumably have some means for mages to operate in space. It also served as a military base, so there's likely manufacturing capabilities of some sort on board.

Naturally, as things progress, the thing's capabilities would get stronger. Especially if any source of manpower is ever acquired...

[up] I'm going to. Anno is off-line at the moment, though. tongue

Oh, size limit, huh... Guess that's my decision whether to take the whole Macross 7 or just the Battle 7 made for me, then. Right, uh, I guess I'll just edit what I have so far then, ahah~

Ahah, alright then. Although it'll just be the Battle 7 and City 7, as including all of the other stuff would make it less a ship and more a small armada. >.< But anyways, better undo the changes I'd made so far...
