You're stuck in space over an unknown planet (sorry). You know that because you can see it on the view screen in front of you. You see blue oceans and several landmasses that appear a mix of purple, yellow, and gray. Are those spiderweb patterns roads connecting towns? You don't remember why you're here. You don't remember what the planet is or who (or what!) might be down there. You can't remember who is with you on the spaceship. You can't remember what your role on the ship is or your rank. You can't even remember your own name. Maybe the ship's computer can help you. "Computer?" You look around. Nothing happens. Nothing responds. You can't remember how to get the ship's computer to respond to you! This is very aggravating. You look around the area (you'd call it a cockpit or a helm) to get an idea of who the crew, including you, are. There are four chairs at four stations. There are some personal knick-knacks, but they don't jog any memories as of yet. You look out at the planet, trying to get an idea of what sort of place it is and why you're here. As you do, you get a glimpse of yourself in the shiny window: you vaguely recognize your own face, and the uniform you have on. You also notice your name badge. What do you look like? What does your uniform look like? And what does your name badge say?

> Red hair, a middle shade of brown skin
> your name tag reads "Harcourt"
> My name is Kav. I am wearing a simple black uniform with grey boots and gloves. I'm relatively average for my species, with a gold-colored exoskeleton, red compound eyes, and jagged antennae as my only real standout trait.
Your nametag reads Ruby Chamberlain, You're a girl on the chubby side who has long red curls go down to your chest and bright emerald green eyes. You spot freckles all over your body. Your uniform is a simple sailor/navy uniform with a dark blue ribbon and light blue slacks.

> A woman, with dark complexion and rounded features. Gaunt, like she hasn't eaten for weeks. She is wearing a standard Colonial Conscript battle dress: navy blue fatigues pockmarked with grey digital camouflage patterns. The badge says "AK-416".
>The name is Peridot Ross, nickname Dot. I'm wearing a light green and teal army uniform and have short, dark hair. I'm around five feet and half tall and have light skin.
You're a human male, with brown colored skin. Your dark hair is swept back, and you have a few more white hairs than you'd like. You're not sure if it's age or stress or just genetic. You have an immaculately combed beard and dark, sunken eyes, as if you haven't slept in days. You're wearing something resembling a NASA uniform, and your nametag reads "Ramirez".

>You may look like a human, but you know you're not. You are wearing the traditional uniform of your people: a long, colorful robe of Egyptian appearance, capped by a truly magnificent hat, fit for a pharaoh. Your name tag, the one element which doesn't gel well with the uniform, is slightly obscured, but the last two letters, "RA," are visible.
> Your face is hidden behind a metallic mask, with a simple one-way visor to let you see. Much of the rest of your body is concealed by a hood. The name tag has only an illegible scrawl on it.
What you look like: You're a woman, about five foot six inches. Your hair is short and dark with a few streaks of white. Your green eyes look somewhat more than human — sunken, tired, but compound, like an insect. You have brown skin, and darker freckles all over your body. Uniform: You have a long, colorful Egyptian robe, which you take off now. Beneath it, your uniform is simple, a black top and boots with pants of grey digital camoflage. Name Badge: Your badge is a NASA badge. It tells you that your name is Ruby Ramirez.
> Read the diary and see what it says. Maybe get a snack to have while you're at it, if there are any.
>Try to find something edible and stuff it in your mouth. Wash your hands if you need to and then read your diary.
> Pour a glass of champagne for yourself.
>look outside into the endless void of space
>Take champagne, chug directly from bottle
>When in doubt, drink heavily. Slam the bottle of champagne.
> Wait, is it really champagne inside the bottle? Read the label and inspect the liquid. If it is alcohol, well, chug away.
>Raise toast to the planet you're orbiting.
> Examine your surroundings
> Look through my crewmate's shit
> Did the ship have a science lab? See if there is one, and if so, whether analysing what the hell's up with the fizz is within your skillset.
> Pick a god and pray
