Terra 5 - A futuristic, space RP (OOC Interest Check)

So I've been playing around with this for a while, but I've finally written up some basic info. If enough people are interested I'll set up a character sheet. Also I would appreciate and input into the scenario because I'm currently having trouble with that.

Terra 5:
AKA T-5

The fifth habitable planet colonised by The Intergalactic Colonisation Initiative (ICI), it is located on the far side of the Andromeda galaxy and was first visited by humans in the year 2256. However, it was soon discovered that despite meeting all of the criteria for being habitable, it had a slew of trouble. The air was breathable, but contained numerous cancer causing agents, the water was heavily polluted with arsenic and heavy metals, the earth contained no valuable minerals and was incapable of supporting most flora.

So it was no surprise that the ICI, later forming the Intergalactic People's Republic (IPR) largely abandoned the planet, leaving a space port, complete with teleportation to and from the planet, a variety of work equipment and a small city on the surface. It lay in ruin for several years until a variety of space pirates and other fugitives used it as a base. Fueled with money obtained from illegal sources, it became the central base of operations for virtually all illegal groups operating in the Andromeda galaxy. Eventually, a semi democratic government formed, run by the most influential pirate captains and individuals living on the planet, known simply as The Council.

Now, in the year 2578, itís a hive of villainy, lawlessness and criminals. With only a few corrupt IPR ships and officials there to maintain peace, it is perhaps the most dangerous place in the explored universe. It is also the setting for this RP.

Locations:
Shell: The capital city of the planet, located around large spring with the purest water on the planet. Basically a fortress, with extremely powerful anti-air and anti-ground defences. The base of operations for The Council and most of the pirates.

The Shipyard: A huge circular space station orbiting T-5, which repairs, refuels and even builds ships. Other than Shell, it is the most rich and powerful place around T-5. It is also connect to Shell by a couple of long ranged, fixed teleporters.

The Pit: A crater that is over 100km wide on the opposite side of T-5 from Shell, The Pit is a junkyard. Filled with destroyed ships, weapons and technology, The Pit is run by the Scavs, an organised group of scavengers and treasure hunters who specialise in recovering parts from The Pit. Supposedly, there is a hidden city somewhere in The Pit that is run by the Scavs, but no one outside of the group has ever seen it.

The story starts following two ships, an IPR military ship and a pirate ship who, just before fighting each other, are engaged by an unknown enemy ship. The IPR ship was doing a routine scouting expedition and is called The Atlanta. The pirate ship is called The Raven. The story will mostly follow the two crews, but plenty of other characters will show up too.

NB: If anyone wants to make a non-human character put up a separate post or send me a pm with details on the new species.

OK it is SciFi, I am tickled. What is your story idea?

Do you want to run a good vs bad RP?

A few good men and women trying to survive and land on T5?

T5 being the last Outpost as an invincible army marches(flies) on, destroying humanity?

Will it be largely humans or do you wish to add other races? What kind of races? What is the technological curve? Are there living heroes of their time? Are there descendants of influential people?

I guess that good vs bad sort of describes what I want. I was considering either having a rebellion in the intergalactic government or an invasion by outside forces and the pirates and IPR are forced to work together to survive.

I'm not sure about other races, I haven't really thought about it. As for technology, I'm just going with the usual lasers, hyperspace, teleporters and everything else you would expect from futuristic sci-fi.

But that's why I wanted input from other people who are interested. I'm pretty good at thinking up locations and settings, but not so much with the actual story.

Hmm I like sci fi, though I'd have to wait until after Christmas to try and tackle a character. My vote is for humans to not be alone in this universe, though maybe more Outlaw Star than Titan A.E. on the extraterrestrial saturation scale.

On the rare chance anyone out there is interested in doing an rp based on 'The Reluctant God' by Pamela F. Service, or 'Sunshine' by Robin McKinley
I am SO on board for that!

Invasion by superior forces, I like that idea. Gets me all tingly and thinking of Battleship Gallactica.

So we are talking classic SciFi, I would suggest a dip into Star Trek TOS or TNG for tech, you get transporters, FTL, turbolifts, forcefields, tractor beams and shields. We can go with lasers, I always enjoyed a good laser battle even though disruptors and phasers are more powerful, but hey can't go wrong with a bit of Star Wars can you?

Well that's my ten cents

I'd be interested. Once you have an idea of a character sheet I can throw a couple together and see what sticks. Or if you'd rather do a narrative style origin story post and keep the stats fast and loose that's cool.

Alright, after some thought I've put together a basic character sheet and an idea for how to start the story.

The story starts following two ships, an IPR military ship and a pirate ship who, just before fighting each other, are engaged by an unknown enemy ship. The IPR ship was doing a routine scouting expedition and is called The Atlanta. The pirate ship is called The Raven. The story will mostly follow the two crews, but plenty of other characters will show up too.

Also, I've decided that I'll start the RP after new years, because I know that some people will be busy over Christmas. Until then I'll let people sort out characters and if anyone has any more ideas for the story then I'm all ears.

NB: If anyone wants to make a non-human character put up a separate post or send me a pm with details on the new species.
