New Races/Species
Thu Oct 03, 2013 3:36 pm by Flarezone
As you can see, the choices regarding species is currently very limited. I am currently working on 3-4 other species. However, if any member has an idea feel free to run it by me. These 1st few playable races are probably going to be the most commonly used so lets be original! If any guest has ideas, feel free to submit a thread to the QCIS board.

PostSubject: CHAPTER ONE: Unto the Unknown   Wed Dec 04, 2013 6:44 pm

EARTH ORBIT - SPACE STATION MAGNUS
Magnus Docking Station - 6:30 AM, January 12th, 2648 AD





Its a beautiful morning aboard the Space Station Magnus. A viewing platform at the edge of the docking station revealed the earths surface, scattered with golden lights of from the numerous cities and people that reside there. The docking station was a vast open room with a ceiling fifty feet high and dozens of airlocks leading to different ships that were docked to the station. At the very end of this tunnel like system of airlocks, a single large door could be seen. Above it was a hologram which said S.S.Valor.

One hundred people crowded the dock in front of the entrance to the Valor. Several others stood to the side of the gathering. Watching this historic event take place. In the middle of the crowd was a stage lifted six feet in the air. Two men stood on the platform. One of them was and elderly man, obviously an official who worked on the space station. The other was the captain of the S.S.Valor.

After giving a speech to the crowd about the legacy they would leave behind on their journey he turned towards the captain. Encouraging him to give a speech of his own. The crew looked up at him with anticipation. Knowing full well that it was almost time to board the legendary vessel. Several people tried to shuffle their way through the crowd to get closer, however the senior officers remained untouched at the front of the group.

Anthony stepped into the microphone and began to speak in his gruff but somehow soft tone of voice. The one that his men loved to hear. It was the tone he used to communicate the thoughts of God himself. Or at least, that's how Anthony put it.

"Fellow Terrans, in just a short while, I will be in command of a vessel with the capabilities to travel anywhere in the Galaxy well within the span of my lifetime. On our journeys, we the crew of the S.S. Valor will honorably and courageously uphold the ideals of the human race in unshakeable determination towards its further domination of the cosmos. It is without doubt that we will make contact with hundreds, perhaps thousands of intelligent lifeforms besides we humans, and in those dealings I swear to represent the governments of humanity in asking for peace everlasting and a harmonious living among the astral plane. The Lord as my shepard will lead and guide me in the right course of action to the further prosperity of the human race and all life in the Universe and as long as I shall live, I pledge to follow dutifully his instructions. Humanity, I am your captain. This is your crew. We will not let you down."

Slovak looked at his hands, and a picture of Earth in them. "I didn't think I would be leavin' my home." He thought, while looking at the picture. Slovak looked at the captain while he spoke, he was in one of the many seats assigned for the crew during the speech. Slovak's mind raced, he knew the captain, he was honorable, and humble. Though, he had to follow the chain this time, he couldn't just go straight to the general, he had to go to his CO, the boss before the boss. "Damn...." He thought, "This is gonna be harder than I think." He chuckled softly, and looked at the captain again to focus on the speech.

Zachary stood near the middle, listening silently to the load of bull that was the Captain's speech. More politics. Great. Sadly, because he was in the middle and an officer to boot, there was no way whatsoever for him to sneak away to get on the ship ahead of time. Looking up at a guy in front of him holding a picture, he thanked god most of his family either didn't like him or was dead. Since he had no one to say goodbye too, he had nothing to hold him here. Perhaps that was the excuse Administration was using to get rid of him. But who cares about an old sea dog like me? Other than me, that is. Zachary returned to listening to the speech and waiting for the order to board the Valor. He had things to do.

After the captain had completed his speech a great cheer arose among the crew. It was only a couple more minutes before a voice was heard over the intercom within the docking station. It was the voice of a women, official and with confidence. "We will now begin boarding the S.S.Valor. Please proceed to your crew quarters. Its location is be posted at the bottom of your ticket." There was a rush of sound as crew members collected their carry on bags and one by one began entered the massive vessel. The commanding officers were the 1st to board along with the next level of command. "Commanding Officers, please report to the bridge after finding your rooms. Keep in mind, all officers quarters are located on level A, near the top of the ship. Refreshments will be supplied in the officers break room."

(KEEP IN MIND)
You are welcome to describe the ship as you please, however don't contradict one another. Build on what the person before describes. Remember this is a six mile long vessel with a crew of just over a hundred people.

Captain DeCasanova walked with his hands together behind his back, slumped forward, unlit pipe in his mouth so he could chew on the stem. He was the first to arrive at his quarters and he had no bags to leave. He had packed nothing. Everything he needed was provided for him. Six work uniforms, plus one dress uniform. A small armory of gauss pistols supplied by request, three to be exact. Everything else was bland and boring space age monotony. The rooms were white and the walls were made of plastic and sloped up to the walls so as to lead one to feel that they were living in a fishbowl. Anthony had grown used to it. The bed was a queen size with red sheets and a black blanket and pillows. He never understood why they chose that color palette for officer's quarters. He had a small bathroom with shaving cream, tooth paste, and other necessities. And another special creature comfort provided of the captain was a supply of refined quality pipe tobacco and a fully-stocked, but small liquor cabinet.

After he had spent approximately thirty seconds in his room, he took his place on the bridge. First to arrive. He sat down in his chair and looked out the window at the blue and green marble that was Planet Earth. He could've started to wonder when he'd see her again. But that would take too much energy. And he had spent that dealing with the bureaucrats before he finally got on board. He sighed and sank in his chair.

Zachary is one of the last crewmen on, and steps into his rooms, near the edge of the officers quarters, which are marginally larger than the other officer's (exception being the captain), likely due to how he chucked the liquor cabinet out the window (figuratively), leaving a small alcove which he stood his weapons rack up in. His baggage was in the form of an old, beat-to-death metal footlocker with wheels that had a matter compression device inside, allowing a lot of stuff into it. He pulled a few uniforms and some work clothing out, before placing a myriad of weapons into the rack. First came a short sword, a dull sheen adorning the metal. Then his kukri, followed by several other large knives of varying make, before a whetstone finished off the rack. On a special-order pegboard on the wall went The firearms, among them a Jerry-rigged plasma rifle the navy didn't know about yet, twin gauss rifles that looked like SPAS-12 combat shotguns from the 21st century, a photon gun, and several pistols, many of which were absolutely ancient, if powerful, make sand models, most in the form of small rail pistols. And the crown of it all, a massive crossbow made of metal alloys that would put a bolt through several inches of armor plate. Zachary spent a moment gazing at it all and promising to himself to rearrange it later before he did an about-face and strode to the bridge, coming in ahead of everyone but the captain by some miracle or other. He did a quick salute before stepping to the engineering console and looking it over.

Kodiak monitored the security as everyone boarded the ship. He pondered who some of the people were, but Kodiak told himself he would find out later. He put on some sunglasses that looked liked 21st century oklies, but very few people knew what went on inside them. He activated the HUD on them, which popped up al in blue. Evrything on the HUD had a designation. Each made his job easier. First, he sent a message to the captain, saying "All aboard sir." He then went on to the armory, where he made sure everything was still in place. The armory to Kodiak was nothing. At West Point, it was near a mint station, and by God, was the Armory there prepared for an all-out siege. Kodiak went on to his quarters to where he dropped his carry-on off at. While doing so, he begn to think "The Adventure begins."

It was about half an hour before the entire crew was prepared to leave. The commanding officers made their way to the bridge. Shaking hands with each other and giving introductions. After it was done the commanding officers sat in their specific chair. All in a semi-circle with the two helmsman up front and the captain on an elevated podium behind the semi-circle. Meanwhile, the majority of the crew had entered the entertainment sector on level. A massive lounge with a bar and a dozen or so Holo T.V. with just about every recorded program on Earth. Even an arcade center and pool table, everything the crew could possibly want for a long journey. A voice echoed throughout the ship as the captain said his final words before activating the tunnel drive.

"Will the crew please prepare to enter hyperspace (I assume that's what they call the space between the two exits of the tunnel). I have never captained a ship with such a device, but here's what my chief science officer tells me. You make experience nausea at first and you may develop a headache building pressure behind your eyes. We have plenty of aspirin and plenty of wastebaskets. Use them as you see fit." Anthony then turned off the intercom.

He turned to the first helmsman, "give us 80% impulse power."

He looked at the second helmsman, "Open the tunnel, if you please, sir."

The crewmen pressed several buttons and slid some dials around to comply with the captain's request.
