Yes... exactly. If you took on the part of the Alien First Mate, his(?) name would be the same as your username. Kinda apropos, don't ya think? Not
suggesting that's what you take on or anything. Every post you make could be a private thought, a reply to another, etc.
Sounds like a great idea, though I have no solid contributions to plot at this time
When (and IF) we try this, there'll be a new thread started which sets the stage and names the characters. We can figure out what the overall
scenario is before we begin. First of all, we'd need sufficient numbers of committed characters and 10 sounds like a nice round number.
I've an idea on what the initial situation will be already, but I'm open for suggestions too. It will be, of course, a dicey deal as humans meet
these aliens. There's going to be conflict and potential for disaster sort of along the lines of the TV series 'Lost' meets the movie
I'll watch how things go and perhaps take on the role of the squirrelly, reclusive engineer who keeps an actual cybernetically-enhanced
squirrel as a pet and sleeps in an area exposed to many dangerous fumes
If this is your character, then I'd guess you'd prefer to crew on the human starship. Or is this an alien squirrel you had in mind?
BTW... as far as we've gotten with this, you are now an 'Engineer' in the Opera. You just need to pick a side.
Also, I received a U2U from another who is interested and all I'll say is IF s/he (not giving anything
away) joins, it should be a fun
I think if this is to work, ALL the characters need to log in at least once a week to keep this story 'fluid'.
