    Doomed Galactic Journey (Game Thread)


    Rules are here

    Nobody on the ship had any idea what was about to happen. After the warp was initiated, the activities on the ship began, as if it would be a normal journey.

    Then, at 0600 hrs in the morning, a huge explosion rocked the ship, shaking everything and waking everyone up. The Imperial Guard, which was disorganized by some people sleeping and others being on duty, searched the ship to figure out what had happened, and who was responsible. Unfortunately, they didn’t find a culprit, only the source of the explosion—the Oxygen Generator. It was completely obliterated, and the only oxygen left is held in the Auxiliary Oxygen Tank.

    Then, there was another shock. Colonel Splime was found dead in his office, with his head found separate from the body. The leader of the ship is dead, right when leadership is most needed.

    Spoiler :
    Colonel Splime (NPC) was innocent.


    After everyone gathered in the main dining bay, with some assorted shouting and screaming, a loud robotic voice boomed over the intercom:

    “Automatic Emergency Protocol Systems are Underway… Please remain calm and wait for instructions…

    The Emergency Protocol System requires full cooperation, or action will be taken to deal with problem passengers and crew. As it seems like there is an enemy in our midst, emergency execution voting—“

    Upon hearing the word “execution”, the crowd started shouting and muttering.

    “EXCUSE ME! Every day, there will be a vote to execute someone in an attempt to find the enemy, with time running out. I suppose I should let you all know that the remaining air supplies will not be enough for everyone to survive to reach the colony. Votes against someone must be officially declared (OOC: In Bold) to be valid. If anyone obtains at least one third of all votes, they will be quarantined for a day and a half. Anyone with an absolute majority of the votes (over 50%) will be executed. You may also vote to execute nobody. (OOC: No support votes)

    Also, you may wish to elect a new leader… (OOC: Votes on who should be the new leader should be in bold blue

    When the voice stopped talking, computer screens appeared, revealing the following data:

    Distance to Nova Vlatixa: 400 Space Units
    Distance from Vlatixan Empire: 50 Space Units
    Current Velocity: 35 units per 12 hours towards Nova Vlatixa (approx. 6 days to go)
    Oxygen Remaining: 150 12-hour units

    The Game is Open! Please cast your votes, and roleplay. Night will come in ~48 hours.

    Looking rather shapely in her pale blue jumpsuit, Dr. Barrow strolls gracefully over to a control panel. Reaching out a slender, immaculately-manicured hand, she taps some keys and stares into the monitor screen.

    Hmm...

    She glances around the room at the gathered humans and androids, catching no-one's eye, before returning her attention to the control panel.

    Yes... That's definitely going to be a problem...

    "Oh God *cough* *cough* what a mess. Oh God I've never seen a dead person before. So much blood. So much... What to do. What to do...."

    The teacher was clearly in a state of shock. He made his way to the mess hall, tripping over several containers along the way.

    The entertainer enters, in his most garish, medieval-jester-style garb. As he opens his mouth to begin singing (much to the dismay of most of the humans), he notices the body. Without a word, he seems to deflate, and walks off, drooping.

    Oh just effing great. The one place where Dawn thought she'd finally fit in. Amongst a bunch of weirdos heading out to space. Now? This!

    She keeps her head down so that nobody sees her amber-coloured eyes. Shouts of "burn the witch" would be most unsettling now, mostly because it would take her back to her first couple of years of school. back when before the boys -literally- grew a pair.


    This is insane, she mutters. We are not even going to have a trial? I risked my life and left everyone I knew and loved behind for this? you have got to be kidding me!

    Dr. Renata Tavares Santos flips through a passenger manifest someone has left lying out.

    Paranoid Android, uh huh. Old Geezer. Brewer? I suppose every village must have a brewer, yes ... Culinary Genius? Mentally Unstable Person!?! May I just state for the record that I am not exactly filled with confidence at our crew compliment? Maybe this Freighter Captain person can handle the ship, if he wants it. Are you interested, Mr. Danhavi? If not, I strongly suggest one of the scientists. At least none of us are of ... questionable fitness for running anything bigger than a Cuisinart.

    She joins Winnie at the monitor, peers at it for a moment, then shakes her head.

    A problem? I don't think so. Although -- do androids breathe? I don't think I've ever thought to ask.

    (OOC: Will have more time after the holiday, but will try to keep up until then, assuming no one kills me in the meantime.)

    Benny Lava, the Man coughed quietly in his corner. He didn't like the death of the Captain. No, in fact he didn't like the emergency protocols. "How are we supposed to know if the guy we execute is the bad guy?"

    Thomas rumbled incoherently into the great, shaggy beard he had cultivated to maintain his status as Chief astronomer...

    Great big bloody bother... can't keep an eye on the heavens if people are dying around me.

    Marius let the news sink at first. The Commander was dead and the ship was going into an uncertain future. That'd be a fair lot of trouble...

    "Oi! Charles Li, will ya make us a proper breakfast already? These men and women cannot think on an empty stomach!"
