A Step to the Stars(OOC, Open)

Recommended Posts

Whatever the future holds, we will face it with our heads high, minds open, and wings spread.

 

Plot:

Many, many years ago the world which would go by many names was formed and upon it life evolved. First small microbes, and from there it snowballed: plants, birds, dinosaurs, mammals, humans, and even the legendary dragon. Two races, one the dragons, the other humans, lived in peace on this Earth for a short period.

 

However as humans evolved, they became so aggressive towards dragons that they killed off everyone they could find, the surviving ones going deep into caves, jungles, volcanoes, and deserts to hide from the humans. Years pass, the dragons turn into nothing more than myths and legends told to the wondering eyes of children at bedtime. The humans built up the world and named it 'Earth.'

 

Then something happened. Maybe a virus, or a war, or something not of this world. All the humans were gone. No bones left, no straggling survivors, no human life.

 

Slowly dragons began to emerge from their hiding spots, laying eggs and raising hatchlings, living in peace. Dragons began to read, write and study. Some gained skills and began to invents technology suited to dragons. It was a wonderful time.

 

Fast forward to present day:

 

The world named Draco (formerly called 'Earth') is covered in a mix of large, clean cities, pretty forests, thick jungles, hot deserts, deep oceans and high mountains. Now, just like humans, they look to the stars asking questions which, unlike the humans that had tried to wipe them out, they intend to answer.

 

The last nation died out in the year 2701 AE (After Emergence) after it was reasoned that having Draco divided was asking for trouble. No matter where you live or what breed you are, you are accepted for who and what you are. Some tensions still exist between certain breeds due to the fact that some just don't get along, but for the most part everything is working fine.

 

The government is what a human could call a Constitutional Monarchy. A dragon is selected to lead the country as a King or Queen but the rest of dragon kind still gets voice in how Draco is run.

 

You, a dragon of Draco, have been recruited by the Galactic Exploration League (also known as GEL) to be in the crew of first Draconian Space Explorer Ship (DSES) Constellation. There are many reasons why you were recruited, but no matter what the reason, you are about to embark on a journey which no dragon has ever done before.

 

Setting:

This will be set on Earth and the spaceship Constellation. The ships star named Jui, surveyed from Draco to possibly have a planet capable of supporting life outside the solar system.

 

The Ship:

The Constellation was built in the year 2867 AE by GEL. Its plans first made over a 100 years previous, going through various upgrades and changes as asteroid mining technology allowed Draco to mine metals without harming their home planet. It is currently the only ship which is capable of going out of the solar system.

 

It is powered by a fusion reactor, its fuel, hydrogen, is easily collected by 'nets' made of special force fields.

 

The ship is divided into three sections:

 

Control: This section is where all the personnel that run the defenses, steer, and the police force stay. Civilians are not allowed into this section unless with an escort and on orders from an officer.

 

Civilian: This section is where the scientists, their labs, the food and the fun is located. The labs are guarded at all times to prevent those without access (military personnel of low ranks, government officials, etc.) from entering.

The food is grown in this section, fruits, nuts and plants are grown in hydroponics with a special rooms for insects. Meat like chicken, beef, and pork is stored in vast freezers, kept at the perfect temperature to keep it from spoiling. Fish are kept and grown in special vats of water, they are a 'last resort' for all dragons that do not naturally eat plants or fish. these specially bred fish contain almost all the nutrients needed for most dragons to survive. They are maintained by underwater dragons and Seawyrm Pygmies.

The entertainment is often the place where a crew member can go to relax. The computer's memory is loaded with various books and games which can be played. Physical games like cards and even board games are located in what is called the library. 'The Gathering Place' is a place where a dragon can go to enjoy a meal and chat with out dragons. There are rumors of gambling operations run out of this section, but they are just rumors, nothing more.

 

Medical:

The Medical Section is exactly what you think, the place you go if you get sick. Even though all dragons are required to get immunizations and be healthy before the ship leaves, there is always something which makes it aboard. Not to mention the fact that despite the best attempts at the designers of the ship, it is not child-proofed. The Constellation can still kill with electrical malfunctions or a myriad of other things. (After all it is a space ship, space is not the safest place a dragon could be.) Of course the crew members could still fight from time to time, but this is could result in severe punishment.

 

 

The passages of the Constellation are big enough to most dragon breeds to pass with comfort. So the ship is quite large as a result.

 

There are sleeping/living areas aboard that could fit most dragons' needs. A sandy room for desert, a hot misty room with hammocks for the jungle, a colder room for alpine, and a normal room with a soft breeze and green/brown walls for the forest.

 

Through out the ship there are passages of water that are well protected for those breeds that cannot live without water. There is limited room in these watery passages so the number of dragons that have to stay in the water is low, but ones that can transition back and forth between land and water are always welcomed to use the water passages. These water passages connect to key points in the ship. The shuttle bay, the bridge, the medical section and the entertainment. Their sleeping area is mostly just a pool of water with a little bit of beach.

 

How the dragons control the Constellation.

Their technology is made for them. The buttons and levers are larger and more indestructible and usually fire/water proof. They often do not sit in seats unless they are a breed which is medium to small sized. Voice commands can be used for simple functions such as asking a dragon to come a see another or telling the computer to run a check of its systems.

 

Rules:

1. You may use only DC breeds.

2. No chickens, no dinosaurs, no vampires, no zombies, no leetle trees.

3. Pygmies, drakes, and even sea dragons are allowed.

3a. keep in line with dragon breed personalities. There will not be a shy, nice Hellfire or an evil White.

4. You may have up to two characters, one may be high-ranking, the other must be low.

4a. You may use rare dragons, even one like Frilled, but if too many people are signing up as golds or or Magma dragons, I will start to put caps of how many of each breed is allowed.

4. No God-Modding (Excessive control of other characters, killing off without permission, etc.)

5. No Meta-Gaming (If I tell you something OOC, you cannot use it IC unless given permission)

6. No killing off other people's characters without asking

7. You may not just magically invent something. So no uber-lazar knives please.

8. If something seems out of place, ask

9. Minimum of three sentences per post

10. Have fun!

My Forms:

 

Name: StellarNight

Age: 142 years

Gender: Female

Breed: Nebula

Position: Captain

Link: http://dragcave.net/lineage/xYGnj

Personality: A mysterious dragon to most of her crew, she carries herself calmly and with a certain pride. She is smart, knowing just about everything there is to know about the ship she commands, however she does rely on her subordinates when necessary. When with her senior officers, she is often pleasant to talk to, but no one takes this kindness for granted. She is willing to doll out punishment for those that break the rules.

Other: She likes to eat mice and birds.

She also has a leetle tree in her daycabin named Audrey, (though no one knows why its named Audrey.)

 

Name:Mist's Under(Just called Mist)

Age: 50 years

Gender: Male

Breed:Dark Myst Pygmy

Position: Engineering Petty Officer

Link: http://dragcave.net/lineage/Oj3FA

Personality: Mist is a chipper little guy who always tries to stay positive. Despite being small, he is great to hang out with. He uses his small size to wedge into places that most normal dragons could not fit. This makes him a perfect engineer for the smaller things aboard the Constellation. Bigger dragons do have to be careful not to step on him, as he is sometimes hard to see since he's black.

Other:

He likes to drink hot cocoa. Too much and he'll get sick.

I've made some of the changes Soupnazi. I haven't finished the ship description yet, but I'll get it done soon. I also don't want to go much deeper into the setting beyond the star name because I still want there to be some surprise for the RPers when the ship gets there.

 

Thanks for your input, it was really helpful.

Hello RPers, guess what?

 

I finally made the IC, now all that needs to be done is for it to be moved from the Unapproved section to here!

Oh hey, I thought I made add something really quick. Some people may not know what each rank does or stand for. It might help if there was a short description on what each rank does. That may help people who are new to this certain section of Syfy understand the RP itself better. Also, on an unrelated note, you wouldn't of happen to base this RP on some Syfy show or game?

Oh, thats a good idea, I'll put an explanation of ranks in the first post as soon as I can.

 

And as for your question, it isn't really based off any one series. In fact it isn't based off really anything. While our ship won't be like Star War ships it'll still make good time. So if you see any sci-fi references... then I must of run out of original ideas. tongue.gif

I'm still pretty new, so sorry for any mistakes I might make... But this looks like a brilliant plot!

 

Form: Zanzibar79

Name: Sparks Thunderwing

Age: 79

Gender: Female

Breed: Electric Dragon

Position: Engineering Officer

Link: Spark's Lineage

Personality: Sparks is mature, naturally curious, and loves inventing things. She is passionate and often tends to make rash decisions, though she is quite smart. When it comes to machines anyway. Living things tend to confuse her.

Other: Sparks is an intelligent dragon, and knows most machine designs like the back of her paw. She is also an inventor, and is usually found tweaking some random [and usually completely useless] invention.

Once, when she actually tried to get to know somebody - her mate and father of Dusk, Yokonoki - he died soon after she laid their egg. Since then, she's never really tried to fit in anymore. Easier to just stay and fiddle with machines, then risk being hurt again.

 

Name: Dusk Sunrest

Age: 36

Gender: Male

Breed: Sunset Dragon

Position: Tactical Officer

Link:Dusk's Lineage

Personality: Dusk is almost the opposite to his mother in every way, except that they're both intelligent individuals, her being knowledgable with machines, him with other dragons. He is an interesting character, always having a smile on his face, but seeming to be rather distant most of the time. That said, he is friendly, quite unlike most of his breed and quite polite and courteous as well.

Other: Dusk got his job mainly because he is a brilliant strategist. He is very good at working out what others are thinking, and can usually work a way out, around, or through any problem.

Age: 134

Gender: F

Breed: Black

Position: Government Liasion

Link: http://dragcave.net/lineage/MS2W

Personality: Florence is reserved character. She prefers to keep to herself, and hates when others get overly excited around her, but isn't necessarily mean. She only speaks when spoken to and in rare instances to comment on a situation, more often opting to observe rather than offer input. Despite her outward personality, she is very compassionate and empathetic towards younger dragons who have yet to find their way.

Other: meep
