I'm leaving this off the filter so I can recruit nanowrimo
I've sent our solar system's first generation ship out into space, heading towards Alpha Centauri. They will be acting as an exploratory team as well, leaving their findings for the rest of humanity to eventually retrieve.
So this first ship has a higher scientific population, but it's also going to be a self-sufficient ship with three separate habitats (temperate, tropical rainforest, and taiga). I'm hoping you guys can help me determine what kinds of people absolutely have
to be on the ship. I'm hoping to keep the initial population somewhere between 150-200 members, with genetic diversity helped via fertility banks.
The main space agency is ISACC, which is like a merger between NASA, ESA, RKA, and the military. A high percentage of crew is ISACC. Everyone is required to help outside their field to keep the ship running properly, so there's often some overlap. People with many proficiencies or artistic/cultural hobbies (music, dance, theatre, etc.) were preferred. Some folks get spaces due to sponsorship/political ties/cultural significance (for instance, a few people from the remaining royal families/native tribes/religious minorities/etc.) Crew comes from: Earth (much of which is still healing from nuclear holocaust), Luna (several colonies), L1 (the first satellite colony), and a few actually grew up on the ship, Akupara, which had to spend several decades proving self-sufficiency in orbit before it was okayed for departure.
Here's my current list of people on the ship. Please make suggestions (or corrections) if you have anything to add. Thanks for your help!( Collapse )
