Welcome aboard the SSA Isolation.

Thanks to your unique skill set you have been selected for a possible position aboard our new state of the art exploration and scientific research vessel.

Please be assured that as a result of the incident with Isolation's sister ship, all safety protocols have now been updated and there is
virtually no chance of the coaxial induction drive suffering from a cascade failure.

Please submit your applications below.



So, a play by post forum RPG? I'm going to be a little stricter than JarPG but not a lot, just say if you want to play, I'll give people a day or two random amount of time to register interest and then we'll see what happens.

All cadets at the Academy undergo a broad range of training which gives them a solid grounding in all the fields that may be necessary on a shipboard mission. However, at higher levels it becomes necessary to specialise in a subject area based on your future shipboard role.

Please specify your desired training path:


  • Command
    • A good commander must understand all the roles aboard ship well enough to delegate them to other people.
    • A small improvement to all skills.
  • Tactical
    • There are times when confrontation is unavoidable and a ship's weapons must be brought to bear.
    • A significant improvement to ship combat skills (gunnery, shields, maneuverability).[/i]
  • Operations
    • The day to day operation of a vessel can be an unappreciated but essential role.
    • A significant improvement to general ship operation skills (communications, scanners, navigation).
  • Security
    • Despite excellent remuneration and a dental plan, crew members can be disgruntled and require a stay in the brig.
    • A significant improvement to personal combat skills (shooting, fighting, etc).
  • Engineering
    • Even with the high level of quality control in all our manufacturing, things can and do go wrong.
    • A significant improvement to engineering skills (analyse, repair, modify).
  • Medical
    • In space no one can hear you scream, but aboard ship they can and will direct you to the nearest sickbay.
    • A significant improvement to medical skills (diagnosis, first aid, surgery).

You let out a groan as you struggle up to your feet, a florescent light overhead flickers and sparks irregularly. Looking around you can see your companions in much the same condition, no one seems to be seriously hurt, just disoriented and confused.

Previously...

As the star students of your class you have been handpicked to be taken on a tour of the SSA Isolation, it's nearing completion and should be ready for launch in the next few months; your first assignment will most likely be on one of the local runabout vessels but this tour is intended to show you the kind of ship you could one day aspire to serve aboard.

Commander Halbert has already shown you the state of the art medical bay, next on your itinerary is the new matter transmission platform. On route you pass a few other groups of cadets on similar tours, all of them seem to be very excited.

Commander Halbert drones on about the new experimental assisted computer core which supposedly means that even a skeleton crew could operate the Isolation for short periods of time; finally you reach the matter transmission room where Commander Halbert starts explain how this kind of device will be useful for deploying and retrieving scientific equipment from asteroids, planets and so forth.

Suddenly the lights dim and shift to an amber colour, pulsing slowly in time with an background siren. The Commander flips open his data device and taps the screen a few times before putting it away.

"Cadets, nothing to worry about, it seems there's been a small incident on one of the other decks. I just need to check that nothing has been damaged, stay here and don't touch anything."

The Commander promises he’ll be back in a few minutes before heading out of the room.

Now…

That’s the last thing you remember properly, the Commander had been gone for just a few minutes and you suddenly felt sick to the bottom of your stomach before fainting.

What am I wearing, what tools do I have at my disposal, am I carrying the same type of device as the commander?

In case I do have the same type of device, I would like to figure out if I can call someone, and ask whats going on, or read some information.
I don't lie about stuff like that.

All of you are wearing standard jumpsuits in appropriate colours for your speciality. Although you recognise the device the Commander was using as a GADGET (GADGET Adaptable Dynamic General Electronic Tool) you don't have one on you; since the Isolation is still largely classified all electronic devices were taken off you.

However, since you are looking there is a fairly standard looking toolbox in the room (looks like work has been going on here recently) and there is a computer terminal against one wall.

"Computer: What is the current location of The Captin?"

The engineer, Hutton, approaches the computer terminal on the wall and asks his question, it takes a moment before a jittery synthesised female voice responds.

"No... No... No... senior officer has been... been... been... assigned as Cap... Cap... Captain of the S... S... S... S... S... S... A Isolation."
