SO, about that New Big Thing

So how elite is this multi-corp platform gonna be?

My immediate question is how we can adjust current lore and characters to this? Everyone with wacky mallcops, runaway soviet tigers and deadbeats who went corporate for the money fits into the bar for entry for working in some shitty multi-utility mining station; but I don't think they would a corperate exploration vessel.

So what exactly the overall-setting idea for the ship so that older characters can tag along? Or are we gonna be making the mature decision to say the level of professionalism reflected in characters needs to raise a bar to get into corperate-NASA?

And are we gonna be making a quasi-copy of Expeditionary Command or make it extremely corp-mix focused with only very few characters representing being picked by a unifying entity? One distinct way to make it less like another Expeditionary Command would be to not have some 'default generic exploration company' organization for everyone, just literally the highest non-departmental command staff.

If we use "Stick up arse" as a measure of elitism, then I want to shoot for "Just the tip up arse". Going any higher would get us towards a silly strict RP environment that probably isn't beneficial for RP. How exactly lore will achieve this is up to lads like @kyres1, tho.

Loreman told me that there'll be an automated support fleet attached to the vessel. To include a cryosleep ship. So the people will live there.

I would have some more questions there (and more in general that came up recently) but as they all are more setting than mechanics related they probably should wait for now untill something more concrete is set up. But as long as the Loreteam is also integrated in the development process, my concerns are not as big.

Kyres (deputy leaderman of loremen) is actually one of the larger drivers for this enterprise.

Do we intend to have rounds switch between the Aurora Station and the Aurora Vessel? Or would we move completely to the vessel? Also, can't wait to have Breacher G-XXX actually breach things.

No map switching. Map rotation and rp are bad juju. So once we go ship, we're staying ship.

Is the intention for all character to be remade or will it be the deal where your character can move to the ship?

One thing I've been thinking about - will new corporations be written for the NBT's departmental system, or will each department be using the ones we currently have access to? Another thing - will everyone be under the employ of a corporate entity? Right now there are a few roles on Aurora that are independent or government-aligned - consular officers and freelance reporters, in particular, but also visitors and such.

I also want to know about how many characters will need to be remade. Since the Aurora wasn't a ship, we have cultivated the ideas of homes off-base, as it were. Also, the low-skilled laborers might have less incentive to be on the vessel? I'd be sad if I had to scrap my mining child outright, though I am excited to see the new maps.

No new corps are planned, the current ones will be used. Independent roles will likely remain as they are, they're outliers so w/e.

I mean. Someone has to do the low-skilled work? Whether or not your character sees service on a spess-ship as a good career path is ultimately up to you to decide. We cannot make every concession and obviously certain characters that would fit Aurora will not fit the ship. This is inevitable for any major change in setting.

I'm willing to give this a go, at least. I can definitely see all of my characters being able to transfer over.
