"It's beautiful. Looks so different from up here." "Let's hope it won't be sterilised by nuclear fire by the time we're back." "Heh, yeah." The crew of the GDSV [i]Explorer[/i] was standing in the large 'observation' deck, if it could be called that. It was essentially a room utilizing hologram- and other video-technology to project pictures of space around the ship into this room so one could watch it without the ship being in the way. A magnificent sight, standing with a few friends above earth, like gods. This vessel was the most advanced construction ever made by human technology and industry, an exploration vessel of the highest quality. A few minutes later, an announcement sounded through the ship. "Ladies and Gentlemen, please prepare yourself. The mission will start in ten minutes with the start of the main engines. I remind you again that there is plenty to do on the ship; We've got about 2080 hours of movies, each of you have his own music collection as well as a few books on board. Exercising areas are available, you know where. If you feel wrong, consult either our psychologists Matthias Erchenbald and Haresh Sharma, or our doctors Johann Genzwürker and Park Janggeum. We'll also be in continuous contact with HQ on the Kanzler Bismarck, even if it may take minutes to hours for a response, depending on how far we are away. If this mission is a success, it'll be a thriumph for all of mankind." Ten minutes later, the powerful VASIMR drive of the ship ignited, accelerating it away from Earth and towards its first destination: Mars. ________________________ [center][url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/Lynneth_del_Serpentas/AE/CNRP/Bayern/GDR/East_Germany_Coat.png"][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/Lynneth_del_Serpentas/AE/CNRP/Bayern/GDR/th_East_Germany_Coat.png[/img][/url] [url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/Lynneth_del_Serpentas/AE/CNRP/Bayern/GDR/East_Germany_Flag.png"][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/Lynneth_del_Serpentas/AE/CNRP/Bayern/GDR/East_Germany_Flag.png[/img][/url] [url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/Lynneth_del_Serpentas/AE/CNRP/Possible/1269292414145.jpg"][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/Lynneth_del_Serpentas/AE/CNRP/Possible/th_1269292414145.jpg[/img][/url] "Today is a great day for all of mankind, Ladies and Gentlemen. It is such a day because the first spaceship dedicated to exploration has begun its long mission towards Mars, and later to Jupiter. The German Democratic Space Vessel [i]Explorer[/i] began its journey away from the space station [i]Kanzler Bismarck[/i] into the depths of space. Let us wish them the best, for they are the vanguard of Man's studies of space."[/center] OOC: I suck at good speeches. Anyone wanna write one for me? Also, this is a semi-open RP. You can participate by sending me a PM with your character, position, rank and name as well as some background. All are citizens of the GDR, but numerous ethnicies are possible, including but not limited to: German, French, Italian, Slovene, former Nordic, Japanese, Korean, Singaporean, Magyar/Hungarian, Croat. Rank can be found here: [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Army_rank_insignia"]German Army ranks[/url] - nothing above [i]Major[/i], as the commander of the mission is [u]Oberstleutnant[/u]. Astronaut positions are here: [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronaut_ranks_and_positions"]Clicky[/url] - use those from the space shuttle, though others can and will be added. The ship has 45 people on board. If nobody wants to participate, I'll just write it on my own. :3 Edited May 3, 2010 by Lynneth Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
