I'm interested in playing a medic...but what kind of equipment would she carry? This being set in the future; what kind of medical supplies would be normal? And would she be armed?

Let's see. She would definitely be armed, since they're a fighting unit first and foremost. And as for the equipment she'd be carrying, I could probably whip up a list of some fancy things for her to bring. But basically, it would be the same as a modern day team medic carries with him, although more futuristic; first aid kit, and a small bag containing surgical tools, random medicine for various common ailments (depending on what planet they're on). A more complete list of what a medic would most likely carry, you can see here, as an example of what real-life SWAT medics carry with them: http://www.specialoperations.com/Domest ... medic.html

You may of course go sci-fi crazy and invent your own medical gear if you want to. In fact, I encourage it. :D

And it should also be noted that while she's not likely to carry it all with her in the field, she'll probably have more extensive medical equipment on the "base". It will be a forward operations base, a small camp that doesn't have access to any real doctors, so she'll probably be taking up that position as well when they're not on any mission.

Edit to add: If you want to go really crazy with the stuff, Here's a better link with military medical equipment. XD

Refering to medical equipment, you could probably use bio-foam. It is a foam that comes in a can that can be sprayed into a wound, it closes the wound off, along with numbing it and also being a disinfectant. The wound still needs wrapped off, but once biofoam is applied, you don't do anything except let it be until surgery is available. Also, there could be organ flash cloning, like in halo. If a persons (insert organ here) fails, as long as it isn't the brain or the heart, it can be replaced with a flash clone copy.
That is if the Dungeons master/Game master allows it.

That's what it's called! I remember seeing bio foam in the movie Serenity, but I didn't know what it was called! It's an awesome idea, and I wholeheartedly support using that. As for organ flash cloning, before I say yes to that, I'll have to do a bit more research to see if it fits into the universe. But since this RP is going to be in the same spirit as Halo (among others), I don't think that will be a problem either. I'll let you guys know when I've decided. :D

Oh, and Dendramon, I like your character a lot, and he's basically accepted. But could you expand a bit on his history before I accept him? Thanks. :D

Edit to add: After very quick deliberation, and studying of the idea of flash cloning, I'll allow it, under the same prerequisites as in the Halo universe. You can read about the process here:

I updated the history a bit, basing it slightly off of a friend of mine. Minus growing up in the 24th century. I will update it more if needed, but that is pretty close to everything I can add. As i said, I have an AI. I will name him/her later, It will probably be 'female'. No idea what name i will use, definitely not using cortana.
EDIT: http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Cryonics
Is it real, doc?

Yeah, it'll do fine. :D I would have preferred to see the character have some military background, but this might actually work out better as it is. He'll have received combat training from SG when he was recruited anyways. Welcome aboard! :D

In regard to cryonics, I think our policy should be that it is possible, but there is no need to use it during travels because of the advancement of FTL (Faster Than Light tavel) technology. But, we'll say that it is still commonly used on many older types of ship with less advanced FTL drives, so we'll have the choice to decide whether to use it or not on every trip SRC Team Nine makes. :D

Damn, you come up with new questions faster than I have time to reply. XD

As for that one, I'm going to say the tech does exist, but isn't used by SG because they use hovercrafts to deploy their personnel into combat zones (sort of like helicopters á la Vietnam War movies). But you never know what kind of new technology SG might equip their forces with in due time. XD

What exactly would a Intelligence Specialist/Alien Languages Translator do in the roleplay?

The idea of an intelligence specialist/alien language translator is partly what it sounds like, a translator. But he's more diverse than that; He's also an intelligence specialist, an interrogator (going so far, if necessary, as torture expert), radio/communications specialist, spy, and de facto a diplomate if necessary. :D

And, naturally, like the rest of the team, he's also an elite soldier and lean, mean, fighting machine. ;)

Depends on the roleplay. ;) But for this one, I'll say anime is allowed, but try and keep it to the "realistic" kind of anime. :D
