Introduction

In the final hours of Earth a few people are saved. Supposedly the best and brightest or perhaps it's just those lucky enough who are brought aboard a ship. This ship is an unknown origin nor are its reasons for saving just the handful of people it does. What is known fairly quickly is the ship has an intelligence of it's own and it has it's own reasons for saving those people.

We are to set out and explore the galaxy, maybe meet new friends along the way, maybe destroy ourselves and our new home in the process. The war was bad on Earth, and so arriving on the ship is a little bit of a blur for most, and a mystery to others. As a crew we must come together to ensure we survive, forge allies and make friends. We may end up making a few enemies as well.

I would like to see this become an active and wide Universe, there will be limited restrictions, aside from the advanced technology of the ship, technology in the crews possession will be at today's standards, the crew will be mostly ordinary folk caught in an extraordinary ride for survival. There may be Military folk aboard, that's for you to decide as you join and decide on your story. Maybe your a politician? Maybe a High School Nerd? Who knows as long as you have a reason for being chosen or an idea as to why you'd be useful, no super intelligence! We're just average Joe in a strange fight to continue the human race.

I personally will take up the Engineer, not a clue as to how or why he was chosen only that he was, perhaps he has hidden depths to be revealed later. I would like the chosen captain to be female, of course your background story is your own to write.

It will start with us waking up on the ship, and that’s where we go from. I also plan to have an accompanying Google Doc for characters to write up Journal Entries and keep track of key events as they unfold. I don't plan to write with any real restrictions content wise, I never do that's what the editing process is for. An open mind is a definite must for this particular project.

Toggle Rules

1) All Characters must Start with their arrival post, awaking on the ship. The rest is your own choice.
2) If you start on the ship you're human.

Alex stirred his head aching as he stretched he yelped his hand striking something hard between him and the end of his stretch. Slowly he sat, the room was dull, a strange purple and black haze covered the walls. He slid to his knees and looked around more, a fair amount of space, a block raised off the ground in the corner, had it had a mattress it may have been mistaken for a bed.

He stood now moving to inspect the wall, it was in-fact it seemed some kind of matter, definitely not a metal of any kind. He stepped away now looking around, suddenly the illumination in the room increased startling him a little.

"What in the ..." He muttered "I should be, in hell maybe?"

"You are not," Replied a voice

Alex suddenly felt a sense of dread tumble through him, he looked for the direction of the voice and yet it eluded him.

"So I am?" He started, as he did so a portion of the wall began to slide away revealing the scene beyond. The vast darkness beyond wasn't hard to figure out he was on a ship, in space! He felt his heart skip a beat or two now as he edged toward the new hole in the wall. He noted there seemed to be no glass, but the air wasn't rushing out along with his body. A grey sphere was slowly beginning to slip into view as Alex looked on.

"Is that?"

"Earth"The voice replied "Or what remains, just over two hours and seven minutes ago a global event destroyed all life as you knew it, the surface is now irradiated beyond the human tolerance and is no longer habitable by your species,"

"So you saved all one of us," He sighed darkly "And what did I do to deserve your mercy?"

"I was able to transfer approximately 100 of your species aboard, they are currently also in the process of adjusting to their fate. For the moment I am keeping them confined to their chambers, you on the other hand I require your assistance to repair damage to several of my systems to make life aboard me viable for you all" The voice replied.

The door to Alexs' chambers slid open now revealing a corridor beyond. He made his way to the door and looked out, the corridor was made of the same material as his quarters. It didn't take much for him to come to the conclusion that this material was in fact the very hull of the ship. He placed his hand against it and could a warmth, he looked back into his quarters now.

"So where are you? Who are you?" He stated finally addressing the most pressing question on his mind.

"I am,"The voice paused "Everywhere,"

"That answers that then," He muttered darkly

"I am the ship, I serahneslaniska, so they say," The voice replied firmly "I am what you consider an artificial intelligence, except I did not start this way. I was humanoid once, those that built this ship needed a mind to power it,and the rest we will get to," The ship replied

"So... Sarah, what is it you need me to do?"Alex replied deciding to tackle one thing at a time, and it was clear that time would be a factor to them.

Panels in the wall would glow leading Alex through the ship, as he followed he tried to take some kind of mental map. It didn't take long until a door opened to a box he could only assume was a lift of some kind, as he stepped in the door closed behind him and the box hummed in reply despite it feeling like it wasn't moving.

A few moments later the door slid open and the lights continued to lead him forward. Alex followed silently for a way more before the door opened to a mass of swirling panels and a huge circular device in the centre that pulsed with energy.

"This is my singularity core, all my power is derived from this point, however there is an issue in my relay systems hat is preventing me getting power to some areas of the ship. I only have sub light engines and the shields are barely holding back the radiation spill from Earth." Sarah began as he watched the swirl and pulse of the core before him.

"Not really sure how you'd expect me to fix technology I have no clue about," Alex replied softly "You are so far beyond us"

A moment passed and a panel beside him flashed, a schematic of the ship and then faded into the power distribution systems, as he looked them over it wasn't long before he found the pattern. As he looked over display before pointing to various points, the panel beeped and red lines slowly began to go green.

"Whilst in orbit I had a chance to scan your internet and convert some of my issues into a method you could understand, I am happy that you are able to correct my power issues, I am now re-routing power through the proposed relays." Sarah stated firmly.

Inside the Crew Quarters were several cryogenic sleep-pods. Inside one of them was Mitsy Sayato. Now, she was waking up.

First the ice thawed out. Then she blinked. Finally, the pod doors opened. Trying to climb out, Mitsy slipped and fell to the floor, scraping her arm on the door in the process.

Damn it. That's going to leave a scar.
Mitsy said as she got up, slow and steady. She looked around, wondering where she was.

Well, this ain't no film set. But where is everyone?
Mitsy thought as she put her coat on. Being inside the sleep-pod made her cold. She looked around and saw a window with blackness. As she looked through the window, she saw a planet with a barren wasteland. She suddenly realised that the planet she was looking at was Earth.

Backing away from the window, Mitsy was shocked at what she saw. She tried to reassure herself that everything would be alright.

Ok Mitsy. The world is gone, family is possibly dead and I'm on a fucking spaceship. I'm probably one of the last humans alive. But how did I get here?
She said to herself. She thought for a minute on what she should do, before deciding that it wasn't worth waiting for the other pods to open. She walked to the door, opened it and went to explore the ship.

"You need to hurry Alex, the others are beginning to wake, the ones from their cryogenics are beginning to wake too" Sarah stated firmly causing Alex to look up from the panel.

"How long before life support is no longer viable?" Alex asked quickly now whipping through the various screens, each time he skimmed over the information, reading the readouts became just a little bit easier for him "Your synaptic uplink is now stable, we have approximately 21 hours of life support remaining"

Alex scratched his head in thought for a few moments now "If we can't re-route life support, can't you rebuild it? You said you have the ability to build as we need it, we only need new passage ways for the air to flow, then we can cannibalise the current life support systems to keep us alive."

"This is an acceptable solution,it will take seven hours and nine minutes to build the new vents," Sarah replied, Alex nodded and made his way toward the door "Good then I need to head to Environmental, is it safe now?"

"Hello Mitsy, please remain calm and for the moment follow the illuminated segments to your personal quarters, we have an engineer working on a small environmental issue, we hope to have this corrected soon" The voice stated softly to the newly awoken Mitsy.

"This is for your own safety,"

Hearing the voice, Mitsy stopped. It knew who she was. But how? Maybe the voice knew why she was brought onto this ship. Maybe it could explain why she was saved.

Hello? Who's there? If you can hear me, please tell me who you are. I'm just curious in knowing where am I, or why I was brought here.
She called out to the voice, hoping for a reply.

"My name is ... I was dubbed Sarah by Engineer Alex, repairs are almost complete and all will become clear," Sarah replied "Earth was destroyed but I was able to bring those with the highest likelihood to survive aboard, a total of 148 people. Currently you may assign your own duties based on your own skills"

The lights flickered for a brief moment before a low hum was heard, the air beginning alter a little as Environmental system repairs were completed. "Primary systems are now on-line, lock down will end in 90 seconds"

Engineer Alex? Who are you talking about? Another survivor?
Mitsy asked Sarah, curiously wondering if there were more humans on board the Vampirica.

You mentioned duties. Is there anything I could do to help around here?
Mitsy asked the AI, wondering if it had any jobs that Mitsy could do.

"Our Engineer is currently in Main Engineering, please follow the guidance lights," Sarah replied. "But yes there are others currently on-board, though only you and Alex are currently awake."

The lights in the wall flickered and began flashing in a direction forward through the corridors, intended to lead Mitsy to Alex.

"Currently we require key personnel, a Navigator, a Science Officer, and a Tactical Officer" Sarah replied to the second part of Mitsy' inquiry now.

  1. Quick Question: What year did the world end in the RP?

To be honest, I'm not sure I'm cut-out for any of those openings. I mean, I did some mapping of the stars as a young girl, and although I kept the maps I made, they were probably destroyed with Earth's destruction. Unless you somehow got my possessions onto the ship.
Mitsy jokingly said to Sarah, laughing as well. Then she stopped. The AI probably wouldn't understand human behaviour.

So, you'd like me to meet this "Alex"? Just so you know, I had a boyfriend. But he's dead, so I don't really care. I'll just go and meet this engineer of yours.
Mitsy said. She hoped that Sarah wouldn't try and get Alex and her together.

"All humans who were brought aboard, I was able to retrieve possessions based on home data in their communication devices, all possessions and more are stored in the cargo hold, access however is currently restricted, until repairs are complete. Perhaps you would be more comfortable cataloguing your travels, ensuring the crew are happy and recording their thoughts?" Sarah replied

Alex was staring blankly at the screen, having somehow managed to cobble most of the repairs together, the last one was going to require him to get seriously creative.

"This last one can't be remotely Sarah, I'm going to need direct access to the power grid down there, on the upside environmental is stable, has anyone else woken yet? What are your current power levels?" Alex asked into the air while remaining to stare at the huge red void of power toward the aft of the ship.

"One and she is currently on her way to speak with you, she seems confused as to my intentions in sparing those I have,"Sarah replied

"Dragging a hundred plus humans from the planet, a willing to save the race? I'm sure your intent was to spare us being cooked alive, but not everyone is going to adjust well Sarah. We weren't made to be up here like this, not yet. We aspired to it, but we weren't there yet, we just need to refocus her attention."Alex's voice was quiet a train of thought more to himself than an actual answer.

"Human behaviour is erratic, and unpredictable," Sarah replied.

Alex laughed softly and nodded "Aye we are a strange breed that's for sure, so back to my original question"

"To access those levels you will need to enter a Zero-G environment, currently this is not possible" Sarah replied.

Alex stared at the screen and sighed "Of course it isn't, the power conduits to that section are external and that's why I cant access them from here,"

Re: Last Hope for Humanity

Are you still taking characters? I would love to get in on this.

Last Hope for Humanity

Welcome to The Last Hope for Humanity. Something I've been toying with for a while, I wanted a universe that was infinite in scope yet fairly easy to begin with. So what easier way than killing off the entire human race? Well almost, save for those lucky enough to be plucked up by an unknown ship in orbit of Earth right as Nuclear War hits.

The rules for this will be simple, and likely evolve as we get further away from earth or deeper into each story? We're human, and if you start on the ship you're human too? Or a dog or a cat (maybe there's a way to evolve them hidden on the ship?). See my simple equation is already evolving.

All positions are up for grabs and are not limited except the Captain MUST be female,this is a deliberate design decision I will reveal much much later. I will create a forum for "Personal Logs" every one is free to keep one, let's see how the day to day of a character is different from their interactive actions.
