What would people think of a sample mission (or maybe even two)? Make a character with a few extra skillpoints to simulate a bit of progress and make it more interesting. I give all the characters set gear, make a single sample mission, and people can play through that.
If all goes well and I end up posting the real game, people can bring in their characters. Albeit with reset skills.

You should really look to the wilderness for your stealth ideas, it has been doing it much longer than you have after all. Take squids for example, that ink trick works pretty well, and in water too! So you just sneak into the dam upsteam, dump several megatons of distressed squid into it, then break the dam. Boom, you suddenly have enough water-proof stealth for a whole city!

Sounds good to me. Only thing I'm wondering is how well this game will handle base support characters. The idea I have in mind is a handler sort who helps coordinate information and supplies and etc.

This sounds a bit like a mix of ER and Rogue Trader. Any further details on ships or tech level?

Aalright, posted the Test Run thread Here.

In general, it'll be first-come first-serve, but I will give priority to those who posted interest in this thread. This thread will be kept open for feedback to stuff not present in the test run, but otherwise, please post in the test run thread if you have something to say.

And somemildmanneredidiot: I haven't really considered support-central characters. You could just not participate in any missions and contribute advice to the other players on a frequent basis, but would that be enough?

I'm fine with that. Character wise, the plan was to use information, supplies, and diplomatic trickery to help whomever was deployed stay alive and complete the objective. Maybe provide a bit of a boost to rolls depending on the situation. Sort of like Wade from Kim Possible, if I had to provide an example off the top of my head.

Edit: Looking over the character creation, I can definitely make a support focused character with what you have. It might take a bit of juggling, but I can handle it.
