We could have co-captains. I drive the ship and use the weapons while the dog does the stuff that requires more brains like contactionf other ships and making the right choices for the crew.

Immortality like that would be even more game breaking than four Aaron's in one place.
You're both so obviously scum that this is a surprisingly difficult decision.

You mean you get to be the gunnery officer/navigator while Jim gets to be captain? Because that is in fact what you're describing there.

Yes but the name of co-captain sounds better. Even if it's just in name.  :P

I can respect that. It also helps that nobody is likely to take a ship captained by a dog seriously - better to have a bearded speechless grizzled space pirate that a dog is authorized to speak for!

No worries for the delay :)

Here is your sheet, updated with skills. I moved your Good Aim skill to Traits, as "Innate Good Aim". Will it do?

Looks good, thanks!

On the matter of ship captain, I vote for Jim the dog to be captain. Just seems like the best choice.

How about starting in roughly 4h? Jim J. Barkley will be made captain, and NAV will still be able to join at any moment.

Before getting started. We have to get you a starting ship. Which ship will you choose, and what will the captain name it?
The captain, Jim J. Barkley is the captain of the ship, but you will all be co-owners of the ship due to some administrative tomfoolery.


Donkey-class Light Transporter:
A very common medium-sized ship, used for shipping goods and people. Cheap and coming with a large hold, they are often customized to better suit their owners needs. As such, its customers base isn't only comprised of traders.

Hull: Medium
Shields: Weak
Speed: Slow
Starting Armament: None
Bonus:
-Large Hold

Abacus-class Science Vessel:
A light ship designed to gather information from a wide variety of regions of space. From the asteroid fields to the deadly proximity of a deadly sun, its enhanced shielding system and special radiation proof materials allow its crew to stay unharmed, for a while. It even comes with a basic built-in lab.

Hull: Light
Shields: Strong
Speed: Medium
Starting Armament: None
Bonus:
-Resistance to radiations (Hull)
-Built-in basic laboratory

Magellan-class Exploration Ship:
A very old ship model that was used during the great era of space exploration. It is very popular and balanced, designed for the dangers of space.

Hull: Medium
Shields: Medium
Speed: Medium
Starting Armament: Light Laser Turret (Front-mounted)
Bonus:
-Efficient Engines
-Enhanced Sensors


Nettoyeur-class Prospector Ship:
A type of ship mass produced for the increasing mining and recycling needs of space industry. It is very sturdy and manoeuvrable, but very slow.

Hull: Strong
Shields: Medium
Speed: Very Slow
Starting Armament: Tractor Beam
Bonus:
-Medium Hold
-Enhanced Manoeuvrability


Honesty-class Corvette:
An outdated but still pretty strong ship. Widely used in planetary security of small colonies, it is a (relatively) cheap and attractive ship for would-be mercenaries, or pirates. Advertised to the general public for its guns and durability, because that's actually all it got to show.

Hull: Strong
Shields: Medium
Speed: Medium
Starting Armament: Medium Laser Turret (Front) / 2 Light Laser Turret (Side)

What's involved in upgrading our ship? Are all of those ships customizable? What are the most common types of situations we can expect to find ourselves in?

Until I have more information, I'm gonna vote for the Magellan Exploration Ship.

All your ships will be customizable. And you will be able to obtain a new one in the future, if all goes well. Customization is ultimately limited by the available space in your ship and the power output of your reactor.

As for situations, it depends on where you will go! Space is wide, surprise is part of the fun. Also, your starting location is a very safe place if that is what you are worried about.
