    Old Memories, New Dreams

    I was 8 years old when I got my first Lego Classic Space set LL918. I remember I spent hours with catalogs looking at LL924 and the Galaxy Explorer LL928. When I got LL928 from my grandma I was thrilled and couldn't let go. I even took it with me on holidays. Galaxy Explorer Dropship by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr A few years later I saw the Galaxy Commander in the store. At the time, due to my father's job, I was living in an a developing country in Africa, where Legos were very rare. I was gazing at the store window, nearly paralyzed and probably with a wide open mouth. I had just past my birthday and for Christmas time I would have to wait a long time. As quickly as I could I ran back home broke that piggy bank into pieces, took everything I had and ran back to the store. I still remember the feelings I had when building this spaceship and looking at every new part as if it were yesterday. Galaxy Commander Dropship_1 by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr Now, decades later, being an AFOL I still love space topics, specially neo classic space models from other Afols. A few years ago I remember seeing Wolf Leews modernized version of LL928 (and 924 and 918) in LegoIdeas and having exactly the same feelings. I tried to push it in LegoIdeas but unfortunately it did not make it to the threshold. Wolf Leews, if you see this post, thanks for sharing the instructions. I have your models in my showcase ever since. The idea of an own classic space model did not let go of me. It took me again years of thinking how to approach this topic. My problem was I wanted everything. I wanted to have a command centre, several spaceships, some robots some cool versatile and functional vehicles, a garage where the vehicles would go for repair, a habitat, a repair bay for the robots. And I wanted the antagonists as well: Blacktrons! And I wanted everybody to build up his own space station. Uff! Galaxy Explorer Commander Dropship I knew this was impossible. Then my Lego Pueblo came to mind. It was a 4in1 set proposal at LegoIdeas that you could buy multiple times and stack to each other building up your own Pueblo village. My Lego Pueblo did not make it to the threshold but if I did such a concept once, maybe I could do it again. Many months of thinking and planning what to do, which bricks to use, color scheme, how to combine classic space with Blacktron, drawing and doing research followed. Then I started building. The target was a 3in1 space creator set with three different scenarios that you could combine forming a big space centre. Each scenario should have its own theme and its own playability concept. At the same time some models of one scenario should connect to models of other scenarios, so at the end you have one big unity. I also needed a story. As I love sci-fi and astronomy this part was the easiest one for me. What came out was space station "Antares", a 3in1 space creator set, where New Classic Space searches for Legonit ressources and Blacktrons trying to steal it from them. One alternate build is the Mining Outpost, the other one is the Bot Repair Bay and one is the Galaxy Dropship. 9 Antares Classic Space3x by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr With the Galaxy Dropship I combined the features of the Galaxy Explorer and the Galaxy Commander and built a mashup that had its own look. Like the Galaxy Commander the dropship can be split into a space fighter and the cargo bay. Like the Commander it may hold a space lab. But it also may hold a space buggy like the Galaxy Explorer. Since the space buggy is from scenario Mining Outpost, I decided it may also hold the truck from its own scenario. Then I continued. The Galaxy Dropship may hold the trailer the fuel or plasma tanks or even a small space fighter which actually is the cockpit of the robot of scenario Bot Repair Bay. The set seems to be huge, too big, but actually it is only big when the set is acquired multiple times. As a single set it has less bricks than the biggest official LegoIdeas set. I hope you like it and support it at LegoIdeas. It is another attempt to bring back some space without StarWars. 5 Antares Galaxy Dropship by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr 6 Galaxy Dropship Hangar by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr Guys I do not want to bore you too much. Please take a look for yourself at LegoIdeas. Check out the three different video animations (search for "Legocionado" at YouTube) and take a look at the pics of the updates at LegoIdeas (I have made some animated gifs explaining the concept). Here are the direct links: To LegoIdeas "Antares": 2 Antares Classic Space by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr To YouTube animated video for the "Galaxy Dropship":
  2. I have seen some wonderful remakes of SW in Ice Planet colors, see below. Have you seen or made any MOCs in past space themes that were inspired by SW ships? Maybe even improved them? Please post them to give us inspiration. This photo was found on Reddit and I would love to make my own MOC diorama as well.
  3. I Backdated the war-bot a bit, using design / color cues from Blacktron 1. I also used parts and ideas from the Iron Monger set 76190 (the main body) & Hydra Stomper set 76201 (Laser power / jet pack thing on the back of the robot) mech models from Marvel, along with claw from the old Agents 2.0' Robot Attack. (set 8970) The legs and laser arm are holdovers from the "Build Better Bricks" Iron Giant instructions. I tried to make it as different as possible to the original blue robot while still using the same basic skeleton. This "war-bot" is supposed to be an opposite (yet equal in strength) foe for my Classic Space fleet, and an enemy to "fight" at any future displays and on my space layout. He is slightly shorter in stature than my Classic Space robot, but his laser arm and crusher-claw hand make up for it! Laser power / jet pack thing is on the back of the robot. All the parts left to find / order on this MOC. This MOC will be built as soon as funds allow, and has replaced the BT3 robot on the enemy... er, to-build list. Looks much better than before anyway! NOTE: The chest should have the “upside down tri-force” logo printed on it when built in real life. Any thoughts? Comments, questions, and complaints welcome!
  4. Hi everyone, I don't think I have shared this with you earlier, but I've been busy with some Blacktron ships. Last year I've build the Blacktron Mobile Outpost Transporter. I have just finished my Blacktron Heavy Fighter 1. The modules from both ships can be combined. For more pictures look into my Flickr album.

    [MOC] Blacktron LASER THRUST

    On Flickr a little bird (...or panda) whispered to my ear that the people on Eurobricks would really like my stuff so here I am! This is my Blacktron Razor Crest. It goes by Laser Thrust and features no original Star Wars pieces so it can be on Lego Ideas. If you like my ship, you could go to Ideas and support it, that would be nice!!! I really have shrunken the pics as far as I could but yeah, have a look at - there you'll find more!!

    [MOC] Podracing on the Moon!

    When the Neo Classic Space Federation puts out a galaxy-wide call to take part in a podrace on the Moon, the call is answered by the Blacktron Future Generation. Although Benny's racer, 'LL-UC45' uses cutting edge tech, the Future Generations 'WhiteGilled BlackFish' has never lost a race. The stage is set for a white-knuckle showdown as these old foes race each other across the dusty plains of the Lunar surface. A month to design and build. 3,000 pieces (ish, don't know wasn't keeping count) and a lot of left over discarded bricks, my Star Wars/Classic Space mashup moc is done. The full album is on my Flickr page here:

    [MOC] my WH40K Warlord Titan

    I'm quite new to Eurobricks Community, so I'd like to start presenting my MOCs with my biggest one so far: it's a Warlord Titan from Warhammer 40000. IMG_20190407_171303-01 by Lorenzo Brovia, su Flickr FB_IMG_1565485466005 by Lorenzo Brovia, su Flickr warlord titan 2 definitivo_2 by Lorenzo Brovia, su Flickr 4966 pieces, about 56 cm tall, designed entirely with LDD (then rendered in Stud.IO) and then built in real pieces. It was a real challenge to design it, in order to make it sturdy enough to let it stand by its own (a must for me),even tough it is still poseable, can rotate the waist, the legs, the arms, the head (a little) and the shoulders cannon. I think that there is no need to describe from which LEGO theme inspired me the color scheme and Heraldry ;-)

    Meanwhile on planet Covid-19...

    Just for some levity in current times. Ever wonder where on earth all the toilet paper is disappearing to? Does Blacktron have something to do with it!?? Just take a look at planet COVID-19... Please feel free to share
  13. I have written many times here how much I love the classic series from the 90's called M:Tron. They stole my heart when I was a child. Togeter with Blacktron II series of course. I still haven't got my heart back to this day ;) From some time I was thinking about some crazy crossover. What if instead of space explorers they become knights? And they even get own castle? And let's add to this their eternal enemies - Blacktrons! Read more » Bigger photos and full story here: LEGO Gallery - [MOC] M:Tron goes castle and Blacktrons are undeads!

    [MOC] Another perfect day in space

    A Classic Space vignette by yours truly. I had a *lot* of fun making this, for sure - it's my first ever serious display scene, and I'm quite proud of it. What do you think? Check the album for more angles and detail shots, and check my signature for a more general-purpose Classic Space collection. Thanks for looking! ^u^

    [MOC] Blacktron Harvester

    The terror of it! The mechanical grinding of its gears and hissing of its hydraulics send shivers down the spines of even the most veteran, harden soldier. This is the Blacktron Harvester!

    Good Morning Eurobricks. New to the group. Heard this is the place to speak on anything space related. Glad to be here either way. Let's talk about the build. The front and back are completely done. Shoutout to the lego space book for the prisoner's bed idea, Brilliant. As for the actual brick, you guessed it; all old light gray. With the exception of a few hidden headlight bricks. M-tron panels, three of them up in the back. As well as three box fronts on the top right. The doors directly below open to reveal the armory. Not sure what set they actually came from, but they're cool. In order to keep it sp2 colors i added the solid red bars and trans green glass. The sp2 tiles were an afterthought. Never intended to place four in the build, but...Should I construct a ceiling to truly give it a finished look? Any and all comments welcomed. More dioramas to come!!!

    52035 space bikes

    So, I've been building little spacebikes based on this bike fairing part for a while, and by that I mean a couple years or something. IMO the motorcycle is terrible, ridiculously huge, but the fairing's good for little spacecraft. It was even used for this set 5969 prototype. anyways, group shot The Blacktron version's the definitive one. and 100% legal legos, so I used it as a base for this instructions page There's a bunch of others in my flickr gallery if anybody's bored and curious, cheers

  23. Blacktron is back! Hello from Italy! Tonight I share my latest build: a big, bad and totally black armoured personnel carrier. It's based on U-59 Explosive Truck from Joe 90, a 1960s British science-fiction television series created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson (the same producers of U.F.O. It's called B-59 where B stands for Blacktron, in fact this six-wheel APC is the new and lethal groud vehicle of Blacktron. The little ATV on the right is based on the Amphicat, a six-wheel-drive, skid steer amphibious all-terrain vehicle manufactured in the '60s by Mobility Unlimited Inc. of Auburn Hills, Michigan. The Amphicat was also used by Moonbase Alpha personnel in the television series Space: 1999. Back view and tank entrance. The interior with many details. This time thanks - to a friend of mine who is a pro-filmmaker - I produced a presentation video of the B-59. Below on YT. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by! B-59 on flickr.
  24. Confirm your participation and receipt of a PM here! Non players can comment and discuss the game here, but obviously, as nonplayers, they cannot actually play the game. Nonplayers are welcome to try their hands at the side game of guessing character references! remember to use spoilers! ............ .............. ............. <<This is Colonel Jack Jones--paw off the mic, Danny! I'm making this announcement--Sorry about that. This is Colonel Jack Jones. Long-Range transmissions have been jammed. This is not a Drill. I fear this means our base is under attack! I want to take a role call right now! All facility members please come to Meeting Room 1 for attendance taking. Everyone remain calm, and make your way to Meeting Room 1.>> Nathan: "Great timing. Any earlier and we might have had to be late for attendance!" Diamond: "Haha, yeah!" Nathan: "I swear, I'm gunna get you off of this dump! We're gunna see the stars, you and I! Now, could you pass me my shirt? Diamond: "Maurice, I find your human clothing to be so silly! Back on Arcturius, there is no need for clothes!" Nathan: "I know. I went there once. It was great." Meanwhile, some facility members were already in the meeting room... Bock: "This is my favorite Opera! Only a Pliskeen can perform such melodic notes with such a deep range of emotion! And Mikal Ansset is my favorite performer of this piece!" Laura: "Quite true. I once sat in the front row of one of their performances. They has such a splendid voice." Zipzop: "I can almost smell their pheromones from here... " Major Dave was also watching the show, and agreeing with all points made, While Saemus stood silently guarding the rich bureaucrats, looking like a badass. Most of the facility arrived soon after the rolecall was requested. Ender: "So then I blew up their planet." Vasquez: "Frackin' sweet. I wish I was gettin' some action here!" Clementine: "So, Harriet, you see any cool rocks today?" Harriet: "Damnit Clem, they're minerals!" Rip: "One more week... One more week... Knock on wood... Or sheet metal... One more week...." And then the hosts arrived... Host Comments: 1. Thank's all for joining up for my very first Mafia game! Special thanks to my co-host, the talented and delightful JackJonesPaw! Without his editing skills, I'm sure this whole kit-and-kaboodle wouldn't be half as shiny! Seriously. The shininess is edited in. 2. Character Names were decide on first, along with the figures, followed by character fluff. Then I assigned characters to players depending mostly on answers to sign-up questions. (Then I took today's pictures) Then I arranged all players/characters into a random arrangement not based on the alphabet or sign-up order and assigned each player/character a number. I then ran a random number generator to assign affiliation by number. I then seperated Blacktron Affiliates from Federation Loyalists, re-assigned numbers, and re-ran the generator to assign Power Roles. Everything occurred by chance. No clues in pictures. No clues in fluff. No clues. 3. All Names are references to Sci-Fi (mostly). Most Fluff also contains additional references. Should all references be properly figured out, crudely edited pictures of "me" giving out "cookies" will be distributed to participants in this side-game. I may use MS paint. Not quite sure yet. The number of references per character that I expect is as follows (Note: dissimilar Characters (or like directors and authors) from the same piece will be considered one. If you figure both out though, good for you! Note 2: I'm not including references to Lego themes (or games) here... even sci-fi ones. But I am including references to a great Lego Sci-Fi builder.) 4 of 2: 1 or 2 Bock: 1 Clark: 1 Claw: 2 or 3 Clementine: 1, 2, or 3 Diamond: 2 or 3 Doctor Wen: 1 Ender: 2 Hannah: 1 Harriet: 1 Laura: 1 Major: 1 Minga: 1 Nathan: 2 Paul Harkonnenn: 2 Rip: 1 Seamus: 1 Vasquez: 2 Zipzop: 1 RULES! 1. Each player will be given a character to play, who will be aligned with either the Federation (Town) or Blacktron (Mafia). To win the game, the Town must kill off all the Mafia, while the Mafia needs to outnumber the Town. Third-Party (neutral) characters have their own win conditions as outlined in their roles. 2. Each day you will be able to vote to lynch a player. Voting should be done in the following format; Vote: Character (Player). Similarly, unvoting is to be done in the format; Unvote: Character (Player). No other format will be accepted. A majority vote is required to lynch a player. Voting is compulsory. Every player must have a vote placed by the end of the day. Those who do not follow this rule will be subject to 5 penalty votes. 3. A game day will last a maximum of 72 hours. You may not vote in the first 24 hours. The day will end when a majority vote has been reached. After the day has concluded, a night stage will commence, which will last a maximum of 48 hours. Night actions must be sent to the host in the first 24 hours of the night stage. 4. The alignment of lynched players, as well as those that died during the night, will be revealed at the beginning of the next day. 5. You may not quote or pretend to quote anything sent to you by the game host via PM. This includes all the details of your character and role, as well as any night action results. Role claims and reporting of night action results are acceptable, but in your own words only. Do not attempt to use the structure of your role PM to your advantage. 6. Do not play the game outside the thread. Similarly, do not post out of character inside the thread. Game tactics and roles may only be discussed in the game thread or via PM with other players. Private discussion is done at your own risk and should be treated as part of the game. 7. If you are dead, you may not post in thread or discuss the game with any of the players. Any information you had becomes void, and may not be passed on. 8. You may not edit your posts. 9. You must post in every day thread. 10. If you encounter a problem or have a question, please contact the host via PM. 11. Violation of the above rules will result in a 5 vote penalty against you on your first offence, and the death of your character on your second offence. 12. There are no clues in the pictures. I will not intervene should someone suggest there are clues in the pictures, because there are none. There are not clues in the character flavor text. I wrote that stuff before I even decided on alignments and roles. No punishment will be doled out to violators of this rule, but I expect violators to be heavily harassed by other, rule-abiding players. 13. Grab your towel and don't panic. Standard role info appearance: Player Characters (19) 4 of 2 (Mostlytechnic) Race: Human cyborg Occupation: Technician 4 of 2 is what happened when a human underwent the cyborgization process practiced by the Ufoan race. Damaged in a starship explosion in Ufoan space, and the sole survivor of her crew, the Ufoans performed their cyborgization tradition upon her to save her life. They succeeded, but at a price. 4 of 2 was not the woman she was before. Once a vibrant, fun-loving individual, she is now more machine than woman, and has a very robotic way of looking at things, which tends to make those around her uncomfortable. She now tends to the machines and technology on this frontier settlement, having decided to keep as far away from people and her former life as she could. Bock Pathos (Bob) Race: 1/2 Klingulcanomulan Occupation: Bureaucrat Bock is half Klingulcanomulan, half human, and, as is typical for a member of his race, he is a very passionate individual. Bock has a tendency to care very deeply for those around him, placing the few over the many. There are many ways to trigger an emotional response from Bock. Even something as minor as a cute pet picture can cause him to become overwhelmed by emotion. However, due to the fact that he is half human, it is possible to coax him into a fit of logic. Bock had a steady job as an administrator on a core world, but that all changed when he received a chain holo-mail lamenting the "plight" of the Miners on frontier mining worlds, which could be alleviated just by sending in your Bank PIN and Social Security Number.... So he had himself transferred to LI-420 so that he could help them out through his passionate love for social justice! However, when he got here, he found the job to be thankless, and primarily composed of paper-work crunching. Also a large sum of money had been transferred from his account to a mysterious "Social Calamities Averted through your Money" organization. Clark Kubrick (Chromeknight) Race: Human Occupation: Bureaucrat Clark was appointed to oversee the unveiling of a brand new super computer spaceship control system and to attend its inaugural flight. This prestigious event was a culmination of all his hard work climbing the governmental ladders, and, had it been successful, might have ignited his hopes of running for Governor of his home colony. Naturally, the voyage was a complete disaster. The computer turned out to be homicidal, as they often do, and he was forced to deactivate it, remaining the ship's sole survivor. The manufacturer of the computer denied all of this, citing "human error" as the fatal flaw, and placing all blame and culpability on Clark. Fleeing persecution at the hands of the Computer manufacturer, Clark wound up on LI-420. Now, with his dreams of governorship in shambles, he only hopes that somehow he can make a name for himself here, and move up on to better things. He's now in a relationship with Harriet Stomper, although he doesn't know she already has a family back home. Claw (Lazychicken) Race: Burghiszoid Occupation: Various "Claw" is a single mind between several bodies. They belong to the species known as "Burghiszoids" due to their truly bizarre alien physiology reminding the very first human to discover them of the Burghis-shale-locked creatures of earth's Cambrian explosion. A brood of Burghiszoids, such as claw, shares one mind among its member bodies. These bodies can perform a myriad of dissimilar tasks, but their thoughts are one and the same. The brood known as Claw was here on the planet when the Federation first began mining. They just showed up one day, and have been performing odd jobs for the facility inhabitants ever since, demanding nothing in return. At first, it was pretty unsettling to the crew, but they've gotten used to not having to clean out the ventilation shafts, or gather energy pods from the solar fields, or picking up after meals. Clementine Lister (Lind Whisperer) Race: Human Occupation: Miner Clementine Lister was a lowly technician onboard the "Little Red," M-Tron's first expedition to LI-420. So lowly was she that her Crewmates forgot to retrieve her from cryosleep upon arrival. This turned out to be her saving grace, as the expedition ended in disaster due to a malfunction of the ship's computer which resulted in the release of a deadly neurotoxin. Only after the ship had long since crashed on LI-420, and the neurotoxin had dissipated, was Clementine awoken from her slumber. She survived alone on the deserted ship for several years before her rescue at the hands of 'Rip' and some other miners who finally found the derelict ship's homing beacon and were tasked by their company to "check it out." Clementine claims to have made companions with a sentient cat and a hologram during her stay on the ship, however no evidence of these characters was discovered. The medical consensus is that these were just hallucinations induced by lingering neurotoxin. But in her defense, Major Dave believes her. Now Clementine works as a miner, supporting Harriet and 'Rip' in tending to the mining equipment. Diamond Dodd (CallmePies) Race: Pliskeen Occupation: Cook, among other things Diamond Dodd is the facility's chef, during the day, and bartender during the night. The facility's robots actually do all the cooking and cleaning, so Diamond has plenty of time to partake in other activities. Diamond is a member of the hermaphroditic Pliskeen species from Arcturius. Arcturius is a lush and verdant world positioned midway between several other homeworlds of ancient space-faring species. As a result, the Pliskeen species evolved alongside quite a few different alien races, making them famous for their "compatability" with many a species. The typical career trajectory for a Pliskeen in the Federation either involves performance art, or diplomatic relations. Diamond was not gifted with a particularly melodic singing voice (by Pliskeen standards), nor were they gifted with the grace and poise other Pliskeen often displayed, so Diamond opted for diplomacy. after leaving their homeworld, however, they discovered that they found diplomatic relations to be exceedingly boring. After a few failed internships with famed diplomats, Diamond found their way to LI-420, and filled an empty hole that was in need of attention. Diamond still wishes to explore the galaxy, though, having once again grown dissatisfied with their current inactivity. Diamond wants action and adventure, and they found some in their partner, Nathan Mallard, who they calls "Maurice" for reasons only they knows. Nathan promises to take them on adventures on his smuggling ship, which suits Diamond just fine! Doctor Wen (Xenophobic Monoxide) Race: Seems Human enough Occupation: Doctor Doctor Wen is definitely a human, and definitely has a doctorate of some kind. Likely a medical doctorate, as that would make most sense, considering Wen is the base's Doctor. The good Doctor knows a lot about a lot, and has absolutely no problem babbling frantically, in a varying accent from the British Isles, about just about anything while doctoring. The doctor is deeply altruistic, caring about even the smallest and ugliest of creatures. The one exception to this rule is in regard to an entity known only as "Mo-Phat the Destroyer." The Doctor despises this creature for some reason, and whenever it's name is brought up in conversation, the Doctor becomes uncharacteristically serious, claiming "they gave him to much power." No one has ever seen or heard of the entity, and it is speculated that the creature may only exist inside the Doctor's head. Ender Gaiman (Jluck) Race: Buggizoid Occupation: Bureaucrat Ender Gaiman is a brilliant tactical mind. He wrote the book on interstellar warfare in the 26th century. While many applaud his efficiency and strategic genius, some consider his methods brutal, and "pretty sociopathic." His life up until recently has been devoted to quelling insurrections, and dealing with hostile first encounters. This all changed when during one such hostile encounter, he ordered the complete annihilation of the alien's homeworld. "It was seriously us or them." Were his remarks. Needless to say, Ender was stripped of his rank and given a lowly position as one of the diplomatic liasons on this planet. He was not endighted for war crimes, however, because he still has powerful friends in high places who didn't want to see him imprisoned. Also, most people agree that "It was probably us or them." Hannah Ford (Ranger of the Forest) Race: Human Occupation: Smuggler A rogue and a scoundrel, Hannah is the suave pilot of "The Annual Eagle" a hunk of junk spaceship she souped up and pimped out to fit her intended use... which was smuggling, of course! Quick to crack a joke, and even quicker on the draw, Hannah has made many enemies in her business... because she's not that great at it. She's certainly amoral enough to fit in with her corrupt clients, and she certainly sounds like she knows what she's talking about when she throws out words like "parsec" and calls folks "kid" or "rookie", but for whatever reason, she ain't the best at following through with her end of the deals she offers. For the most part her misadventures end up well enough for her, but she's racked up debts all over the galaxy, and some day, she'll have to pay up. She's rivals with fellow smuggler, Nathan Mallard, and the two end up butting heads wherever they go, as they pursue the same clientele. Harriet Stomper (Mediumsnowman) Race: Human Occupation: Miner Harriet' s a tough space miner, who does what she does for the good of the Federation, and for the good money in it! Without miners like herself, where would the Federation be? Ships need metal and gas, and other stuff, and Harriet is very good at extracting those things from asteroids and planetoids alike! She takes great pride in her ability to operate heavy machinery, and her hands on knowledge of the perils of space mining. She's exploded soon-to-impact comets, operated almost every Power Mining and Rock Raiding vehicle, and even extracted awesumnium from a biomass granting planet. Mining is her life, and she does it for the Federation, and the money, for her family back home on Earth. She's presently in a relationship of convenience with Clark Kubrick, although it doesn't mean anything to her. Laura Starbucks (Tariq) Race: Human Occupation: Bureaucrat Laura Starbucks is the second in line to being heir to the Starbucks Franchise. Her tall days were spent in vicious intrigue and competition amongst her four three sisters for the Trenté fortune awaiting the eldest. Laura was a clever schemer... but she was out gambited by her sociopathic younger sister, who finally had her banished to as far away from Starbucks HQ as she could. Laura too has powerful friends, so she has maintained a prestigious position in the company, as well as a simple syrup sweet administrative job on LI-420, but still she still has resentment brewing within her, and longs to enact her grandé revenge on her sister and retake her place as the rightful heir to the Corporation! As far as exiles go, LI-420 isn't so bad. The work is so easy, Claw could (and often does) do it, and she has plenty of time for her scheming. The only problem is the coffee on this planet is miserable. Major Dave (Fhomess) Race: what's the hurry, man? Occupation: Security Officer Major Dave's earliest wish was to be an astronaut, but ended up enlisting in the Space Police program. Bored of his unfulfilling life in a core world precinct, Major Dave sought to enlighten and entertain himself by becoming a phychonaut instead. Making use of confiscated LSD and similar substances, Major Dave went through his daily routines high as a space station. And for the most part no one cared or noticed. That is, until one day, Major Dave went out into space with his suit on backwards. In his defense, that's what the Glimmering Space Dragons told him would allow him to ascend to a higher plane of existence. His supervisor started taking notice of his proclivities, and soon Major Dave found himself under intense scrutiny. Chaffing under the new regulations on submitting narcotic drugs into evidence, Dave left his cushy Core-World job to become the primary security officer on LI-420, where he continues to blaze it daily, and partake in solo psychotropic expeditions. There's not all that much securing that needs doing in the facility after all. The Glimmering Space Dragons are much more interesting. Minga Gorgon (Dragonfire) Race: Fa'Anta Cera (Trollz) Occupation: Bureaucrat Minga Gorgon was an exceedingly competent Governor of her homeworld. The only problem was that she was, infact, the Governor's Administrative Assistant.... and that of the previous 5 Governors. During her unelected reign, her planet saw an Economic boom, and grew in influence in the galactic court. All that changed when the court finally looked into the governance of her homeworld after some incompetent baffoon errased her planet from the Federation's archives. In the ensuing scrutiny, it was revealed that Minga had been ruling the planet from the shadows. To be perfectly fair, though, she ruled it very well and her people, the Fa'Anta Cera (derogatorily referred to as Trollz) had always been under the leadership of absolute monarchs, having never truly even desired a democratic government system. Naturally, the Federation removed her, but her planet's Governor ensured Minga would not see jail time, instead having her assigned to LI-420. Here, Minga does the best she can to help administer the planet, and maintain positive diplomatic relations with the Insectoids, but in her absence, her planet has fallen into a recession. Her people need her, and she needs to go back. Nathan 'Maurice' Mallard (TinyPiesRUs) Race: Human Occupation: Smuggler Some people call him the space cowboy. Others call him the gangster of love. One person calls him 'Maurice,' but as to why that is, it's hard to be sure of. Nathan is and ace pilot and captain of "The Serendipity," a ladybug class freighter, which he uses for smuggling. This puts him at odds with Hannah, quite frequently, as she too is a smuggler, and the two of them constantly compete for the rich and eccentric clients who end up on frontier worlds like this one. Whether it's unroasted Coffee beans fresh from a Starbucks Coffee-Basket world, Illicit psychotropic drugs, or really dangerous and extremely illegal guns, Nathan is willing to skirt the law and deskirt the law-enforcers, to get the good folks of LI-420 their goods. For a price. Nathan is a free-spirit, and a gentlemen. As much as he tries to blend in with his corrupt clientele, it's often plain to see that the man has a heart of gold, and a moral compass. Bending that compass costs his clients extra. Somehow he's made it pretty well in the world of grime and crime, despite his "Integrity." He's found himself a steady partner in Diamond Dodd, and promises to take them off this miserable planet one day, so that they can see the stars and live a life of adventure alongside him. Paul Harkonnenn (Piratedave84) Race: Human Occupation: Bureaucrat Paul Harkonnenn is the bratty son of the Governor of a rich desert world. His powerful father put him on the track to success as early as he could, paying his way through the best schools (not to mention paying for black market intelligence enhancing drugs). Only the best for Paul. Unfortunately, despite all his father's best efforts, Paul grew up to be lazy and cripplingly incompetent. During his first job in the Federation government, he lost track of a few planets by misfiling paperwork, erasing several from the Federation's archives, and nearly caused an interstellar war. It's anyone's guess as to whether these mistakes were accidental, or just childish methods of dealing with his boredom. Regardless, after many failed attempts to get his son to take his life seriously, his Father got him assigned to this backwater planet, in order to make him "man-up". Even as one of the diplomatic liasons stationed here, though, Paul has yet to change his ways. 'Rip' Sewer (Captain Nemo) Race: Human Occupation: Miner 'Rip' is a space miner, and shes a week from retirement. She's finished her 10 year shift and she's going home. It's been 10 long years since she's seen her wife or now-11 year old daughter. She watched her daughter grow up from satellite transmissions, and was there for her birthday parties only on a television screen. It's been 10 years since she's picked up her own daughter in her arms and told her how much she loves her, or kissed her caring and understanding wife.... but the family needed money, and 'Rip' has been dutifully mining LI-420 to support them. 'Rip' has endured miserable work conditions, uncaring corporate higher ups, and the occasional Alien parasite, all in the name of supporting her family... and now she's one week from going home. What could possibly go wrong? Seamus Aaron (Hinckley) Race: Human (mostly) Occupation: Bounty Hunter An infamous bounty-hunter, feared galaxy wide, Seamus Aaron is always on the clock. From disintegrating space pirate motherships, to interplanetary pest control, no job is too repugnant for Seamus. As long as Seamus gets payed, it makes no difference. Seamus was trained from a very young age by the last of a dying warrior race, and therefore knows many archaic battle techniques that have been very useful for the bounty hunting career. Additionally, the ancient warrior race bestowed upon Seamus their form-fitting battle gear with highly advanced defense capabilities, and the power to roll up into a perfect sphere somehow. Seamus is also honourable, and will not fight an unarmed opponent.... preferring instead, to toss them a weapon before opening fire. Despite Seamus' reputation, people are still surprised to discover that he is, in fact, a man. Vasquez Rodriguez (Lady K) Race: Human Occupation: Space Marine A member of the Rodriguez family has died in every great interstellar conflict in human history dating back to the liberation of Earth from the Hypaxxians. To carry on this honourable tradition, Vasquez Rodriquez enlisted in the Classic Space Federation's Space Marines! Vasquez is honour-bound to die in glorious battle against whomever she deems a worthy opponent. unfortunately for her ambitions of reaching Valhalla, she was stationed on a backwater mining planet marking, or rather, muddling, the border between the Federation, and the Insectoid Empire, and the two have hardly conflicted since they first encountered one another. Until now, she's been pretty bored. Zipzop Beetlejuice (Sir Stig) Race: Beetljuician (One eyed monsterous Space bunny) Occupation: Bureaucrat Zipzop is a self-styled interstellar playboy. Leaving behind him an immense string of scandals and ex-lovers, Zipzop is constantly on the run from his unsavory reputation. He's held many a govenmental office, on countless different worlds, but it always ends up the same for him: He listens to his second head, and ends up in trouble with the public eye. Zipzop believes he's found a safe haven on LI-420, however, since very few people give a damn about the planet, and his salary is still quite good. His only fear is that his first Ex-wife finds him and demands the alimony she is rightfully due. That or his mistress during his stint as Governor of Uranus returns for more cover-up funds. ~Insectoid Aristocrat
