Ah why not, i never played such thing, but i try to participate somehow.
Even i have to admit that i still do not understand exactly what i have to expect from this thread or what i have to write in this game later.
So far as i understand, i have to write some small chapters from my character's point of view to your given situation or something like that?
Well, i actually do not use a unique character, but one from a fan fiction of a good friend of mine and that is my favorite of all the characters in his fan fiction series... but the character's story will be different from 2387 onwards as it seems, now
This one based upon the Cold Element universe as far as i know, even it uses some changed dates aswell some Inferno tech in its own continuity. (i hope it is not a problem, because i do not begin in this universe anyway...)
Rear Admiral Sahra Maximillian-Vasuda
Distinguishing features: nordic appearance, shoulder long brown hair, green irises, 167 cm in height, athletic build
Current assignment: Commanding officer of the GVD Cleo. Second-in-command of the GTVA Special Crisis Reaction Force
During the NTF Rebellion and the Second Shivan Incursion Sahra Maximillian was a pilot on the GTD Aquitaine in the 107th Ravens squadron and become the second-in-command, after the Squadron lost many pilots during the Ravana engagement in the Beyond Gamma Draconis nebula. On request of her best friend Commander Jeannie Gallonigher, Sahra get known to her as Jeannie was transfered from the 53rd Hammerheads to the 107th Ravens as a newly promoted Lieutenant Junior Grade, then Lieutenant Commander Sahra Maximillian took over the second-in-command position of the 70th Blue Lions elite squadron after the Sathanas fleet was detected.
In 2373 she got promoted to Captain and volunteered as a commanding officer for the Tania Australis expedition, which led to the Nyharlahotep incident in the end due to her wrong decisions. After the destruction of the SSD Nyharlahotep, she took the command over the GTCv Warspite from 2374 to 2378 where her path crossed once again with Jeannie Gallonigher who get promoted to Rear Admiral in the mean time and requests to her again to take over a position under Jeannie's command. This time on the newly built GTD Nova, the first and so far only GTD Icelus destroyer that formed the GTVA Special Crisis Reaction Force together with it's sistership, the GVD Cleo which is also the one and only GVD Apotess class. Because of the Rear Admiral's influence, Sahra was promoted to Commodore finally after her reputation had still suffered from her faults in Tania Australis years before.
In a hunt after a reactivated Ancient Phaistos Corvette in 2383 the Nova aswell the Cleo were dragged through a subspace stream from Ikeya into the shivan controlled Beyond Ikeya nebula, where Sahra was forced to take over the command on the Nova, because Rear Admiral Gallonigher was severly wounded in the forceful jump into the Nebula and so she not only has the task to find the Cleo but also to find a way back home. After some weeks, the Nova was able to find a heavy damaged Cleo that lost its command crew and so Sahra took over the command over both ships, even she was transfered three weeks later to the Cleo temporarily after the Rear Admiral was in the condition to take over her command post again. After both ships returned into GTVA space through the Gehenna system, after five months in this nebula, and also during the following years, she kept the second-in-command position on the GTD Nova under then Vice Admiral Gallonigher until 2385 where the Vasudan Emperor made a suggestion of a symbolic wedding between a human and one vasudan of the Emperor's family to show how far the Alliance between both species got during the last 50 years. Even Sahra was reserved for that plans, she got convinced by her friend due to the importance of such symbol and so the wedding took place in 2386 where she got the Vasuda addition in her name aswell all rights the heir of the Emperor has and got promoted to Rear Admiral, which make it possible, that her request was fulfilled to be a commanding officer on the GVD Cleo and so to work with her friend again who has done a lot for her career, even Sahra was the person in 2367 who encourages the young Jeannie Gallonigher since her time with the 107th Ravens.
The GVD Cleo:
The GVD Cleo is a Apotess class destroyer that was built in 2378 as part of GTVA's plans of a reaction force, that can be deployed anywhere nearly immediately. Even the further plans of suchs forces were scrapped even before the first ship of this class was finished, the Cleo is now part of the GTVA Special Crisis Reaction force together with the GTD Nova, which is a terran counterpart and so sistership. In general both ships are working together in the same operations to gain the superiority over their enemies fast or to get the crisis under control as fast as possible. Even the GTVA decided, that it still wanted to use the Hatshepsut as the normal vasudan destroyer, the Apotess has some advancements for its original purpose like a more powerful engine that not only also allows faster travels in normal space, but in subspace as well faster subspace recharge times. Also it is the only vasudan ship that can build up enough energy for the BFVas main weapon that was designed after the model of the main beam weapons that were used on the GTVA Colossus.
After this ship miraculously survived heavily damaged in the nebula beyond Ikeya for five months in 2383, it was refurbished after it's return and some of its weapons were rearranged to make its defenses even more effective.
Unlike the similar sized Hatshepsut destroyers, the Cleo only houses three squadrons with 15 wings in total.
Long Range Standard Flak: 2
Heavy Flak: 4
Missile Launchers: 6
Vasudan Huge Turret: 2
Vasudan Standard Turret: 6
Five wings of a Heavy Assault squadron that uses GVF Tauret & some GVF Shrike.
Five wings of a Interception and Space Superiority Squadron that uses GVF Horus, GVF Serapis & some GVF Anouke.
Five wings of a Bomber squadron that uses GVB Bakha & some GVB Hathor.Other ships of the fleet:
GTD Nova (Icelus class destroyer) C/O: Vice Admiral Jeannie Gallonigher
Well, at least i think that the Nova will not be present in this game. I think the only appearance of it should be during the introduction sequence of this game, because the Cleo got dragged into another timeframe of the FreeSpace universe alone, maybe by another reactivated Ancient ship. Or the Nova will be dragged into another Universe and will appear during the course of the game, what make coop with myself possible
Actually i would like to appear in the Ancient-Shivan War with this
(poor Ancients and Aesdherians). But a 2335 scenario would be also sufficient.
Maybe this ship is the predicted Hammer of Light Prophecy
Prefered starting points would be at the edge of the Aesdher system itself in the ASW timeline to get adapted to the new situation and to be able to scout this unknown system or in the quietly Capella system in 2335 during Operation Thresher.
