Near the edge of 'civilized' space, the Tammany Nebula colonies are the last place any decent person would want to find themselves living, as it is more a handful of small station-clusters than anything. Space immigrants from other quadrants are recieved here, and as thousands of them come through daily, there exist many facilities to process them. These facilities, run by SAI, Space-Ace Industries, are also breeding grounds for small rebellions, riots, smuggling operations, rampant acts of vandalism and graffiti, and even an occasional instance of curfew being broken. As such, SAI has grown to be a sort of police force, and therefore trains a small batch of recruits every year to keep things 'civilized'.
In a small space-station orbitting Tenement-Planet 09, this year's recruits are being led to an examination room for their finals. The long chrome hallway terminates in a big red door that swooshes open to a room with several empty desks. A uniformed man with cyber-eyes and mechanical arms (courtesy of modern science!) writes on a laser-board.
"Please be seated and begin the test as soon as you're ready. If you are caught cheating your test will be instantly failed."
These recuits would know this man to be Captain Rosko, a hero from the Great Space War. It was said that before he was nearly killed, he had the voice of an angel and could shout out the window of his ship and scare off pesky electromagnetic fluctuations- but now his vocal cords were burnt so bad they had fossilized. He commanded a ship during the battles at the Gallia Sector, and is rumoured to have warped his own ship through a star in an unorthodox tactical maneuver that cost him a good portion of his body, most of his crew, and his sanity. The upside to this being that the Kaiserian ships trailing him were not agile enough to avoid getting dragged into the star themselves. This was considered a great trade, back then. What exciting times.
Oh well, time to take the test, eh?
(OOC: As soon as all of the players post, I will respond with the test!)
