This will be based around the cartoon Star Blazers. However, knowledge of the show is NOT required.
In the year 2201, a war between Earth and Gamilus ended. The Terran space battleship EDF Yamato and her crew made contact with Gamilus' leader, Lord Desler, and they managed to make peace between their planets. They even worked together in the following years to fight other enemies. However, in the year 2203, the Yamato was destroyed in a desperate act of self sacrifice to save Earth for what they thought was the last time.
Fast forward to 2205. The surviving crew of the Yamato have taken up positions in a new Earth fleet. The newly rebuilt UN Cosmo Navy has now rebuilt a grand fleet with Gamilus' help, just in time to come under attack by a new mysterious enemy called the Alfort Empire. Their ships come seemingly out of nowhere and destroy everything they come across. The Earth fleet sets sail to confront Alfort, led by the battleship EDF Amagi.
Ship Leader's Name
Ship Leader's Background
Crew Nationality or PlanetSpoilerIf you're from Earth, write what country you're from. If you're from another planet or colony, write that here instead. Gamilus is a prominent allied alien planet. Earth also has some colonies throughout the Solar System, the largest being on the partially terraformed surface of Mars.
Crew Race:SpoilerHuman races apply here. Also, Gamilons have first class and second class races, first class being very humanoid and of blue skin, second class being completely identical to humans.
Ship nameSpoilerIf your ship belongs to Earth, it should be based on a WWII era oceanic warship (i.e. USS Iowa or KMS Bismarck). If it's a Gamilon ship, it will have a letter-number designation such as EX-657, rather than a name. You could also be a pilot or squadron leader operating fighters or bombers off of a spaceship.
Ship Class:SpoilerBasic ships from the bottom up are as follows: Patrol Ship, Scout Ship, Corvette, Frigate, Destroyer-Escort, Destroyer, Light Cruiser, Heavy Cruiser, Pocket Battleship, Battlecruiser, Battleship. The bigger the ship, the bigger the guns. Smaller ships have more missiles and torpedoes to make up for their lack of big guns. There's also Carrier types including those with multiple levels of stacked flight decks. The newly developed Space Submarine is considered revolutionary - They have the ability to temporarily enter subspace and become almost impervious to attack, then launch torpedoes through a rift to attack enemy ships. However, this can only be done for a few minutes at max.
Describe your ship: Picture not necessary.SpoilerTry to make it similarly configured to a real naval ship i.e. main gun turrets, AA guns on the broadside, perhaps torpedoes and aircraft capacity. Some ship ideas can be found here:Spoilerhttp://www.shipschematics.net/yamato...ter=EdfCapital http://www.shipschematics.net/yamato...ilter=EdfSmall http://www.shipschematics.net/yamato...ter=GamCapital http://www.shipschematics.net/yamato...ilter=GamSmall
If you scroll through the pages here there are also ideas and art for spaceships within this universe.
Secondary Important Characters on your ship go here, list names and brief decriptions. Don't put too much time into this if the characters won't have much "screen time".
Main Character: Admiral Susumu "Wildstar" Kodai
Character Background: A hero of the galactic war against the Gamilons, he was unable to return to normal life afterwards, so he re-enlisted several times. He's still recovering from the destruction of the Yamato (on which he served for several years) and the death of his mentor, Admiral Okita.
Crew Nationality: Japanese
Crew Race: Human, Japanese
Ship Name: Amagi
Ship Type: Battleship
Describe your ship: A warship built to replace the recently sunk EDF Yamato as the flagship of the UN Cosmo Navy. She is the first ship of her class. She boasts 5 turrets sporting 2 large 50" main guns each (3 turrets lined up in front of the bridge, 2 in back). Her broadside contains a multitude of quad-barelled anti-aircraft lasers and rapid fire guns. She has a decent aircraft compliment, launched from 4 deck catapaults and hangars on the aft broadside and belly. Amagi also sports 6 torpedo tubes on the bow and a ballistic missile silo in the "smokestack" behind the bridge. On her bow is the opening for the Wave Motion Gun present on every EDF capitol ship. She is powered by a Type 19 Wave Motion Engine which also generates her shields. Amagi has a minimum crew of 3500 but can hold up to 4850 crew members.
Secondary Characters: Yuki Mori, Wildstar's wife; Shirou Sanada, ship XO and Chief Engineer; And the rest of the crew who I won't put here because they are probably going to be minor characters at best. Also - Lord Desler, leader of the Gamilons, will likely make an appearance.
Basic weapons: Your characters will carry the Astro-Automatic (officers' blaster pistol) as a sidearm, but every ship has a security team called Paratroopers or Commandoes who will carry heavier weapons for instances such as boarding or landing parties.
