Space is both heaven and hell rolled into one. Everything you could possibly dream of is probably lying around somewhere in space. But nightmares are dreams too.
Space is silent, dark, and cold. It's vast and completely indifferent.
When humans first colonized space, we thought we took every precaution. Planets and moons were terraformed, closed environments were set up, and they even genetically altered people to live on those planets. These genetically altered people are nicknamed aliens, though they're really just subspecies of humanity.
It wasn't enough.
Hiding in the dark reaches of the solar system, there lied a dark secret, a twisted evil. It was not some ultra advanced civilization, but something else. It was a creature made from viruses, similar to how a human is made of cells. The parasite could infect humans and similar organisms, and turn them into undead monsters. Or, even without a host, it could become a monster.
This is the story of a paramilitary team consisting of people of diverse backgrounds (police, army, navy, spies, ect) as they rise through the ranks, going from municiple 'beat cops' to being the saviors of the solar system. Oh yeah, and this would also only take place in our solar system, with real moons and planets for locations. It is worth noting, however, that all the planets are somewhat terraformed. Not enough to be anywhere near as human-safe as Earth, but enough that you can breathe the atmosphere and not worry about your lungs rupturing or your blood boiling. Aliens can survive on their home planet comfortably, however.
Weapons used in this world:
-Hand-to-hand: Weapons that involve martial artistry. For example, boxing gloves, brass knuckles, and claws.
-Melee: Weapons that one swings at people. Swords, clubs, axes, knives, the list goes on.
-Energy Weapons: These are weapons that fire plasma and...energy. For example, lasers, arm cannons, flamethrowers, proton packs, plasma pistols, ect. People who use them are called 'zappers'. They're less powerful than conventional firearms, but they tend to cause effects onto an enemy that make them more vulnerable. These effects aren't as strong as psionic affects, but they have more range.
-Psionics: Through the use of nano-technology, mind scanning technology, and superconductors, people can use psionic abilities, similar to the force. This can do everything from telekinesis to mind control to ki blasts. They have less range than energy weapons, but the effects are stronger.
-Conventional Guns: Firearms that fire solid projectiles. They're pretty good for straight-up ranged combat
-Drones and vehicular weapons: They're pretty self-explanatory.
Would this interest anybody? I'm also having some trouble thinking of idea for aliens. They don't need to be super-original.
