Oh, yeah. The poker game is an awesome way to get the characters to know one another. Have them learn Pyramid, too.

Kara Thrace, in any real military in the world, never have earned a commission, and likely never would have made it past basic training.

To me, as much as I like nBSG, the actors didn't have the same charisma as the original. As you guys said, Starbuck could slide into almost any social situation, and was a compatant warrior, not in need of medication.

Here's a card game for you.

Han Solo
Starbuck
Will Riker
Londo Molari
Teal'c

Omg, as I wrote that the entire character interchage went through my head.

Striker....lets put our heads together and begin creating and fleshing out the Starfleet ship and crew. Anyone's imput is welcome.

I'm thinking a GCS, taking place a year of so after Romulas is destroyed. It is the logical long range exploritory ship, and could handle the exploration of the damage done to the Beta Quadrant. It's tough, but not over the top. Has room for likely half the surviors I'd guess off the top of my head, and everyone is familiar with it.

I'm heading off for the night, but I'll say some stuff first...

Galaxy is good idea. Maybe one of the uprated ones from the Dominion War? As for a crew... I wanna say Vulcan for the Captain, so Starbuck can play off him... her. Yeah. A female Vulcan. :mrgreen: If you want to, that is. Just suggesting it. :)

Add Captain Jack and Skaffen-Amtiskaw and that would be quite a game. :)

That's an intriuging idea. I've never done that, and don't immedietly remember anyone else doing it.

Striker....I'll bang out some character profiles for the main cast, and PM'em to you for your imput.

My memory fails me - is that the Grey Matter's drone from Excession?

Sma's drone from Use Of Weapons, I believe.

Not sure if I can comment, since I've never participated in the Daystrom RPs.

It would indeed be humerous.

And there was much rejoicing."
