((Can you do that? Start a revolt in another nation without actually having agents do it?))
The UTSNA has taken the Canadians to Los Angeles, to meet with Fergus McClain. Once they reach the city, they and ushered into the government complex and are searched for weapons.

Dec 27, 2013Posted in: Forum RoleplayingThousands of years ago, our people fought a great war against the Taiidan. It was not a war for any petty reason, it was a war for our very survival. Our world, Kharak, had been burned by their attacks, the only survivors were in the colony ship, which we were preparing to send to Hiigara, a world whose name is older than any of our clans. It means "Our Home". After what seemed like endless struggle, we won, due to Karan Sjet, who was the living core of the ship. We retook our home. Now, so many years later, after the second great war which gave our people control of the progenitor ship Sajuuk, our people find ourselves subject to yet another threat. It comes from another galaxy, and it is ruthless. It kills entire worlds and can fight even the great fleets of tradeships used by the Bentusi. They call this place M51, and they claim it to be theirs.It's name is humanity.
So, I was playing the amazing game Homeworld (Buy it, pirate it, I don't care. You should all get it.) and then, after being destroyed by the Taiidan far too many times, I decided to come here to roleplay a bit. Then I came up with one of those momentary ideas, namely: "What if there was a roleplay of Homeworld?"
So I decided to fuse my hatred of humanity with homeworld and came up with this.
My vision is that this would be sort of like a government RP reminiscent of Untold Empires, A Hundred Years Later, The New World, or Star Empires. However, instead of controlling an entire nation, you would control only it's military. Due to the fact that only a few major races have appeared in the games, there would also be the choice to control smaller parts of the military, or roleplay a single character who would be commanded by someone roleplaying as the military. I am fully aware that this could be quite hard to pull off, and that's why I decided to post this first. This isn't just an interest check, this is also a discussion over what the end product will be.

The UTSNA has begun claiming the land of the former UAR, trying to bring order back. They have decided that if they are able to form a sufficient government, it will be granted extensive self-governance, but still be a part of the UTSNA unless there are enough people demanding full independence. They have also asked the FRC to allow them to have most of the land, they have promised to them that if their request is granted, they will be sure to take good care of it.
Rebuilding is almost complete, and the Australian territories are no longer doing nothing but taking money. They are now actually producing some, through taxes and the profits of businesses. The UTSNA has allowed some small privately owned businesses to exist, as Australia is still used to a more traditional economy.
The Ares 1 has returned to Earth! The Canadian astronauts have been sent back to their homes, but the UAR ones are being kept in government provided housing, as their homes were destroyed during the Canadian/British-UAR war. The news of the Martian fossils has been televised all over the world, and upon finding out that it wasn't a publicity hoax everyone in the UTSNA has basically just gone into a state of shock and awe over the fossils, which have been confirmed to be of a silicon-based lifeform.

Alien Contact, Caninus System
The human captain grabs into a handhold in the micro-gravity environment of the alien station, apparently the aliens didn't bother to build a gravity ring.
"The atmosphere is mostly CO2, there isi too low of an oxygen content for us to breath it for long."
"This section seems empty, do you think the crews down on the planet?" Asks the captain.
"No, everything's running. I think they abandoned this section, maybe because of us." Replies the ship's linguist, holding a language analyzer prototype.
"Well, we won't make contact like this. We need to show them we're friendly."
"How? For all we know, wearing clothes is a sign of aggression to them!"
"Uhh... well... we could surrender our swords to them" Says the captain, referring to the nanotube swords that they brought, due to the fact that firing a bullet into the hull of the station would rupture it and kill everyone.
The hatch at the far end of the room turns and starts to open.
"Captain?" Says the scientist, turning away from the hatch to face his superior.
"I think they're coming here." The scientist turns to point to the hatch, but is met with a fire extinguisher to the face from a feline alien, rupturing his helmet. He starts gasping for air, the low oxygen content suffocating him.
"SWORDS!" Screams the captain, unsheathing his own sword and using it to block an attack from another one of the aliens using a hardcover book, he slices it in half. The other human officers take out their swords as well, parrying the alien attacks.
"They're too strong!" Yells the linguist, being shoved back against the wall by the fast-paced alien attacks.
The scientist, already unconscious, is attacked by an alien using what appears to be a dictionary, his nose is broken by the onslaught.
"ELECTRIFY!" Screams the captain. "Incapacitate them! There isn't any way this can end peacefully!"
The human swords start crackling with electricity, designed so that they could act like a tazer. The crew starts attacking the aliens, incapacitating every one they hit. Due to actually being trained in combat and using actual weapons, the humans quickly take out the alien crew.
"Take them back to the ship, and get Doctor Brown to sickbay! Oh yeah, scan those books, we might be able to get an understanding of their language. We're going back to Earth, they have better facilities there."
The captain draws a picture on a piece of paper ripped from the front of one of the alien books, it is an image of Sol in relation to Caninus, with an arrow pointing to Earth. He leaves his sword floating in front of it.
Jupiter, Habitation Orbital Beta-4
Two children are playing in the microgravity halls of the older section of the orbital, using toy guns.
"Die, human scum!" Yells one playfully, firing off two foam bullets from his gun.
"Not today, alien!" Says the other child, returning fire with his own gun, which he modified to look like that of a human marine's.
The two continue on playing in much the same manner, not realizing the sign on the wall, which says "Cryogenics" on it.
"Oof!" One says, bumping into a glass tube after being hit by a stream of foam bullets from the other. He turn around and sees a woman inside the tube, frozen with a crude and old 21st century system.
"Woah... come over here, John!"
The other kid floats over to the cryotube, staring at it
"Who is she?"
"Her nametag says 'Elizabeth McClain Smith'."
"She's gotta be important, cryofreezing was expensive back then."
"There's a plauqe here! It says... 'Elizabeth M. Smith: Cancer, thaw when curable'."
"Cancer? That's what astronauts get when they've been in space for too long! It's all the radiation, our habitat is shielded from it, of course."
"So she was an astronaut?"
"I guess so, nobody planetside could afford cryofreezing at the time. She must have been rich."
"Wait till we tell my dad about this!"

Name: Trevor Delano
Personality: Trevor refuses all compliments, and generally has extremely low self esteem. He negatively reinforces it too, making it lower and lower. In a strange paradox of emotions, that makes him happy. He is rarely happy, he only appears happy because he laughs at almost anything slight funny. He seems to have a hatred of humanity as a whole, and he does not actually consider Earth his "spiritual" home. He is also a Trekkie, and a xenophile (Sci-Fi definition on this one.)
Appearance: Sometimes greasy black hair, parted on the left. He almost always wears the exact same type of sweatpants, despite them barely fitting now, and an incredibly geeky T-shirt.
Bio: Born in a tiny, insignificant town in North Carolina, some would consider Trevor lucky, expecting his hometown to be full of small-town charm. This was not the case. Half the buildings in it are less "1950's" and more "Early 1700's", most have historical plaques outside of them. Despite this, and the the fact that the town was actually the capitol of the state, nobody cares about it anymore and even people in the neighboring cities have no idea it exists. The ceilings of his house may or may not have contained asbestos, but they were forced to move after internet coverage for their area was cut off, making it impossible for his mother to work from home. They have just arrived at their new house, and are not even finished unpacking. Besides that, nothing major actually happened. His life has been quite boring, aside from his decision to support socialist ideals (he never calls it Socialism though, because everyone seems to think that it's the same thing as Communism).
Schedule: math, science, Spanish, English, history, engineering

It took casual and dug a hole beneath it so deep they fell out on the other side of Earth. I liked TippTheHobbe's
Oh man, that was great. It was the best Roleplayer's bar/resort/whatever roleplay I have even come across.
Dec 24, 2013((Wha? No I'm not. Any correlation between my nation and any sci-fi government named the Earth Alliance is pure coincidence. Besides, I promised not to have any pale guys from Antarctica break the laws of physics this time. If I'm going to write out the story of something, expect a mission to Jupiter around 2075 in a ship called the Wernher von Braun, using a Tandem-Mirror Fusion engine designed by one Mr. Locksmith, also, I will have space debris cleanup teams. You can win 10 Keyguy points by guessing what that is a reference to. Oh, and I did mention it in a mission report, last page I think, I wanted the rest of you to react to it on your own but nobody seemed to care. I decided to go with the idea that nobody actually believed it, so when they come back and put the fossils on display, everyone will go nuts.))Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
Dec 24, 2013Posted in: Forum RoleplayingQuote from TheFinal_BossThe other was ridiculous and a fun way to blow off steam. Ulti's bar and grill is pretty much one liners about what characters are saying. It's bad.
Yeah, it's not even casual! It's sub-casual or something. I miss the intermediate ones, they had some substance.
Dec 24, 2013((It's actually highly likely that Mars was life-sustaining far before we evolved. Don't worry, it's not like I just said that they met an alien that happens to look exactly like a human named Glork. There is overwhelming evidence that Mars once had lakes and rivers, and as such it is likely that Mars once had life. Not anymore, obviously.))Posted in: Forum Roleplaying

The UTSNA happily agrees to trade with the FRC, because rockets need money, and so does Africa. It also helps get rid of all that oil that the UTSNA isn't using.
The UTSNA has begun Project Solis, and no details have been released. Of course, as with all UTSNA projects, it's probably a word related to the actual research that some guy translated into Latin. The lads down in R&D so seem to like using that as a basis for all project names, probably because everything sounds so much cooler in Latin.
Fergus McClain's Office ((Because I feel the need to make a joke regarding antimatter.))
"Soo... you're saying you can target and take out cancer cells?"
"Yes, yes I can."
"The only problem is that the only material that can be used to do this happens to cost 62 trillion dollars per gram, and would be much better applied in power generation and, you know, sending people to Alpha Centauri. Especially the latter."
"There are lives at stake, Mr. President!"
"Invent some nanobots instead, it would be cheaper. Hell, transporting us all to a universe where magic exists would be cheaper! Now if you'll excuse me, I have a very important rendezvous to make."
Fergus meets with Raja Sukarno just outside of his office in the UTSNA government complex, toting a large briefcase.
"Hello Mr. President. What is it that you wish to discuss here?"
The Ares 1 has begun the long trip back to Earth! Once it arrives in orbit, the crew will be reunited with their families after what is sure to be one hell of a diplomatic struggle. They are bringing back the fossils they found, along with multiple significant rocks, and also an undisclosed surprise. They have said nothing but the following about said surprise.
"No, it's not a little green man. The conspiracy theorists are most certainly not right. Mars is incapable of supporting life, so shut up about it being an alien. Life isn't a 50's sci-fi show."
