But yeah, that's okay. I'll consider both branches equally within the same character. But let me ask you - if I said I preferred one and that's the build you should stick with, which do you think you'd be disappointed with if I picked it?
Disappointed? Neither, honestly. As far as I can tell introspectively, I'm indifferent between the two.

For anyone still thinking of applying, less than a week left! I promise no lasers will aim for the face* during the course of this game.
*Not a guarantee.

@Espatier and @Howling Winds of, don't forget to finish up your applications if you wanted to remain in the running.

This sounds very interesting. Her is my application for Omega Blue:
Omega Blue applicationName: Tell-Kontarwith his internal parasite/companion, Thasch**
Class: Expert [foci: Alert, Specialist(Knowor Specialist(Survival) if more appropriate for a scout**)
Background: Vagabond/Scout (non-military)
Possible Ship Role: Concept is more of an ‘away team’ sort of specialization

Personality: Tell-Kontar (TK) is not a trusting person by nature, yet he is a risk taker. He feels mild paranoia (that AP Corp will look for him), but will take on jobs with people he has barely met. TK carefully plans and prepares, and then will risk his life for little more than a few credits and to be the first to explore some ruins. His parasite and companion, Thasch, is not a natural risk taker but has learned to be philosophical and quiet…usually. TK will happily murder slavers if he is certain there would be no consequences. He will usually try to help runaways but isn’t losing sleep over anyone else.

Character Backstory: Tell-Kontar was a “Canary” (i.e., an expendable slave working as a scout) exploring remote planets and abandoned space stations for the AP Corporation. It was work he enjoyed for the most part, though the man was lonely. As a competent scout he was treated well but knew better than to trust his handlers. After a mission left him shredded and dying, the slave was subjected to an experiment. An alien animal was embedded in him, to keep him alive and to function as a ‘black box’ recording of sorts. But the parasite/symbiote was more than it seemed; fully sentient, the creature helped Tell-Kontar escape. The alienThe ‘parasite’ is included only for color and to explain knowing things his background wouldn’t cover.** goes by the name Thasch, and though the pair are sick of each other they are literally stuck in the relationship.

So I have a Game Mechanics question.

Let's say I am going with a Noble Adventurer and decide on Lead, Know and Notice for my skills.

With the Adventurer Class you pick two partial classes. Let's say I go with partial warrior and partial expert. Both of them say you get a fee level in a focus, either combat or non-combat depending on which partial class. So I decide on Gunslinger and Specialist Pilot.

So I end with Lead, Know, Notice, Pilot and Shoot and still have a Focus left? Just making certain.

That's right, one more foci. You also get an extra skill point for non-combat, non-psychic on top of what background/foci give you, so you could pick up one more general skill (in addition to what the extra focus might bring) or improve an existing one from 0 to 1.

Last few hours bump!

The game is free and super easy if people are on the fence about trying it.

On another note, I switched my Background to Noble and the build outline is basically what I posted above.

Alright privateers, recruitment is officially closed!

Thank you to everyone who applied. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to keep up with the high tide of new games lately, but we've got some good material here. I'll let Big Sis do some quick calculations and formally announce the crew in a day or two at the latest.
