By Digger Jumpchain 0.8 It is the Year 2352. Humanity has moved far beyond its homeland of Earth into the stars, using the Monopole Coil to create one of the most grand inventions in history, one that shaped this future: The Jump Drive. With it, mankind is able to move across the stars with the ease(if not greater) than we can ride across the skies. Short Jumps allowed for intra-system transportation to be as easy as a short drive, and Long Jumps allowed for transport across systems light-years apart. However, this future is not one of perfection and peace. After all, the massive armored war machines known as Battle Modules would not have been invented if the universe were not dangerous. Humanity is still itself, as there are pirates who ply the stars and a tyranny that brews on planet earth. Not only has humanity remained its own greatest threat, but alien species are plentiful...many are peaceful, such as the traders of Worldring-3 or the pink whales of Jarzela...But some, like the robotic Berserkers, are simply bloodthirsty and ruthless. It’s a dangerous Final Frontier you’ve been flung out into, as you begin as one of the crew members of the exploration vessel known as the S.S Swordfish on that fateful event...You begin as one of the few survivors of the Space Pirate attack that beset it and sent the ship into a Jump Miss, flung out into far-off systems. In order to survive I’ll grant you +1000 Choice Points.

By Digger Origins So, you were a crew member of the Swordfish before it got utterly rinsed by Space Pirates. What was your role? Commander(/Drop-in, 0): Well, this is a bit tricky. You see...the Captain of the Swordfish DIED and their Clone Code was sort of destroyed in the process. While Mica, the helpful A.I, can take the helm of the ship at the bequest of the crew, the crew would feel a lot better if someone were to metaphorically take the reins and ensure that the place was running smoothly...Enter you. You wake up in the ol’ Captain’s clone pod. The ship and Mica both assume that you’re their clone, though the damage to the medical bay’s systems may or may not have mutated you a bit...either way, you’re put into the Bridge and given a cursory training in Battle Module combat. After all, if the king won’t lead, the others won’t follow. Soldier(0): Meet exciting new life forms, and kill them! That’s what you got into the program for, and you’ve been damn good at it. If there were more people like you onboard the Swordfish, you bet those pirates would have been toast. For now, though, you’re an amazing asset to the current situation. After all, this is an alien system with alien worlds. You’d best believe that your particular skills are necessary for whatever you encounter, be they hostile wildlife or murderous robots. Your prowess in a Battle Module is incomparable to any of the others besides possibly other soldiers on the ship, which means when things get real..and they often do...they call upon you.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
