Urgent Communication – Earth Defence Force
Unknown problem affecting all major systems – current oxygen levels dipping, public unrest rising, research and medical offline.
Urgent maintenance required to restore vital circuits. Send assistance as we don.... **breakes down**
The last communication from Starbase 4012-B, on the furthest reaches of humanities influences into the void, made for grim reading at the Gaia Prime Communications Centre. Humanity had come vast distances in the past century. From the birth of commercial space-flight to the construction of vast star bases to survey and harvest rare materials, humanity had achieved it all – or so everyone thought. Humanity now reached across three separate solar systems, the fledgling steps towards a space empire, with several colonies including Mars, Gaia, Harkonen and Killandur flourishing from the fresh waves of colonists eager to explore life outside of humanities cradle – Earth.
Starbase 4012-B was the latest star base to join the Sol Federation’s arsenal of advanced mining and survey stations dotted throughout the vast galactic unknown to study and collect new materials for humanity. Starbase 4012-B was entirely self-sufficient, requiring only a minimal crew to assist with the utility cyborgs that maintained the base, and was meant to begin a new wave of expansion into further reaches of space previously inaccessible due to supply. One year since the coronation of 4012-B as the pinnacle of humanities technological advance, however, Gaia received a garbled message amongst the usual correspondence received from around the Sol Federation. 4012-B was in trouble. Immediately after, 4012-B went radio-silent for the first time since completion.
The Sol Federation’s response was immediate, if there was an unknown fault with 4012-B it needed to be highlighted to command quickly before the expansion rolled out across new frontiers. A formidable crew was recruited from across the Federation to investigate the cause of any interference or repair issues with Starbase 4012-B as well as report back to the Federation if any militaristic contact had been established. The Sol Federation still lived in fear of contact with a vastly superior and dominant race whilst humanity was still in its infancy.
The crew was placed aboard SF Spectrum, a Miami class research vessel, and entombed in cyro-chambers for the long hyperdrive to 4012-B. It has been three months since the Sol Federation sent the crew out into the unknown – with a satisfying hiss the AI onboard began to warm the cyro-chambers back to life…
Welcome to Starbase 4012-B a space-horror in the vein of Alien or Dead Space. I am looking for a 5 or 6 man crew consisting of an Engineer, Scientist, Medic, 2 Soldiers and a Operations Command (Taken by Flax). Any questions please message me!
