((*wondering why someone who has created an RP is nervous about starting...)) I think that we'll probably start by July 1st. Thorn has a point.
((July 1st sounds good. And I don't know about more details, I think we should just make more as we go along. :) ))
((What kind of technology is around?))
REMINDER: WE START TOMORROW
((Wow, it took a lot of planning to start this one. :D))
((Yeah... :-[ ))
((HELLO EVERYONE! I HOPE THAT YOU ALL KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS! Giratina, are you ready to start?))
((Ready Freddy! :D))
(( ;-D ))
((Giratina, if you haven't arrived by 10 pm TI time, I'm going to start this.))
((UPDATE: I've noticed that Giratina is often on in the wee hours of the morning, so I AM EXTENDING THE DEADLINE. If Giratina has not posted by 7 a.m. TI time tomorrow, July 2, I'll start.
Stars fiddled with the small ruby pendant that she was wearing. Taking a few deep breaths and attempting to gather her courage first, she stood up to speak.
"We are trying to either find a hospitable place to live out the remainder of our days, or, if necessary, to create one on this ship, as you already know. Those of you already familiar with special relativity know that the speed that we go at will affect a lot of things. For those of you who aren't, time will pass slower on here than on earth, but the faster we go, particularly if we are going faster than half of the speed of light, the slower it will pass. We need to accelerate at between 1 and 1.2 g, which is normal rate of acceleration due to gravity. It'll take about 1 year earth time and between 1/2 and 3/4 of one ship time to get close to lightspeed. It will take the same amount of time to return to a velocity near zero. If we want to explore planets, we'll need to decelerate enough so that we can get into their orbit. In addition, we have supplies, i.e. food, sufficient for ten people for three years. If someone wants to try to invent a system which processes our waste into food, go ahead. Otherwise, we will need to pick supplies up, probably from other planets IF we can find ones with edible food. I'm not your captain or your pilot or anything, I just know a little more about science than the average teenager. So, any questions?"
