Default [OOC] MNSS Victoria

Blurb
After two decades of war and on the verge of destroying the Magellan Cluster the AI droneships pulled out without warning. It was three years before the first ship left the cluster. When they did they discovered the whole interstellar hyperspace network had been altered.

Without the threat of the droneships the once unified government started to fragment. The largest of the government groups, the heir to the Magellan Cluster Co-operative, the Greater Magellan Union redesigned their latest warship, the Victoria class, into an explorer vessel. The MNSS Victoria, the first of the Victoria class ships, has been launched and these are its voyages.

Players
Points: 175-60
Players required: Navy crew, marines, or civilian experts needed for scientific missions. Senior crew allowed, if not required. No fighter pilots allowed.
Races: Human only. No live alien races known in setting.
Psi Powers: Not allowed. There are psis and there will be some on the ship, but not open to PCs.
Advantages refused: Allies (unless you can come up with an interesting twist on the advantage).
Disadavantages refused: No dependants or enemies. No addictions, gambling, or debt.
Skills required: Spacer (One point in it, at least, if civilian, higher if naval background.) Marines also need to take Soldier.

Crew Roster
1, Captain - (NPC) Trumak Kotta: Decorated war hero, dedicated to his crew, one of the best captains in the Union fleet.
1, First Officer
1, Second Officer
1, Doctor
2, Medics - Possible PC here.
1, Bridge Crew - (PC) Arkades Klesani: Streetwise naval officer with a colourful background.
5, Bridge Crew
1, Chief Engineer
1, First Engineer
1, Second Engineer - (PC) Dorian Pershing: Navy progeny with a promising career ahead of him.
1, Engineer - (PC) Toby Drake: One of the few people who designed the MNSS Victoria on board. An excellent military record.
8, Engineers
1, Chief Scientist
7, Scientists
1, Logistical Officer - (PC) Hojo Black: Impressed Capt. Kotta by his reactions in a dangerous situation.
2, Stewards
1, Marine, Corporal - (PC) Jacob Kane: An AI war veteran, not too friendly to rookies.
1, Marine, Lance Corporal
8, Marines
3, Shuttle Pilots: Multi tasking, pick second role from list above.

Other information
I would like GURPS Character Assistant files for you characters, if you're happy to provide them.

I'm looking for 5 to 7 players maximum for the game.

What's the general state of humanity?
What's the year? The tech level?

How big is the Victoria? How many people does she carry?

What sort of missions do you see us going on? Combat? What kinds of weapons do people use?

What's the general state of humanity?
Humanity lives in clusters of local stars connected by a hyperspace network. The hyperspace network is a web of tunnels connecting distant clusters together. During the AI War the hyperspace network was somehow altered and the Magellan Cluster is lost amongst the tangled webs of the hyperspace network.

What's the year?
1288 since the founding of Magellan, the first colony in the Magellan Cluster.

The tech level?
MNSS Victoria, and the Victoria Class ships, are TL10. However the Magellan Cluster is TL9 going on to TL10.

How big is the Victoria?
Displacement is 10,000 tons.

How many people does she carry?
Final design is still in a kind of flux but I'm looking at ~40 crew.

What sort of missions do you see us going on?
Primarily this is an exploration mission to discover the route to other clusters and to expand the influence of the Union out from the cluster. The mission parameters are wide enough to encompass almost any type of exploration, rescue, diplomatic, or war missions.

Combat?
I would like to include some form of combat but it will not be heavily combat focused.

What kinds of weapons do people use?
Ships use missiles and beams.
People use bullet weapons (guass and caseless).

I think I want to make a swordsman merchant. Is there any way I can talk you into letting me have a hyperdense (Ultra-Tech, page 164) katana?
