Departing from my usual policy of not basing games on TV series, this game is set in the Stargate series universe. It begins with reports of an attack on a highly classified research colony on the fringes of the Milky Way. The archeologists had uncovered evidence of a civilization possibly as advanced as the Ancients. The story begins with an investigation of the planet where the attack took place by the Odysseus, a next generation starship built along the same lines as the Daedulus. Upon arrival the ship will discover most of the colonists missing or dead. The site was a find important enough to pull in General Carter, Dr. Daniel Jackson, and Dr. Beckett who are among the missing.

This game will need a team of specialists, both military and civilian, to investigate the attack, determine the fates of the missing expedition. There is also an indigenous population of humans who have never heard of Gould, Wraiths or Ancients except from stories told by the expedition members.

Characters should be submitted to followed by a Join request to the group site. The profiles should be presented two ways - one for the GM, one for public display for other players to read. Skillsets, biographies, physical descriptions, and general personalities should be included. I will also require a brief writing sample. (This is not a game for one liners.)
