THE GEAR WAR
Space, no longer the last frontier. Humanity has spread across the vastness, cultivating and inhabiting countless words. Humanity is greedy though and with such room we are constantly looking for other worlds with richer resources and always attempting to make contact with some other race, preferably alien. As space becomes more familiar we become lax with security and take less precautions when we scan new sectors of the galaxy.
Our laziness would thrust us into a struggle to survive, to fight for our very existence against an enemy that has no feelings, no sense of surrender. This history would later be written down in historical texts as The Gear War.
Let me tell you how this began....
Machines on some outpost a long-range recon fleet stumbles upon activate at the presence of alien technology and signal the home "world". They begin targeting and destroy the recon fleet. The machines, their programming coming into action then begin seeking other human technology, destroying it and all life associated with it without prejudice. Humanity hastily calls upon its fleets to defend the worlds. The once proud United Space Command Armada has been spread too far and much too thin and slowly planets begin to fall under machine control. The USC begins hastily hiring recruits and building bigger, more heavily armed and armored ships to battle the machine scourge. This is the maiden voyage of the Nautilus Fleet, the hope of humanity!

No god-modding, your character is not invincible nor immortal. However, if you wish to have your character killed off, PM me.
There are no force powers or any other forms of "gifts" your character may exhibit.
Name: The name of your character.
Age: How old is your character?
USC Rank: The rank your character wields, pilots of fighters should at least be Lieutenants. There can only be one Admiral, which my character will be playing. You can have a Captain if you wish. If you desire to be a USC Marine, feel free.
Ship Assigned To: Tell us about the ship you're on. Are you aboard the flagship of the fleet, the Indomitable Spirit? If you're a Captain, tell us the name of your ship and perhaps give a picture. (I'll need to specially approve your ship so pick carefully.)
Appearance: Tell us a little about your character's physical appearance and clothing. Could even differentiate between on and off-duty clothing.
Personality: What sort of personality traits does your character exhibit? Are they a hero in front of others and cry themselves to sleep? Or are they cold, seemingly heartless ones who can order others to their deaths without remorse.
Other: Anything else you feel like telling us. Could even be the space you use to tell us about your own ship Captains!
Ship Assigned To:
============= Auto Merged 2 minutes 36 seconds =============Name: Christopher Raleigh Borden
USC Rank: Admiral of the Nautilus Fleet
Ship Assigned To: Indomitable Spirit, the flagship of the Nautilus Fleet, Captain
A rare man, Chris believes that a true leader needs to be harsh and rewarding. He will punish for acts of insubordination, never pursuing the death penalty. He will also rewards acts of valor and heroism in his crew oftentimes going so far as to announce the awarding to the entire crew of the Indomitable Spirit. He is tactful, observant and truthful. Ask his mind and he will bar nothing from his words. Fiercely loyal to his crew, he embodies the captains of humanity's old texts. He would go down with his ship. Entrusted with the future of humanity's strongest asset he is oftentimes shouldered with a great weight and can seem exhausted mentally at times. He will consider all strategies viable for a situation before pursuing his course of action. To sum up his personality, he is exactly what humanity needs in a leader in their dark, trying times.
