Though I'd rather answer your questions in... well, the Q & A thread, I think I understand what you're talking about.

You're not going to have to do much more than BS your way through this anyhow. I'm using alot of technical terminology, but honestly - I'm mostly making this up as I go along. Meaning - BSing is exactly what I'm doing already. Actually, I think that's generally what science fiction is about.

If you want a specific description of terminology, that's fine. Really, I'm not looking for someone who's got a detailed understanding of military science fiction. I'm looking for someone who wants to have a fun time on a 20's era space ship. If that's you, then make a character and sign on.

I am more than happy to draw up his background and PM it to you. As a D&D GM once told me... "To a player, it's background. To a GM, it's blackmail." Also never got a final reply back from you, so I assumed if I tweaked it as you said it would be fine. Let me know, aye?))
