Sorry guys, life got crazy busy so I haven't been on. I'll post sometime later today depending on what has happened in my absence.
I assumed this would be something like mass effect Andromeda where we have a big but still mobile space station and use small ships to scout like the tempest that the pathfinder gets in game.


This RP is Andromeda inspired.
I would think for colonization efforts it would need to be larger but I could be wrong
As for the ship and being loaded on and what not:

Stasis pods or whatever you want to call them are located on the ship, one would typically be frozen once they arrived on the ship as it's cheaper and safer. Beside, someone has to pilot the ship until autopilot kicks in. I do not have a specific model to give for the ship as I think of it more as a space station, but instead of it being in orbit as its main function, its main function was travel. It will serves as a traditional space station until a home colony is founded. If no colony site can be established it can be a permanent home but that is not the primary goal of the project, think of it as a fail safe.

There are smaller "shuttles" or "cruisers" that can be used for transport from the Mayflower to any planet being scouted.

Sergeant Daniel Monroe,

Thank you for your application! We are so glad that a distinguished veteran and true patriot such as yourself wants to head our security team for the Planet Exploration Initiative. It is our sincere hope to colonize a new world and we believe you would be instrumental in this monumental task. We are pleased to accept your application for Head of Security! Please report for in processing on April 3rd.

Respectfully,

Megan Bruener
Head of PEI, NASA


Dan had been ready for a new life for a long time, and the PEI was his chance, not knowing when he would get another one, he took it. As the Head of Security he was permitted to hire and train his own staff, which unfortunately meant he had to sift through thousands of applications, but eventually he had assembled a good core team who he then allowed to hire the rank and file of security.

Every applicant, no matter their job, had to go through six months of training for the life they were about to lead. Even so, Dan knew they were going to be learning by doing and in an unknown environment that wasn’t always a good or even safe thing. They didn’t pay him to question things, just to keep them running smoothly. He reported for the maiden voyage to their new home at 0400 as requested. He was given a litany of shots and immunizations before being placed in his cryogenic sleep chamber. The glass door to his chamber slid closed over him as the chamber filled with cool gas. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath.




787 Years 4 months 1 Week and 2 days later.


When Dan awoke his breathing was ragged, an expected side effect of the cryogenic sleep process. He reminded himself to breathe deep as the chamber was filled with Oxygen and the computer system of the Mayflower, their ship, checked his vitals. As was part of the security protocol, Dan was the first one to awaken along with his Deputy Head of Security, Amelia Jones.

”How’d you sleep, Amelia?” Dan asked as he put on his security uniform. It was the same uniform everyone else would wear, a pale blue jumpsuit with his name and job title embroidered in black thread over his chest. He and Amelia had matching black arm bands with the white lettering, “SECURITY.” Each department had a different colored band to help differentiate between the uniforms.

”I feel like I’ve been sleeping for centuries, Sir,” Amelia joked dryly. ”According to EVA all of the cryogenic chambers are functioning normally and I requested that Team Omega be woken up.”

”Good work. We’ll meet the other leadership on the bridge once they are awake. Eva will direct non-essential members of Team Omega to their duties around Mayflower. We should be about 3 weeks away from arriving at our new home. We’ll be using this time taking scans of the 3 potential colony sites and deciding from there where to go.”

Dan couldn’t shake a bad feeling from the moment he woke up but he hoped it was just sleeping sickness, another known side effect of the process. Still, he kept his concerns to himself…bad feeling or not, he would do his job and make sure these people arrived safely home.
