It was the year 2583. Humans had spread through the galaxy so quickly that the E.M.A. (Earth Military Alliance) had become the most powerful force ever known. There were many attempts to overthrow them, but all failed due to just the shear amount of the soldiers they had. No one stood a chance until one of their elite forces went rogue and escaped with one of their E.M.A.s most powerful warship. Now you and a force of five-thousand soldiers are en route to assault the ship and take it back. It would just be a matter of time until you were upon them, but something happened. A field enveloped around their ship as well as yours. Both of the ships were pulled out of known space and forced down to an uncharted planet. Contact with command is vert limited and the ship is no longer operable as a ship. Now you have to find the rogue ship and use it's comm unit to contact Command. The only thing standing in your way is a planet full of dinosaurs, and a really pissed off group of rogue soldiers. Survival just became a team effort. Are you up to the challenge?

Motivation to Survive:
Special Gear:

Name: Jacob Book
Age: 26
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 180lbs
Rank: Sergeant Major
Squad: Alpha
Division: 217
Military History: Jacob was always just another soldier, until one mission where they had to track down an enemy leader. The rest of his squad was killed off, but he completed the mission and fought his way back. After his promotion and a string of successful missions, he was assigned to Alpha 217 on this mission.
Specialization: He is a very skilled marksmen with some weapons, though it subtracts from his abilities with assault weapons. He also has mastered using a knife in close range combat.
Motivation to Survive:

Weaponry: Generic army issued pistol, .50CAL Augmented Rifle, Combat Knife.
Special Gear: Ammunition, Radio, Rations, and medical supplies.

((That's what all of our suits will look like, but you can find picture of what they would look like out of the suits. You can also remove certain parts of the suit for customization.))

-Important Note-
Make sure you include your ammunition and radio in your Special gear, because you won't be able to communicate with the others.

Also, I request that everyone please do not make yourselves from the same unit. I can understand one or two, but it would lay out better from other units. This is only a request, not an order though.

In retaliation Jesse opened fire into the crowd, killing six civilians, and wounding an eight year old. Almost immediately, Jesse was discharged, and court marshaled, but he had never showed up at court.

They choose not to speak with her, leaving her yet again alone in the world.

Remember, none of us can get back to command and we are very limited in our capabilities in using the Normandy. I am going ahead and getting myself on the ground so that after the Normandy is nearly destroyed, there will already be a base set up for the survivors of the crash.

Although, if DB wants to get the door opened, anyone else can get trapped in there and be on the ground when the base hits as well.

she wont get the door open in time
