Space Grunts

Did you know: ISEP: As technology improved and the galaxy shrank, it became in the UE's best interest to create a third party company to handle the rigors of space colonization. Thanks to the Putnam engine, star systems were reached in months instead of years. The ISEP became the Lewis and Clark expedition of the 22nd century. Contract explorers sign up for short or long missions depending on their skills and what planetary conditions are expected to be found. They never run the ship, but enacted plans for colony development that are already in place before the mission was launched. These contractors rarely have any idea what they are getting into, but are chosen on their resourcefulness (and availability. Sometimes, in fact, availability is more important. A full crew is needed for a launch.) each crew consists of four members: a xenobiologist, an engineers, a security specialist, and a laborer. Sometimes, for longer term, or intensive settlements, the ISEP will also include additional laborers, livestock wranglers and priests.
