A single ship made it's way across the inky blackness of space...

It is a time of great unrest in the galaxy, a time of great exploration and discovery has givin rise to an age of wars, as cultures and species completely unaware of each other's presence battle to determine who is the dominate race. Into this turmoil a single goverment struggles to form, threatened on all sides by powerful warlords and pirates, all unwilling to give up power. For now we focus on the small ship, Sirria's Light , a scouting ship for the Sirrian peoples, it carries precious cargo, ambassadors from the Sirrian system. Protected only by a select group of mercenaries from the first galactic army and it's own small group of security guards, it travels toward the Earnon sysem. a central world, where leaders from all across the galaxy will attempt to work out some sort of peace. Little does the crew of the ship realize they are being watched.

Silently through the blackness of space a small silver probe flies for the ship, to small to attract attention on the ships radar's, onward it flies until it reaches the surface, a slight sizzling noise and it slowly floats away, it's purpose served, the sensors array on the ship is now subtly disabled, behind it a score of large cruel battleships appear, apparently out of nowhere, and begins making it's way silently towards it's prey, onboard the vessel the crew is blissfuly ignorant of the impending doom. The Saerken are aptly feared as the most vicious of space pirates.

Meanwhile in the soldiers mess hall two of the Sirrian security forces sit, enjoying a quick break, suddenly one looks up, a noise is heard above, he walks slowly to the stairwell, hands not even thinking of reaching for the stun pistol, after all no attack is expected, suddenly a grinding sounds, screams, and long thin screeches. He stares curiously up the stairwell suddenly his eyes widen, he turns and falls, the screeches increase in pitch. Twin rows of thin green light flash, accompanying the screeches, and rip effortlessly through the guard, tearing effortlessly through flesh, bone and low grade security armor. His companion stares in open mouthed terror as the fearsome forms of Saerken raiders begin marching down the stairs, he sees' only feet of crimson battle armor before turning and fleeing, crying out "The Sarks are attacking!"

Soon alarm spreads across the ship, security personel and soldiers attempt to route the invaders, but are quickly being over run. Ambassadors and other important persons attempt to make their ways to escape pods. In the prison bay doors are rocked open allowing several prisoners to wander out, take weapons from dead guards, and attempt to find their own way out. In the cell block several prisoners found themselves suddenly free, some desperate criminals, being transported for judgement, others small time smugglers and hunters, others innocent, captured in haste, for their shady background. Quickly arming themselves from the weapons of dead guards they seek their own way to freedom...

Ok so this isn't exactly star wars at all, merely somthing I thought would be cool. Your free to make up races, or just use already existing ones if you don't want to make one up. Add any sort of background if you feel inclined, or just a general description. Since this is all basicly being made up as we go along you have alot of freedom when making up a character, just make sure it's not unfairly powerful.

Name: What most people call your character
Age: Characters age
Gender: Do I need to explain?
Rank/position: (examples, Ambassador, Security personel, Galactic army grunt, escaped smuggler, janitor...)
Weapon(s): Might differ depending on your characters background, for example a prisoner might only have a stolen stun pistol, while a soldiers arsenal would be heavier.
Background: as long or short as you like
Any other important things we should know: speaks for itself.

I know it's not star wars, and the storey's kind of cheesey, but I thought it might be kind of fun to have a relativly unknown universe to mess around in.

Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?
