Default MgT Serenity

I have been toying around with creating trav stats for the crew of the Firefly. Has anyone else thought about this and if so what would you give the various crew members?

I don't have MGT yet. But I'm interested in seeing what you do with it in regards to Serenity. I've used CT to do just about all the old SF stuff in the past (funny, never Trek. I suppose it was to different, too "clean" or something).

In case you missed it, this might be of interest, borrowed from the If Firefly were Traveller thread:

The blog has some other pages relating to the subject as well, including a more detailed write-up for Mal.

Who ever made the characters for the crew made some pretty glaring mistakes. Mal was a settler and rancher on shadow before joining the army to fight in the war. Zoe was never a marine. ect ect.

he was working from CT and I don't think had access to some of the other careers. Also, as for Zoe not being a Marine, it was probably the best way he saw to get the specific skills he wanted.

In MGT of course you could use the point system.

I dont disagree with you, Just showcases how much better MgT is at character generation.

Quote:
Another note. Iím replacing the Barbarian career with a Settler career that can also start CG at 14 instead of 18 (they grow up fast on the frontier).
I like this idea but not sure how it would work with MgT

So, what does this give us as a framework for the crew of Serenity as Traveller characters.

Mal UPP 88B966
5 terms. 2 peacetime Army, 2 wartime Army (Browncoat), 1 Rogue or Merchant
Total Skill Points: 15
Rank: E-4 (Platoon Sergeant)
Captain Malcolm Reynolds
A hardened veteran on the losing side of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family - squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.

UPP 7AA966 age 33-35
Homeworld skills
Animals-0 Survival-0 Drive-0

18-22 citizen (colonist)
basic training Animals-0 Athletics-0 JoT-0 Drive-0 Survival-0 Recon-0

I may have messed up the numbers. Just wanted to post how I would have done it using MgT rules.

P.S. Anyone interested in my previous posts can fine them here: Just noticed that all the log enteries are on the right hand side of the screen, so I deleated the redundant links here...
