Trying to churn up rusty memories of a decade ago because I'm highly intrigued by the Star Vikings fate in Out of the Darkness.

From what I can recall, and research on the forum, the Star Vikings emerged after the collapse as a group of adventurers who scoured the rimward subsectors of Diaspora looking for 3i relic technology untainted by Virus. When they found such technology they either salvaged it (if said technology wasn't in the possession of someone else) or siezed it (if it was) and (from here the memories get REEEEEAL hazy) sold it off? Kept it?

So, first question, what was the Star Viking's mission? It seemed like they had a noble purpose tainted by ignoble execution. Desperate times and desperate measures.

They apparantly pursued their mission aboard modular ships with underpowered meson spinal mounts?

Would these ships still be practical or even around by the time of 1248? What would the Star Viking Exodus Fleet be composed of? Is it a group of longships, or a Galactica-esque "rag-tag fleet"?

The original Vikings are 50 some-odd years older than they were back in their raiding years. Have they existed as an organization, continually recruiting younger crews to their cause? Or are the greybeards leaving the galxy with a fleet full of idealistic young crewmembers seeking adventure beyond Charted Space?

I really like the image of the Star Vikings leaving behind a society that no longer values them to rescue a civilization far beyond Charted Space. I'm just trying to figure out who these people were, so I can start working on who they've become.
