*NEW!* - "Create-an-Elite" - The Contest

The first ever event//contest//battle royale that lets YOU, the player, design, name, and possibly get horribly destroyed by a brand new Elite NPC!

What we're doing
We'll be selecting up to Six(6) new wannabe-Elites for inclusion in (or around) Sol, CD+36, and Sirius. That's Two(2) each for UGTO, ICC, and The K'luth.

Interested? You bet you are! Wanna find out how to get your creation into the game? Keep reading!

Now pay attention class, this is important and there will be a pop quiz.

You may submit UP TO (and no more than) Three(3) wannabe-Elites. So pick two for UGTO and one for ICC, one for each faction, or any other combination of 3.

You will also need to supply the following listed information about the Elite, especially the stuff marked *REQUIRED*.

  1. *REQUIRED* Faction: This is so we know what team you want your Elite to play for.

  2. Rank: Elite's Rank may be from Cadet to Chief Marshal.
    If a rank is not specified, one may be chosen at random and conferred upon promotion to Elite status.

  3. *REQUIRED* Name: I don't think I need to state how important a good name is. However, don't name the wannabe-Elite after yourself, another player, your mom, Dem's mom, your dog, your roomate's bother's cousin....

  4. *REQUIRED* Biography: A SHORT blurb about the wannabe-Elite. Please keep this one between 140-200 characters, or else it may get truncated, and that would look silly, now wouldn't it?

  5. Drop List: [READ THIS PART CAREFULLY] You may chose to include between One(1) and Eight(8) enhancements that the Elite might drop. No more than eight, but fewer is acceptable.
    Please limit yourselves to 1 or 2 unique-level enhancements (this includes colored drive trails), and aim for a reasonably balanced mix of other types. If you're looking for a list of valid enhancements, I've provided a handy list.
    If a drop list is not specified, enhancements may be chosen at random and equipped upon promotion to Elite status.

  6. *REQUIRED* Vessel Type -OR- Role: The type of ship the Elite will be flying or the role that the Elite will have.

    1. Ship Type may be selected from the current fleet lists, ie. Assault Destroyer, Boarder Cruiser, Ultimate Worker...

    2. Ship Role would be the functionality, ie. missile spammer, carrier, torp boat, long range, short range...
      MUST provide at least a hull class (including support and utility classes, not just combat), in the event that only a role is given Fleet Command will direct quartermasters to select a suitable ship at random, or possibly even commission an entirely new class of ship.

  7. Publicity Photo: An image of the Elite commanding a ship befitting their rank and status. Artistic talent is not required, so MSPaint will suffice, but keep the images within 500*500px, and a 150kb file size.

Judging Criteria
Unfortunately, due to the nature of faction politics, promotions are liable to be highly subjective, rather than objective based on a specified set of merits.

From the available candidates, 6 will be chosen (again, 2 for UGTO, 2 for ICC and 2 for K'luth)

Fleet Command highly values creativity and variety, so more creative candidates will be preferred over ones who are more mundane.

50 Chief Marshals flying dreadnoughts loaded with unique and advanced enhancements isn't very creative, regardless of how badass it sounds on paper.

As it is said, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it, Fleet Command feels that their commanders should be well-schooled in historical events.

Final Promotion
Upon approval and confirmation of Elite status, the candidates will be given a rank promotion, and will have their publicity photos issued the media. Due to overhauls and necessary dry dock time to properly equip ships (not to mention bureaucratic red-tape), and shake-down cruises, deployment of the newly-minted Elites to the fleet may be delayed by Two Weeks™. Fleet Command recognizes for having able commanders in the field and will attempt to expedite the process as much as possible.

Appendix, Addendums, Et Cetera
While I could provide any number of name generators, the name of the game here is creativity, so doing so would be marginally self-defeating.
For anyone looking for a little extra inspiration, I would recommend perusing the DarkSpace History page and The Universe Today forum.

Contest will remain open for 2 Weeks from time of posting, or until such time as we feel we have an adequate pool of wannabe-Elites to choose from.


I wouldn't screw with it if I were you. The doctor already holds you in poor favor. Messing with this might really fry his shorts.

Name: Joe Stupid
Fleet: UGTO
Rank : Admiral
Ship: Agincourt

Role : Jumps in to defend any Terran classed UGTO planet

Being a typical Uggy nuggethead planet-hugger, he jumps in close to defend any UGTO terran world under attack using an obsolete carrier as an assault ship. Stupid, yes? But he lives up to his namesake.

Occasionally he's been known to jump in too close and literally hug the planet in a ball of fire and free resources... not to mention his drops.

Drops : Advanced Beam Condenser and Advanced Beam Cooler.

We were about to snapshot Joe in his Aggie. Unfortunately, just before we manage to get the shot, the ship collided with a supply plat in true Joe fashion and the camera perished...... along with half the crew on the port side of the vessel when the decks were breached and exposed to the cold vacumn of space.....

Name: Homarus Americanus
Fleet: K'Luth
Rank : Grand Admiral
Ship: Krill

Role : Jumps in and attack any Cruiser and above enemy vessel in Epsilon Eridani

Homarus... or Homer, as he is sometimes known as, is one angry muthatrucker. He loves to feast on cruiser sized vessels whenever they intrude in on his home system of Ep Eri. He jumps them the moment they come through the gate.

On his annual vacations, he can be found swimming his laps in the Sol system, 3rd rock from their star, off the coast of Maine amongst the lobster boats

Such is life.....

Drops : Advanced Weapon Multiplexor, Forest Green Exhaust, and Advanced Weapon Cooler.

No pics are available of Homer or his ship, as he's always cloaked. And when he isn't seated in the Captain's seat, he's off diving somewhere.....

Faction : UGTO

Rank : Admiral

Name : Bad News

Few Admirals are more notable than Adm. James "Bad News" Hellinger. Among his many pointed reminders that he did whatever he pleased, he once reportedly destroyed a UGTO Battle Dread upon his promotion with his speedy destroyer when UGTO High Command attempted to put him in a ship more befitting his rank as an Admiral in a destroyer was "demeaning".

Reportedly, they also quickly revised that statement shortly thereafter.

Drops: Advanced Enginer Booster, Red Hot Exhaust, Enhanced Engine Booster, Standard Engine Booster.

Ship Type/Role :

Destroyer, Cannon Boat

Max of three, thought I would just copy/paste in my sector commander blurbs, just changing a few things about.

Tagatha Maljor:

Tagatha Maljor is the UGTO's eyes and ears in this region of space, controlling off all their military assets. She was born on the planet Ocotat in the Wolf 359 star system, and is 34 years old. She enlisted in military service as a fighter pilot and participated in the battle of Luyten, where the UGTO forces were decimated by the ICC fleet. She vowed to never let herself fall to the ungreatful rabble and quickly ascended in rank. A fierce opponent who rarely retreats, she is a formidable Admiral.

She pilots a Carrier class Dreadnaught for the UGTO. Rank is Admiral.

drops only one enhancement, Zlyg's Weapon Augmentation

Lucious Calgarii

Lucious Calgarii is an ICC citizen with a knack for commerce and tactics. His father was a close friend of Mombola Frederickson, who was the second High Councilor of the ICC, following the legendary Admiral Sheng. Having experienced life admist such brilliant minds, Lucious has managed to become the Sector Commander for the ICC at the age of 26, an accomplishment to say the least. Lucious has studied all of Shi Jei Sheng's military feats, and combined with his knowledge on economics, has become a saviour of the bedraggled forces of the Confederation.

Military Rank: Commander, ship piloted, Combat Destroyer. Can drop Enhanced Defense power, or Zlarrs defense.

Yid’kan Tal

An Artisen born on the frigid world of Oymvre in the Epsilon Eri system, Yid'kan Tal posses an intimidating arsenal of wits, tactics, and a treacherous mind. Utilizing all of the resources available to the K'luth, this artisen has managed to defeat far superior forces with far less firepower, showing the brilliant military mind possessed by Yid'kan Tal. As the newly annointed Sector Commander, he has access to even more military resources, which will surely lead to an escalation in the conflict in this concetrated region of space.

Rank: Grand Admiral, ship piloted Hive. Can drop Advanced Beam Multiplexer. Enhanced Defense Upgrade.
