Too late to add a picture to my character, so I thought I'd share this pic I found, this is what Royal Space Mounties look when fully geared up for space-related activities.

My character (a work in Progress) has been somewhat written. I'm going to completely rip off the format that Kevin used to explain / ask for suggestions:

(kudos if you get the references :P)

High Concept: Former Royal Space Mountie
The idea is that he is a former Space Mountie (which is now a thing) but for some reason he had to quit or got kicked out (ironically, for being too honest and pissing off the wrong people).
Invoke: To support any skill that a Space Mountie would have, like outdoors stuff, driving, weapon training. Contacts from his time in said organization.
Compel: Not sure how this could be compelled, other than already covered by his Trouble and his Crisis (when he got kicked out). It could be used against him if he's going directly against the wellbeing of said organization, since he still respects it.

Trouble: Honest and Polite to a Fault
And also for some reason, he's trying to find a job that fits his skillset, so he ends up as a mercenary, but struggles with all the grey morality that usually comes from that line of work.
He's not some sort of saint or preacher of morality, or going to oppose every unlawful action the group decides, but he's not gonna be good at it at all.
Also he's extremely polite.
Invoke: Could be used to get a bonus to Rapport or to notice when something crooked has happened.
Compel: Any time he has to do something that goes against his nature, like being rude or deceitful (he can still wear disguises or pretend to be someone else as long as it is "Lawfully", whatever that means), outright breaking laws (to a lesser extent would apply to trying to bend the law or looking for loopholes). This manifests in actually doing it really badly or being obvious at it, or getting easily caught, rather than confessing or just refusing to do it.

Starting Out: Stetson of Fate
When joining the Mounties, he wore the uniform with great pride, and never parts with his campaign hat. Even when out of uniform, he wears it at all times (except when it's the Polite Thing to take it off), and it affects him to the point that it seems to bend reality in his favor.
Invoke: Invoke the hat to help him evade danger or physical harm.
Compel: Any time he is not wearing his hat, (for voluntary reasons or not), there's a higher chance that he'll get hurt, failing to avoid an attack, or a risky skill check (as long as there is actual danger, he's not simply going to randomly break a leg while crossing the street).

Moment of Crisis: Enemies in the Force/Homeworld (pending a better name - was also a candidate for Trouble)
So, at some point in his career, he solved a pretty big case, which ended up exposing a lot of corruption, a lot of people losing his jobs, etc. This is the reason he had to leave it all behind (he may not been "officially kicked out" but might as well). Essentially, most of the higher ups in the Space Royal Mounted Police, and a lot of civilian workers from his homeworld/space country/whatever hate his guts.
Invoke: There's a small chance whoever meets the criteria for this considers him a hero for doing his job. This probably includes a lot of his own mates, just not the bosses or anyone who was crooked. Or out of a job.
Compel: This can come up a lot whenever he meets with anyone that was affected by said event. He could be identified when it's not appropriate, someone could want to start a fight with him, etc.

Character Crossover:
Invoke:
Compel:

Main Skills: Survival, Athletics, Shoot, Drive

He's an outdoors kind of cop, so Survival is his top skill. It also substitutes for investigation-type stuff (got a Stunt for that) when it normally wouldn't apply (like, he's going to sniff candy wrappers in the middle of a city or space station to figure out where some bad guy is hiding).
I figured Drive because he's a mountie, of some sort of Speeder-Bike I assume is in the setting.

Yeah, it's just one local government. If there are jurisdiction issues, those guys probably arrange that with embassies, or simply go out hunting, depending on how lawless is the setting in general.

So, I made this, the Jumpgate Suppository, it fits snugly through any gate's shuttle hole. One could be yours for a very adequate sum! As soon as I figure the price and have time to place a shop somewhere :P

Made my own shuttle today. Will join the lineup if possible and put the blueprint for sale.

Some brainstorming for Ship Combat™. Using as little hacking to Fate as possible. This is for a game of Star Control: The Ur-Quan Masters (video game).

Players are in ships. A ship is a zone (could be multiples if it's a big ship but not sure how relevant that would be, maybe for boarding actions). Ships themselves are also in zones of a generic "orbit" map. I'll probably make some sort of simple grid with a planet in the center, I remember someone proposing such a zone map somewhere. Then use cardboard ships to put counters in them or something so they can all move together. Also so it looks cool and groovy and fo-sho and all that jazz. I'll just file this under "unnecessary visual aids" and not sure if it'll matter at all. Anyway, meh.

Now, the real meat: this "ship vs ship" will be PC vs NPC for all intents and purposes. So you don't shoot "a ship", you attack another person, or mob, inside a ship. Using the ship lasers, or something. Anyone can use any ship weapon or create an advantage saying "I use the ship's underspace megalithic von-snowman craptalyst device to blah" (ideally, something that actually makes sense and sounds less stupid). So they're just people standing around in outer space doing their stuff to other people. I think this fits the SC universe where ships "health" was just how many crew was killed each shot.

This could be really funny or a complete mess. Opinions and ideas are welcome.

But that's not how Star Control works...
Anyway the ship will just follow the same fate as the last person in it - taken out or concedes. Blowing up is just one possibility.

Asi que, hoy descubri que por alguna razon, el Nuevo G+ no muestra todos los contactos de nuestros circulos al compartir (me mostraba todos los homonimos excepto el unico que si estaba en mis circulos), pero el "clasico" si. Debe ser una mejora de Google para que conozcamos mas gente nueva en lugar de siempre conversar con nuestros conocidos...

Ok, I've been working this almost since Day One of season 2. It's gotten to the point where I'm confortable sharing some WIP pictures. Right now, it's all just hull, with some shield lining and a crappy engine and jumpdrive. Next step: interiors.
And yeah this would be my version of the Great Harbour Ship of Bentus, from HW2.

High five!
 
7 year old girl, Zea, ain't got no time for #homophobic preachers
(。◕‿◕。)
Zea stood firm in the face of #hate over the weekend at a celebration of the Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. When a preacher began ranting at her through a microphone, little Zea quietly waved her rainbow flag and never backed down.

Es un hecho bien conocido que se debe girar un conector USB tres veces para que quepa. De esto se deduce que un USB tiene 3 estados: posición arriba, posición abajo, y superposición.
Hasta que el USB sea observado se mantendrá en superposición. Por lo tanto no cabrá hasta que no sea observado - excepto en los casos de túnel USB.
