We should develop characters and kill some off in really brutal ways so we can create some real jeopardy for other characters when they are in life threatening positions. No redshirts in the crew.
So we going for a firefly type crew? Seems to be where this is headed, they had resistance fighters in the crew too.

Also what about the FTL drives in this universe? I think it should be instantaneous and not the whole wormhole thing like with stargate and babylon 5, it'll look cooler

That, I think, depends on the way you portray the FX, rather than the style of jump itself. I personally think both could be really awesome (plus, storywise the Babylon 5 style fast-travel system has some wonderful implications conceptually). I also think instantaneous warp is a bit... cheesy and unrealistic? It seems too convenient (not that it doesn't have risks).

That sounds like something the Immortals would do. Make you think something is important, you take it, and it blows up in your face.

I like the earlier idea of an AI which is known to be potentially unstable, but altogether necessary, and later on it goes insane or something like that. However, I feel that it shouldn't be the central problem. We ought to have a series of worsening circumstances, and this is somewhere down the list.

Meanwhile, the Chinese have declared time travel impossible. Because communism.

But that's a discussion for a different thread.

Not impossible, just illegal. Gotta cover your bases, after all.

I thought the story was that they had a group of scientists declare it impossible because "particles could not travel faster than the speed of light," and then the government used that as an excuse to ban time travel.

Although if that's correct, I suppose we're both right.

So I'm getting vibes that this is going to be a "kill them all" series.

We are not going to be popular.

I say that we kill whoever seems fitting to kill, while preserving the well-being of other characters. I especially feel that we should avoid killing off the main character.

No. Don't kill characters at the end just because it's a sudden plot twist. There's too many sci-fi tragedies out there as is.

Save the youngest character, the one that's always doing stupid things and unlikely to survive.
