META

I'm trying a long form writing prompt.

This thread will hold the entirety of the long form, and my top level responses will be the new prompts. I'm going to use what's submitted to build out a story to use as the basis of the next prompt and so on. Feel free to join any prompt at any time, and we'll try to slot you in.

If you have any meta questions, ask here.

Q: Are we essentially filling that form out and posting it to that response as a starter?

A: Yep. Don't spill your beans in the lobby, that's a public facing document, but I'm looking to get an idea of who your "player" is. A player could be one single rich individual with a skeleton crew, a large conglomerate of independent interests whose venn diagram overlaps with "space", or anything inbetween.

Essentially, the earth is ready to explore to the edges of the heliosphere and our technology finally permits it. You're buying space in the first harbor and preparing so that you can launch your ships and achieve some goal.
