honestly, if they do get to the stretch goal of salvage space person then that would definitely be something that I would be interested in.
If?? When they hit their last million in like a week or so, what makes you think it will be an if?
SlimRam wrote on Sep 17, 2013, 10:36:
well, when the new stretch goal is to become Space Station janitor, I'm all in. I figure I might as well excel at something I'm good at , & I can plunge a toilet like no other.

hey, a guy can dream!
That new kickstarted game by the space quest guys is coming along pretty well btw.

I'm still at the original $37 tier. Can't seem to justify paying cash for other virtual goodies (ships) when most can be earned in-game.

I pledged when the i300 series became available. I snagged an i315. And $70? That's the price of a game here in Australia anyway ... so no biggie here.

I've been fighting the urge to splash out on a Constellation or a Freelancer. There's something about flying your very own "Firefly" that is appealing.

Need a ship counselor?

I dunno, do you look like Deanna Troi, or Inara?

A counselor, Creston! Not a pin-up girl!

The counselor keeps up morale by showing curves. That's how this ship works, dammit!

You're definitely more Kirk than Picard, I give you that.
KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN! (with curves)

Okay, I'll be a simple fighter pilot, then. Call me Red 5.
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

I never understood how Troi could've gone back to Riker after being with Worf? I guess the ol' adage, 'Once you go Black...' doesn't work for Klingons?

He must have just wrecked that chick! I mean how kinky and hardcore would sex with a Klingon get. You'd have to be big time into S&M!

Well, Dax kept having to go into the infirmary to get medical help because Worf was banging her to pieces, so...

Also note: No votes for Jolene Blalock.

This game should be SPACE COMBAT focused 10000% and it seems there's way too many extra features getting added now, this needs to stop.

The feature creep in this game is mind boggling.

I will be depressed but not surprised when they reveal that it's just been some sort of diabolical pyramid scam this entire time.

Not you, you're my engineer! Slimram will be the janitor!

Actually, even better, SlimRam. After destroying your space station toilet, out of guilt, I offer you and your Turbo Plunger the job of janitor on my battle cruiser, with some inspiring "are you ready to be all you can be, Slimram?!" speech!

Sir, you just recruited yourself THE best damn janitor in the quadrant! I will not fail you Captain! *salutes with Turbo Plunger in hand*. And sir, if I may speak freely, lets try to keep the high fiber diets of the crew to a minimum...ahem

QuickFix Meal Packets (tm) for everyone! If you've got a problem with that, take it up with our mess hall officer. His name's nin. You can find him in the lounge, playing GTA5!
