The Camelot was built for one purpose – donating it to the Mars colony. As a result, the ship’s United Forces crew was staffed by a slew of European nations, all looking out for their country’s best interest and many varied individual opinions of what’s best for colonizing Mars. Only the colonists, some of whom also serve as crew, to cut down on weight, being the excuse, are actually there to make sure the community built on Mars will actually function.
These are the brave men and women assigned to man stations on the ships, ferrying the equally brave men, women and children, who shall colonize Mars to their destination. Some are there for a round-trip to Mars, then right back to Earth. Still others are not just officers, but colonists, themselves.
The School Children
These are the children of colonists, several of whom are indeed the reason their parents got to go to Mars. They have the innocent vision necessary to see life the way it is and are the motivation needed to keep the adults dedicated to the colony’s survival.
