    You know I've been playing some games like Doom 3,Quake 4,FEAR,Mass Effect 2,Dead Space etc. and there are all these cool futuristic kind of places there,like colonies and lots of computer stations and vast offices and all that....which got me kind of thinking,where do you imagine yourself being in a similar sci-fi world?For example sitting on a cozy armchair on a control room supervising stuff or working as a hard-trained marine to protect a colony from alien menaces?
    Owning a small room or a bunker bed in a futuristic corporation base,working behind a computer?

    Engineer in a spaceship?Or security force at a planetary mining company?

    Silly questions maybe,but hey...this is TFF!

    Nice thread...
    I would like to imagine myself as some sort of space explorer/Pioneer seeking out new areas for the sprawling human civilization to colonise (read that as rape!! :p)
    It would depend on whether or not in this sci fi world I had the same family/responsibilities I have now.

    I probably would just end up as bantha fodder!!

    I'd be the one starting a rebellion cause people are acting like idiots trying to take over other planets to kill and destroy.
    Naa im not sure really. I have love for the postapocalyptic themes and it would be cool to be part of a group survivors building up the planet again.

    If we're working within the purely fictional realm of Science Fiction, because humans colonizing other habitable worlds outside our solar system is far beyond the reality of the situation... that said, my dream job would be that of a freelance archaeologist searching for lost human colonies, and ghost ships that have left the grid. I'd also collect alien artifacts, specimens from other worlds, and sell them to wealthy patrons. To make ends meet I'd take hunters and adventures to alien worlds so they could hunt wild game.

    I'd live in a house-ship, like a house-boat but in space. I'd probably work as a freelance musician/game-developer. That would be so rad.

    If I could have my pick, I'd be a tavern owner/detective and gunman in a steampunk type setting.
