Been learning more about Fremont's secret orders from President Polk to act as if he was a surveyor and explorer but to stir up rebellion in California against the Mexicans.

Anyhow the mission and the adding of California to the US read like a Star Frontiers mission IMO

Entering a system under pretense. playing nice with established authority stirring up locals, formenting rebellion, hearing news of the war at large and raising an army and fighting for freedom. Good stuff.

Carson's exploits travelling 1000 miles to deliver a message to Polk and running into the Army of the West only to be ordered to lead said army back to San Diego. Running smack into the Mexican army and foolishly charging only to end up surronded and Carson sent to sneak thru enemy lines and bring potential help from San Diego.

Carson would be a yazirian with battle rage, Environmental skill (mid to high to represent his survival skills) among the military skills. Well developed battle rage because he was a bit of a psychopath and loved to fight, seriously loved to fight.

Fremont Human with an ego- PER/LDR not neglected- some leadership ability. Environment skill and psych-social for the persausion. plus some military skills- probably bio-social PSA
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
