Welcome to the Solar Patrol.
In the far-flung future of 2056, the heroic men (and women!) of the Patrol seek to guard the people of Earth and its colonies from the depredations of the Overlord of Jupiter and the threat of a renewed Red Hive. While their burden is great, they are the best of the best, and would not dream of shirking their duties.
You will take the part of a newly-graduated member of the Patrol, trained as well as they can make you, ready to take your place among your comrades and make your teachers proud.
This game is based on the GURPS 4e e-book Tales of the Solar Patrol; while character creation and play would be much easier if you own it, the GM (which is me) can assist if you do not. If you hadn't already gathered, it's a fuzzy-science space-opera game with strong ties to the pulp science fiction novels of the 1940's and 1950's. It's a world where Good is Good and Evil is Evil, and there are few shades of gray.
Character point cost will be 200 points, but there will be a mandatory 144-point template for all characters, plus a few extra notifications that will be defined in this thread.
