If you were an experiment...

My jumpsuit would have to be purple. Sticking with the tradition of the last name of an action/SF star with an “on” ending I might take Theron. Meta Theron? I could do worse.

I’d use “Brody.”

or, if you want

(The “Raiders” version, not the babbling dunderhead from “Last Crusade”)

As for color, I guess I’d go with khaki since that’s what the Chief wore. Maybe with a black t-shirt visible at the collar for a little “Ghostbusters” nod.

**** Grant. My own first name, and Grant for Alan Grant, Sam Neill’s character in Jurassic Park. One of my favorite movie characters ever. (Or possibly Carter for Alan Carter, fave character from Space: 1999; I like Alans, okay!?)

My best color is hunter green, but my favorite color is blue, so whichever color is less associated with Mike Nelson, I’ll take. Don’t wanna horn in on his territory! :laughing: Dark purple is a secondary option.

Dang it. Now I want to design a mission patch for myself!

Plaid for the Mighty Mighty Bosstones or black & white for 2 Tone.
:postal_horn:
I’d like Nelson since that’s my Atomic Veteran Grandfather and my Father’s middle name but that’s taken so I would take Smith instead. Jon Smith for that and in honor of the Challenger crew.

I chose Howard Quatermass and an indigo jumpsuit during the campaign as my first choice, and that combo remains my fave. I do like Howard Forbin as well, but that’s more of a Mads name.

I have a nickname from my twenties - Cheech.

For a surname, well, whatever skills I might possess for an apocalyptic world I learned from numerous viewings of Planet Of The Apes, The Omega Man and Soylent Green. Heston is out which leaves Taylor, Neville and Thorn (his characters from that trio of movies)

I like Thorn, but Neville…he drove fast, saved the humans and spent time with a totally groovy Rosalind Cash. I’d like to tap into that kind of mojo.

Cheech Neville and I think that I’d opt for a khaki jumpsuit.

Neville is an ace choice, I mooted that one myself in the KS too. A fan of both the original novel and Omega Man.

The last name from your username here is great choice as well, given the influence of Silent Running on Joel’s vision for the show. I feel a bit nostalgic for the days when there were far fewer sci-fi films; each one seemed to mean so much more because of the scarcity.

I’d go with a bright red jumpsuit and Griffin (my surname) Quill (as in Peter Quill). I would have lots of mixtapes and royally f* up quite a few situations with my acerbic wit (ie - I have a tendency to be a sometimes funny a-hole though I’m trying to tone down the a-holiness.)

You just had to say ‘mission patch’… well, here would be mine. :smiley:

I’d go with dark green (like the jacket I have awaiting kickstarter patches)
I’d keep my first name and be “Tim Sliders” as an homage to the Jerry O’Connell show and it sounds goofy and fun.

I’d go with baby blue (like the baseball jersey color).

My name would be “Katie Steiner.” Because BattleTech is old enough to qualify as “classic sci-fi” by now, and the Steiner family just edges the Davions as my favorite of the Inner Sphere Great Houses (Remember May 20, 3052, YOU CLAN BASTARDS!).

Darn that looks amazing.

Now I want to do mine XD

I’d have to go with purple as well. Get the tribute to my birthstone… or the Vikings… or Prince… whatever.

Anyway, Purple.

Last name? Tempted to stick with my own last name, but then people would think it’s a Discovery riff. Heh.

I think maybe I’d pick Scott, after brothers Ridley & Tony, two directors with a wild run of movies between them.

Wait. No. There’d be Office gags then, wouldn’t there? Damn. This is harder than I’d thought.

Russ Bowman and I’d have a bright green jumpsuit.

I’d go with my favorite color, green.

But not just any green. Castleton green.

If I had to choose something different… why not go wild and choose a tartan pattern for a jumpsuit?

I’d take a dark blue jumpsuit (since I look good in that) and go by the name Dirk McClure.

Dirk for the main character Dirk Pitt in the Clive Cussler books. McClure for actor Doug McClure and his ability to eat an entire dinosaur; as seen in The Land That Time Forgot.

Dye my jumpsuit “nude” please!

Lovely question. I would have to go with a powder blue jumpsuit and the first name of Charlie (can’t go with my real first name, don’t wanna confuse GPC even more). For the last name, I’d homage the director of my favorite cheesy movie from my childhood, The Monster Squad: Fred Dekker. So here comes Charlie Dekker, you turkeys!

I’ve actually thought about this before. Flame Orange for my jumpsuit, and my name would be Anika Bueller. Of course, following the show’s host-naming conventions of first name+character/actor name- especially as my last name is close enough to that of Ferris Bueller’s that I’ve heard (and embraced) the jokes all my life.
