I’m looking for jobs that you’d think would be useful when colonizing/exploring unknown territory.
The premise of the WIP I’m currently working on is that somehow a large corporation has found a way to another dimension. After doing some test they discovered that humans were able to survive the conditions of this dimension as it is similar to our own. (right amount of oxygen, an atmosphere to protect live from solar radiation, …). They form three international groups to send to this dimension to explore it and eventually set up a colony or multiple colonies. Each group will consist of 8 people so they will have to fulfill multiple roles.
Right know I have:
- special forces: mostly for keeping the group alive - cook/survivalist: providing nutritious meals using whatever they can find - manager: someone who has some experience in leading - construction worker: for the heavy lifting and building the colony - chemist: for chemical reasons - biologist: someone to handle all the unknown plants and animals - engineer: taking care the equipment that was brought with them - doctor: keeping everyone healthy - geographer: mapping the land and knows how to best use it. There will be 3 groups of 8 people. These will first explore the area they arrived in and once they find a good and safe location, reconvene at that location to set up their way back and only connection with our dimension. (for more information see post 40)
Do known any occupations that you think would be useful or do you think any of these could be replaced by something better, please let me know.
