Do you know what sort of character you want to play? I can kick things off while you work out the details if you'd like :-)

Re: OOG Comments
Okay I have a couple ideas. Maybe you get let me know how feasible they are in your setting. I'm thinking that 3 may not work in your setting so I am leaning towards one or two. Let me know which options are feasible.

1. A scientist or engineer who specializes in one or more of the following areas: 1) The construction and maintenance habitats like the once described in the setting section, 2) agriculture and livestock on deep space habitats, 3) Construction and maintenance of nonjumpdrive ships available in the egg system.

2. Some kind of charismatic con artist constantly on the run from local authorities. He survives by assuming different identities and runs small to mid sizes scams ranging from the equivalent of email fraud to real estate scams.

3. A conspiracy theorist fearful of an eventual imperial return. This character has spent most of his adult life attempting to develop combat skills effective in habitats or in space. If such skills are available points would be focused in martial arts, small arms use, or guerrilla warfare.

I like them all.  #3 would certainly be amusing!

You could work all three into a character, although you'd probably want to put your skill points toward the first option over the others. Someone who is a skilled engineer/scientist, somewhat of a con artist/bad boy (or girl), and a little paranoid, is actually a well rounded and complex character. There's not much in the way of armed conflict, and not an excessive amount of crime for the population size (remember they're spread out all over the system), so any real ground combat experience wouldn't be available here.

Re: OOG Comments
Hmm okay I'll focus on scientist/con artist. Maybe I can take paranoia as a disadvantage for some extra points. I'll try to hammer this out this week.

You will be starting out aboard a ship, so it sounds like you would have an engineer's slot aboard a cargo ship (more to come very shortly on that).
