Character Design: Story Ideas

The MacGuffin

The MacGuffin for my character design idea is going to be some form of space fuel. Energy or fuel for the characters' space ships. This space fuel is only found in certain places.

Story Ideas 

The bikers goal is to get this fuel/energy from guarded space stations and planetary complexes. The fuel is being produced by a military force or government. This space fuel is expensive and only sold to those who can afford it. (Or they hoard it all for themselves) The bikers steal this fuel and give it to the poor colonies on planets scattered across the galaxy.

  1. Hi Katy,
    I think this is a good start for this project - the premise is pretty straight forward and easy to grasp. I would also think about the epic and exotic themes of Space Opera, so come up with a very unusual form of fuel. Maybe strange glowing crystals, or some mystical energy - something that seems like something people would be desperate to obtain. Perhaps it has other side effects, like granting special powers. Anyway, I look forward to seeing what develops
