Appointing a Leader

The following section is borrowed from the "Space Corps Survival Manual".

In a survival situation, there is always the possibility that your commanding officer will have been lost in the disaster. Perhaps he will have died in an enemy attack, perished trying to pilot your ship to safety, or pehaps - as in the case of my first space disaster - he'll have tripped and hit his head in the rush to get to the grav-chutes before everyone else.

What does it matter - he's dead. You're not. So take his clothes, steal his valuables and then, depending on you mood - eat him, bury him or play hoopla with his genitalia to pass the time until your rescue.

With your leader dead your first task is to appoint a new leader.

Leadership Qualities

To identify who among you possesses the most leadership qualities, consider :
