Special Mission 1: Perseus/Priscilla

Priscilla, a message comes in for you on the ship's communication array and gets forwarded to your personal communicator:   A major media corporation named Sunz, based out of Grace, is looking to add your livestream to their regularly scheduled programming. Should you accept, your stream would go offline for a time while they work out the legal matters pertaining to streaming a person's personal life for all of the galaxy to watch, then reappear on their broadcast network.   You'd be given a trial run first, where they would take existing footage and cut it to make it as exciting as possible, and broadcast in a primetime spot. If the audience is as receptive to it as they believe, you'll receive your own channel on their network to stream to, with a 1 hour delay from recording to broadcasting. Anything that breaches their terms of service, is top secret, or otherwise not to be broadcast (at their discretion) will be cut.   If you accept the deal, it will be considered a partnership between the corporations, and profits will be split by the two corps 50/50, after expenses. You would also personally be compensated at the rate of 10,000 credits per month (which we can use the charts to determine if that increases your wealth, as you obtain it). Finally, your recording equipment will be upgraded for free. A series of near-microscopic flying cameras will be issued to you, that will 'swarm' about your general area, recording events from various angles automatically.   As the game progresses, when exciting things happen, it will help your ratings, which will net the corporation more credits. If you go out of your way to do extra dangerous things that look good on camera, (for example, acrobatic stunts in the middle of a firefight, or taking life-threatening chances during a ship-to-ship battle, etc.), that can also help bump your ratings up.   While the livestream focuses on Priscilla's life, the rest of you are also 'main characters', so to speak, so your actions can have just as much of an affect on ratings as Priscilla's, as long as they're done within sight of the cameras.
