Default Landfall

Suppose you and a crew of hand-picked explorers just landed on a habitable but uninhabited - as far as you can tell - planet.
Answer, if you feel like it, any one, as many as you like, or all of the following questions:

Who are the members of your crew?
What is the purpose of your expedition?
How do you proceed upon landing?
What are your priorities?
What are your guiding principles?
What do you hope to accomplish?

Probably all depends on who "Hand-Picked" us.

You did. You're the leader of the expedition.
Whom did you choose, and why?

My crew would include Donald Trump and every member of his administration as well as every Republican senator. In answer to all the other questions, as soon as they left the lander I would hop back in and fly away back to Earth.

You'd better have a hologram of a really great golf course to lure them out.
Doesn't get us very far into philosophy, but I guess you can't have everything.

I've always thought we should build big domes on the moon to put all the assholes in, including those assclowns. Then drop enough food for like, half of them, through a hatch in the top of the dome, and let them discover what survival of the fittest means in .16 G. :shakekyuss:

Well, that certainly offers up some flights of fancy.
Let's see,..., Crew.

I'd start with a few of my old friends, of course.
Verity would be Squad leader. A Petty Officer on a Submarine. Smart and clever (a perfect combination) he would lead the first away team, whose mission is to determine whether there is intelligent life. He could find a party in a deserted Golf Course.

Darryl, ex marine who thought it would be fun to trip on recon. (He was never quite right after that) He'd be in charge of Second Squad, finding food and useable natural "remedies"

Our mission would be simple. Prove that humans can actually exist somewhere without turning the place into a fucking wasteland.

I like that idea. It seemed doable to me - but then, I used to be an idealist.
