A nondescript blue police box pulses into view, accompanied by a thrumbing noise.
The doors opens, out steps David Tennant, some sort of sonic device in hand, wearing a mask and nitrile gloves.
"I'm a doctor from WHO," he says. "Wash your hands." He aims the sonic device at the camera, and it activates. The screen fades to a WHO handwashing demonstration.
"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."
"I can do that. What's the starship called?"

I know it's #FineFemmeFriday and all, but here's the latest fashion in dad looks.
Also, go away with 24952 HP. If a sword hits you, and it's not blocked, dodged or mitigated by armor, then you're harmed!
Back in my LARP days we worked with 4 to 6 HP as base (some classes could get up to 5 bonus HP, IIRC), and then 0-5 Armor points depending on the material and coverage of your armor.
One hand weapons did 1 damage, two handed did 2.
If you're an elven archer with no armor, and someone hits you twice with a two handed sword - you're dead. Block, Dodge or Die.
#WildIdea: An RPG real time combat system, where blocks doesn't happen automatically, but you have a short "bullet time"/slow motion window to press [block button], and the length (i.e. the degree of slowdown) depends on your block-stat; higher blockstat => more time to react to attacks.
If you're dual wielding or dodging, the game could give you the option / opportunity for counterattacking.
If you encounter a computer in the wild, DO NOT touch it. They generally will not hurt you so long as you leave them be.
