I thought it was a really neat touch that three crew members shared an interest in Blind Chess.  I like regular Chess, but Blind Chess sounds extraordinarily difficult.

All Hail First Prince Melissa Davion, the Patron Saint of the Regimental Combat Team, who cowed Dainmar Liao, created the Model Army, and rescued Robinson!  May her light ever guide the sons of the Suns, May our daughters ever endeavour to emulate her!

i think this might be the most interesting one yet as far as the characters go. good work.
"Warriors, not war machines, are the backbone of the Hell's Horses. While others worship the BattleMech as the ultimate weapon, the men and women of this Clan see even this awesome piece of technology as the tool it is. We have held to this philosophy since the days of our first Khan, who knew that the value of the common soldier far outstripped the brute force of the BattleMech. It is one reason our Clan possesses fewer mechs than most, and has led many to underestimate our fierceness and courage. Our survival against all challengers when others have fallen proves the folly of such arrogance, and testifies to the wisdom of our founders."

Blind Chess is playing without a chess set -- the players have to maintain the position in their heads, so, yes, it's very difficult.... ;)

Exactly.  Keeping track of 32 pieces on a 64 square board?  I and here I thought doing algebra in my head was hard.
