Stellar Frontier has something for everyone: You can be an independant pilot; transport captain, mercenary, freelance escort, or even pirate. If ground combat is your thing, there are three branches; Mechanized infantry, armored infantry, and Infantry. You can either be enlisted or an officer, depending on whether you like to lead or fight. The list of possibilities are endless: Space captain, colony governer, scientist, etc. All careers are connected throughout a huge system of economy, diplomacy, and technology.

It's early 2162; a year of scientific breakthroughs, opportunities for wealth, and diverse cultures. The recent civil war in the United Earth Alliance has given you an opportunity to reach into the possibilities created by the sudden surge of job opportunities. The newly-formed Terran Syndicate offers high pay, but primarily only high-skill military jobs, as it fights the UEA. The EUA has a firm hold on Mars and Luna colonies, a huge scientific field, and a medium-pay military. Nova Global and their network of PMCs has a huge availability of black market, military-grade equipment for the right price. Rumors among Mars colony freighter captains and miners speak of 'irates' using unknown technology to raid convoys.
Choose your story, and begin your legend.

You're on a transport carrying four ATEVs to a forward outpost on the border of the UEA-controlled Greece and TerSyn-controlled Turkey. A few miles out of Kipoi, the outpost is little more than a few bunkers and garages, but it serves its purpose.
AAA targets your transport, and your vehicle sergeant orders you to secure your position in the ATEV. The gunner isn't here yet, and neither is the driver. What position do you take?

I can't even begin to see what the problem is, so you'll have to tell me exactly what you are suggesting I do.

A short quick reference definition for each for every faction/class/whatever, it helps, really

Factions I went over in the intro. There aren't classes, only careers and branches, and there are no set careers. But, since you went out of your way to help me run my own rpg, I'll do it. Give me about an hour or so and I should have it done.

You step off the shuttle into Minski, the former capital of Belarusa. The shuttleport is relatively empty, with a few TerSyn guards scattered throughout the building. About twenty, you estimate, approximately 20-30 meters apart. There are a few restaurants, and a hotel outside. What do you do?
