Theme idea: "Against the World"
You and your crew find yourself fighting for survival, but not against the machinations of an enemy! Can you brave the dangerous situation you find yourself in despite not having an evil mastermind to focus on defeating? Sometimes the universe is dangerous enough without a specific foe...

I tried to get the brief to get the idea across, but, basically; make a mission without one evil badguy. It can still have enemies and combat, but you can't be against the workings of one specific BBEG.

Are they trapped in a dangerous section of space? Is the planet they are on naturally hostile and filled with dangerous creatures or hostile natives? Has your ship lost power due to an ancient and forgotten civilization's booby traps?

I think it would be great to see what the community comes up with when they are not facing against a specific evil badguy who twirls his mustache and laughs (then gets away).
