How to prepare
Any experience with a d20 system (Pathfinder, D&D 3.5 edition, Mutants & Masterminds) can be helpful since that's the license Starfinder is built on. Don't worry if you don't know everything, though. This is a learning experience, and I can tell you that even after years of GMing, there are still areas of the 350+ page Core Rulebook I'm vague on from memory (to say nothing of all the expansions Paizo loves to produce!). Knowledge of Roll20 basics is also helpful but not necessary. I'll be glad to answer any questions I can about its functions. Note that Roll20 works purely through the browser (no downloads needed) but only reliably on PCs, usually with Firefox or Chrome (no iPads or phones).
What I provide
This game is virtual. I'll provide the Roll20 table (furnished with all maps, monsters, macros, and mood music), the Discord server, tokens as desired, and plenty of tips and tricks to make online play a breeze. I can also provide organized play credit for this adventure via Paizo's Starfinder Society. Note that this is totally optional and doesn't require all players to participate. Oh, and fun. My aim is that we all have tons of fun with this.
It is very difficult for player characters to die in Starfinder and failure in Redshift Rally is much more likely to lead to character embarrassment than character death. Never the less, character death is a possibility (albeit a remote one) for which players should be prepared. I don't do real life politics or religion in my games, and I ask my players to leave that outside the game as well.

How will character creation work
All players will start new at level 7. Character creation will take place (for free) on the Discord chat in the days before the first session. You should come to it with an idea of what type of character you want to play (driver, mechanic, face, etc.) and some idea of a backstory. If you show up with a full-fledged character sheet, awesome. If not, my promise is you'll have one when you're done. I always recommend starting with what your character wants most. Is it revenge? To find a lost friend or family member? A paycheck and a place to sleep? Whatever it is, that's your hook to start building your character around. I'll do my best to accommodate within the bounds of the adventure as written.
