Project Main Details

Vasudan Translator 
Silent Threat: Reborn is an 18-mission expansion pack for the videogame FreeSpace 2. The story concerns two races, the Terrans (humans) and Vasudans (aliens), who have allied together to fight a war against the xenocidal Shivans (even more alien aliens). That war has been won, at great cost, but a shadowy Terran government organization is conspiring behind the scenes. While the Terrans are recovering from the war, this organization is maneuvering to overthrow the galactic government. The object of the expansion pack is to uncover the conspiracy and defeat it.

The Vasudan translator isn't really a character; it's a synthesized voice that's overlaid whenever a Vasudan says something, in order to translate the alien speech into English. It should sound flat and emotionless, although it can have inflection. Think HAL 9000. Examples are provided in the script section.

The raw text for this role totals just over four pages at 12pt font. The associated links show the raw text as well as the role in the context of the overall script.

This is an all-volunteer non-profit project; every member is working on a pro-bono basis, including voice actors. We can unfortunately offer no tangible compensation, but we can offer compensation in other ways. This expansion pack is highly anticipated within the FreeSpace community, and voice actors will be prominently featured in the game's credits. This role is an excellent opportunity to increase your exposure as well as add to the diversity of your voice acting portfolio. We will, of course, be delighted to provide you with a copy of the finished product upon its release.

Script Details

Because of the nature of the voice, I'm requesting a custom demo. Not many voice actors would advertise auditions with a "flat and emotionless" voice. ;)

Here is the raw unannotated text for this role:

Here is the overall script covering the entire production, including all roles, lines, and character directions. Search for "Vasudan Translator -" (without the quotes but including the dash) to find all the lines:

Here are a few examples from the original game on which this expansion pack is based. This ought to give you a handle on the voice style. (You do not need to provide the alien voice itself; we already have that. All we need is the translation.) If you need more examples, feel free to ask:
