Pilot WIP’s 1&2


Yay! I have regained enthusiasm for my Pilot. As you can see, I’m running with clothed, and staying with the ridged suit. Love it when I work through a block and the result is something I like. Love my Pilot, now. Here are some more details about her:

She has never been outside her protective environment. Not physically. Every one of her 30,000 strong crew complement has a haptic implant, which not only enables the pilot to feel everything each of them does, but to see and hear everything they do, in real time… all of them at once. She also has 500 ‘terminals’, android replica’s of herself, who live and work among the crew, she not only sees, hears and experiences everything each of them does, also in real time, but she controls each one of them as an individual. Their job is to help/protect the crew, as well as run the ship… they are not necessarily officers, though some are. She also controls thousands of independent battle drones, destroyer-sized warships in their own right, though, as they only ever have her terminals as crew, they are several times faster/more maneuverable than a human-crewed destroyer, and have vastly more destructive weapons which, as they require no shielding/containment, can be run harder/hotter/faster than similar weapons on a human crewed ship.

Beyond her protective shell, is another, sealed/shielded shell, stretching 50 meters in every direction from her shell. This space is totally empty, and filled with hard vacuum. It also contains 50 Ninja class battle mechs. These mechs are twice the size of a human, and resemble a human, except for their six arms. They are ridiculously strong, they are not only weapons themselves, but each contains multiple weapons of all kinds, from blades to plasma torches, and every kind of projectile and energy weapon in between. They are hive-minded, but also capable of individual thought. Their sole reason for existence is to protect the pilot. Their programming goes: protect the pilot, protect each other, protect yourself. The pilot has no control over them.
