Where do we stand on Robots/AI as sapient crew members? From their own planet, like Stel from the Green Lantern Comics, or Pablo from the Adventures of the Starship Coconut...

I was hoping for one, actually. It wouldn't be proper sci-fi without a machine to remind us what frail meatbags we are.

To everyone:

Speaking of being a frail meatbag- I won't be able to start up our RP until the day after tomorrow at the earliest, by my clock. I'll let everyone make a few introductory posts, and then we'll jump straight into our first "adventure". Probably something with space pirates.

If anyone doesn't have their CS submitted by then, don't sweat it. We can always just let you post last, or add the character later. I'd rather a good character coming late than a rushed one on time.

@Jeyma

Thank you, though I feel my OC's race is more "soldier" and/or "warrior" themed. Admittedly they probably held hunter-like traditions previously but accepted a more doctrinal approach to their culture.

I can see Gue'rach and Rizky maybe discussing different philosophies, such as how should you kill someone? Be devious and stab 'em in the back or be honest and stab 'em in the face?


Yeah Rizky is more tribal warrior/hunter. And she would hold his words in some kind of awe. Males of her peoples were very similar to the role that Lt. Ve'tame has on the ship. That and those same males were the ones that mated with the Queen.

[@ShiningSector

Now we've got two "hunter" themed aliens on the ship. I wonder if Geu'rach and Rizky more respect each other or more compete with each other?


Well for Rizky, like I said, there is a bit of awe that she holds for Lt. Ve'tame, so she definitely nods and listens to his wisdom.

You're accepted too. I'm already smiling at how her superiority complex is going to clash with Carabello's laid back style
Hey thanks!

And yeah, well he's the captain, so she will follow his orders to a tee. The other 'non-warrior' types though... yeah kind of a different story.

Mason will love her, no question. He’d love to study what makes her tick.

In that case, how do you feel about ship AI?

You know, I really hadn't considered it.

My main concern is that I plan on having us visiting various planets or other ships a lot. That might not leave a Ship AI with as much to do, since leaving the ship would he more difficult. You could be limited compared to the others.

But, we could probably think of work arounds. (Maybe a portable device that carries your program? Or an android body you can hope into?) If that's what you wanna do, go for it.

Portable devices, communication up to the ship when needed, and such. Plenty of workarounds, yus yus. I'll probably make the Shipboard AI and a normal character, so in case they're separated from the ship I have a second character to play.

This has my attention!

I'm putting a CS before the end of the day. I think you all need a science officer.

I was thinking the same. Gotta have at least one or two smarties on an exploratory ship

Agreed. Like I said expect my CS before the end of the day. Need to take the dog out for a walk...helps me think a little clearer.

Don’t worry. Everyone will get their turn to be dissected, I I mean treated.

An empath will be useful. I think I need a bit of clarification on one point, though. Can she "read" someone (by body language?) even when she's not telepathically sensing their emotions, or is all of her emotional perception because of telepathy?

It's more like just adding another layer to her perception check so to speak. She can read body language just fine without it, though when it doesn't work she can't double check and see if their emotions don't add up with what they're trying to show everyone. Also helps a lot if she can manage to read races with very subtle, or just plain contradictory, visual cues. Not all of her eggs are in the empathic basket.

Nice. Accepted. Glad we have an ambassador- we can't get along with aliens if we're ALL shoving guns in their faces

Hm, still thinking on the details o the CS, but I'm thinking a First Officer looks to be about right. Everyone needs a Riker to their Picard.
