    A spaceship of your own

    Post by Almael on 8/8/2012, 4:29 pm

    All right, lets talk about your ship.
    You are an independent entrepreneur. You are a trader, tro-con, merc, pirate, scientist etc.
    For starters technology isn't the focus, but you may mention it anyway. Share your thoughts and or work.

    Case 1:
    You start out.
    What should your ship have to offer? What must it have?

    Case 2:
    You are doing well and are a veteran in the business.
    You got enough money for anything you need but it's not like you want to waste it.
    What should your ship have to offer? What must it have?

    Case 3:
    You are famous and have money to no end.
    What should your ship have to offer? What must it have?
    What else?

    -----------------
    My example
    Case 1:
    *For my small interplanetary ship I would like it to be able to land on an earth like planet (ground/water) with a motorbike/jetski for ground mobility
    *I would like the cockpit and sleeping/living area separated
    *enough space for a companion
    *separation of toilet and washing area
    *a cargo bay, however small
    *an air lock

    Case 2:
    *For my small interstellar ship I would like it to be able to land on an earth like planet (ground/water) with a car/boat for ground mobility
    *at least a complete set of rooms like a small house
    *at two cargo bays or perhaps a shuttle bay
    *perhaps a small crew

    Case 3:
    *cruiser size interstellar ship with a crew
    *a suit, rooms, lounges, recreation rooms for the crew
    *a shuttle bay with big enough a shuttle, and small private shuttle
    *passenger space
    *extra cargo bays for crew and private stuff

    This should be Seikai related, or it could be anything? Set tech level/limitations...

    Just general thoughts. Of course no god-ship but you can name the tech universe you want it to be from. I guess that would solve confusion regarding technology.

    Ok, let's see...

    First something of my own:
    My ship is a big millitary cuiser which is operated entirely by powerfull AI computer and robots. It has it's own automatic manufacturing plants that can repair/modify/or even make new robots. The ship computer is communicating with me via neural interface i wear on the head (we can exchange thoughts and i can "see" what computer sees via sensors, the simulations etc.) ...
    The ship is a deep space patrol and exploration vessel and a small army of robots of it's own (including anumber of fighters). It is of modular design, it can modify itself, can attach additional facilities (become larger). It is even capable of building docks/factories on asteroids that mine ore and make robots or even other ships (although they still must be controlled by extremely complex computer which is impossible to replicate in space)
    A living space for human personell is only a small part of the ship, although it's very well designed with enough space, entertainment, sports etc. for a small crew. We even have large screen, Xbox 920, and music machine! Very Happy

    I once had a story in mind with a ship like this..too bad i'm not too good at writing stuff Razz

    I see, a realistic sized ship as well as close to a colony ship perhaps. Although, I do think production ability is a must have for interstellar ships for long term use.

    Interesting. Well, you did well from what I saw.
