Steve and Wes, as Im sure things get around from here... :-)
You both bring joy to mine ears reading this..THIS..well, ok SOME of THIS..this tech Ive seen.
And if I havent worked with it all, Ive seen snapshots of similar on TV.
GENE RODDENBERRY's EARTH series shows some similar to what you describe.
The ship's AI..how do i describe an ALLIANCE like vessel, and even if it meant a higher dimensional Federation craft, HOW does one describe Intelligence equal, and in some cases beyond themselves that IS a machine?
Ive used something like this before, and let me tell you...blink of an eye folks and your doing maneuvers you can only dream of. Its THAT sensitive!
Babylon 5 has a few similar vessels shown from the 'Angelic' like races hidden in suits..
Very advanced stuff..
portables...Ive heard some things, used others myself.
Nichole, as it were in the Sonic comics...thats more than a GPS and PDA unit the Princess carries around...FAR FAR MORE. I had Nichole on my arm at one point, hardened in stone back home within a statue i asked to be my epitapth. I believe Nichole was a gift to the Princess some time ago.
makes me wonder whats in part TWO...
And maybe the Commander has something on this....knowing WHAT is there, WHO is there....
the TECH that is...those that TRUELY know ME and where Im from..OH yes, I know you. No one else would dare speak of the statue in the Great Hall after i left, let alone contact the only one who KNEW where I was...Sara knew i left, but no, not a word from her since Dreamland..
Wouldnt have thrown my career away and gone to that Sirian-like space station otherwise..
and no, Lord Wolf told me about that..but yes, I was there. I remember. Kind of hard to forget a relationship like that with a Sirian female feline...and you knkow who Im talking about Mrs. Acorn....you knew I threw away my career when that NEWS broke... no matter how helpful it was to the locals.
..and yet I am HERE? Still blows my mind why 'I would choose' this archaic, back-ass wards life or existance HERE...no i dont think that the case...but no one wants to tell me Y about Dreamland... :( Just POOF up in smoke I go and the whole lot of you...not a word..
No one wants to tell me the secret I almost exposed... Surely not over the air... and Lord Wolf isnt telling me anytime soon, thats for sure. He's a dam ghost again... no ship, nowhere..as if something is keeping him here in agony.
No answers i wish I knew..NONE.
And all this TECH I KNOW how to operate.... not very usefil here, now is it, when the GOVT controls everything??
