Here's the Reader's Digest Version of Ship.
Carpet? I'm trying to give you a better visual in my recent writing though for now you don’t need to be concerned with that as he’s missing.
Ship? She talks - but you can't 'see' her. She’s aware of most that goes on but like any living being not everything that goes on within her
‘body’ so there’s a lot of sway there.
The Ship itself is bio-metal etc, really just go with it - help 'groom' her for all of us. There have been few specifics.
I mean, if you keep in mind she's as 'bio' as possible - strong when she needs to be strong and giving when she needs to be giving then you'll be all
set. (Throw something against a wall, it gives. You fall and reach out for the wall to catch you, it will). She‘s like a smart home. Her bio‘s
helps out as the situation calls for.
Colors, sizes, shapes, all that - there isn‘t enough that‘s been clarified and nailed down to worry about specifics.
Ship has working droids, security droids, any kind a droid you need. They range from older version who are like the droids in Star Wars to the
Humanoid Droids in later sci-fi (utterly indistinguishable from humanoids). They’re a motley crew as Ship had scrounged them up - with Chumley’s
help - from Ship graveyards, etc, second hand droid sellers, lol, and such.
Her floors (three that we've spoken of but who knows if She has more?) are laid out in a circular fashion around her middle - The Center.
The Center - though transparent looking from the outside really contains 'Ship's Center' accessible by a 'mammoth door' - or through access 'caves' -
again - no one knows how many or how few.
Ship's Center is a replica of earth, massive and wild.
So really, have fun with it. I for one am really going to enjoy seeing what you do with Her. As long as the 'Center' (location) doesn't change the
rest of her is pretty much up for your creative input.
Who else is aboard? Deson? He's the horse-like-creature and the Armour - who sticks to his armory and the docking bays. Passion for weapons, and
machines - bio or not. He’s stogy, opinionated, very upright, no humor, etc.
Deez is the problem at the moment on board.
He's a small rat like creature that can change into a monster when he's provoked. He has an implant called 'My Eye' that controls him. The
controller? We don't know yet.
From an old story line of Studious - there are some cocoons hidden 'somewhere' outside Ship proper but before the internal wilds of the Center (maybe
an air access duct room? Dunno). The cocoons contain missing captains and crew of the Yydryl and the Penelope boarding party. I don’t think
names at this point are important.
Deez? He eats, and then keeps the cocoons 'alive' by regurgitating for them. Snake like tentacles whip out and fight over the food then keep the
cocoons and residents therein alive. But unless you and Neno want to deal with this it isn’t really important.
Why? Because we do not know the fate of Deez, who he's controlled by, who exactly is in the cocoons anymore, why they're being kept on Ship and
(here's the BIG ONE for me) WHY Ship doesn't know they're aboard.
I don't know if you and Neno want to tackle the ‘cocoon’ subject or not.
For me - I'll just go with whatever comes up but honestly I'd rather stick with the Neno thing and finally get to the Dark Lord and the Big Rip and
see what happens with the cocoons later. I have a feeling that side of the story will write itself if we concentrate on the Big Rip and the Dark Lord
- or whoever the bad guys are.
Whatever direction you want to go in is fine, I’ve no plans other than to get Silo well, get Adam and Dag settled in and keep them as far from
Bransom as possible. Also, I want to expose Chumley’s culpability in being the one that originally brought Silo aboard, but those are all little
things in the big picture I hope you and Neno will paint. I’ve no idea how to handle the Big Rip and will do all I can to support you two but I
don’t know how much I’ll be able to offer. It’s beyond my understanding for real.
