CoEAD, The first attempt at a Level III State of Being

The CoEAD/s Computer Entity Animation Device/System is the Ni'Calls first stab at creating a fully operational Computer/Organic Genetic Life-form System (C/OGLES), which completely modifies the structure of a life-form's brain, essentially changing all carbon-based systems into silicon-based systems, essentially turning a brain into a computer. CoEAD aims to suspend the animation of a being, however, and move the consciousness of a being into a computer mainframe. The experiments have so far been carried out with a collaboration between the Ni'Calls Institute of Genetic Research at Berjana, Calla's prevailing Medical Sciences Institute, and Talsenreave University, Calla's lead technological development Institute. The system is comprised of a vast electronic, analog, and genetic biological mainframe. The first time it was tested, it was used to coordinate a simulated attack counterstrike on a planetary outpost. The results were stunning, showing only one ship lost during the full-scale battle, and the complete withdrawal of the enemy. The system showed all of the best points of all of the systems involved, most notably the unique thinking process of the biological "motherboard", built around 13 test subjects, who volunteered for the project. This system was not completely reliable, however, and the subjects had to be removed for fear of infection due to incomplete integration to the system. This was due in part to the subjects biological nature in the tests, due to liability issues with completely undergoing the "steelification" procedure that would enable complete linking. Plans are being put into place to restart the project with completely ensured subjects, as well as a larger scale, real-time real-world test of the system's capabilities.

I was kinda making a report on a long list of drugs for different heart disorders while at the same time studying for an upcoming examination and graded demonstration regarding the administration of different forms of medications and their respective principles which are tantamount to the survival of their recipients.  :-\

So, I was pretty much busy and had little time to spare when the FC thread came out. Sorry for the misunderstanding.  :(

I'll have my post up in an hour or so, I'm still kinda thinking which race I'll use for this one and how I'll go with it.  :)


@Kitkat: Good luck on the Reen FC!  :)

Some information on the interior Talsenreave:

The station has no built in agressive devfensive systems (guns), only ablative shielding. What it does have is an enormous toroidal area capable of housing the Emancipator, among other ships, their own berths. This takes up very little of the space available. It's estimated that 50 percent of the active ships in the galaxy could fit comfortably in the docking bay. Think Earth Spacedock from star trek, with more than a few spatial compressors installed.

Running down the middle of the station, besides the equipment, is a huge drum providing old fashioned gravity to inhabitants. This area is large enough to encompass all major climates, including deep sea. Through a smaller drum spins that contains a fusion reactor, open on one side to act as a sun, providing the equivalent of a 30 hour day.

The station has a large city-like superstructure atop it, and due to the sheer amount of station there is, there is a slight gravity to it. On top of this a low-power gravitational system creates gravity about one eighth the typical gravity of a habitable planet. Residents are required to return to either their ship or the drum for a month after speding a week in the outside cityscape.

The station was extremely controversial when it was started, and many questioned the usefulness of such a structure, and the allocation of resources needed. Once it was operational, the station took fuel from an alternate reality, a "what-if universe" as the operators called it. It was named the Daravan Expanse, after a scientist who theorized its existence some years ago. It is a universe which expanded uniformly, creating a thin haze in all directions. It was deemed safe and "moral" to refuel there when it was determined that when the ship traveled there, it was necessary for there to also be a parallel universe where the ship did not travel there, thus saying that they actually weren't causing an impact on the natural beauty of the Expanse. Many still question the ramifications of such an action, however.

It's estimated that 50 percent of the active ships in the galaxy could fit comfortably in the docking bay. Think Earth Spacedock from star trek, with more than a few spatial compressors installed.

Running some high-end calcs, I found the following:


The Emancipator is 25 miles long.

Assuming a diameter and height of 38~ and 4~ Emancipators, respectively, there is approximately 182591~ cubic kilometers of parking space inside the toroid.


Let's take the Orealyianis Stellar Navy, since that's what I'm most familiar with, and thus make me less liable to mess up the calcs.

Anyways, the current OSN is composed of nine fleets, with the First Fleet having an assortment of 1,000,000~ vessels in active service. The Second to Fifth Fleets have 500,000~ each, and the rest have 300,000~ each. The combined force would then be 4,200,000~ strong.

Assuming a composition of 25% Frigates, 29% Destroyers, 17% Auxiliaries, 25% Phase Ships and 4% Carriers, the total volume consumed by the vessels would be 9,902,229,750~ cubic kilometers. 50% of that would be 4,951,114,875~ cubic kilometers.


The OSN's relatively small portion alone would, at the least, fill the toroid 27,115 times over, let alone the everyone else's.


 :-\


Maybe we could say it uses compression technology?   :)

Because I could really see this as a very important function of the ship, in case we have to deal with hostiles when launching expeditions to other universes, which, knowing our races' luck, is probably gonna end up in a war.   ;)

Nice.

SCIENCE!TM-tists have to get some R&R sometime.   8)

Nice touch there.   :)

Microgravity can really cause some pretty wonky, and not to mention dangerous, things to most creatures' bodies.

*head explodes*

Regardless, w00t! Free and practically unlimited fuel!   ;D

I really like that place. Hopefully, we find an identical universe in the future, but made of anti-matter instead. Such a universe can both be a fuel source and a weapon.   8)

Whoops, I thought that, I guess I thought it would just be assumed. But yeah, it would be compressed.

So what we've basically got here is a station so big it can house about every ship in the galaxy, and draws power from a different universe. That's just cool.

I was thinking earlier - If we have artificial gravity, could we somehow use it to propel ships? No need for nuclear power or whatever. Of course, if my memory is correct we were using a fictional metal that creates gravity fields when electrical currents run through it. That means we need electricity from...someplace.
I came, I saw, I went back to bed.

Basically, something like this...



For our first few runs, we can use a relatively small amount of seed energy and go up from there.

That monster of a station probably has an unholy number of giant batteries. ;D So it wouldn't be much of a technical hurdle trying to get it started.

We probably won't strike gold the first couple dozen times, making initial operations very expensive and time consuming. But once/if the station does happen upon the anti-matter twin of the Daravan Expanse or something similarly lucrative, I'll we'd be rich. ;D

Also, once the technology becomes efficient enough, we can finally have ourselves something akin to Gridfire. ;)

Talsenreave goodies! I actually have some few pictures I lost, but I never got around to uploading them at all... So here's some I made today.

A schematic of the station's inner workings. You can see the unholy amount of giant tanks and batteries and goodies that power the station on one of the "outriggers", the other is now cutaway. In actuality there are four. The drum should be more compressed as well, and longer. I also included a snazzy Talsenreave logotype ;)

I'm rather proud of this one. It shows the Habitation Drum with the big reactor pylon going down the middle, and the artificial sun at its center. I drew the center pylon at the wrong angle; it should mostly be facing downward. Anyway, you can see the continents on the opposite side of the drum, at night, glowing. Including one for an aquatic race! The cities are actually a bit large in the drawing.

This one's actually older. It shows a completed Talsenreave in orbit. you can faintly see the supporting city on the planet's surface, and through the Space Gate you can make out the Emancipator and an escort fleet heading for the station.
In both the outside pictures I included the Death Star for size comparison  :D

Uh...the Death Star was the size of a decent moon...your scale looks kinda bodcus here. Especially in the bottom picture, Talsenreave should dwarf the planets, as in the planets being MAYBE a fourth the size of Talsenreave, if that's the scale you're going on.

The Death Star was only 90 miles in diameter.
