Meanwhile Heaven is still drifting around in orbit, its a relaxing time
Currently in the bridge Sam is getting acquainted with his command crew
GW: As the primary ship AI my main task is to monitor and handle ship functions, action recommendations and advise are not part of my function, these jobs are allocated to your specialist officers here in the bridge
The Bridge is quite a spacious room, dotted around it are a number of control consoles and screens in which cyborgs are sitting and working away, every now and then they chatter to each other, working in perfect unison
When GW mentioned them it caught their attention
This makes operating Heaven much easier, I had been meaning to getting to know the bridge crew for some time as a matter of fact
GW: We currently have 6 officers stationed here, they are the chiefs and representatives of their respectful area, when asked, or when they feel necessary, they will provide vital information or status updates concerning their field
Very well, introduce me GW
As she introduces each officer they turn around and give a nod to Sam acknowledging their selves to him
GW: The officers are as follows, I will also elaborated on there speciality….
He is in charge of all conventional weapon and ordnance systems aboard Heaven from simple anti fighter turrets to the primary MAC cannons he will provide you with information on each and set about managing there targets and operation.
This makes him the crushing iron fist of Heaven
He is in charge of all complex electrical systems and cyber warfare aboard Heaven, when needed he will employ the best strategies to counteract anything digitally aggressive or engage enemies using the ships hyper advanced weaponry, aswell as this role he is also in charge of the sensory systems and radars.
He is effectively the eyes of Heaven aswell as its articulated precise jabbing punch.
Is at the helm of all correspondence to and from Heaven, he also operates the sensor systems covering the communication’s array, his job is simple, to keep an eye on information traffic and chatter.
This makes him the ears and mouth of Heaven.
This one is in charge of the ships mechanical systems as well as their maintenance and repair, his main roles see him keeping an eye on Heavens prime power core, energy levels and check ups on everything from simple sliding doors in the hallways to the great airlock doors of the hanger bays, he is also the head person in charge of keeping track and maintaining all ships and vehicles in Heavens inventory additionally he will report hull damage and give situation reports concerning Heavens integrity.
His role makes him the undying and strong heart of Heaven
His role is a very important one, he is the one to talk to if any sort of movement or course planning needs to be made and executed, he oversee’s Heavens piloting and propulsion use, as well as its manoeuvring and docking. When the Slipspace Drive has been fully completed he will also oversee its operation and use, planning warp jumps and shocking in shocking out manoeuvring.
This officer is the delicate and agile sense of direction of Heaven aswell as its situational awareness.
Currently he is hardly required as Heaven is not holding any more personnel other than its required crew, when we extract what is left of the PMC’s from the Paris rendezvous he will begin his true role, which is crew/passenger management and logistics handling, he is semi-autonomous and will only create orders outside of his normal protocol when asked but until then he will provide people with rooms, food and entertainment as well as medical check up timetables and military training. When we take aboard the extra troops Heaven will fill its role as a flying city sufficiency, those empty habitation decks will be quickly gleaming with life and bustle making this officer very handy to have around indeed…
His role makes him the very essence of Heavens namesake itself.
My only true role here is running the systems, these officers use me as a conduit in which they feed through there commands, I am essentially a gateway
Sam looks around at his crew he is happy to have them
Im glad to finally meet you all and understand your positions, im sure that will you are all highly valuable assets to this operation and will no doubt prove yourselves when the time comes, expect me to ask for regular check ups from you all, im always inquisitive as to my ships status and operation.
Sundowner: This will save us much time
The officers turn to face Sam
We will start with the regular check ups now, your area status’s
Warfare Officer: All weapon systems are fully operational and stocked with munitions, we haven’t fired a single bullet yet
Electronics Officer: All networks ad systems are in working order and running well, nothing hostile has been detected on any sensor arrays
Communications Officer: Zero communications addressed for bridge, information flow is normal, crew chatter shows no sign of alert or distress
Engineering Officer: Propulsion systems are in working order, ship equipment and systems are fine too, no issues here other than the Slip space Drive but you already know of the problem. Hull integrity is 100 percent, not a scratch. Vehicle inventory is fine, no issues with the hardware.
Navigation Officer: No issues here, all navigation and piloting equipment is ace, currently we have no course, engines are shut off and we are resting in a nominal speed orbit above Mobius.
Habitation Officer: We are more than capable of handling our current crew capacity, everyone is getting there basic health requirements and accommodation, Numbers are as follows…
8,954 cybernetic crew members, the last of what remained of Desperado and the time hole, this group covers everyone from maintenance, freight handling to gunners and pilots.
1,699 Intelligence, a more important group, consisting of administration cyborgs who work together to operate all of Heavens digital systems from power management, sensory arrays and munitions handling
1,534 Fabricators, the illusive and estranged cybernetic Fabricators stay on their own dedicated deck still going about there un-orthodox research and development into potential ground breaking tech aswell as maintaining the cyborg crew. their deck is sealed off to lower ranking personnel however.
And that is all, we currently have no dedicated soldiers aboard or civilians/refugees….
Back to Sam
Right good, thankyou crew, it always puts my mind at ease knowing the situation.
They nod their heads once more
Meanwhile back down in the hanger where Spark landed The Prophets have turned their attention to the flyer, they walk towards it, detecting other life signs
Truth: We must request that you exit this vehicle
Tolerance: We must address all visitors to Heaven
