Origin of a Spaceship: Incursus

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Incursus
  • A social and migratory frigate
  • A dedicated jouster
Background:
It is understood that the first fleets of Incursus were observed during the colonization of the solar system, Cat, in the Essence system.  The foundation of the Gallente Federation caused an explosion of civilization across this sector of space.  It was when several migrating fleets of Incursus devastated long caravans of barges that these frigates gained notice.  It was not long until orphaned  spaceships were domesticated and swiftly worked their way to the front of the Gallente Navy.

Observations:
It has been noted that Incursus are fleet spaceships.  Their large migratory trips span the entire width of the Gallente Federation.  The migration appears to be constant if long term.  These frigates have proven to be a hardy species, prone to low fatigue over long trips.

The highly social nature of the Incrusus makes it an excellent front line ship.  In domestication, Incruses are used as both scouts and initial assault spaceships.  Their tough, exterior armor is duel layered and self repairs at a rapid speed when provided the proper nanite diet.

Due to its highly developed social skills, the Incursus has proven swift and reliable to train.  Incursus are highly sought after by new capsuleers.  Many will eventually acquire their own, personal herd.  The loyalty of these frigates is astonishing.  Many capsuleers can release their frigates to migrate with the wild fleets only to have them respond to trained sequences years later.  This fierce loyalty makes the Incursus a frigate that will never be bypassed by an active, efficient Navy.

Points of Note:
The Incursus is equipped with a large spear on one side of the spaceship.  This spear is seen on each ship and does not appear to differentiate in size by gender or fleet position.  Normally, sharp protrusions are seen on spaceship hybridism types bred by Sansha's Nation.  The Incursus appears to have come about its spear as part of its natural, evolutionary path.

Notation made of migratory fleets have shown Incursus jousting with these spears.  As the ships work their way up the fleet rankings the jousts become duels and at the level of Wing Commander they often end in death.  All spaceships are seen jousting and appears to prove an important role in venting the natural aggression of these spaceships.

Incursus are also known to cohabit with symbiotic drone pairs.

Technical Note:
The Incursus spear like, rigid limb is know as the stimulare pungere virga

Sub-Species:
Enyo
Ishkur

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

The lack of perfection

I had the pleasure of having Keskora Yaari. We met a bit after I started the CSM and hit it off. As friendships often do it developed into being about the people and not the medium that we met each other in. My new house has a guest room (my previous one was taken over by my mother who moved in and never moved out) and it was fun to have someone in that I could babble about a large part of my last six months of house renovations.

I tried to pamper and spoil her. Those are always the most fun things to do when a friend comes over. I did make sure she was stuffed full of local interesting things. It is only fair, after all. My abilities as a host have improved and I was pleased with myself.

One of our interesting links, outside of Eve, is dogs. We are both dog people. Over my years blogging I have discussed and shared time my creatures. From the passing of Nyx to the acquisition of Intuition. He is doing great by the way. He is two and a half now!


We discussed Eve some but it wasn't…
