Origin of a Spaceship: Dominix

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Dominix
  • A slow moving, drone hive, spaceship
  • Domi - Domi plural of domus, the Latin term meaning house or home

Background

It is a well documented piece of history that the original Dominix were not properly classified as spaceships for some time. Although discovery was swiftly made by the first survey teams, the Dominix was inappropriately classified as an organic nest believed to have been built by drones. The bulging, spheroid shape and the dull green-gray coloring camouflaged these ships well enough that entire flocks of Hulks and Mackinaw's would descend upon the slow, migrating fleets and attempt to mine them.
Due to their placid nature, the Dominix was one of the first domesticated spaceships in what would become defined as Family Gallente. There were arguments over the genus classification, but due to their hunting prowess and great size, Dominix were properly classified as genus Battleship.

Observations
The Dominix is an ancient species of spaceship. From fossil records, found in asteroids and dead planets, hull components of Dominix can be found. These components are often in line with current specimens  showing few if any transmutations that suggest an earlier representative of the species.

The spaceship is highly social and maintains a vast, intricate social structure in the complex size of the fleet. Remote repairs on older or injured members is commonly seen. Drones also appear to not have a particular individual in which they reside but consider the greater fleet to be their home.

The Dominix is an easy keeper. Its good temperament combined with its ease at reproduction have allowed for the creation of various, specialized Dominix in domesticated environments that can support turrets from lasers to smartbombs.

Other points of Note

The Dominix is only of the few clearly omnivorous spaceships in its native environment.

The size of the Dominix and its intrinsic relationship with drones has allowed it to have a symbiosis greater than many documented spaceships with drones. A Dominix can be sub-classified as a natural hive and the native environmental of drones. This has led to some wild fleets being classified as protected due to their harboring rare drone species.

Additional Facts:
From the Research Notes of Cheradeine Harper:

"Deep Space Anthropological research into communication methods with wild Dominix reveals a trinary core to their language rather than a binary base. 
Rather than label the three core components of this fascinating find with numbers, the researchers used syllables based on the sounds produced during translation. Currently the three syllables are referred to as "POH" "TAY" and "TOH"."

  2. In the first sentence under 'Other points of Note' a couple things. You don't need a comma in it and omnivorous is the correct use of the word here. Only things that really jumped out at me.
    Did you miss me?

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
