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?

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

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
