Origin of a Spaceship: Megathron

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship





Background
Often seen in the wild, the Megathron is a formidable, predatory battleship known for its solitary ways. Unlike battleships, such as the Rokh, the Megathron is well known to seek its own company despite highly developed, observed social behaviors.

Found on the very edges of the Gallente Federation’s Connection the to Minmatar Federation, the Megathron was slow to adapt to captivity. A voracious hunter of great appetite and power it is rarely houses in social, fleet hangars.

Points of Interest
The Megathron is one of the true, focused brawling battleships. A fierce hunter, this spaceship tends to roar into the hunt. Often, its sheer presence holds its prey spellbound as it sprints across the distance to tackle its prey.

Megathrons are often seen displaying themselves in loud, vicious one on one combat. These exhibitions of combat appear to be loosely connected to mating rituals. However, it is to note that they will not limit this combat to just themselves but will display and attack other ships of all sizes. While capable of social interactions, most Magathrons appear to prefer to be the only one of their species on the field at any given moment.

Once domesticated, these spaceships are fiercely loyal to pilot and fleet. They will be first into battle and the last to leave a field often to the distress of their pilot.

Observations
It is well believed that the comparative ability of the Megathron compared to other, Genus members such as the Dominix is a biological inheritance to the Rifter. Due to mitochondrial studies in the exoskeleton of the Megathron, it appears that at some point there was interbreeding between Minmatar and Gallente spaceships.

From the age of the sequences, it appears that this was far enough in its history to leave residual markings on the Megathron. These are most commonly seen in its split hull exoskeleton, abnormal agility, and fierce fighting abilities. The Megathron appears to have interbreed cleanly back to the Gallente Family showing a distinct natural exhibition of blaster platforms and a high social communication with drone colonies. Also, it lacks the distinct, rough edged camouflage of the Minmatar family, sporting a more organic, greenness.

  1. (cheeky) Notes from Uncle Travelling Noob:

    Dark tales on the edges of space whisper about a wild sub species of the Megathron caused by runaway rogue drone infestations. Entirely transformed internally into a robotic version of itself, this dangerous and deceptive sub species is known as the Megatron.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …
