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.

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…

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…

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 that t…
