Origin of a Spaceship: Burst

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Burst
Background
The fossil records of the burst track it back to one of the oldest, non-predatory frigates. Located deep in the heart of the Minmatar nebula, the Burst were first overlooked as being pseudo-spaceships due to their odd structure and lack of apparent behavior characteristics. It was not until a comprehensive catalog of flora was being done that the Burst was observed in action.

A larg group of cruisers sank deep into the thick, dust of the Nebula. At the heart of these clouds spaceships uses the dust to scrape parasites from their hulls. It was at this time that the first swarm of burst were seen covering a cruiser fleet. However, these small, flat spaceships were not attacking nor being attacked. Rich beams of energy flowed across the cruisers who held perfect still as the Bursts scraped their hulls clean and appeared to repair basic damage.

Observations
There are a handful of spaceships that fit into the mutualism specialization. The Burst appears to have started its existence with a more herbivorous appetite to asteroids. However, do the the proliferation of a hybridized bioengineered frigate known as the Venture, the Burst had to adapt to survive. This has drawn it out of the heart of the Nebula. A highly social frigate that depends on others, Bursts have been seen to insinuate themselves into frigate and occasional cruiser fleets where they adopt the migratory patterns of their new fleet.

Fragile and small Bursts use the thick, dust of the nebula as camouflage. The cleaning and repairs that they do tot he hulls of other spaceships appear to give them loose type of security.

Points of Note
It appears that the flat structure of the Burst's exoskeleton allow it to hug large chunk of nebula debris as camouflage deep in the crimson depths of the Minmatar nebula. Not all spaceships allow the Burst neutrality and they often use their natural camouflage to good effect.

The Burst is a well established species but rarely does it appear on the outer edges of the nebula. The largest concentrations are found deep in the heart of well established systems. However, with its habitat overrun, the Burst appears to have entered into a species wide colonization effort to the middle edges to the edges of the Minmatar nebula where it uses association for protection.

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
