Origin of a Spaceship: Cyclone

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Cyclone



Background:
Cyclones are one of the older sub-species of Minmtar Battlecruiser. Tamed early during the settlement of New Eden, the Cyclone has long been a sturdy, but simple workhorse. However, recently crossbreeding with Caldari stock has introduced a missile based turret system as the expense of increased size.

Observations"
Mild natured, the Cyclone is stoic in nature. A calm, patient spaceships, Cyclone's are willing to stalk their targets often imitating other, more docile spaceships. Although they can function alone, in warfare, Cyclone's excel at group operations, working well with each other. They are also highly tolerant of frigates and unlike Hurricane's and other spaceships who favor larger sized medium projectile turrets, the Cyclone has few concerns around frigates, making it more ideal for newer owners.

Once highly versatile, the change in the breeding program for domesticated Cyclones has caused the domesticated species to become a more focused, task oriented spaceship.

Other points of note:

It must be noted that the phenomenon known as 'Space' is dark for a typical human eye which will respond to wavelengths from about 390 to 700 nm. In terms of frequency, this corresponds to a band in the vicinity of 430–790 THz. It is believed that spaceships have a similar visual range as humans. Vision is a secondary consideration considering the abundant nature of sensory input and may be a vestigial remnant of an earlier evolutionary state.

However, the Cyclone has an extremely large set of forward illuminators suggesting a nocturnal or deep-space origin. It may have used its massive, forward array to find prey cloaked in asteroid fields.

Comments

  1. Notes from Uncle Travelling Space Noob: The Cyclone solar panel fringe is rumoured to be an adaptation of an earlier threat mechanism, called a hood, commonly found in snakes, a common planetary reptile form. Originally raised only to ward off predators when threatened the environment of New Eden where threat is permanent has resulted in a permanently raised hood on the Cyclone.

    Rumours persist in low sec bars of other snake based ships, such as the Cobra, the Fer-de-lance and the Asp. Most dismiss these rumours as elements of an early VR capsuleer training environment.

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

Memoirs - Part Seven: The Taste of Scandal

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX Viewers get some drama Is there any election that is scandal free? Virtual space politics are not excluded. Sometimes the scandals come from the people ruining. Sometimes they come from outside of that. “I can’t wait to enjoy the drama!” someone had said to me about the election. Those words would haunt me later as I fought not to be caught up and defined by the decisions another person had made. While I played the game and tried to convince people of my worthiness a dark drama was sweeping across the game. The CSM does not dictate game policy. CCP does that. It does not stop many from seeing the members as vocal representatives. It was a public post made by one member of the CSM that started a fire that would take years to go out. Eve Online is an interactive video game with few social rules. It is one of the games charmes. If you can trick another player into making a po

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
