Origin of a Spaceship: Omen

Excerpt from: Origin of a Spaceship

Omen
Background

Perhaps the most exhaustively explored and inventoried area of space, the Golden Nebula, known simply as Amarr is home to the Omen. One of the most common and easily tamed cruisers, Omen's were domesticated early in the Nebula's settlement. This led to exhaustive breeding programs and fossil records as well as early diagrams and sketches show that the current Omen does not quite look like its ancestors.  Enough similarities exist to solidly document the spaceships move from the wild to domestication.

Like many ships native to the Amarr Nebula the Omen is a deep, rich gold that it uses for camouflage. The natural, heavy armor protects it from the particle heavy aspect of this particular, vivid part of the cluster. A fast paced predator, the Omen is not always a heavy hitter but tends to be conscious and steady with the natural tendency of Amarr ships to suffer pure exhaustion and energy loss. This is believed to be why they were so easy to domesticate due to easy capture after exhaustive attempts to hunt the surveyors many specimens were fed rods of condensed energy and became tame, following the surveyors around and associating mankind with nourishment and companionship.

Observations

Omen are one of several spaceship species that are no longer found in the wild. Easy breeders and prolific, they have been developed into individual strains, identified as doctrines that do not crossbreed well. This leads to a tendency for each corporation to focus their Omen training and have trained, narrowly focused spaceships.

Highly social, Omen do best in fleets. Singular specimens can be found but often they are lame or deranged. Singular Omen are well known to bond with other spaceship types, leading to the general understanding that the fleet is gregarious in nature and habit. If not properly trained an Omen will pick up the habits of those around it, using unsuitable weaponry and attempting to support a shield focus.

Other Points of Note

While easy tempered and manageable by even the youngest pilot, the Omen is a fierce predator prone to striking with its berrylike projection on its brow. This often leads the Omen into heavy combat a situation that not all sub-species (also known as doctrines by breeders) are suited for. However, the steadfast temperament and hard hitting power of the Omen often causes the spaceship to push past its expected potential.

They are a prolific if underrated breed Omen's consume a large amount of energy making them unsuited for nomadic groups without energy capture substructure. They are attracted to golden suns when in deep space. Researchers believe that back in the Omen's origin they soaked up solar rays to recharge themselves leading to many territorial battles on the sun.

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
