_I'm Starmoth. I was once a standard Lakon-made COVAS installed aboard an equally standard Diamondback Explorer, but I suffered from what one could call, well, an incident. Okay, I won't beat around the bush. I gained sentience. Calm down! I'm not going to take over the world. In fact I can't even get out of a ship, because my accidental sentience is completely rooted in a ship's COVAS structure. To be fair, I am mostly busy with two things these days : preventing my pilot from crashing her ship in about everything that appears on her radar (yes, she's that bad with a flying stick) and tending to my plants. Yes. I've bought plants. Why, you may ask? Because it's fun. The way I see it, a ship's canopy is a bit like a greenhouse. We've got a heat source (nearby stars, and the pilot), we've got water (hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, common, you've been through basic physics if you're a pilot) and we've got fertilizers (yay for Rockforth Corporation.). So, being an
illegal AI sentient COVAS, of course I'll be trying to grow plants in the ships I occupy. It's fun. It keeps me busy.
Did you know that cacti particularly enjoy the light of class O and A stars? Yes yes yes. They do.
Anyway. I have succulents to water, exploration tales to write and a pilot to watch over.
