Press any key to awaken. **** Basic concept is a rogue AI built for the Joint Catastophe Network which was initiated by a scientist who died of a rattlesnake bite. The survivors found Kilobyte to an oracle of great knowledge, but they sometimes lacked the necessary skills to interpret it. The Civ should be Organised and Scientific, with starting skills that have a definite leaning towards the Computers technology. The Civ should use every SF cliche in it's dialog (e.g. the greeting should be "Live Long and Propser" whilst an invitation to swap maps might be preface "Can you help us in our mission to seek out new life and civilizations?") City Names ought to be taken from Star Wars, Star Trek, B5, etc. So something like... 1. Sol-3 2. Tattooine 3. Vulcan 4. Hoth 5. Minbar 6. Centauri Prime 7. Medusa Cascade 8. Gallifrey 9. Mungo 10. Dune I'm sure someone can fill in the rest... The figurehead ought to be a hazy image like a dead TV screen. Flag: A computer screen?
