    @Joeakuaku maybe?
    I thought that it was a reference to "Aurora Borealis" or the northern aurora of earth

    Phenomenal. Amazing. This is what my summer will be spent on - sitting in my perfectly plush office chair and spamming the refresh button.

    No. The ship that crashed was called the Aurora. Normally, Borealis does come after that word when referring to the Northern Lights phenomena. This is the sequel of "Aurora Falls." Instead of Aurora, it's Borealis - similarly, instead of falls, it's rising. Makes for an epic title.

    GOD do i love all the AIs ''persona'' details, how they function in your world as well as exploration and explanation of their character traits! I would give 2 ''Awesome'' to your last section if i could, sadly i cannot ....

    Isn't the borealis the strange ship in portal2 and half life that went missing from the aperture dock. Or am I thinking of the wrong thing hear?

    I like how JUNO and IANTO are pretty much DIGBY's parents.

    I think you are, but it would be interesting if the actual ship teleported instead of using warp drive.

    And all from a small bit of salt.

    Fantastic!! Keep up the good work!!

    A bio reactor that does total matter-energy conversion!??!?!?!

    What's so weird about that I mean they have anti matter power plants and long range energy transfer trough simple crystals.
    Remember scifi setting :smiley:

    Well, that's true, but the minor problem with it is that ... Well, assume that those bowls of oatmeal they all just ate were half a kilogram, net. Because that assumption makes the math simple. And what the math says is that if you convert that oatmeal directly to energy with no solid waste left behind, that's 44.95 petajoules of energy. Or to put it another way, roughly 10.5 megatons equivalent nuclear yield. (Roughly 21kt per gram.) Or to look at it a third way, 12.5 terawatt-hours of power.

    They're not going to be able to afford to eat very often without figuring out something to do with all of that energy.

    Precisely. And as well, there is no way that any sort of biological process could ever perform a 100% energy conversion. That just isn't possible with a chemical reaction. The only way to do that would be with antimatter.

    So, I take it no-one's heard of the 'slow pyrolysis' process.

    There's no pleasing some folks.

    Extremely in-depth, good find.

    Well ..... in order to spend all that energy Alexander could teach them androids other parts of the human nature!
    What do you think humans did back then during the evenings, before Television was invented :wink:

    What is Inflatable Ingrid?

    Oh.....baby! This is epic! Whenever I finish a section, my body takes control of itself and starts clapping insanely. I love this. This is what summer is all about :smiley:

    I find myself rating Bugzapper's new entries before even reading them, I'm enjoying the story that much.
    I'd be scared in Selkirk's position right now, superior synthetic body or not. If there are survivors they're probably clinically insane at this point.
