Chimeratron Recon Fighter
I am developing an advanced series of craft of cyborg alien creatures who will add a new dimension of concern to the COP and the UNE. Could these two warring cultures be forced into peace by a new threat to the galaxy or will one of them break through the mystery surrounding the advanced technology base of the cyborgs and use it to overcome their enemy? We will see...
About this creation
Galaxy Today

Local – New Caledonia

New Caledonian Confederacy officials reported the discovery of a strange craft of troubling nature. Both Coalition of Planets and United Nations of Earth scientists are on their way to this planet located on the outer edge of human occupied space. Initially the reports were written off as Mysterion craft or possibly a ploy by local planetary government to attract tourism. This has proven unfounded and science vessels from both the COP and the UNE will arrive next month to investigate the discovery.



Reports are that the object was found by an asteroid miner harvesting an outer belt of the Confederacy Territory. Mr. Figgy Penderghast, a veteran miner, is credited with the find. His description of the unusual craft may be overstatement, but also of great concern. The vehicle is described as very different and of distinct red and black coloration with what may be attempts at repair in discolored areas. There are rumors of unknown power sources and drive systems as well as rumors about the sole occupant. This may, in fact, be the first contact with what some scientists speculate are the remains of a former civilization.



Galaxy Today is working to have more information released under the Freedom of Information Act but since there is a state of War that exists at this time, that information release is proving difficult. Meanwhile, New Caledonian Officials are more forthcoming, but messenger craft are still en route. We will have more information and photos as they become available.

Science Academy of New Caledonia
Briefing to the Archon
Comm Release -- General

Brief Begins:

Chimeratron – (Ky-‘mera-tron) a genetic and cybernetic hybrid of unknown origin which, with the cyber implants removed superficially resembles an octopus or a squid. They have great intellect and manipulative power; live in a saline enhanced nutrient bath rather than an atmosphere; and are xenophobic in the extreme destroying anything that is not like them. Chimeratron have no spoken language and do not communicate in any manner we have yet to discover. They do seem to communicate with each other however and fight in a coordinated and highly adaptive manner according to combat survivors.

General:

They were first discovered in one of the asteroid belts of New Caledonia by a miner who found one of the Chimeratron fighters and its organically dead pilot mostly buried in a composite type ‘roid.

The Chimeratron craft are a distinct coloration of black, red and light or lime green, have mainly energy weapons of massive power, an unknown type of power source and are faster but less maneuverable than most human craft. The ships also resemble the Chimeratron’s as they have organic-mechanical tentacles that can be used to crush smaller craft or to attach to larger craft where they have been know to drain power, infect computer systems with parasite virus programs and to even destroy themselves in order to significantly damage capital ships.

The fighters can be seriously damaged by rail cannon and combined missile fire, but energy weapons are no threat due to an extremely strong EM field that disrupts energy in the immediate surroundings of the craft. Whether this is a defensive measure or a natural part of the drive system is unknown. Certain parts of all craft have been seen to “grow” back if given time to do so. This is due to the highly advanced aero gel and Nano-scale carbon fiber construction of these ships. More massive ships exist but are rarely seen.

When attacking, the Chimeratron broadcast on wide spectrum radio frequencies a high pitched noise that some have equated to a scream. Additionally, all tentacles reach forward toward the target. This cue enables most experienced Allied pilots to take evasive action before the attack.

There are rumors but no substantiated evidence that the Chimeratron have planet-side ground attack vehicles.

Biology:

The organic component of Chimeratron is a creature that superficially resembles an octopus or a squid, but only in the very most general sense can it be referred to as a cephalopod. It has a usual body color of space black (though red and purple have been found) with two green “horns” that are actually ultra-violet photoreceptors. The have eight tentacles they use for manipulating their environment, and 2 more sensory filaments that are deployable. They have a very low metabolism so they do not need much food and a blue blood coloration that is highly efficient at the absorption of oxygen due to its high affinity hemocyanin make up. Both food and oxygen are supplied from the nutrient bath environment and they seem to thrive in 5% to 9% air saturation.

At maturity the creatures are over 6 foot or 1.83 meters in length. They have no ink sacs but the tips of the tentacles can emit a powerful electrical discharge when startled or threatened. They also have a large brain and a nodal neurological system or in essence, one supercomputer with four desktops networked together.

Very little more is known as only dead Chimeratron have so far been viewed.



Technology:

Chimeratron technology is far in advance of human technology levels -- but also oddly limited. The cybernetic implant technology seems to completely integrate the organic creature with its craft. The pseudo-organic appearance of the craft and its motion is created by a complex electronic control system, massive use of electrified aero-gel forms and carbon fiber “Bucky tubes”. While we understand and can even recognize individual items, the way they are integrated and the function is far beyond us. In point of fact, the drive system and related components including the gravimetric fields generated around their vehicles is so alien to our fundamental understanding of the universe, we are at a loss toward developing a working theory.

We also have indications that the essential technology of the Chimeratron has remained unchanged for several hundred years.

There seems to be little to no communication, at least as we understand the term.

Weapons:

Weapons systems for the Chimeratron are odd yet powerful. The emitter located in the end of each ship tentacle is of incredible power. The larger the tentacle size, the weaker the long range power. The smaller tentacles, red tipped and usually green in color and nearly one-quarter the size of the much larger black tentacles has an observed energy output equivalent to the MAC gun of a capital battle craft.

The larger tentacles have been observed to grab onto equal or larger sized craft, to crush smaller craft (including life pods), and once attached to a hull, to use their emitters to cut into ships hulls and deeply damage large craft of all types.

There are reports of other weapons systems including capitol ships and even a claimed sighting of a planet side walker weapon, but they seem to be very rare if they exist at all.

________________________________________










Note: What if someone took a Vampire squid, genetically altered it to have electrical generation capabilities as an electric eel, increased intelligence, and made it the size of a human adult male and gave it the temperament of a Moray eel. Thus the genetic term “chimera” -- this means having characteristics of two or more creatures in one or hybridization. Then add to that mix either the technology of the Borg from STNG or the Shadows of Babylon 5 or some mix of both and you have the Chimeratron. Lego makes the big octopus and it is found in some of its ocean sets. I never had a use for either of mine – until now… (evil laugh)

Further note for the future story line: The Chimertron visible spectrum is in the ultraviolet range far above human visual perception.

Very cool concept, I really like the idea of a living spacecraft. It was really fun to read the whole bio, too. Great job and keep 'em coming!

Quoting Christian Schlichting good story, good alienlike mysterious design. Remembers me of the bioships from Species 8472 in Star Trek. Tip for better presentation: mix text and pictures. People will be more inspired to read if the text doesn't look too big and "blocky" in the whole post.
I agree -- I just have not had much time to fix the page to not be "blocky". Thanks for the comments.
