Each ship is 80 meters long with long two storey rotating habitation ring 40 meters in diameter and 6 meters wide and weighs about a thousand tonnes. Half of the area of the habitation ring is put over to hydroponic gardens and meat culture stations to supply food, but their are also a series of large scale automated farming stations to provide specialist crops. The rest is given over to living space which includes several bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, an infirmary and bridge (a command room with a command chair). The default decor is fairly neutral and minimalist though it does allow a wide range of customization. Each ship has a mechanical pressure spacesuit for all residents for making spacewalks. Each ship has a top acceleration of 0.2g and can perform a 180 degree turn in a minute. They also can generate a powerful shield bubble 160 meters in diameter which can take up to a 20kt of damage before it's projectors burn out. Each ship is part of the Q-net, an internet using quantum entanglement based communications.
Each ship has a set of ore processors and fabricators, both for making household goods as well as making larger external projects. Each ship is capable of setting up an set of fabricator satelites in a few months which, if supplied Raw Materials can build a new Starship in a year's time. It also has blueprints for drop pods (more on those in a bit) and (with some reasonable limitations) can accept new blurprints for human designed space stations and ships.
Each ship is mostly automated. It has a central AI and a staff a hundred six limbed spider-like robots ranging in size from 15cm to 1 meter across stored on several racks. These do a wide variety of tasks including cleaning, farming, providing medical care, repairing the ship, mining, defending against attack and assembling new ships. Said AI knows it's human owner and interacts with them via a holographic avatar (more specifically a recreation of Frank Sinatra).
In general the AI (here-to referred to as Cyber-Sinatra) is quite intelligent and good natured. He's also a good doctor and can fabricate medicine. He will do what he's commanded to do by his master in most situations. However, he won't do the following thing...
- Ram the ship any planets or Starships.
- Allow his Fabricators to build explosives, firearms or ship mounted weapons. At the same time he'll have his drones take apart any guns or missiles that others might attempt to strap to them.
- Follow orders to kill people (for example if you tell him to space someone who's in the airlock without a spacesuit he won't comply)
- Follow certain orders when the user is inebriated or is deemed to be mentally unstable.
- Build another ship with similar capacities which does not have the same AIs or reprogram them.
If you feel like going back down the well, each ship can fabricate a landing craft which can deliver 4 people safely to the surface of any terrestrial body on the solar system and launch itself into orbit off any of said bodies save for Venus and Earth.
