If anyone can help me think of a name and backstory, that would be awesome.
I was thinking that maybe the 2 ships were heavily damaged, and the engi on board combined the 2 ships (like the 2 ships you find trying to 'achieve a union').
That ship is a cool idea and I like the backstory.
It seems both the Lanius and Engi have an ability to reshape metal, though the Engi are a little more limited in that respect. It should come with Engi and Lanius crew that have formed an alliance out of necessity, despite the Engi's piece love joy attitude and the Lanius's all your scrap are belong to us! Kill kill murder attitude.
Perhaps the Lanius can be reasoned with after all... Another interesting thought is would Engi Med-Bot Dispersal and the Respirators augment be enough to keep a crew alive without oxygen??? If not you could adjust the values of those augments, I think that would be really cool.
Unfortunately a lot of good names like "Derelict" have already been taken... You could call it the Endurance, Survivor. POLYMORPH (Goes with the Engi theme
), Transmuter, Outlast... Something like that.
I hope to see the finished ship uploaded sometime soon.
