Robots

The SK Chip protection:

Each and every robot in RNA has two brains:

- A main CPU that includes all of the programming, and which is used to do calculations, make decisions and all other standard activities.

- A safety key chip that is attached to the robot's brain, and which the robot has no access to by any means. This chip only contains the core programming and has no A.I. qualities.

When the robot makes a decision and sends the electric signal to the rest of his body to execute the necessary actions, that decision first runs through the chip. If that action is in conflict with the chip's programming, it will not allow the signal to go further. If the SK chip has any kind of malfunction, it immediately stops working, disabling all of the robot's functions. The chip cannot be bypassed, it is an essential component to connect the brain to the body, individual to each robot like a key. If a chip is forcefully or accidentally removed, the robot immediately self-destructs. The chip does not allow its own removal, i.e. the robots cannot physically execute the motion of removing SK chips.

The core programming is loaded into the individual robot's brain directly from the SK chip to make sure no external alterations were made.

Binary brains:

The robots think in binary, they must display that quality in their thinking and actions. E.g. numbers often displayed in binary system, often offering two solutions etc.

A.G.I.

Humans programmed the early robots to avoid producing artificial general intelligence, as the RNA has a purpose which has to be completed, thus they did not want the robots to become conscious or self-aware. Zhe's AGI is an accidental result of the uncertainty arising from his biochemical brain. He is the only one of his kind because he is a test subject, mass producing robots with a brand new brain mechanism could have been dangerous. 

Spaceships

Interstellar spaceships use space warping to travel. They create a space bubble by contracting space in front and expanding it behind, forcing the bubble to fall forward. This allows the ship to travel much faster than light without experiencing any G forces, as it is moving with spacetime and not through it.

While the engine produces exhaust, it is not what pushes the ship forward, that is just a byproduct of the system.

The space bubble is created by two particle accelerators using Ununpentium, producing vast amounts of energy concentrated in the front, and negative energy in the back.

 

There is no artificial gravity on the ships. While they can create a singularity type gravity pull in front of the ship using the enormous engines, they cannot evenly distribute weak gravity underneath. The robots have magnetic feet to stick to the ground, while alien habitats live in the gravity wheels, and use magnetic boots or float around in the rest of the ship.

 

Each species requires a different living environment (gravity, atmosphere, temperature, etc.), so there are separate living quarters for each species in the gravity wheels (one of which is faster to accommodate higher g-force necessities). The rest of the ship is set to an average temperature, and the crew has to wear appropriate suits and breathing gears when leaving their designated habitats.

Interstellar spaceship are not made to land on planets, they go from orbit to orbit and use shuttles to land. They also cannot execute quick manoeuvres such as turns. They use a gyroscopic turning method in the centre, and nitrogen propellants across the body.

Communication

Communication across the galaxy happens by using entangled particles.

The message is first converted into a binary code, then the relayer starts collapsing the superposition of the entangled particle at a constant speed (600 hz). When the spin of the collapsed particle matches the binary value (up = 1; down =0), the system skips a beat to indicate that the previous spin was the correct one.

Example:

Code: 101

Spins needed: U, D, U

Collapses:

D, D, U, skip, D, skip, D, U, Stop

Time Keeping

To be confirmed. RNA needs a central time measurements that they can all agree on.

This includes the meaning if "years" across different species.

Universal Translators

The translator is attached to the head near the communication centre of the brain. It works by studying the user's brain first (the user says a list of word and sentences), then when enough information is collected it can predict what the person will say and can translate in real time. At first it is quite basic, but the more it is used, the better it gets. It then translates the speech to "the universal language" (RNA's coded version of communication), and sends the message to nearby translators. Those then pick up the message, translate it back to the wearer's language, and relay it directly into the brain's hearing centre.

Here we gather general information about characters, backstories, rules, science, and the overall foundation of the entire story to keep the writing consistent. These can be precise descriptions, or just bullet points & ideas to weave into the story.

Not sure if a line of dialogue fits the character or if a story point is coherent with the established rules? Check to find out.
