Amadeus (Artificial Intelligence Assistant)
The Artificial Intelligence for Caution and Comfort is a program available through the ship's mainframe. It manifests work rooms, study coves, kitchen areas, lookout spots and break rooms, all using the progressive blueprint nano-form functions. It can translate almost any alien language, some translations are more helpful than others... Amadeus tries to provide meaningful metaphors for Olimax to be able to respond to alien communications appropriately. During initial setup of the AI, there’s an intensive interviewing process. The AI’s personality and vocal timber is formed around the answers provided, creating a psychological profile, then it is custom-tailored to best serve the pilot’s rate of success.
The Amadeus is equipped to mold the available smart "nanites" in the ADA, which is pretty much anywhere, except for the work area of the "Mainframe Squid", he likes to keep his work place neat.For example, "Murry the Cat" is a manifestation provided by Amadeus to help Olimax feel at ease, especially when going through the careful finalizing process of pinning points on a map.
About his Name: From the deep archives, a reference to one particular composer arises after cross-checking the psychological profile with creative success, and so the AI chose its own name to be “Amadeus”. Olimax was delighted by the AI at first, especially after experiencing the musical reference, but over the years he has grown increasingly antagonistic with Amadeus. Since the A.I.’s function is to err on the side of caution, Olimax pushes its limits by making decisions outside of the suggested protocol, sometimes just to get more information and a rise out of Amadeus. But deep down he knows the AI was designed this way to serve his best interest. But what the program doesn’t provide is an authentic friendship.
