The Vagabond
Jun 18th, 2017 at 1:17am
 
  The Vagabond is fleet of starships bonded together to form one giant supermassive craft of unbelievable age and power.

The origin of the Vagabond is lost in the eons.  What few reports from starfarring races who survived encounters with this ship say that it is a museum of lost races, and lost technologies.

Many expeditions have been launched to liberate ships from this fleet, most came to horrible ends.

When the Vagabond detects a ship, it stalks it with the sensors of a thousand Starcraft. It pursues the new ship and incorporates it into its vast bulk. The crew it ignores, unless they resist or attack.

It is so large, and so old it has its own ecosystem maintained by the gasses of various life support systems, all mixed. Unique life forms have evolved, as the warp drives of the fleet craft provide heat and energy.


The Vagabond just may contain the last traces of many lost civilizations. The Moevian Empire has declared it an enemy of Hala, and is in constant watch for the mighty vessel.

And mighty it is. The computers of all the best minds in history have combined and adapted over countless millennia. It can not be defeated, only delayed. It roams in an unpredictable vector, unconquerable and un fathomable.

This congeries of captured ships contains space craft of nearly every known species.   When the AI of the Vagabond locks on to a ship, the vast network of computer banks, analyze and ascertain the best way to disable a ship in order to incorporate it.

Once disabled it either fires grappler lines or attractor beams to pull the ship to its hulls.   It then sends swarms of nanites to weld the newly captured ship to its own gigantic mass.  Once it is secured, it breaks down parts of the hull, sending it more nanites to study the new technologies and assimilate its computer systems.   

It pretty much leaves the biological crew alone.  They are free to flee  or stay and live, as long as they don't interfere with the Vagabond as a whole.  Many generations of aliens were born and died in the vast corridors of the Vagabond. 

In fact there was a war between two rival species over foodstuffs.  This war was waged in skirmishes one side taking a new ship, raiding it for supplies, then the other side retaliating.   This lasted centuries until both sides died out.   There may be a few stragglers hiding out, searching for food among the thousands of ships that form the Vagabond.
