Callisto, the ship's AI for The Inelegant Truth, is jealously protective of the male members of the crew, treating any women that speak to them with deep suspicion, let alone those who board her. This barely hidden hostility becomes an order of a magnitude worse for "girl" AIs that the Truth comes in contact with. This makes the crew something of social pariahs in some fendoms, and like B.A. on A-Team, the crew have to come up with lurid and increasingly ridiculous ways to work around this. This jealously does extend somewhat to First Officer Cynthia, but not to ragamuffin Toni, who's "too much of a cutie pie."

Known Quirks

  • The enemy of my enemy is my enemies' enemy: The three principal AIs that "live" on The Inelegant Truth - Callisto, Gay Deceiver, and Brother-Captain Galvius - all hate each other. If allowed, they will bicker to an extent that ship efficiency will drop 30% until they are hard-lock separated from each other's networks.
