A shot of the 3d set up.
Here is a little discussion about the ship, it’s role, and it’s name and such from the other thread:
"I’ve been looking at the purpose of this ship and at the different name types and while considering the genre of the movies. . .
This is a little thought which I think I’m going to base my model off of: In the movies, you hear about ships that use EMP as their last line of defense against the machines. Well, what happens after they EMP the area, they can’t move right? Who’s to say that more bots wouldn’t be sent to the last location that the ‘EMPed’ bots last transmitted from? With this in mind, in cases of emergency, there has to be a way of getting the ships back up and running or at least pulled back home. So, considering that, I thought about the possibility that my ship has 3 teathers attached to it. Two, in the rear tips of the ship latch on to the other ship and the one ‘between the legs’ to supply temporary power to get the hover nodes back online for hovering. This way the ship could be guided home. So, this ship could be the savior to some. It would serve the same roles as all other ships, but is outfitted for those occasions then they are needed."
William B. Hand:
“EMP stands for “ElectroMagnetic Pulse”. The pulse only affects systems which are active, so they shut off all power just prior to sending this pulse. Once the pulse is sent, and the threatening electrically powered systems are disabled, then they can simply fire everything up again and boogie on outta there.”
"Hahah, well, there is always a chance they run out of gas, right? wink
Yeah, I’m up to speed with the understanding of EMP. I thought it created an energy vacuum to a degree. Pulling all energy from the area, not just the active sources of energy. But ok, here’s the next thought, what if another ship EMPs too close to another… well that active ship is now not so active, much like in Reloaded. The Raguel could be dispatched, or informed of the situation and called in as backup. Like I was saying earlier, it’s sole purpose wouldn’t be to provide backup or towing, it would operate just like any other ship, and since it seems like most of the captains in the Matrix are pretty good with surviving and avoiding the bots, that the task of rescuing another ship would be few and far between.
Thanks for the info on EMP though :)"
“an idea, how the ship could help others: mid-flight re-fueling. How about that?”
"Interesting thought. I could see that as a major advantage in this type of world they live in. Though, I still would like this ship to have functionablity as far as broadcasting into the matrix and such. Not just some scrubs for a crew flying around a refueling ship. I can see possibly other ships coming to it to refuel, rather than it going to others that way, it would still be able to full-fill it’s mission and help others at the same time. Thanks for the input.
I’m still strugglin’ with the name. Capernicus?.. … If anyone has a better name in mind, don’t be shy I’m going to continue to search."
"I always liked the name “Mephisto”. I don’t know the whole story exactly, but suposedly it’s about a man (Mephisto) who sells his soul to the devil in return for some stuff…
I don’t know exactly how you could incorperate that if you wanted, but if you do, and you don’t only take the name, how about they’ve used salvaged machine parts to improve their ship?"

“I still like the CAPERNAUM.”
“capernicus sounds cool…”
