Information

Note: The ship's main areas are detailed in each forum category!

The M.C.S. (Mobile City Ship) Aurora is a technical marvel - one built with a singular purpose: to create a separate place for psions to live, away from the rest of the world where they could harm others, whether accidentally or on purpose. It was certainly one of the better alternatives people came up with, even if life on an M.C.S. is hardly completely ideal. There are six M.C.S.’s currently in use.

A Mobile City Ship is so big, it’s its own self-contained town. People live out their lives much like people who live on an island - it was even created to have its own genetically-engineered flora (grass, trees, and other plants) to give the place that touch of life that really makes a ship feel livable.

Most larger coastal cities in the 2090’s have a dock large enough for an M.C.S. to dock, otherwise smaller ships must transport people and goods to the massive ships.

Docking and Disembarking
The Aurora doesn’t have to dock very often, but unless something is wrong it generally docks somewhere once every couple of weeks to rotate out its crew and make repairs. It generally takes on anyone with business on the ship - such as workers or students - during this time.

Getting off of the ship is a bigger ordeal for students. Since the primary goal of the ship is to keep the general world safe from psions without imprisoning or otherwise harming the psions, the Admiral was given the order to give each psion who exits the ship a shot that blocks psionic abilities for roughly Ten hours. Students are generally expected back well before the serum wears off.

Borealis Academy
One of the largest facilities on the surface deck of the Aurora is Borealis Academy - a school for psions and anyone else of school age that lives on the ship. Its education is relatively standard, though it has just about every extracurricular activity imaginable - something many of the students living on the Aurora appreciate.

The facilities are large enough to facilitate students of every age, though each class is relatively small compared to some of the larger land-based schools around the world

Students aren’t allowed to use their abilities in the hallways, and anyone caught breaking this rule is punished - often by being temporarily ‘relieved’ of their ability to use their powers.

The school uniforms are fairly stereotypical sailor uniforms (there are several variations for each gender). The school decided this based on the fact that the academy is based on a ship.

The school has a darker side. It’s hardly a secret; rather, it’s a bit of public knowledge among residents that the students are regularly tested in various ways, some of which are known to strain or at rare times even hurt the students. It’s all considered a necessary risk in an effort to understand the nature of psions better.

PSI/Psionics
Supernatural abilities that a rare few are born with are known as psionics, or simply PSI. Individuals may have several psionic abilities, one ability, or none, though they all stem from the same type or source. Those who exhibit the ability to use psionics are called Psions. It seems rather hard to tell who will and won’t be psion since most psions don’t yet have kids who are old enough to be psions themselves, though psions usually manifest their abilities around puberty. The amount of psionics is on the rise for reasons still unknown, and there are several prominent institutes dedicated to the research and development of such abilities, especially on the Mobile City Ships themselves. The acceptance of psions and their abilities can vary greatly from person to person, even in the most open-minded of places.

What makes a Psion extraordinary is the fact that something in the genetic makeup in their brains actually allows them to warp reality around them in a limited fashion (largely depending upon the nature of their ability). Sometimes this takes the form of something more indirect, such as harnessing the water molecules in the air to produce water. Other times, the effects are more direct - such as teleporting or conjuring. Regardless, while psions are limited in what they can control with their minds, they’re also able to do what no man or woman has been able to do before in modern history.

PSI Abilities
A Psion usually has only a single ‘main’ ability type. Someone who can teleport might be able to teleport themselves or other objects, but their core ability is that of teleportation. The same applies to abilities such as conjuring fire or controlling electronics.

A psion’s abilities are as varied as they are limited, though only a few psions in the world have ever been recorded with abilities similar to that of the Tokyo incident of 2060.

OOC note: A psion’s powers are abilities in more of a ‘comic book’ sense than a scientific one. They’re meant to be broad strokes in order to facilitate plot and fun, not exercises in scientific theories. After all, in the end that makes said characters both that much more ‘epic’ and that much less fun for others to interact with.

Technology
The near-future tech of the world resembles the tech of our time, though for the most part things such as books and pencil and paper are a rarity. Most things are electronic in some form, though they’re far superior to our own tech in just about every way, from battery life to security.

Cars are still around - most are still your typical electric wheeled cars, though a few 'hover' tech cars are around for the extremely rich (don't try to drive them over water though, it hasn't ended well for the people that tried.)

Cell phones are more powerful than ever, and their tablet counterparts have replaced computers completely with the invention of the 'virtual' keyboard and Augmented Reality goggles.

Military/Combat Tech
In addition to the everyday tech, some special and rare technology can be found, such as the gear used for combat or for other specialized uses. Cybertech is on the rise, though unless you’re a soldier (or ex soldier) in the military, you’ll probably have to get yours through less than legal means.

Guns haven't changed much, though body armor has improved to a lesser degree than most would think in this time. It's lighter weight and a bit more protective than it was in the early 21st century.
