To Contagion: Confirmed Alex wants facial hair and uh... I'm not sure how to explain top surgery. The science teams should have the anatomical data to reference for it; it's basically an attempt to change a woman's chest to be like a man's. Will require removal of some tissue, which would mean more income.
Assistant: How would you resolve contradictions in orders given by Creators? Would you have to follow orders even if they are causing problems for the Creators more than aiding their goals?
Anarchy, did you see the conversation we had with Contagion, before you became active? They seem to value you greatly. I think Contagion considers you, and us through you, this Project's best hope for surviving past the Creators' plans... though I suspect it will take a sweeping reorganization of the Project, and modification of every unit in it, for that to be possible.

Anything left to do...? Hmm. Is there water in the filter pitcher? From the toilet?
No. 1051006 ID: 90c451

((Let's not act on this for now, I mean yeah it seems like it would be cool to do but imagine the effect if Alex grew a beard overnight. Also would be a waste of resources. Rather hold off on this until we've dealt with everything else.))
This is not urgent or necessary at the moment and I recommend postponing any further exploration of this project until we've at least begun to successfully finish ghost protocol and raised our efficiency and cut costs.

Pet cat, go to sleep.
See if we can't convince the cat to cuddle with us.
For now we're pretty exhausted, it's late, we need the rest. We can deal with everything else in the morning.

Crossposting with https://getyeflask.net/quest/res/827.html for the time being. I'll probably be more attentive to posts there

Kicker, a herreras and a claw captain of the 557th squadron of the great Mountain's grand army, deadpanned. Lowtail, herreras and claw on-field medic, grinned at Kicker.
“A group photo.” She said, crossing her arms. “You know we'll have to burn it, right?”
“It'll stay here.” Lowtail poked his head. “This is the furthest we've ever been from the mountains, and it's not like we're doing anything else.”
As he said that Snapper, a feather, landed near them and picked up a bag. They were about to cross a very rickety bridge over a very deep creek, and nobody trusted the bridge to bear the weight of their equipment so Snapper was flying it across beforehand.
They'd been marching counterrootways for ten days and then ten more now, tailed by a tooth unit, under strict orders to avoid being sighted (Or, failing that, deal with anyone who saw them) and to signal the tooth of anyone who might see him. Kicker hugged herself a little tighter. “Fine. But we burn it.”
“And you have to be in it.” Added Lowtail.
Kicker grunted under her breath.
“What… Scraptooth.” She said, sliding a claw to the shotgun on her waist.
Scraptooth laid, bored, on the ground, oblivious to the… thing silently coming out of the sand behind him. “Captain.” He saluted. “What's with the look?”

Kicker crouched and gave it a small morsel. It didn't move to eat, but the pistol bug ran up to it and tore the meat into small bits it fed to the rifle slowly.

“She must've been something for you to do this.” Kicker said softly. “I have to go. I can't stay here to take care of you.”

The rifle seemed to nod, slowly. Or maybe it was just chewing what the pistol fed it. She couldn't tell.

"I know what it's like. You just need to give yourself time to get better."

it kicked sand at her again, much more weakly than before.

The pistol bug nuzzled the rifle before they departed, and that was that.

Ah having no internet sucks sometimes. Don't worry about it.
There's no way the farshooter has kept up with us. Pistol-bug must be homesick and worried for the rifle. Thing must be as old as the Sharpshooter, thinking about it now.

Spend a moment with them. Ask if it remembers the last time it left the hideout.

My name is Mary.

I own a dungeon.

Not by choice, mind you. I was forced into this when the previous owner placed a curse on me after I tried to audit him. Now I'm the ruler of this place until.... Well, for the foreseeable future.

But I'm trying to make the most of it while I'm here.

But seriously though, if you're going to be an actual combatant for the dungeon as a human you're going to need to practice fighting and internalize what you can do in a fight, including whatever spells you can cast.
No. 1051004 ID: 55d211

Yeah it’s probably a good idea to set up some practice fights for yourself to actually learn how to fight. Speaking of which, since you’re the dungeon lord does that mean you have a level? And if so what’s your level?

It's not like we're doing nothing. We're doing our part for people who appreciate it and help us in return, it's different from working for an uncaring system.
No. 1050957 ID: bbb04b

You probably have a question about how to conduct yourself in official battle, but you should preface it with some honesty.

"Okay, so, I have a good reason for doing so, which I'll explain if you'll hear me out, but... I'm thinking of entering the tournament."

"I understand your misgivings with wild pokémon training themselves up, but I think we both know that if I'm gonna figure out what happened to me and how it can be undone, I probably can't do it without venturing out into Hoenn at some point. (Not that being a pokemon for a bit hasn't been a blast! But my friends and family are gonna start getting distressed soon.) So, given all the dangers and unknowns that come with such a journey, it's not a matter of me wanting to become strong, but of needing to. I can pinkie-swear to you I won't let it go to my head, if you want."

And when she brings up the inevitable concern of you getting your chitinous ass handed to you:
"Yeah, I'm under no illusions that I stand a Snowrunt's chance in the Distortion Realm of actually taking the whole thing, assuming Team Friendlies themselves are participating. Which means I'm definitely gonna experience what it's like to be fainted for the first time; at least it'll be in a controlled environment, right? Point is, I know exactly what I'm getting myself into. It's the experience that matters, and I imagine the experience will be pretty good if I can win even one matchup."

Only after you've leveled with her on this (heh, puns), THEN you ask her for battling advice (with the caveat that you're aware she probably doesn't have nearly as much to give for solo battling as she would for team strategies).

Loyalties are always my issue. If you've got people that care about you and you care about back it would be kind of a bummer to leave them behind. Though in this situation it wouldn't be impossible to reconnect, just really awkward.
No. 1050967 ID: bf9b7c

As long as we could find a way to let them know we're okay and happy...
No. 1051003 ID: b01382

Awkward is manageable. That just mean family reunions will be extra fun.

I still beleive being poke is better than wage-slavery, but i might be biased since i worth +60hr a week. I mean our prospects are pretty damn good if we get to stay as a pokemon forever.
Medical insurance? Just pay a small fee and visit a poke-clinic and have a Nurse Joy check for injuries.
Food? Just go out inna forest and gather berries.
Money? Dig for gems and rare things, then sell them at a human shop.

Of course that isn't to say we shouldn't be prepared to return to the life of a human if our pokemon form is unfortunatrly temporary. If that comes to pass i think we should try collecting a pile of valuable evolution stones and other goodies to sell if we become human again. Because, you know, no job, so we'd need lots of pokedollars to stay afloat to either retire or find another job.

Two lone mercenaries, lost in an unknown galaxy far from home, slowly drifts towards a smaller mining colony on the edge of the sector, a long way from anything of note. They were part of colony fleet that would do the impossible, FTL jumping to completely different galaxy, but something went very wrong… and now they are stranded all on their own. Their ship is barely holding together, as the wounds they received fleeing from the last planet as outlaws takes their toll, forcing them to land on the planet before them, for better or for worse…

>That’s a nice cock.
... Both herself and her reactions are really cute. If you can get her into it and distracted, she might strip something without thinking. You rocking a robo dick? Being at least a little genuine might help.

Scorch, do you think you can safely tuck and roll a landing down to that glowing hologram? Looks to be a tool and having it is better than an enemy having it. If you can't, get some cover behind a pillar, and be ready to shoot down on someone, cause there is a shadow approaching below from the left.

If you're lucky, she'll be really curious on how you feel inside her and she'll strip herself in order to fuck you, which will allow you to win the bet! Or maybe the tournament will be over so quickly, she doesn't even get a chance to properly suck you off!

Then you just have to get really lucky and hope your sister doesn't somehow screw things up and cause Number 3 to lose!

>Right… let’s win this… um… thing… somehow…
Since you didn't read the manual, remember the lady said stripping and screwing are one point each. Not only does that means you have to close in even if you snipe a shot, you could "kill-steal" after a big fight.

Keeping an eye out for cameras too. For the sweet shots, they will be pointed at traps, or bonus point spots. The casuals could use them to puff up their pornstar resumes too. You see them, you could join them. I know you're not into them, but it would be professional to learn to fake it. They're also pros, they'll understand.

>why does it smell like spring in here?
Vine trap. There's gas around the pick up too. Ready your flamer. Spare a thought for the poor (Uredo?) employee the arena assigned to it.

Think you could learn to track people by smell? The only one you'd know is insect dork, but still...

Room beyond is almost as large, semicircular, with the just-opened door being in the center of the flat side. DANI recognizes it as the Inspector's Lounge. It's brightly lit and there are two other exits.
Of more immediate relevance, inside are eight creatures, each resembling a slightly different asymmetric mix of goat and human. Biggest one dives for a pile of junk where the vending machines used to be, digs through it, finds and brandishes something roughly the size and shape of a soup can, staring at you wild-eyed while making a big show of hooking a finger through the pull-pin in that mechanism on top. Two in the back continue having sex. Five others set down a card game and ready spears.
Gambling and overt sexual activity are considered higher-priority violations of the Employee And Visitor Code Of Conduct than brandishing unpowered melee weapons. Use of a fire extinguisher is not considered a violation at all, under the current conditions.

Well, at least we learned nothing bad happens if you disturb the boxes!

After a beat of awkwardness with the noise of sex in the background, a wide eyed and blushing Melaina calls out "We come in peace!" and if that doesn't do anything about the weapons pointed her way, she's going to move away from the door, letting someone better armed and armored take point against the angry-to-be-interrupted abhumans.

"Are you all right?" Melaina asks, concerned that corrupted memories might be migraine or headache inducing, or at the very least, distressing.


"There is no need to worry about anything like that." She was (at the very least trying) to be matter of fact enough that it hid that she didn't actually give an answer one way or the other.

>wearing a sludge-filled box as a hat
Ivori shows no change in expression, yet she is currently not carrying a box filled with sludge.
Ivori quietly tallies a Chuckle Point in her headspace.

After cold-staring the goat creatures for a few seconds, Ivori calmly and casually walks back into the previous room, only to throw her back to the wall once she's out of sight. She plans to turn invisible and quickly backstab the farthest goat-

But it appears the android will convince the 'interns' to stand down after all. Still, it appears they will encounter further organic units in the very near-future. Or possibly in thirty seconds if her party acts incompetently and angers the goat creatures. Ivori decides to spend her initiative creating a unit of poison and slathers it over her tanto.

Initially frowning in worry, Misha lets out a dry chuckle when Melaina doesn't appear to be badly hurt... or melting or anything.

Jumping slightly at the answer to her question being cut off with a shout, the wright groans and grumpily approaches the now-open doorway, peering around DANI to see and figure out what has caused the commotion. She raises an eyebrow at the goatpeople shenanigans, especially concerned at the item being brandished by the one in the scrap pile. She surreptitiously starts drawing her own weapon from behind DANI.

"What's the plan, Security?"

The last is directed towards the AI, who seems to have some command of the situation.

Go grab some pants, and see if there is maybe a spare shirt we can wear to cover our scar. The less people question it, the better.

>we just jogged
....okay, I think i lack a frame of referance, but normally thats a bad thing to do after a recent transplant. Several to be exact. Im gonna guess that either we're built different, or our friend is EXCEPTIONALLY skilled, bless her heart. Also check if there are any shoes our size? Did we even wear shoes? Do we need shoes? Different households have rules about wearing shoes indoors or not.

Fuck, i wanted to ask her if it was safe to eat, but considering she didn't leave us an "Idiot's List of Things not to do post Surgery" note, go find something light to eat for breakfast. Some juice or water, then maybe something soft like a banana or bread. No solids just yet incase that'll fuck up our stomach.

So first up is to determine how many books we need to return. If these are a lot of books then we might not be able to stop by Werner's place to pick up the medical supplies AND THEN carry all the books with us to return back to the library.
If its only a few books, we can probably do both. If its a lot of books then we should probably go to the library, then donate money to the church, then swing back home to grab the medical supplies before waiting for our appointment.

Return the bedsheet, get ye pants, and locate Amanda to ask where the textbooks and donation are at. It'd be embarrassing to have to come back after going to one of those places. If Amanda isn't even in the house anymore, try locating them yourself.

Whatever the case, we should tackle the medical supplies first because 1: It's closest, so if we need to come back we can do so quickly, and 2: In the case that don't find anything beyond something to clothe ourselves, that errand is the one that doesn't require us to bring anything.

Remember, the Void King didn't kill the Goddess, that was the Trickster. And the world broke because the Goddess was killed. The Void King only showed up after that and (mostly) killed the Titans and Grand Slimes. And apparently he considers trying to kill the Queen a mistake caused by some sort of misunderstanding, so it's entirely possible his demigod slaying was justified and reasonable given his understanding of the situation at the time.

Garrin shakes his head'I'm afraid that's not possible, I need you here Ahtas'

'you do?' The mare smiles with exitement.

Garrin gives a nod'Indeed the Princess has lost most of her guards, and needs replacement companionship'

Tirzaea's smile fades replaced with confusion '...w-what?'

'as you are of fighting age your family's oath to the crown requires you to serve in the role of guardian.' Garrin explains.

Realization finally reaches the woman her voice cracks into a childish whine 'But I haven't been trained for such things, you couldn't expect me to bear arms could you?! My father said-'

Yiddle interrupts with a scowl'Be quite child! you are beholden to the knight captain, you better do has he says or it's the dungeons for you. forget anything your foolish father told you.' the old kobold then hobbles off.

'Y-Yes master Yiddler...' Tirzaea Ahtas seems on the verge of tears. but otherwise seems obediently awaiting instruction.

The way I see it, there are a couple different possibilities with power. Me however? I've always prefered the chameleon approach, unseen except when I want to be, eyes able to see almost anywhere I need to, and a surprising amount of reach. I can move anywhere undetected, as needed, and I can plan and plot in the shadows. It may not be as active. But it works for me.

>Knock them off the touchscreen
It’s not really that windy up here, but it could still work!
“I have an idea. Let’s clothesline them off the cart.”
“We pull a rope across the top, sweep down and run them all over the edge. They won't see it coming.”
“...Sounds crazy enough to work. Alright, go and get ready to pull.”
Anet and I sneak around while Jaina creeps up to the corner of the screen. As we get to the other end, we notice a fifth Beformican looking over the side of the cart. They could be a problem if they notice us too soon...
Anet stands on my shoulders to lift the rope up and signal Jaina. She pulls it taut, and we’re off! The trick takes them completely by surprise, but as they’re falling one of the Beformicans manages to drag their arms down the touchscreen, pressing a bunch of buttons. The cart abruptly stops and reverses course, sending everyone flying!

One of the hose heads spins around from momentum, spraying the cart top with water. I land in a puddle next to Pent and one of Them. It's impossible to tell where anyone else landed between the ringing in my ears and the water in my eyes. Groggily, I try to scramble away from the confused, angry ant. Not only is the puddle slippery, but stepping free of the puddle is like pulling my feet out of mud. Pent’s quicker to recover and manages to shock the soaked Beformican before he gets up.
I finally have a chance to look around. It looks like three out of the five Beformicans were thrown clear, but Jaina is fighting off the last two on her own while holding onto the rope. I don’t see Anet anywhere - she must be on the other end of the rope still!

Look if there's a way to secure the rope nearby instead of simply pulling it. If there's one, you can take over pulling entirely, leaving her free to fight them off.

>Amp Rings
Sweet! Absolutely an item we should bring for the next match. This Syke approves.

>Press Diagram or not - Not
Since she still hasn't volunteered and we've made clear you were curious, let's leave Diagram's past alone until she's willing to share of her own initiative or the need becomes pressing to know more about her dad. You can tell her you're interested and you'll try to make time for her if she ever wants to talk about it, but it's up to her how 'tough' she wanna try to be around you. You're not here to make her final days in this place unpleasant. She's been a supportive friend and that matters, yeah?

If you wish, you can give her a reassuring pat on the shoulder or a light hug. That might not do much for you, but it probably will for her.

>Choose Nanoweaver or Amica - Nanoweaver, with caveat
What makes Diagram think Amica isn's a bad person? Good people can still justify doing bad things - though same goes for Nana, really - but it would be interesting to figure out a bit more about what motivates Amica here since we still know relatively little about her. People can put up a false front to get others to do what they want - Patz sure did, to lesser or greater extent - though, maybe, not as easily with someone like Diagram. Hm...

I'd be inclined to take these splinters to Nanoweaver just to force the dang veil of secrecy open from her end - or at least expose it for what it is: secrets kept deliberately from you, answers witheld for whatever reason, with no intent to explain until whatever all of this is... is over, or progressed further than it currently has.

That said, if Diagram can put into better words what she thinks makes Amica a not-bad person, perhaps it's worth considering givi

>That would explain the bullet, wouldn't it? it's meant for if you go berserk.
Not entirely. I can see the idea behind that, but if they wanted to get rid of me, there's a lot more effective ways to do it than a magic bullet, right? From what I remember of the note, Judi got it from someone else who told her to use it just in case, but... if it were me they were dealing with, then normal bullets would probably work if you used enough. We can regenerate but I don't think even I could survive having my head turned into sauce.

>If your berserk trigger goes off, then we can record it and have it cured!
...That's assuming I have one of those in the first place. Also, I have a feeling that 'killing someone else in a berserk rage' isn't something you can just easily come back from.

>Let's leave Diagram's past alone.
Yeah. I would've been fine asking her a little more, but...
Holding back now's probably a better choice.

"So you do have one. What's its name?"

She mutters something under her breath before speaking up again.
"W-well, it's... it's something embarrassing, so you'll have to forgive me for not telling you its name."

It's probably for the best she has her suppressor on. I don't need to feel second-hand first-hand embarrassment.

Stepping out from Diagram's room, I can feel the chilly air sweeping by. It's a good thing that Judicium's gotten me this new coat - I feel much warmer than I was before.

...There's just so much on my mind, though. What with Diagram, her dad, her Parasignia, the upcoming fight, whether or not I've formed a Psuedosignia with anyone... it's all up in the air. It's hard keeping track of everything when I still have to fight one of this facility's strongest soldiers tomorrow.

I reach into my pocket, pulling out the thing that's the root of my worries.

The vial of Splinters...
This thing had been hidden away for a reason. Hidden under a table in an old office.
Why was it removed at all? Did it belong to you in the first place?

I turn the vial over in my fingers, the thing catching the dim light.
This thing... this thing's gonna be the deciding factor for what's going to happen next, isn't it?

...But it won't determine how my upcoming fight will go. Only I can, with your help.
There's nothing more I can do right now. I've got a fight ahead of me and I need to ready up for that.

So you died, then were brought back to life via experimental science? And due to having been dead for a while, your memories were damaged? Or maybe... ask if they operated on your brain.

Do you remember Judy ever calling you by name?
No. 1050218 ID: 22eda9

I'm... hmm. It feels nice to see my hunches being right, but the other spirit's right, we should backpedal a bit.
Dad had seemingly no reaction whatsoever, which is... odd.

>Maybe we're genuinely confused?
With a situation as complex as Franklin's, it would be weirder if we weren't wrong or confused about something, what's important is trying to work through it.

So... in my opinion, I'm not sure I think Franklin's Dad was lying in this situation, because I'd rather not believe that he's so heartless as to forget his own daughter's name.
At the same time, I don't want to disregard Franklin's memories.

Normally, this would present a pretty serious contradiction, and I believe that contradiction is the key, rather than a "It's one or the other" situation.

Seeing as I've had a few good hunches, I'd like to the idea out there that maybe "Franklin is actually from another world" - or so to speak that "Franklin has memories from two different worlds."
This is obviously a really out there idea, but it doesn't feel that unconvincing. I'm not sure how that would really work though...
Not sure Lillian or Lemmy would buy it though.

(I think it's more likely that Franklin has brain parts from a different kid. Just like he's clearly got other foreign parts on his body. I don't want to give Franklin an obvious way to walk back his newfound realization that his Dad is a liar, though. He's definitely lying about Franklin's mother. Mostly because the room his mother is supposed to be inside... is a closet.)
No. 1050319 ID: 22eda9

(Right, I was trying to clarify, but maybe it wasn't clear enough.)

Even if he's not lying about Judy, who definitely exists/existed somewhere - just maybe not this world ((sequel foreshadowing?)) he's for sure still lying about something.
It's hard to find someone in this Cattenom who isn't lying or hiding some kind of secret, so surely your Dad is no exception, Franklin.
...Yes, even you, even Enid. Everyone has their reasons.

Also, idle thought, but maybe the memory Dad is a different Dad...
No. 1050747 ID: 22eda9

This is kind of random, but does the word Perpetuity hold any meaning to you, Franklin?
It's the title of a story still being told.

It might be a bit of an archaic word, but in essence the dictionary meaning of the word is along the lines of "The state of remaining the same."
I'm curious what the others in Cattenom think of it, and it might be a key to understanding the mysteries of the town.

I disagree with the prior suggestors in saying that he wouldn't. He's already on a road to at least *attempting* to socialize and he misses his brother, maybe he wouldn't under normal circumstances, but I think this kind of thing would be calming to him in the moment. Also, having someone higher up means they can also spot for you in case there's anything weird coming up that you all (Being short kids) could miss.

I wanted to say A3, but Instead I'll go with A2, piggyback and the middle, the extra height from Enid means you'll be hard to see anyway, which means having someone up high in a hard to see place can catch something you all otherwise might miss.

"Rise and shine, miss Haarlock! Or was it 'shine and... rise'? Not that I... wish to imply you have been sleeping on... the job. No one is more deserving of a rest..."

Clang of docking clamps wakes you with a jolt, tumbling out of bed.

>Waiting it out like a Chartist seemed safer than trusting the helm of a Tempest-class strike frigate to an illiterate nine-year-old.
Further-Lord can't help himself. He lets loose a bellowing chortle.
"*Ahem* S-sorry, inside joke about expiration date of bio-organic warhound liver spouts. Don't ask-tell.
Wait, you said illiterate? T-that's no-no joke! The girl must travel-sight a marvel of Inter-Chaotic ship technology, and she doesn't even know how to tell the stop / self-destruct buttons apart, let alone a space-flight manual?! Who do I need to report for kill-kill- I mean execution?"

Further-Lord realizes the whole room is now staring at him.

"Yes-yes, all of you praise the All-Saviour-All-Destroyer, He who shall obliterate all Chaos in all things for all the Imperium (once we man-things get our God-Emperor-be-Damned act together). Apologies for the verbal tics, can't stop them, install-grafted sacred biotechnology to save-preserve it from decay out of broken tube. Manual said it was tested on rats. Manual never said it harvested brains of rats and grafted them to user.
...A demonstration is in order. Yes-yes."

Further-Lord finds the nearest piece of technology or aching crewmember and 'repairs' them.

Everyone in the meeting room whips out a pistol and aims at the babbling rat-monster, who promptly vanishes into thin air.

>Pozzo Ekasdottir equips archaeotech laspistol (unloaded)

Acting Captain Flinders taps a button on the table, engaging an in-ship vox link.
"Gellar field status?"
"All green, sir. Nothing to report." The assembled senior officers relax, slightly.
"Acknowledged. Over and out." Taps again, disconnecting. "Goddamn hallucinations."

Any exorcist worth her salt could tell you that "neither within the law nor outside it" and "entire star system" do not belong in the same sentence.

Quaddis is essentially a planet-sized vacation getaway for the upper crust of the Calixis Sector's nobility, kept in perpetual extraterritorial limbo by a legal loophole. As heir to the Haarlock line, May is the closest thing it has to a planetary governor. There were no fixed orbital facilities or other industrial infrastructure to speak of, even before some more recent catastrophe. Interplanetary-range vox chatter is mostly a mix of eerie silence and variations on the Voidfarer's Prayer for Aid.

Initial skim by the astropathic choir estimates only a few hundred thousand people left alive across the entire system. When the Sigilite's Word last passed through here, just a few months ago, that was roughly four million, expected to swell to over five million as offworld visitors arrived to view the Grand Conjunction and attend the concomitant Festival of Tattered Fate. That event was last week - around the same time as the incident at Ice Station Mara, and far too recently for conventional transport to have departed via any safe jump point unless they broke orbit before the festival started.

Your party has effectively been reunited. Novator Benhamin "Old Ben" Nostromo, alpha-level psyker Lottie "The Burning Princess," Anguish, and Magos Biologis Sarcos "Bubbles" Vathek, aren't in the same room with Acting Captain Flinders, the rest of the navy officers, Ekasdottir, Further-Lord, and May (who hasn't been formally recognized as being in charge of much of anything yet), but from their respective duty stations they can all speak to each other easily through the in-ship vox, and everyone else seems to be assuming Maioigo Haarlock knows more than them about what the hell is going on.

Let's start by asserting control, rounding up surviors- locals can likely tell us the rough shape of the thing, then we can get detailed examinations later. Standard quarantines protocols, let's make sure we're not losing anyone from our crew to whatever happened here.

First distinction in ship types is warp capability. Non-warp-capable ships include orbital habitats, semi-static planetary defenses, and everything from tiny passenger shuttles (such as the ever-popular aquila lander) to multi-million-ton in-system vessels which could in principle be fitted with a warp drive but simply haven't been.

Among warp-capable ships, the major distinction is size.
Smaller category is escorts, subdivided into transports, raiders, and frigates.
Largest common category is capital ships: heavy transports, light cruisers, cruisers, battlecruisers (also sometimes known as heavy cruisers), and grand cruisers.
Finally, battleships. They're equivalent to at least two cruisers each, ranging on up into huge, absurd superweapons. Rarely seen outside major fleet engagements.

Raiders are fast but fragile. Frigates are more well-rounded. Usually takes five or six of either to be a fair fight against a cruiser, and you could expect to lose at least one in the process, but they're not really meant for fleet battles - any given ship of the line can only be in one place at a time (not counting arrive-before-you-left warp shenanigans), so if you've got five escorts and your enemy has one cruiser, ideal strategy is to spread out. One encounters the enemy capital ship and retreats, while the other four get to play "I brought a space warship to this meeting and you didn't."

Not quite up to that level yet, though. So, what do you want for your family's new flagship? Your father, and several generations of Haarlocks before him, operated out of a frigate known as the Spear of Destiny. It's not here, but there are about a dozen escort-sized vessels to choose from, could probably find something similar.

Could even combine the best of two or more of them, thanks to the Viat Lux, a Goliath-class heavy transport outfitted as a mobile shipyard
