#REDIRECT [[Ship's Computer]]
[[Ship’s Computer]]: The [[computer]] installed on a [[ship]] controls all activity within, and is especially used to enhance [[weapon]]s fire and defensive activity. {{Page cite|name= Starships|page=38|version=Classic Traveller}}

* It is an [[Good|object]] and a technological [[device]], a product of [[Information Technology]]. {{Unpublished cite|author= Maksim-Smelchak }}
+
* The simple hardiness of ship’s computers makes them extremely durable. {{Unpublished cite|author= Maksim-Smelchak }}
+
* Almost all are designed to use lower technology repair components in most functionalities. For this reason, ship’s computers tend to be much larger and more voluminous than strictly function-based [[microelectronics]]. {{Unpublished cite|author= Maksim-Smelchak }}
+
* Many call them robotic or [[ship brain]]s. More sophisticated models are called [[ship mind]]s.

== History & Background ([[Dossier]]) ==

''Ship’s Computers'' within [[Charted Space]] are intentionally built to work under a number of different operating systems, different [[technology level]]s of [[computer]]s, and to be extensively toughened for use under hard [[vacuum]] and heavy exposure to cosmic radiation if necessary. {{Unpublished cite|author= Maksim-Smelchak }}
