A Model/5 Computer is a sophisticated electronic computer.

Description (Specifications)

A common model of shipboard computer. It runs complex programs that control shipboard functions such as interstellar jumps and in-system astrogation.

  • A Model/5 computer using a Navigation Program is capable of initiating a Jump-5.
  • It runs multiple background applications including anti virus software, entertainment programs, and routine communications. It maintains passive security programs and monitors life support systems.

Operators are able to interact with the computer via Control Consoles.

Standard Variants

A number of different versions of the Model/5 are available:

Model/5

The base model of the -/5 series.

No. Category Remarks
1. Designation: Model/5
2. Cost: MCr45
3. Size: 5 Tons
4. Capacity: 12 CPU / 25 Storage
5. Tonnage Range: 50,000-99,999 Tons
6. TL: TL-11
7. Power: 3 EP

Model/5fib

A Model/5fib is a Fiber Optic Computer, a hardened and shielded version that has a fiber optic back-up system to resist radiation damage.

No. Category Remarks
1. Designation: Model/5fib
(Model E)
2. Cost: MCr68
3. Size: 10 Tons
4. Capacity: 12 CPU / 25 Storage
5. Tonnage Range: 50,000-99,999 Tons
6. TL: TL-11
7. Power: 3 EP

History & Background (Dossier)

A shipboard computer is routinely linked to Anti-hijack Programs.

Computers of this type may also be found running starports, planetary infrastructure elements, military and COACC facilities, and industrial sites such as automated factories.

Computer Control Standards

Computer Controls: In almost all cases where the ship's computer can control a given ship function (gravity, doors, sensors etc.), orders fed in at the central bridge computer take precedence over those fed in at local controls. Only if the computer is inoperative will a computer override be ineffective.[1] Some ships have been known to be built with a different system set-up, but this arrangement is commonplace on most vessels within Charted Space.
