it's me again :)
With the help of the fine people of this place I have been able to find solution for a number of problems and come up with compelling technologies.
One question keep bugging me, however:
How do I ensure, that people / people's skill are still the most relevant in space based combat (short ranges) ?
One possibility, already posted, is to ramp up countermeasures (to make complex AI hackable). My own take was to make one of the planned races basically enforcing a no-AI-policy (this race would be technologically superior)
I am somewhat uncomfortable to go the usual path here, like A.I banished because of the dangers of sentinent A.I. and so on...
So what are your ideas to prevent the A.Is from taking over (the action and responsibility)?
It doenst have to be ultra-hard-scifi, just plausible :) Thanks a bunch!
UPDATE: I even don't know what to say right now. What a fountain of inspiration right there :) Ill take time to skim trough all of this, thanks again!
