ASI (Pronounced A' see) is the Autonomous Sentient Intelligence aboard the Tembouchawi.
ASI is a highly experimental, state of the art and possibly completely unique electronic mind that regulates ship’s systems and also has the capability to interact with the crew.
Its purpose is to serve as an advanced computer system, while also having the capability to aid the Tembouchawi’s crew during missions of various sorts, all of which support Thayeson Enterprises’ bottom line.
When summoned for interaction from inside the ship, ASI appears as a pinpoint of bright white light, from which comes a cool mechanical voice. All shipboard computers, and some computers off ship but in appropriate proximity, can be used to interface with it.
