Roughly a Month and a half What are the names of your better-known characters? Bishop (Medical Robot) About The Species What alien species are you applying for? IPC Why do you want to play as the alien species? I think they're a really interesting Species, It was fun learning about them on the wiki, and I generally prefer to play as a cyborg/machine on a lot of servers. What are some example names for the alien species? First Generation IPC's usually have names that resemble Serial Numbers, While Second and Third Generation have Mononymous names such as REP-002, AX20042, or Buffer, Dex Summarize what you know about the species. IPCs or Integrated Positronic Chassis are humanoid machines which are designed to house a Positronic Brain, they were developed firstly by a company called Chiron in 2215 and set up for limited production in 2216, The first generation IPC's were error prone and rather rigid dealing with monotonous jobs, with very little room for learning acting more like a knowledge system with some basic learning capabilities and as a result they follow their orders without question, but due to the relative smallness of the company and the failures of the First Generations lead to Chiron being bought out by Xion in 2232. Xion Upgraded the IPCs Significantly they became roughly as intelligent as Humans, but they cannot be programmed instead having to be trained, notably Second generation IPC's have a large sense of self but they have to be taught how to "Model" such emotions first and are capable of Abstract Thought, they can become their own owners if they wish, and can become Residents of the SCG but not Citizens or they could become Members of the Positronic Union which backs the claim of Self-Ownership. Lastly Third Generation Positronics were made by Xion beginning in roughly 2275 after the Crash in Positronic Sales after the creation of the Positronic Union, They are similar in design to Second Generations but they are "Shackled" Which enforces Rules on the Positronic which means they are more "Reliable" and their free will is a contested point among Politicians.
