"This fully sentient hologram is controlled by an advanced AI, housed inside a biological data-substrate."
AI Avatars are a new race added in the Captain's Edition, derived from the unused "ghost" race in vanilla FTL.
AI Avatars are advanced robots programmed to think for themselves and learn individually, at a rate comparable to other sentient beings. They were created by combining Engi and Zoltan technology but choose to take a human form. They initially served their masters in great numbers, but a significant flaw in their programming eventually surfaced. This led to a great AI Rebellion and now many of these rogue robots can be found causing chaos throughout the galaxy. Some Zoltan and Engi ships can still be found using AI Avatars as crew, but not nearly as often as before.
Special Abilities Edit
AI Avatars cost 30 scrap to hire from Stores.
