Has anyone thought of using Alexa (or it's various competitors) which respond to voice commands and are capable of interacting with other devices, as part of a bridge build?
The notion has caught my fancy.
Alexa (or Computer), Ship status!
Computer, Raise Shields!
Computer, course 277, warp 2, engage!
Or...I notice that when I play Artemis with folks, we often only have 3 or four players. Often it's Comms that remains un-played (we just go shoot stuff). Maybe:
Computer, request Nukes from DS1!
Alexa, request N35 to assist!
You get the idea.
I think this is doable. More than doable, I think this would mimic some of the wonder of Star Trek (and other such media) with their ship's AI.
