‘A ship is a female after all!’ The man, now known as Abyssal thought to herself.
This is the story of a man who woke up one day and realised that he became a ship. A broken ship that's stranded in space with a skeleton as a captain, but nevertheless a ship!
Now, S.A.S. Abyssal (Self Aware Ship Abyssal) roamed space freely, wanting to find her purpose in this endless void. Along the way, she upgraded herself, found other Living Cores such as herself, got herself a maid, got into a dogfight, went space mining, upgraded herself further, steered through a minefield, encountered a supernova and even found genetically engineered catgirls!
Also, it turned out that there was some sort of crazed bounty hunter out for her blood! But wait there was more! She also somehow got herself involved in an intergalactic space war!
‘Wait wait wait! What the hell is this?! What am I supposed to do now!?’
Disclaimer: This is a casual release so expect the quality to be slightly less and chapter-length to be shorter than my other series. I will try to release 2 chapters a week for this story(Wed and Sun), but no promises as I am concentrating fully on my other stories.
I do not have a degree in literature nor a PHD in space-related stuff, so do forgive me if I make a few mistakes here and there!

Will also be uploading this to Royal Road and Webnovel.
There was honestly potential here, you don't see too many AI main characters. However the main character here is so overwhelmingly moronic she has only survived via plot armor.
Nearly every fight she has gotten into could be solved by using her radio (she gets one very early on but uses it maybe twice by chapter 49). In one chapter it almost looks like the author went back and added the radio to the list of broken systems at a later time, to retroactively try to explain why she didn't use it. That falls apart in the very next chapter where she realizes it's broken for the first time.
Beyond that it's full of the "character plays a lot of video games that the author has never touched" trope that really shouldn't be a trope.
Hey. This. Story. Is. Freakin. Good!!!
Especially. Kuon., MC. And. Kapitan
Cant. Wait. For. Intresting. Things. In. Future. Updates!!
It's generally pretty good. The characters are fun, even if they can fall flat every so often, and the story is easy to follow and engaging. The biggest issue for me is how one-note the characters can be. Kuon, for instance, has her maid face on... pretty much all the time, to the extent that I can't recall a single time she's broken character. That might be OK in a vacuum (heh), but when paired with Abyssal who's always an airhead (who, might I add, never goes back and revisits the growing list of things to look into "later"...), Meica who's (almost) always silly and carefree, and Abby who manages to be less expressive than the Great Sage... it can start to feel like they're defined by the one trait they've been given.
Pretty good overall. Just what you expect from a web novel. Plagued with various common problems tho.
The biggest problem is the characters being moronic (just like every other story except a select very few). Like half of the 'struggles' (if you can call them that) can be avoided if any of the character uses more than 5 brain cells. What's the purpose of the setting of being a super intelligent supercomputer when the MC is as moronic as every other WN protagonist? The MC is also a massive doormat btw
Second, the writer has little to no talent for mysteries, and yet tries to revolve the story around some. Its clear that the writer intended to keep leaking info about the mysteries of the story little by little, but completely fails to realize that he/she gave the readers way too much info that the readers can easily put together the mysteries way too early on in the story. The mysteries also feel too forced and with not sufficient backstory as well.
If you can suspend your disbelief while reading this story, its decently readable and enjoyable. But you'll definitely notice its numerous faults from time to time
it look like startrek 2009. In a sense that it is starwar try to disguise itself as startrek.
things are catoony and fun but consistence to its own rules.
characters are anime-like but act competent enough to be adult.
mysteries are top notch. World building is organic and not feel like stage.
It's a pretty good story: it's well written, the characters are decent (if a little flat sometimes), and the plot is largely consistent with itself.
The only thing I can't say I liked all that much is how little agency the main characters have. They spend a majority of the story running, hiding, or being held prisoner by beings so far above them that they might as well be gods in comparison. It got a little hard to read after a while because of this.
man I wish they had more, I mean the MC is almost ALMOST living my dream life! And its top quality! You shall read it if is the last thing we do! Btw I love the MC, I wish I was an A.I. : (But of course without having such a vulnerable weak spot such as a core!
It’s a good story over all.
Perfect story composition for something that is controversial with components to do with calculation and objects/machines in space.
Nice character creation and I like the fact that the ‘system’ isn’t actually a system but a list of things that have to do with the ship every so often. As well as the fact that Abby as her sort of ‘guide’ and system dialogue is seen as a sort of second personality, which makes it all the more funny.
The thing I would like to see changed is that the characters have pretty one sided personalities and while the MC is pretty good at dealing with situations under pressure. We haven’t gotten into normal circumstances for long periods of time. Not has her actual common sense of do and don’t changed much.
Don't know about anyone else but I absolutely LOOOVE!!! Ship girl stories and this one is only made better by being a gender bender so thanks for letting us read this amazing story and please keep up the good work I would hate to see it dropped Abyssal can be a bit scatterbrained but she definitely cares about those around her and so far doesn't think humans suck
