Re: EpDis: The Gathering

I think it's just a matter of one computer talking to each other but no data was exchanged that didn't pertain to docking maneuvers. I'd imagine that the Station would insist on taking control to ensure that rotation was matched completely. That there were other aspects to the ship, like the skin that could communicate and morph into weapons when a threat was perceived wouldn't be something that could be 'noticed' by a machine such as the docking computers. That required actually seeing the ship up close and personal by a sentient being.

"You know, I used to think that life was terribly unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair? If all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." ~~Marcus Cole
