The Artificial Intelligence of the Andromeda Ascendant is an extremely powerful artificial intelligence that controls, repairs and regulates the ship through the ships systems, nano bots and dozens of androids which serve both a security and maintenance function. It manifests itself as a hologram and an on-screen avatar image. The Artificial Intelligence is granted the same rights as a living person by the Systems Commonwealth and most civilized planets. The Artificial Intelligence prefers to be referred to in the feminine, and the form of the Artificial Intelligence that is encountered the most is the mobile android housing that Seamus Harper built. The android is affectionately known as Rommie by the crew. The Artificial Intelligence has been seen from time to time having an argument with her other selves (On-screen versus Hologram) (On-screen and Hologram versus Rommie). Usually with the different aspects representing different conflicting view points such as the screen image advocating the welfare of the ship, the hologram advocating the welfare of the crew in general and the android the emotions and well being of the crew as individuals or of the AI itself.
She was installed in the Andromeda Ascendant Glorious Heritage Class vessel a year after her keel was laid in CY 9768. She was activated soon after so she could adapt to her new environment and assist the crew in construction. Andromeda Ascendant's complete official designation is Registry Designation: Shining Path to Truth and Knowledge Artificial Intelligence model GRA 112, serial number XMC-10-284 ("A Heart for Falsehood Framed"). Rommie says she picked "this face" after considering 170,894 options. ("The Sum of Its Parts")
- Rommie is similiar to the design of Cortana.
- Rommie and Harper's relationship to some extent draws on the Greek mythological model of Galatea and her creator, Pygmalion, although obviously there are numerous differences also.
