Info

The Von Neumann is a heavy completely automated Mobile Fabircation Platform designed to support settlement efforts of newly settled systems and construct orbital and interplanetary infrastructure. As such the massive spacecraft is equipped with a large raw materials refinery and storage, as well as extensive Fabricator systems to produce everything from paper napkins to a complete copy of itself.

To supply the Von Neumann with raw materials, it perates several Urist Asteroid Mining Craft under control of specialized ALIs, but under remove observation to prevent accidents.

The production capacity of the Von Neumann is capable to replicating itself within nine month, making use of a large covered, unpressurizes, extendible fabricator bay in the nose of the craft, which is capable of taking spacecraft up to two km in length.
