although reminiscent of humans are not. The sport in its early stages
went through seasons of purely functional robotic pilots but it was
found that audiences couldn't relate to this setup, the governing bodies
of the sport made a descicion to insert synthetic humans as navigators

piloting software to tune, instead this is now all installed into the
navigators ( the link between craft and engineers ).
Rules also stipulate that each navigator must have
dual 'Black Boxes' installed, aiding in investigation of several

All work in progress....
