Helping Hunt in his quest to restore the Commonwealth is his ship the Andromeda Ascendant. Andromeda is an AI (Artificial Intelligence) and is sentient. She is a warship, a High Guard Ship of the Line. There are several versions of Andromeda available to communicate with her crew. There is a screen version, a hologram, and a humanoid form. Each avatar appears to have its own personality.
From the official site:
In addition to his new crew, Dylan's only tie with the past - and most formidable ally is his ship, the XMC-10-284, better known as the Andromeda Ascendant. The Andromeda is a sentient being in her own right, a sophisticated Artificial Intelligence with a host of computers and processors which contain her personality.
The Andromeda Ascendant interacts with her crew through voice, holograms and video images of herself as well as an avatar, built by Harper, in the form of a very beautiful young woman. In this form, affectionately called "Rommie" by the rest of the crew, Andromeda can now experience all the sensations of a living being, even while enjoying her existence as the toughest starship in the galaxy.
Totally loyal to Dylan and protective of her crew, Rommie is very committed to the restoration of the Commonwealth -- with all the powerful means at her disposal.
