Peggy is Ms Piggy’s AI master control program, and she monitors and adjusts all those complex systems the ship has, from life support to toilets - both pretty important for
keeping the crew happy! Ms Piggy is of course far from standard now, and juggling all those quirky add-ons and jury-rigged custom bits is a handful, even for a multi-core
7.2 Terawatt system like Peggy.
Peggy is capable of intelligent conversation, and her dry humour is sometimes spot on... she can manifest herself inside the ship as a hologram, usually taking the form of a 40’s pin-up. That visual look comes from the ship's nose-art, Pin-Up riding on piggybank spitting Galactic Credits from it's... eh, rear-end. Yes, and don't ask... Peggy can take other forms too, and she can also appear really lifelike instead of “hologrammyish” like she usually likes to show herself.
Peggy can, and does, act as a fifth crew member. She helps Karyn with tactical systems, shields and engine management during a battle for example. She can also fly the ship all by herself, thanks to Karyn's secret tweaks and programming... She is self-aware, far from Elektra, but enough that she is worried about "dying" although she doesn't quite grasp the concept of being dead. Our status? My system diagnostics shows 24.8% red, 32% yellow, rest are green. Luckily none of those reds are critical components, so we are GO for take-off...
Bob... he’s... Bob. Nobody knows what he or it really is, Bob came together with the ship when Sol bought it. Bob and Peggy have some sort of connection, but Peggy
doesn’t want to talk about it, and nobody is really that interested to dig any deeper. Sol named him "Bob", because why not? It's close to bot, and certainly better
than referring him all the time as the “floating bot that does nothing except beeps”.
