This keeps looking better. Now I don't plan on running this whole AP as written but using everything that comes up to support it to make a kind of space opera using Dragon Star as the main inspiration. I get the feeling this piece is going to be crucial to what I'm planning.

Compassion: Gives a bonus to Will saves, Diplomacy, and Sense Motive. It also gives the AI an attack bonus against things that have hurt individuals the AI has formed an emotional bond with.
Ingenuity: Gives a bonus to Disable Device, the Tech-crafting feats, and a 1/day-per-target repair-robot touch-action.
Thanks! These sound quite interesting.
I have it now and have read it cover to cover and I am already wanting more. This whole AP has been a breath of fresh air from Pathfinder and I'm beginning to feel the pain knowing after this it will be an eternity until we go back to Numeria if ever. I am collecting everything I can in support of it to make an outer space campaign in Pathfinder. I supported the Clockwork Gnome KS about outer space and I hope that despite everything else it still manages to come out. Thanks to everyone at Paizo that worked on this, you have gotten me more entertained than I have been since the company made APs.
I'm currently running this adventure path and we just finished this module. One of my players wants to salvage the tank that held The-Stars-Whisper (the shipmind in the decomposing dropship) as part of some elaborate plan. As part of the rotting ship, I decided that it's in just as bad a shape as the rest of the vessel, and now questions are coming up as to what spells might be used to restore it. Since the module provides very little information on Dominion biotechnology, I'm not sure how to answer him. I assume that since it was never truly a creature, that raise dead or resurrection won't bring it back to life, but what about spells that stop decomposition or fix objects? Will gentle repose arrest the decomposition? Or, is it, despite it's organic nature, still just an object, and therefore subject to make whole? A combination of both? What keeps Dominion biotech "alive" in the first place? If repaired, will hooking it up to a power source keep it from decaying? I can, of course, just make these answers up, but I'm hoping, perhaps, some of you fine folks might have some insight so that my ruling might be more well informed.
