I am looking for a series of short stories that have large spaceships with A.I. that travel over large distances.

One story in the series (that is different from the others) has to do with an exoplanet that is populated with people, has a geothermal energy source, and is taken care of by an A.I. One day the A.I. makes a man (who is bored) fall in love with a girl. The man volunteers to fight in a "war" in order to impress the girl.

  • Can you give some details about where and when you read them? – James Jenkins Mar 28 '14 at 10:05

I finally found the short story: "Rite of Passage" by Roger Williams. I first read it many years ago on Kuro5hin. If you are curious, you can find his work at http://localroger.com/

  • Vie the "contact us" form? I'm sure people there would be able to help. If not - it's no big deal, just use the account you have access to. – Gallifreyan May 19 '17 at 11:26

Try the Brainships Series by Anne McCaffery. I can't remember the exact number of books but I believe the first is THE SHIP WHO SANG. The Human Capt.was the Braun the ship the Brain. somewhere in the series one off the Brainships require and takes over the operation of a planet... I hope this helps!
