Space T-suit by DPRagan Space T-suit by DPRagan
Just a girl staring out an open airlock door.

This started out as random doodle that became something more.

I doubt a real T-suit would be that form fitting across the butt...call it artistic license. ;p The suit is not designed for long term vacuum usage (More like quick transfer from vehicle to vehicle) hence the reason it uses a re-breather attached to the back of the helmet rather then a bulkier pack.

I found the mid-section a bit off-putting, but not enough to ruin the lines of the picture. Started me thinking about a different genre involving individuals 'exiled' for criminal acts in a self-contained environment, and made me start thinking that this was a prototype before they worked out a viable system for it.

Not everyone is a 10 ;) It was a doodle that took on life.

A Bane Suit you mean?

Yeah, that one--a prototype 'Bane' suit.

Any rate, other thoughts came to mind as well.

"They said I could go Outside, with the proper protective gear to shield against immediate radiation poisoning, breathable air for the duration of a short stay. I had heard stories of how horrible it was since the Great Drought, but now, with the seconds counting down until the outer dust-lock opens all I can think if is the immense dunes of sand where they used to grow the food for a good portion of the world."

Very nice job here.

I would like to see the front side of the T-suit, so that I can see the helmet.

You know... for reference, if that's alright.

Imagine a nano-assembler based synthsuit, designed to protect the wearer from harsh environs. Vacuum, temperature, acidic materials, what have you, all in a simple to use latex-like material that sticks to the skin, protecting it from just about anything you could possibly throw at it.

No thicker than a handful of atoms, it's designed to be worn short term in an emergency (but can easily be worn long term if needed), disposing of sweat, grime and other wastes (turning them all into more nano-assembled synthsuit materials), regulating the wearer's temperature, all while passing through sensations such as touch and temperature. Some versions even contain communication devices, medical subsystems, and other enhancements; almost all contain homing devices so that the wearer can be found in an emergency.

It effectively starts off as a small pellet of goo, not unlike a paint gun pellet or a gel-cap medicine tablet. In an emergency, you either swallow it or crack it open, letting the liquid fall on your skin, whereupon it does it's magic by consuming dead skin cells and random matter in the area -- the gel-caps are kept very dense in order to give it sufficient coverage for the average person, and it can use random rocks as "food" if need be. In true emergencies, segments of the suit can be peeled off and given to others to grow their own suits, a process that reduces the material to a vague, jelly like substance as it flows to repair the tear and cover the other person.

Now imagine some practical joker disabled the deactivation routines, leaving a batch of tablets that upon being activated will simply not deactivate, requiring the unfortunate wearer get help from an experienced nano-technician (and a class 3 nano-lab) to ever get the suit off. Imagine the practical joke goes a bit further -- rather than just consume sweat and grime, the nanites consume anything cloth related that spends more than a few seconds near the skin, meaning that the suit (which is skin tight on a molecular level and designed to be worn under some other form of clothing) is now the only thing the wearer can put on. Anything else vanishes into so much dust.

... Now imagine you're poor Private 1st Class Donna Sho, who is about to discover she, alongside a handful of her shipmates, are going to spend their entire 7 year deep space survey commission (far, far away from any class 3 nano-labs) very safe, very busy, and very, very naked...

I could imagine worse.

Imagine the nanosuit was made by Microsoft, and since your clothes weren't approved by Microsoft for use, might not be "compatible..."

There was actually a story on MCStories about something similar -- a bunch of archaeologists after a nanotech apocalypse were investigating the ruins of a mall or somesuch, and a few of them got infected with a "loyalty modification" of some kind, leading to them only being able to wear this specific company's clothes, eat this specific company's food, have sex with people who are also part of this loyalty group, etc.

The problem was... that company had been extinct for 10,000 years.

"Captain, we're detecting anomalous magnetic and energy signatures at coordinates Rad 51, Theta 315, Phi 90." Ensign Sho said, not looking up from her station, her shiny red hands flying over the command console.

The Captain glanced over at her, smiling at the sight of her pert red tush peeking through the chair. "Thoughts, Ensign?"

"It... It uh, does not correspond to known life signs nor any obvious signs of civilization. It may be some form of mineral or crystal, maybe some form of camouflaged life or technology."

"Ok then, we'll send some Red Skins down to check." The Captain turned and nodded at the young woman off to his left. "Ensign, the away team will need a science officer, go meet them in Launch Bay 5."

Donna Sho blanched as she stammered, shrinking away from the sudden attention. "B-but Captain..."

"Problem, Ensign?"

She brushed a strand of shiny red nanite-coated hair out of her face. "I... I... I'm just... I'm a Junior Science Off... Officer. I'm not qualified to... I mean... I am but..."

The Captain frowned. "I can't hear you, Ensign Sho."

"I... I can't go out... like this."

The Captain stood up from his chair with a flourish, his boots snapping together tightly. "Atten-tion!"

Instantly, everyone in the room stood at attention, their arms and legs in lockstep. All except Ensign Sho, who was crouched over, standing up while doing her best to cover her body with her arms.

"Ensign Sho, what were the three options we decided were available to us when we discovered the nannysuit situation?"

"Ss-sir?"

"The. Three. Options. We discussed them in the ready room after the situation became apparent."

"Yes... yes... Well, first off, we... we could have turned around and flew back to Alliance space, and gotten help from a Nannylab."

He nodded. "And why, Ensign Sho, did we decide against that?"

"Because we were months out before we ran a shakedown on our Nannysuits." Ensign Sho shuffled from one leg to the other, her arms crossing over her nude body. "It might have cost us our commission. Sir."

"Very good, Ensign Sho. And what was option two, the other option we decided not to use?"

"We could have placed the afflicted in stasis or the brig for the duration of our mission. We decided not to because we would be down 16 crewmembers for no good reason."

"Very, very good Ensign Sho. And what option did we decide to go with?"

"We decided to carry on our mission as normal, ignoring the defective Nannysuits, sir."

"And if I do recall correctly, it was a Ensign... Sho that argued in favor of that, was it not? What was your argument that swayed us to chose that option?"

Sho flinched. She'd never live that down, her rushing off the Sickbay bed, pushing the Chief Medical Officer out of the way of the camera, and screaming at the Captain that he wouldn't *dare* do that. The only thing that made it worse was the fact that she had forgotten, just for a moment, that her new "friends" destroyed her clothing, meaning that not only did she make a complete fool of herself telling off the Senior Staff, she did so while nude and blatantly exposing herself to them.

"I.. I... I pointed out that our Nannysuits will not affect our job performance during the mission, sir. That we are professionals and we can be expected to act like professionals, Sir."

"Yes indeed, but that may have been in error. You seem to be letting your nannysuit affect you after all, Ensign Sho."

Donna resisted the urge to glance down at her shiny, red body. "Sir??"

"Is that what you call a proper salute, Ensign Sho?!" The Captain's voice was a bolt of thunder from a blue sky; some of the younger officers flinched behind his back. She noticed that the second in command, the pompus ass, was grinning.

At the same time, Sho's arms snapped to her sides, long since engrained conditioned reflexes kicking in as her hand brought itself up for a sharp salute, her red bosom bouncing freely with the motion.

"No Sir. Sorry Sir!" Her arms twitched as she desperately held them back from going back to cover herself again. She had gotten used to the idea of covering herself with her arms, until they found some way to get the nanite bodysuits to uninstall, the unique prank program that someone had installed on them destroyed any and all clothing the affected -- the Red Skins, as they were known -- tried to put on. She, and the 15 other poor saps that had gotten defective suits, alongside the 9 or so others that had somehow gotten corrupted nannites afterwards, hadn't been able to wear clothes in months, and it would be nearly another 7 years before they could do so again.

The Captain began pacing back and forth in front of her. "Ensign Sho, did you change your mind after you gave that impassioned argument from Sickbay? Do you no longer feel you can perform your duties as assigned to you?"

"No, sir. I mean, Yes sir." She closed her eyes and flinched at her words, realizing after the fact that she was titillating everyone who was watching her. "I mean... I can perform them, Sir!"

"Other than your attire, do you have some specific objection to joining an away team?"

"Not as such, Sir!"

"You know what I would have given to be offered a chance to join an Away team when I was an Ensign, Sho?" The Captain sighed. "A lack of pants wouldn't have kept me away from it, I can tell you that much."

"But, Sir, I... When I was in sickbay, I was expecting to spend my commission buried in paperwork down in Engineering, not... not... up here, where everyone can see me." She stressed the word 'see', almost immediately regretting it. She noticed out the corner of her eye that several people behind the Captain were sneaking peeks, but she didn't dare break rank and cover herself.

"Yes indeed, but then Wilson refused to carry his nannysuit pill with him to RG-541-Gamma and it turned out to be a good deal less hospitable than the old badger thought. Ensign, I picked you to replace Wilson cause I needed a smart egghead brave enough to throw the Chief Medical Officer out of the way and scream at her Captain if the situation warrants it. Are you smart, Sho?!"

Donno was infinitely glad that her new, candy apple red skin mostly hid her blushing from view. "S-so they tell me, Sir."

"Good. Now, I need an egghead to join away missions. Someone I can trust to scream at me if things go tits up. Someone who just happens to damn near invincible because of a thin layer of nanites covering her entire body. Can I trust you, Ensign Sho?"

"Yes Sir!"

"And we already know you're quite good at screaming at me, and we can all see the nanites covering you." He smiled, but to his credit his eyes never wavered down at her body. "So I will ask you again, Ensign Sho. Are you opposed to joining an Away team?"

"No Sir! Permission to head to Launch Bay 5, Sir!"

"Granted, now get your cherry red ass to work!"

"Aye aye, Captain." Donna said, her arms twitching anew as she resisted the urge to throw them over her body as she ran for the Elevator. With the Captain no longer speaking, sneaking peeks at her was fair game, and half the Bridge crew did so.

She finally allowed herself to shudder and throw her arms over herself once the doors closed, blocking her from sight. 6 years, 9 months to go.

The suit's engineering allows the suit itself to compensate for fluid pressure within the body rather than having it pressurized about the person. The suit would do this by providing distributed tension through the material, possibly a reactive "smart" polymer, which maintains an offset pressure of 101.3kPa, enough to keep atmospheric pressure on the skin inside. This allows free movement of the extremities. The head is in the helmet, and moves independently of the helmet, so it can be fully pressurized and not compromise movement.

Hence, Tension suit...because it keeps your body intact by material tension rather than gas pressure.

Well, the more form-fitting the suit is around the body, the fewer air spaces need to be maintained. The suit holds the pressure, rather than holding atmosphere to hold the pressure. This would enable pressure containment about the body while maintaining mobility. The only air-filled parts would be around "rigid" body regions, like the midline pelvis, the thorax, and the head. As long as the suit is skin-tight at the joints, you can pressurize this thing to full atmospheric pressure and still have movement. (Modern EMU's can only pressurize to maybe 3/4 atmospheric pressure because at the full 101.3kPa, the suit is less a suit and more a balloon...there's no room to flex limbs!)
