It should not be put on the market. However, it could be made available as a BPC drop within one of the drone regions. If allowed it could not be a market item but an item to be sold via contracts only.
It would make a nice killmail ; )

The more I think about this the more I think this might be a good idea. CRAZY! This would be a great way to bring in a new Ship Class into EvE and the many layers to acquire one would mean the ship would be a NASTY one to run into.
Ok hear goes.
Layer 1
It would be a drop BPC within the drone regions RARE it would require a Skill something like Hive Mind Nero Interface Translation Geek out more if you like also a drop less rare. You need to train the skill 1st so you are able to scan for it with ether Code Breaker or Analyzer.
Layer 2
The BPC that you get will not show a Domix Drone BS that area will be blank you need to do some things 1st. Remember this is a Drone ; ). You need to get a DNA sample of yourself why? because the ship is one big AI life platform your DNA needs to be transposed into machine code you now like this 11000100 so the DNA is just part of the build the AI life you will be surrounded by needs too recognizes you and your pod as one of there own. The DNA sample can be picked up at a Medical facility for a small fee. The build would also allow not just the Gallente tier 1 BS but each races tier 1. Your DNA will determine what BS will be needed each race will have a representative. Since you used your DNA YOU will be the only one able to fly the ship at least WILE YOUR ALIVE ; ) Anyone remember the SiFi Show LEXX well that Idea is taken for there. If you are podded the AI life within the ship will louse your life signal that is transmitted through subspace and will go dormant. You will need to bring another DNA sample to reawaken your prized Ship. If you have any other personal within your Corp or Alliance of the same race I hope you trust them. Cause if they get there hands on the ship before you do and have there DNA sample the ship is now there's hehe. The build time will also take much longer than any BS T1 or T2 in game atm.
This Ship will be considered unfriendly in Empire to ANYTHING or ANYONE! what you say why? Its a Rouge Drone just cause your in it your surrounded by drone parts masking any information of your sec status etc... You fly the ship you become a drone yourself and an instant red flashy thing Low Sec & Null your fine. You could still jump through the gate into high sec you will get a warning but don't. Everyone on the other side will be able to shoot at ya and since the ship will have a global agro of a sort you will not be able to jump back into Low Sec or Null sec to safety.
This will be a VERY POWERFUL ship VERY WELL suited for slow PVP but even better in small gang and fleet PvP. The ship not being allow in High Sec is similar to Cap Ships not be allowed. If ya want to fly-em you need to move out of Empire. There is a lot more I can add to this like some twits and turns in the build and a LEXX inspired special ability that can only be used once between DT's hehe but its late and I'm tired. My hope is that this inspires others that is always my intention. O7

I think what we have here is an evolving idea of "augmented ships". That drone domi with it's claws is kinda scarey - but what else can you do with that?

So far though a highly flexible ship in this concept is already used in T3 cruisers.

It would be great, at least, to get BP drops of rogue drone designs, so we can have drones much like those rogue drones - and of course possibly some of those modded ship drones like we have seen with that rogue domi.

We can dream.

Valid point but CCP has ways of dealing with such things I am sure of that!!

What racial bonuses would it use? Gallente at least. And since no ship has it, the Gallente bonus should be for drone tracking speed and range. Or a 20% bonus per level for all drone upgrades and drone rigs installed

Very good question but my thoughts on this you may not like. Since these would be drone based ships none of them would be a drone carrier at all. Drones as a rule create facilities to build there fellow drone brethren they don't carrie them.
All bonuses would go to damage, tanking & other things. Try to put yourself in the shoes of a drone if you were a drone & had a belly full of them (more or less the drone would think it was pregnant) and wouldn't be as good in a fight being handicapped by its pregnancy. Of course the reverse can be said too the drone based ship would become more vicious. Yes I now all that sounds silly but its what I end up with when I put myself in the shoes of a drone.
All this is open for round table discussion keeping in mind the race bonuses can be applied in various ways. To say this would be a flexible ship would be an understatement. Figuring the percentages and the numbers on that sort of thing regrettably is not my forte, but when I have more time I will try to come up with something and post it and see what ya think.

Numbers are not my thing as fare as stats on this vessel that would be for someone else not me. "Shadow Class" could be the type of Ship taken from the SiFi series LEXX as in Devin Shadow ; )..
May be it could be the bridge Ship that some players have talked about More than a BS less than a Cap Ship ideas escape me atm awaiting inspiration to stop by again like the other day lol!!!

And correct me if I am wrong but wasn't the rouge drone issue caused by an experimental drone that escaped testing from Jove space. Another reason the ship would be a bad ass Jove Tech.! But I'm probably wrong lol.

would be a awesome and fun drone boat.
if they go off on the drone theme they could make it have no guns and a bonus to 1 extra drone/level of BS skill.
other bonuses could be dmg/speed/hp of drones also.
nos bonus(not neut) range and amount sucked

there are so many ways this could be done without interfering with the existing ships.

I've thought this idea for a while, as well.

It could also perhaps be an LP store purchase from the Drone Queen (perhaps other drone agents in the Drone Regions). I like the idea of removing guns hardpoints, but increasing the max number of drones you can control. Perhaps it has space for utilities only in it's high slots (tractor beams, salvagers, etc.). Maybe the drone Dominix has a drone-only manufacturing bay on it, or allows for a special warfare link module which increases the efficacy of all drones used by a gang.

I was also thinking they might behave similarly to strategic cruisers: if you get blown up in one, you may loose some skill of some kind. (Perhaps some drones, or levels in some new "Drone Ship" spaceship command skill).

Perhaps a mutated, droned out Vexor could be added, too, as a lower-level toy.

All in all, I've always wanted a drone-domi, too, and think it's a great idea.

Just that LEXX inspired idea the ship could target a planet and destroy all PI structures on it 1 planet per DT and its just an idea.
There could be a preventive measure to ensure that this is not taken advantage of. Only 1 drone ship can be active per Corp & a set number active per alliance depending on size of ACTIVE personal.
This could be another way to encouraging growth within the alliance. Upper leadership could enjoy the benefits of having this capability actually going into a system and in time taking the hole system over as long as it doesn't interfere with the Dust 514 marriage.
Easily shot down but just a creative idea.

Wonder if the DRF would stop building supercaps long enough to build a drone-domi. hmmm. It's not an i-win button, so I guess not.

Y'know what would really kick the ass?

A "rogue drone ship" that you can use to take salvaged materials found in space and use to build more drones. Why have a POS or need to use production facilities?

Such a ship would be very useful for nomadic corporations, and put drones on the same par with energy weapons that never run out of ammo. A ship that can make more drones.

Only rogue drone technology could manage this making of more drones in space.

Small ships making small drones, and larger ships larger drones, until perhaps a rogue drone carrier where the making of fighters is possible.

Already any corporation with facilities or any industrialist can build drones, so such a specialized ship is not going to kill Eve.

This would also go with the Lexx concept, whereby the Lexx used living "moth" ships as shuttles and would generate more of them as older ones died out.

Other then rat drone poo, there is literally nothing to do in drone space.
Drone regions are broken in many ways, not all of them beneficial. The DRF just happened to take some lemons and made some sort of super-lemon that kills all other lemons.

But adding an faction ship like every other rat type has, that adds ISK and not minerals isn't going to make anything worse.

Also a Rogue Drone Ship would be rad.
