Thanks.  We're using Diaspora, as Claus linked to; it is a bit
space-opera-ish, but that is to be expected since we started from (and are
still technically in) the Wing Commander 'verse.  The AIs are just more
NPCs (or in one case a PC), when they are self-aware at all (otherwise
they're just tools) - or at least, that is true of the ones this campaign
has touched on - and mostly only matter so far as the PCs will interact
with them (an adbot might literally only matter for one sentence in setting
a scene, for example), so I don't see where they need much more prep than
other such characters.  (Though I admit to quite a bit of improv...but
then, with my players, improv is less optional than for most campaigns I
have seen.)  If you want to read the campaign logs,
http://blacksuncondensates.wikidot.com/ - we play most Saturdays (save when
life forces a skipped week), and I try to post each session's log by the
next session.
