Electromechanical Interface Nexus
When integrated into a starship with other components, an EMI Nexus is used to facilitate manual control over numerous electromechanical systems which, by default, run in an automated manner according to their programmed roles. Typically, the EMI Nexus acts as a conduit between a capsuleer and their ship, serving as an interface through which they can operate normally automated electromechanical systems, such as a Central System Controller. Other more simple tasks, such as the activation of a ship's modules, also frequently rely on these components.

Emergent Neurovisual Interface
As a capsuleer, few things are more important in space flight than the ability to instantly gauge one's surroundings and make decisions accordingly. For this reason, capsules inside starships make frequent use of neurovisual reproductions; emulations that recreate external stimuli using the most low-latency processor available – the human brain. This process relies on digital relays from camera drones and monitoring systems embedded into the hull. After capturing the data, they then feed it directly into the brain, at which point the external surrounds are recreated almost instantaneously. Functions familiar to any capsuleer such as the overview, tactical overlay and hostile threat indicators are just a few examples of the device's capabilities.

Although NVI technology has been around since the inception of the capsule, the addition of salvaged Sleeper drone components and the now widely available fullerene polymers has carried the functionality forward into the new Tech III paradigm. Even before the first Strategic Cruiser was built, engineers hypothesized about potential issues with an NVI trying to communicate with an almost limitless combination of subsystems. Fortunately, the solution to the problem came wrapped up in the same technology that moved Tech III vessels from the world of scientific theory into reality.

Fullerene Intercalated Sheets
The manufacture of this component requires the rarest and most valuable technology salvageable from Sleeper drones. These sheets represent some of the most advanced composite materials known to New Eden. When other, more valuable devices are embedded into the structure at the molecular level, the sheets' performance enhances tremendously. The end result is a component with an almost endless number of applications in starship design.

Ultra-resilient armor plating, defensive nanoassemblers, electronics housing, and even the molecular-level circuitry itself are only a few of the near-countless roles that fullerene intercalated sheets can perform. Although unrivalled in their modularity, the cost of construction remains a barrier on supply; consequently, they remain a component to be used only when absolutely necessary.

Scientists and engineers alike claim that a steadier supply of these rare Sleeper pieces would instantly advance starship design ten years. Other experts have made even more interesting claims, stating that the staggering utility of the components suggests a level of technological advancement sufficient for capsule production.

Fulleroferrocene Power Conduits
These conduits supply power to minute, molecular-level devices. Extremely strong and yet surprising flexible, they have traditionally been used in rare situations where the normal methods of power supply were rendered impossible. The advent of Tech III starship technology and the influx of fullerene-based materials have seen the conduits take on new and more widespread roles.

The addition or removal of a single subsystem in a Tech III vessel can drastically change the ship's structure, and with it the internal wiring and available power supply routes. Fulleroferrocene power conduits have become an essential component in the construction of these new vessels for this very reason. The conduits can be remapped through a ship with relative ease, allowing for the near-endless variations of subsystems to be completely interchangeable without posing any problems of how to power them.

Metallofullerene Plating
Metallofullerene plating is used to protect the connective joins in hull and subsystem structures so that Tech III vessels can be taken apart and put back together endlessly, all without the risk of wear. Mechanical engineers first attempted to create the plating using plutonium metallofullerenes, but it was quickly discovered that even miniscule amounts of them had a sizeable impact on ship mass. When integrated into armor plating in larger amounts, they also risked turning the vessel into a giant warhead, something even less desirable.

A solution was finally found. Tiny amounts of metallofullerenes would be integrated in conjunction with far larger quantities of graphene nanoribbons and then coated in powdered C-540 graphite. This process allowed the material to maintain structural durability whilst keeping mass down. The last and most ingenious addition was to incorporate fulleroferrocene into the metal beneath layers of electromechanical hull sheeting. This had the effect of turning the normally dangerous explosive reactions into kinetic energy, which could then be used to supplement the power supply to local nanoassemblers.

Nanowire Composites
Nanowire composites function as connective links between subsystems. Graphene nanoribbons form the base of the components, carrying electrical power between other devices integrated into electromechanical hull sheets. A final coating of thermal diffusion film ensures efficient heat dispersion, allowing a starship captain to overload modules connected to subsystems without risking the entire vessel.

Neurovisual Output Analyzer
As a capsuleer, few things are more important in space-flight than the ability to instantly gauge one's surroundings and make decisions accordingly. For this reason, capsules inside starships make frequent use of neurovisual reproductions; emulations that recreate external stimuli using the most low-latency processor available: the human brain. This process relies on digital relays from camera drones and monitoring systems embedded into the hull. After the data is captured, it is then relayed directly into the brain, at which point the external surrounds are recreated almost instantaneously.

The synthetic translation of external stimuli into neurovisual imagery is incredibly risky, even relative to the standard hazards of pod piloting. Even though capsuleers have an innate resistance to neurobiological damage from these sorts of processes, the near- constant exposure to them has been linked to increased risk of aggressive neurodegenerative diseases. In recent years, engineers have begun to integrate neurovisual output analyzers into a starship's electronics systems. These devices monitor the pilot's status and, if necessary, take measures to protect against anything from mild headaches to catastrophic neural failure.

Optimized Nano-Engines
Forming the beating heart of the Sleeper's automated drones, these tiny engines count in the billions. When fully intact, they deliver levels of power efficiency unrivalled by current technology. Unfortunately, whenever a Sleeper drone is destroyed, these engines are the first to go with them, making it difficult to emulate their functionality without the addition of other materials.

To recreate a functional nanoengine housing, PPD fullerene fibers are combined with metallofullerenes and fullerene fiber conduits to rebuild the basic structures that once housed them. After that, the fused nanomechanical engines are connected to one another, forming a composite whole.

Although mechanical engineers have theorized about this construction method for many decades, the process was always held back by a lack of fullerene material. It is said that only hours after the discovery of fullerite clouds in wormhole space, the empires used significant amounts of their fullerene stockpiles to produce these engines. The reasoning behind this is simply the staggering breadth of potential applications these engines have. When it comes to engineering, there isn't much they can't do.

Reconfigured Subspace Calibrator
Subspace calibrators perform the crucial role of tuning in on subspace frequencies. Being able to accurately pinpoint a destination on the other side of a wormhole is vital to interstellar travel, as it allows pilots to traverse wormholes safe in the knowledge that they won't accidentally arrive out the other side at the centre of a sun.

This particular calibrator was produced from a combination of fullerene polymers and salvaged Sleeper technology. The unique grouping enables some drastic reconfigurations to the basic design. The end result is a vastly increased efficiency in calculation time. Due to the modular design of Tech III vessels, tuning into subspace frequencies must be done individually for each subsystem. The development of this particular component has been an important time-saver in an area where mere seconds can mean life or death.

Reinforced Metallofullerene Alloys
These ultra-hard alloys are initially created from lanthanum metallofullerenes and heuristic selfassemblers; a combination that makes for an incredibly resilient base material. From there, fulleroferrocene and graphene nanoribbons are integrated into the metals, forming alloys that have unprecedented levels of structural strength. Although they have many uses in the manufacture of armor plating, the distinguishing feature of the alloys is the level of modularity they allow in starship design. A hull section comprised of metallofullerene alloys is able to accommodate a virtually endless array of subsystems around it, no matter how different their shape is.

Self-Assembling Nanolattice
Self-Assembling Nanolattices are the result of a breakthrough in applied fullerene technology achieved by a joint Carthum-Viziam research team formed at the request of the Imperial Navy in late YC116. The development of this technology was made possible by the contributions of numerous capsuleers, most notably members of the venerable loyalist alliance Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris.

Although these carbon-based structures are exceptional in their high strength and low mass, it is their ability to reconfigure rapidly when exposed to electromagnetic fields that makes Self-Assembling Nanolattices one of the most significant advancements in starship engineering in decades.

Warfare Computation Core
Warfare computation cores begin as basic microprocessors that handle the flow of data between various combat analyzers, prioritizing vital information and calculations. The cores are first built around salvaged Sleeper warfare processors which are then further enhanced by the integration of fullerene polymers and other Sleeper technology. The addition of emergent combat analyzers expands the functionality to include more abstract combat calculations, such as comparative analyses of fleets and predictive IFF identifications.

When encased in thermophased metallofullerene plating, the cores can be embedded directly into the ship's hull. This allows for a far more efficient production method of Tech III vessels, enabling any subsystem variation to integrate into a hull without the need for further redesign in the combat electronics systems.
