-Found in sedimentary deposits on Tiegart III
Gallentyne is a non-Newtonian material that in its native state resembles an ultra-dense hyper-hydrocarbon liquid that is somewhat translucent and green-gold in coloration depending on the purity. It is commonly utilized in self-repairing hull composite but can be catalyzed into a form that reinforces crystalline structures increasing the resistance to shearing forces in structural components. Surprisingly, in the medical field very-low concentrations of Gallentyne can be used to chelate heavy metals from the system. Solutions of Gallentyne also seem to have the added effect of countering osteoporosis and other bone density conditions in a wide variety of patients. While the medical profession is unsure of how this is possible and medical trials are ongoing the standing theory is that somehow amounts of Gallentyne in excess of what is needed seems to bond to the skeletal structure in a similar way that medical grade titanium might. Studies have suggested that if the aforementioned assessment is accurate then Gallentyne might in the future be a miracle cure for injuries involving shattered bones and the associated internal trauma.
-Atomic Number: 125
-Atomic Mass: 317
-The name is from the Greek word for Deep, Altum.
-Found in commonly in the ‘cooled’ core of a failed Class F (type g) geometallic planet.
Altradium is utilized most commonly to make windows and portholes on vessels as well as indirect light admission apertures (ILAA). This material is fairly strong and when alloyed with very small amounts of Gallentyne and a few other elements it can be used to make hull panels on starships that allow sensors to scan outwardly through the hull without the need to cut a hole through the hull to allow sensors to see the outside world. In its natural state, Altradium is found with Dataurium in veins of Sedrinite rock at the outer layers of a ‘cool’ planetary core of a type F geometallic planet at the 7th stage of core death (type G) in the Diderot solar system. For note the core of a class F planet even at stage 7 isn’t technically cool. The core of a 7th stage type F has lost most of its internal temperature and with time the core will inevitably cool and solidify leaving a mineral rich but otherwise barren world with no chance of developing any sort of life.
-Atomic Number: 126
-Atomic Mass: 318
Davinite (Known as ToThuum in Davia) is a foreign introduction to this periodic table as the source of Davinite comes from the Divine Davian Empire who presumably mines this crystal from some extra-galactic source. While it does fit in the Table by virtue of its atomic number it is expected that at some point there will be a local element with the same atomic number either created in a lab or discovered in a natural state. Davian red crystals are noted to have an incredibly dense and complex crystalline lattice structure that with some synthetic altering can be made to have almost no melting point, reflect particular wavelengths of light as well as being capable of dispersing heat over its entire surface. These traits make them particularly effective in resisting heat.
-Atomic Number: 127
-Atomic Mass: 319
-The name is from Maniae, the Greek deity of Insanity.
Manaetronium and its negative health effects are well documented within the Dominion. Manaetronium in its natural state is already on average 50% more radioactively potent than uranium, however Manaetronium in its natural state has thus far been found to include seven isotopes; Mtr-319, Mtr-318, Mtr-317, Mtr-316, Mtr-315, Mtr-321, Mtr-327 in order of most common to least common. Manaetronium is one of the few naturally occurring radioactive substances that does not produce any alpha or beta type radioactive particles instead Manaetronium seems to emit gamma, delta and epsilon radioactive effects. When utilized in nuclear fission Manaetronium also releases intense amounts of neutron radiation requiring additional safety features and exceptionally thick reactor shielding. The health effects of exposure to Manaetronium however represent as a rapid loss of mental capacities as the neurological system of a humanoid is overwhelmed by Epsilon radiation. For reasons, currently unknown Manaetronium seems to hit the nervous system first causing the three symptoms of exposure within minutes; inability to focus or speak, loss of voluntary muscular control all over the body, mitochondrial necrosis in areas of exposure and soon after the third symptom death results after violent muscular spasms that are strong enough to break bones and cause additional injury to the victim and those attempting to restrain the victim. In minor exposure cases, it has been suggested that amputation of an effected limb early in the necrosis stage can stop or slow the spread of epsilon particles however this treatment only works in 12% of cases and is functionally worthless if exposure occurs on the torso or head. Due to this mining for Manaetronium is done exclusively by remote controlled devices and the decontamination process of the mining equipment often takes twelve or more hours. The only reason Manaetronium is allowed by the state to be mined and enriched in any quantity is because of its comparative efficiency against uranium or plutonium in industrial fission based power plants. Despite the risks of exposure, Manaetronium based fission reactors weigh 60% less than their Plutonium or Uranium fueled competitors, because less overall fuel (and a smaller reaction vessel) is needed to produce the same amount of power, however Manaetronium reactors are bulkier due to the need for additional shielding against fission byproducts and radiation. The most common use for Manaetronium reactors is on industrial space stations where should the worst happen and there is a reactor breach, these systems pose no threat to a planetary ecosystem. It has been rumored that the Dominion has made an enriched version of Manaetronium for use as part of a epsilon radiation weapon of some sort but no evidence of this has ever come to light.

-The name is from the Greek Deity Lyssa who represented Rabies.
Lyssantium is most often encountered as a fibrous crystalline substance (similar in appearance to natural asbestos) that is normally a golden-brown color with a banded luster to it. Technically considered a pseudo metal by the Dominion, this material is highly toxic as it is prone to splintering and shards of Lyssantium can be inhaled or enter the body through the skin. It does not take much exposure for the symptoms of Lyssantium poisoning to occur. Symptoms of poisoning are very similar to those of Rabies from earth, though someone who is suffering Lyssantium poisoning cannot transmit it to others even though they may froth at the mouth and attempt to bite and or inflict other injuries on those around them. At the current time, there is no cure for Lyssantium poisoning if the parts per million in the body reaches a certain point. It is known that an adult human can suffer full effect of poisoning if exposed to roughly 3 micrograms per kilogram of body weight. The aforementioned calculation means that a 6’ 3” adult male who weighs 68 kilograms will suffer full poisoning if exposed to 0.204 milligrams of pure Lyssantium. The Dominion still mines Lyssantium in small regulated amounts as once it’s crystalline structure is stabilized under extreme pressure and heat it is critical in superconductors, central processing units and in amorphous-LED technology. It should be noted that Lyssantium mining operations are operated by the government only and have some of the strictest safety regulations known due to in the inherent hazards of the material being mined.
-Atomic Mass: 322
Arasatine was one of the first new elements discovered by the Dominion. In its natural state, it is a silvery-grey metal which forms a nearly perfect cubic form similar to talc or some forms of fluorine. It is generally inert and poses no direct health hazards to humans to the point that one would have to ingest several pounds of Arasatine to suffer any sort of medical malady barring the expected gastro-intestinal consequences of ingesting that much metal. Arasatine as a material has effectively replaced the use of iron as it has a much higher tensile strength and forms the backbone of all non-ferrous alloys used in situations where the product is expected to survive extreme heating and cooling cycles as well as be exposed to cosmic radiation and or endure the stresses of combat and moving at faster than light speeds. Effectively Arasatine alloys are easily several times more durable than the best of the Gigapascal steels and similar such alloys. The price for this is that simply the melting point for Arasatine is quite high in comparison, originally it also could not be formed into curves so Dominion vessels for example between the years of 2073 and 2096 BEC were often angular and a lot of architecture from that time period had a unnatural rigid industrial look to it. New machine tools and advances in molecular welding technology allowed for simulated curves while the discovery of new molecular metallurgy allowed for the first curved Arasatine Alloy structural members and hull plating. The major issue with Arasatine is that molecularly created versions even when alloyed have half the tensile strength and seem to also lose their non-ferrous qualities becoming detrimentally magnetic and modestly fragile when the exact same molecules are arranged in a laboratory. In theory, there is some process that is found on the one planet that has Arasatine that makes it what it is.
-Atomic Number: 131
-Atomic Mass: 331
Dataurium was one of the greatest elemental discoveries in Dominion history because it’s discovery lead to the discovery of Altradium, Cordolenite and its use with Nostromite converts Pyril from worthless metallic rocks to a strategic resource. With that said Dataurium is mined from Sedrinite type rock which is a semi-igneous form of rock that is most commonly found in the outer layers of a ‘cool’ planetary core of a type F geometallic planet at the 7th stage of core death (type G). In about 26% of the deposits of Sedrinite, Dataurium and Altradium will be present where as in 34% Dataurium, Atradium and Cordolenite will be present. Of the remaining 40% of Sedrinite only 6-8% of the time will a prospector find pure elemental Dataurium. In common use Dataurium is generally utilized in electronics to nullify ionization and electro-magnetic pulses. This of course makes it ideal when combined with Lithon for computer circuitry and particularly effective when combined with Pyril while Nostromite is used as a doping agent to bring the two other elements together. Dataurium dioxide also has use as a congealing-agent in regenerative hull composites as it makes Gallentyne in its natural state thicker and far easier to apply to other solutions while not changing any of its other properties.

Teosinite is a complex pseudo silicate compound that is exclusively found in Nichols fields on the Planet Taveta. Unlike a number of minerals known in this galaxy and in the Dominion’s home galaxy it is possible to watch a crystal cluster of Teosinite to grow at a rate that is visibly perceptible just as long as it is in contact with the soil of the planet of Taveta, and in a few rare places on Risallas and New Magoro. When viewed from a distance, groups of Teosinite roughly resemble green-blue ice formations with the exception that they often grow vertically towards the sky and have full radial symmetry. The purest form of Teosinite is perfectly clear which appears in approximately 15% of all clusters. The rest of Teosinite clusters on average range into mildly cloudy (23%), moderately clouded (42%) and the rest are completely clouded giving them a milky green-blue color. Interestingly Teosinite, that is clear grows the slowest (1-3” per week) whereas fully cloudy teosinte grows rapidly (8”-14” per week) under ideal conditions in both cases. In common culture clouded Teosinite is generally available to the public while clear and mildly clouded Teosinite are a government regulated strategic resource. In common use Teosinite is used as a hard element in landscaping as it can form impenetrable barriers that can be used to shepherd foot traffic through paths. It is common for rows of Teosinite to be used as Windbreaks and in lieu of installing masonry walls and or fences. Some specimens of Teosinite have been grown as standalone specimens in the one might grow an accent tree which takes several generations to produce a specimen that resembles a medium sized shade tree. In recent times specific, very slow growing clouded specimens of Teosinite have become popular in Bonsai culture as they are quite low maintenance. The high clarity types of Teosinite are harvested and utilized in the internal walls of Dominion Constant Flow Ambient Temperature Fusion Reaction Systems, lower clarity forms are used in electronics. Since Teosinite stops growing when removed from the planetary surface of the three planets where it will grow it effectively becomes a critical mineral that has industrial uses. When considered in this light Teosinite after being processed is used in in two ways. The first way Teosinite is utilized to coat the inside of the torus used in the construction of Ambient temperature Fusion Reactors. The coating exists to focus the normal field effects inside the reaction to maintain the fusion effect at ambient temperatures. The second use of Teosinite by the dominion is in circuit boards and chips because of its ability to act as a conductor without the need for including other elements to create conductivity unlike other forms of naturally occurring silicon. This saves quite a bit of effort and time in the production of computer hardware. When paired with molecular wiring and circuitry to direct the flow of energy in systems Teosinite circuit boards when doped with a varied mixture of Lithon/Dataurium the same boards are capable of acting as room temperature super conductors which massively increases the computational power of the Dominion’s computer systems while not incrementally increasing weight or bulk.

Niarhadine is an interesting substance that is fairly rare and is typically found in the cores of certain types of stars and thus cannot be artificially made in any form. The common source for this material are failed Class K stars (less than 0.08%) and the micro nebulae found in the Vesuvius cluster. When harvested and refined in whatever amounts are possible Niarhadine is a strong, but light weight, alkaline metal. In pure form it is a semi-translucent dark grey to near black color and is commonly said to the opacity of large rock salt in that some light will pass through but it is not even remotely clear. The Dominion makes great use of whatever Niarhadine it can mine and refine as a primary agent for making its starship hulls tougher and the internal structures of such vessels far more resilient. In comparison to various carbon-based compounds that could be used in starship construction (and still are) Niarhadine is far more efficient as less is needed for the same applications, and it is not conductive to heat or electricity. When used in structural components such as support beams for example Niarhadine fibers incorporated into the beam will grant it three to four times the rigidity that a carbon-based compound such as fullerene would allow for. The down side to Niarhadine is that it is a more complex element and weighs a lot more than elemental or lab-made carbon and in terms of blocking radiation while it can absorb some it’s nowhere near graphite’s capacity for that task. In tests with Manaetronium-fission reactors it was found that Niarhadine is not useful as it only deflects neutrons and barely at best absorbs them. The few operating Manaetronium-fission reactors in the Dominion generally have a Niarhadine lining on the reactor vessel but still use graphite and other conventional materials for the control rods.

Talosine is a soft powdery substance that roughly resembles a sickly green gypsum except it has absolutely none of the same uses. Unlike Gypsum, Talosine if ground into a power and applied to the skin will actually integrate into the skin and begin to grow at a rate of 0.0391 micrometers per 36 hours. This would be an interesting concept for recreational body modification but the problem is that Talosine crystals would continue growing inwardly following the path of the host’s nervous system. Externally Talosine would begin to grow crystalline rosettes along the skin while outward growth in the cutaneous layers and fissuring of the skin causing a constant state of bleeding around the growing areas of Talosine. This growth of course is painful and it exposes the host to infections as their body will not be able to keep up with the constant skin fissuring. In severe exposure cases those exposed may die from blood loss organ failure as the Talosine growths spread and begin to extract mineral nutrients from the individual. An isolated incident happened aboard the resource extraction vessel the Southward cross where the entire crew suffered extreme exposure to the then unknown material and were fed upon so rapidly they could not put out a distress signal. The vessel continued onwards to its next destination thanks to the autopilot and was boarded there when it failed to respond to hails. Thankfully the boarding team was wearing full EVA equipment as they found that Talosine crystal growths covered almost 70% of the surface of the interior habitation areas and all that was left of the crew was small amounts of calcium and carbon, the two things Talosine seems not to be able to metabolize. Due to this incident, Talosine is considered a class three hazardous material and it’s harvesting and use is strictly regulated. Fortunately, it turns out that high potency medial-grade charcoal can neutralize it in the body allowing an afflicted individual to naturally pass neutralized Talosine in the bodily wastes, though obviously this is not exactly a pleasant experience. In terms of usage, Talosine is very useful in increasing the efficiency of matter-antimatter reactions in the Dominion’s AMP-anti-shipping missiles as it can delay the interaction of plasma and anti-plasma long enough for the missile to reach its target. The Dominion military uses other methods to keep the active agents of their point defense ASM missiles separate as there simply is not enough Talosine mined to do it’s hazards to equip the large number of point defense missiles used by the military’s warships. Gelled Talosine when used as part of a shock absorption system demonstrates properties similar to Oobleck which makes it useful in damage mitigation systems for starships.

Sebbitrium is refined from Rhemonic ore, which is harvested from one of several failed gas giants in the Awasa sector of Dominion territory. By itself Sebbitrium is a fairly heavy metal, with a dark grey-green coloration. It is non-magnetic and, non-conductive to electricity and in nearly pure forms it is used in power system insulators and as thermal shielding on ‘hot’ fusion reactors and fission power systems. Interestingly, pure Sebbitrium cannot be irradiated, yet resulting heat from a fission reaction can melt Sebbitrium which is why it was originally considered as a denser non-toxic form of lead by Dominion metallurgists early on. In the last thirty years however Sebittrium has been used as a material weight reduction agent in alloys as it rearranges the molecular structure of the common construction metals in just such a way as to reduce material weight an average of 20% while improving tensile strength by 5%. When paired with Ntulawii, Titanium, Uwensin, Gallentyne, and Arasatine the resulting alloy is often called Galactinum, though for note this name refers to a series of eight alloys with differing formulations of the aforementioned materials.
-Atomic Number: 137

Ntulawii is typically harvested from the ejecta of type VIII chemically peculiar stars that for one reason or another have failed during their main phase or that destabilized early in their life cycle for reasons unknown. Thus far the only known example of a class VIII is found in a cluster of three stars in the Banya Sector of Dominion territory. For note the stars in this case were the center of a trinary solar system where the worlds that orbited these stars have been locked in a geomorteus or geoinactive states and possess reducing atmospheres which make them uninhabitable and dangerous to mine for resources. Ntulawii mining is a highly dangerous operation because specially modified mining vessels need to get fairly close to the trinary stars to scoop up the ejected particles in a sort of end-run maneuver at moderate sub-light speed to avoid being directly hit by an ejected particle stream. In industrial usage Ntulawii is used as a strengthening agent in silicate glass products that are expected to experience vibration, and high pressure such as in inspection windows and on submersible vehicles. The military makes use of Ntulawii as part of Galactinum alloy where it adds a small amount of material resilience to kinetic stresses but also allows the effects of the sensor scattering composites in Dominion military assets to pass through the outer layers of armor unimpeded.

Sulactinite is one of the most important materials mined and refined by the Dominion because in its refined form it has effectively replaced the varied forms of hydrogen as a fuel source in fusion reactions for the dominion’s military and government assets. In its natural state with no impurities Sulactinite is a disordered hyperuniformity, in that it is a type of liquid with crystalline properties. In addition to its non-Newtonian nature, refined Sulactinite is readily manipulated in a magnetic field to a point that any fusion system designed to use it has to devote far less energy to its confinement fields however, this also means that the system has to devote more tonnage to shielding. By itself however Sulactinite is largely inert, which is fortunate because when in transport no special temperature or handling requirements are needed. However, before it is used as fuel a small amount of Cordolenite-based emulsifier is added which increases the reactivity of the compound and renders it into a fuel that when utilized in an ambient temperature fusion reaction yields between ten and fifteen times the energy of any hydrogen based fusion reaction. Despite the advantages of Sulactinite, hydrogen is still the most abundant element in the known galaxy and still relatively cheap to harvest from varied sources. It is due to this one fact that in gelled form both deuterium and protium are still used in fusion reactors on the civilian market.

Uwensin is mined from Strömgren ore which is found on rouge planets or planetoids of geoplastic or geometallic composition that have been trapped or shattered inside a Strömgren sphere. Such occurrences are believed to be incredibly rare since only one such event has been documented in the Adirgraat sector of Dominion space. At the time of the discovery the Mineral prospectors responsible for initially documenting the occurrence commented; ‘..and then there it was, it looked like some cosmic being or deity had decided to play a game of marbles using planets as the stand in for mere glass marbles.’ Uwensin is a critical component in the manufacture of Galactinum alloys and in military use it has effectively replaced Iron because far less of it is needed to create the same level of structural strength and it is non-magnetic. Civilian construction however still uses iron-based steels for construction.

-Atomic Mass: 1,057
Ukharii, is mined from a Cthonian planet in the Voi Sector of Dominion space. The planet it comes from is called Graz, and it like the other six planets in the solar system are only suitable for relatively short-lived mining operations because the planet’s unstable orbit virtually guarantees it will be consumed by the nearby star in a few hundred years or less. The remaining atmosphere of Graz is largely composed of hydrogen and helium and the surface temperatures on the side of the planet that faces the sun can reach 800 degrees Celsius, since there is very little atmosphere none of the heat is retained and the ‘night’ temperatures can drop to 260 degrees Celsius. The original reason the Dominion decided to mine the world was for it’s incredibly rich deposits of iron, deuterium and diamonds. The discovery of a new element that had the ability of boosting the anti-corrosive properties of common corrosion resistant materials by roughly 30-43% only increased the drive to strip mine the already doomed planet. Since the world had no detectable life forms and it was going to be destroyed by the nearby star there was no ethical issue. Later on, the one property for which Ukharii was famed was discovered, this material was found to impart resistance (in alloys) to the thermal and corrosive properties of plasma. This feature alone made it the natural choice for containment apparatus in the Dominion’s Anti-plasma/Plasma (AMP) missile technology as other materials could never quite keep the two catalysts apart resulting in sometimes disastrous pre-detonation of warheads.

Nostromite in its native form is best described as an irrational-solid as it has qualities of a super-solid state of matter when subjected to the specific gravitational forces as well as Theta particle radiation. Due to the unique nature of Nostromite, it is difficult to contain and harvest in its natural state however what relatively small amounts are harvested can then be molecularly reconfigured into a more stable but liquid form by using Cordolenite and strong pulses of Theta wave radiation along with a strong gravitational shear (to remove impurities) to produce what Dominion scientists call Nostromite-Beta. This form of Nostromite is generally used as an extreme duration industrial lubricant for any starship component that is expected to be continually exposed to radiation, the vacuum of space and constant and extreme contraction and expansion cycles. The most common use of Nostromite-Beta is in the lubrication of moving parts in Dominion-made Hyperfield generator components and in the few moving parts of an Ambient Temperature Fusion reactor. Because of the difficulty in harvesting and refining Nostromite, and the fact that it cannot be molecularly reproduced in a laboratory elemental Nostromite is one of the most heavily regulated materials in the Dominion. This is not for a lack of trying as molecular synthesis methods have only produced a far lower quality material officially known as Nostromite-delta or ‘Fool’s Oil’ which has none of the advantageous properties of the beta version.

Hitthonnite is one of a few gasses that are considered extensions of the known noble gasses due it having similar properties of being colorless and odorless yet due to its molecular complexity being surprisingly dense for a gas. Generally speaking Hitthonnite is a atmospheric gas found on Class B (Geomorteus), Class N (reducing atmosphere), Class S (super gas giants) type planets though it is also very rarely found on Class O Pelagic worlds as a form of condensate at or near the bottom of a pelagic world’s deep oceans. With that in mind it is somewhat difficult to harvest, purify and package Hitthonnite for use in general however only very small amounts of it are needed in general. The primary use for Hitthonite is in lighting, as it produces more illumination when an electrical current is applied to it than the known noble gasses are capable of. An additional advantage to using Hitthonite instead of xenon or a similar noble gas is that it effectively replicates more of the natural sunlight spectrum and produces little or no heat. This is incredibly useful on starships, in the lab and in green house agriculture. The latter use is very much of note because Hitthonite revolutionized the use of botany vessels by simply reducing the cost of operating such vessels and increasing the quality of yields from such vessels. In military use because Hitthonite is inert and because it does not produce any light until an electrical current is applied it is often used as the active medium in targeting lasers because it does not produce a beam that is on the visible spectrum yet can be used for guided strikes.

Commonly called Rochan Crystal in the Dominion, this material is a stable bland material that has a crystalline lattice that makes it more durable than the highest quality of ferrous material impregnated concrete. In its native state Lithon is a drab dark grey to black colored material with a slight lister that roughly resembles a shinier Basalt. In the early decades of the Dominion’s establishment Lithon was used commonly as a construction material in lieu of fabricated and fired stoneware due to its abundance. However, it was discovered about forty years ago that Lithon that was subjected to chemical bath while under an intense magnetic field rearranged it’s crystalline lattice to produce the Rochan crystals that revolutionized the technology of molecular wiring and made dominion vessels immune to most forms of electron disruption. It is because of this fact that, the method to convert Lithon is a state guarded secret and the Dominion does not trade the methods to make molecular wiring technology of the converted Lithon to foreign powers. It should be noted here that Lithon once converted to Rochan takes on a high luster crystalline form that can range from a very dark purple to obsidian like black with tiny flecks caused by impurities. The highest quality Rochan crystal for use in molecular wiring is described as resembling an evening sky, with visible impurities or flecks. Over time if left unused in its converted state Rochan will begin to accrue flecks as contact with air will introduce impurities eventually turning a sickly yellow green and becoming highly fragile and prone to spontaneous explosive shattering. Only the inclusion of Dataurium in the molecular wiring arrests this effect though truthfully as of this writing the answer for why this works is elusive.

Teuparium is non-Newtonian fluid that can only be mined from class U ultra-gas giants that have a high concentration of Tseonite in their upper atmospheric layers and a nearly horizontally aligned axis. Teuparium is considered an extragalactic noble gas as it demonstrates properties similar to krypton and xenon under very specific circumstances. Where it is present in a class U gas giant it is responsible for the very dramatic ionic flashes of ‘lightening’ in the atmosphere. In common use, it has only been found to be medically useful for neutralizing radiation poisoning when inhaled in a diluted form relative to the severity of the exposure. In this role, it is effectively a more potent Prussian blue treatment however over application of it can bring about medical side effects such as it forming crystals in the blood stream due to interaction with the ferrous components in blood cells which the body attempts to pass through he urinary tract. In the best-case scenario of an over dose the patient will simply have urine that changes colors at worse there is severe kidney and bladder damage as the formed crystals damage mucous linings during their exit from the body. Teuparium is commonly used to treat non-necrosing exposure to Manaetronium and in stronger concentrations to slow or halt up to stage III exposure.

Cordolenite is a solid metallic element that has some properties similar to the heavy metals of the old periodic table but is very soft if not outright brittle depending on its relative purity. In its absolute purest form Cordolenite is softer than lead rating 1.03 on the Mohs hardness scale, with upwards of 50% naturally occurring impurities Cordolenite becomes very brittle to the point that rough handling can cause it to shatter. In appearance Cordolenite has a whitish-silver coloration and tends to form irregular cylindrical nodes that are part of winding veins within or near deposits of Sedrinite. At a glance this would make Cordolenite near worthless except for ballast but Cordolenite in it’s pure form when allowed with other materials has a peculiar molecular habit of reinforcing other molecular substances bringing them closer to one of the primary Newtonian states of matter. In the case of its use with Nostromite it stabilizes the molecular structure and makes it act both chemically and molecularly like a normal liquid. In the case of Sulactinite, Cordolenite fills in certain molecular bonds to make Sulactinite reactive as a fuel. Because of its transformative properties some in the scientific community have taken to calling Cordolenite the ultimate catalyst because by itself it’s not particularly useful but when combined with a number of other elements it almost always improves the other element’s usefulness.
Pyril (Risallan Pyrite) [Prp]
-Atomic Number: 522
-Atomic Mass: 1085
Pyril is a naturally occurring compound that is only found on a planetoid orbiting the gas giant Risallas VII. No other sources of the material have been found thus far. Originally due to its resemblance to Iron pyrite albeit with a color resembling scorched bronze Pyril was originally called Risallan Pyrite and it was at first thought to have very little use; it’s density made mining for other materials difficult and it was the source of many prospector’s agitation. However, it’s labelling as useless ended when one research scientist at the University of New Magoro was accidentally delivered a shipment of powdered Risallan Pyrite rather than the Cordolenite she had ordered. Since the delivery was signed for and was opened there was no way to send the pyrite back so the scientist and her team tried a few experiments with the inert pyrite to see if perhaps they could discover something no one else had. The researchers would soon find out that mixtures combining Dataurium and Nostromite with Risallan Pyrite had a scattering effect on the lab’s chemical and molecular sensor equipment. Later tests found that the mixture in zero gravity could be woven and compressed into plates that could be used to disperse the energy of a sensor just enough that no useful data could be gleaned and yet it was not a stealth type effect which would fit the military cultural disdain for stealth attacks. This discovery would lead to the retrofitting of all military vessels with sensor scattering hull composites by 2112 and the government operated trade convoy system would finish retrofitting it by 2126 AEC. The invention of the scattering composite effectively gave the dominion the upper hand in a lot of engagements after this simply because the dominion could attack a target at extended range and yet the target could not effectively return fire at the same ranges.
