  • [SIZE=11pt]Intent: A minor refinement of canon relativistic shields’ occasional time dilation incidents. It's no longer a bug - now it's a feature.[/SIZE]

  • [SIZE=11pt]Canon Link: [/SIZE][SIZE=11pt]Relativistic Shield[/SIZE]

  • [SIZE=11pt]Manufacturer: [/SIZE][SIZE=11pt]Merrill-Valkner Systems Engineering (MVSE)[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=11pt]Model: Aryzah Relativistic Shield Projector[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=11pt]Affiliation: Closed market (ask first)[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=11pt]Modularity: None[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=11pt]Production: Limited[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=11pt]Material: Steristeel, electronics[/SIZE]
  • [SIZE=11pt]Adjustable relativistic shield[/SIZE]

  • [SIZE=11pt]From the subjective perspective of the ship's crew, time can pass fractionally faster or slower while traveling in hyperspace than it normally would.[/SIZE]

  • [SIZE=11pt]Spill your drink on this thing and your next hyperjump might feel like a month. Play games with one of these in the Chiloon Rift or the Tyus Cluster, and nastier things can happen. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]Every hypercapable ship has a relativistic shield that protects the crew from the radical time dilation effects of hyperspace travel. Damage or malfunction can cause spectacularly odd incidents.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]Named for the Jedi ghost who helped [/SIZE][SIZE=11pt]Kinnin Vo-Shay[/SIZE][SIZE=11pt] escape the time warp of the [/SIZE][SIZE=11pt]Tyus Cluster[/SIZE][SIZE=11pt], the Aryzah may be history's first reliably adjustable relativistic shield.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]The Aryzah includes every possible safety interlock, as you might imagine. Standard settings cap the Aryzah at 20% dilation, though any experienced engineer could override the governor. At a deep level, the field cannot be reconfigured for more than 30% dilation either way, meaning a ten-day hyperjump can feel like no more than thirteen days and no less than seven. (Note that no possible use or misuse of the Aryzah can speed up a ship’s objective hyperspace travel time. The ship would still take ten days to reach its destination so far as the outside galaxy is concerned.)[/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]On your average day, the Aryzah functions as nothing not than a standard relativistic shield.During most journeys, the pilot can leave the Aryzah at its default zero-dilation setting, or maybe dial things down a bit to make time pass more quickly. Where the Aryzah shines, though, is in crisis situations, making it highly suitable for search-and-rescue craft. A subjectively shorter transit time is the next best thing to a medical stasis field. Alternately, the Aryzah can offer a ship's crew a few extra hours to rest and prepare for their immediate future.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=11pt]As with most Merrill-Valkner products, the Aryzah’s console and casing are made of steristeel. It's not the strongest material, but on a tramp freighter, cleanliness can be worth its weight in aurodium.[/SIZE]
