Hidden technologies are Research technologies that cannot be unlocked via normal means but must be unlocked by achieving a Major Success in the B.E.P.I.S. chamber.

Technologies

Specialized Engineering

"Conventional wisdom has deemed these engineering products 'technically' safe, but far too dangerous to traditionally condone."

Tinker's Gloves
Tinker's Gloves
Found in: Engineering Techfab after research
Used for: Improving construction speed by approx 1/3 (needs verification)
Strategy: Rapidly rebuilding engineering after a supermatter delamination, or showing off in an epic build-off.
Description
These overdesigned engineering gloves have automated construction subrutines dialed in, allowing for faster construction while worn.

CAUTION: NOT INSULATED.

Lava-Resistant Metal Rods
Lava-Resistant Metal Rods
Found in: Any Techfab after research
Used for: Constructing on lava
Description
Treated, specialized metal rods. When exposed to the vaccum of space their coating breaks off, but they can hold up against the extreme heat of active lava.


Australicus Security Protocols

"It is said that security in the Australicus sector is tight, so we took some pointers from their equipment. Thankfully, our sector lacks any sign of these, 'dropbears'."

Outback Firing Pin
Outback Firing Pin
Found in: Security Techfab after research
Used for: Preventing weapon discharges while on the station.
Strategy: Give these to cargo to let them use weapons in lavaland without risking the station.
Description
A firing pin used by the austrailian defence force, retrofit to prevent weapon discharge on the station.

OZtek Boomerang
OZtek Boomerang
Found in: Security Techfab after research
Used for: When provided with a power cell and turned on, stuns anybody it hits and returns to the thrower.
Strategy: Use for a particularily interesting way to gear your security officers.
Description
A device invented in 2486 for the great Space Emu War by the confederacy of Australicus, these high-tech boomerangs also work exeptionally well at stunning crewmembers.

Just be careful to catch it when thrown!

Illumination Applications

"Applications of lighting and vision technology not originally thought to be commercially viable."

Workplace-Ready Firefighter Helmet
Workplace-Ready Firefighter Helmet
Found in: All Techfab's once researched
Used for: Adding a light to firefighter Helmet
Strategy: A Brilliant way to be robust!
Description
By applying state of the art lighting technology to a fire helmet, and using photo-chemical hardening methods, this hardhat will protect you from robust workplace hazards.

Mini Rapid Light Device
Mini Rapid Light Device
Found in: Cargo & Engineering Techfab's once researched
Used for: Rapid light construction.
Description
A device used to rapidly provide lighting sources to an area. Reload with metal, plasteel, glass or compressed matter cartridges.

The Mini Rapid Light Device (MRLD) has three functions:

  1. Light Launcher: Shoots a lit glowstick that lies on the floor and can be picked up or dragged.
  2. Deconstruct: Deconstructs any light within eyesight even through windows.
  3. Permanent Light Construction: Constructs lights anywhere within eyesight, even through windows. When used on a wall it will create a wall light fixture, when used on the floor it will create a floor light.

Nanite Replication Protocols

"Advanced behaviors that allow nanites to exploit certain circumstances to replicate faster."

Unlocks Specialized replication Protocols For Nanites.

Advanced Grapple Technology

"Nanotrasen would like to remind its researching staff that it is never acceptable to "glomp" your coworkers, and further "scientific trials" on the subject will no longer be accepted in its academic journals."

Gives access to the Dolphin and Rocket Tackle Gloves, for advanced soaring.

Mauna Mug

"A bored scientist was thinking to himself for very long... and then realized his coffee got cold! He made this invention to solve this extreme problem.

Mauna Mug
Mauna Mug
Found in: Any techfab after research
Used for: Heating Drinks in Style
Description
A drink served in a classy mug. Now with built-in heating! The mauna mug looks pretty robust! It'd probably be able to withstand acid!

Capable of reaching heats up to 600K, can see current temperature and charge when examined.


Enhanced Interrogation Technology

"By cross-referencing several declassified documents from past dictatorial regimes, we were able to develop an incredibly effective interrogation device. Elical concerns about loss of free will do not apply to criminals, according to galactic law."

Enhanced Interrogation Chamber (Machine design)
Enhanced Interrogation Chamber (Machine design)
Found in: Security techfab once researched.
Used for: Hypnotising Crew Members
Description
The Enhanced Interrogation Chamber is designed to induce a deep-rooted trance trigger into the subject. Once the procedure is complete, by using the implanted trigger phrase, the authorities are able to ensure immediate and complete obedience and truthfulness.

Enhanced Wheel Applications

"Adding wheels to things can lead to extremely benificial outcomes."

Rolly Poly
Rolly Poly
Found in: Any techfab after research
Used for: Anything and Everthing mobile.
Description
An NT brand "Rolly Poly" rolling table. It can and will move.

Advanced Sticky Technology

"Taking a good joke too far? Nonsense!"

Super Sticky Tape
Super Sticky Tape
Found in: Service Techfab once researched.
Used for: Making things sticky to throw at people.
Strategy: 1. Wrap object in sticky tape

2. Throw object at crewmember or alien. 3. ??? 4. Profit?

Description
Quite possibly the most mischevious substance in the galaxy. Use with extreme lack of caution.

Objects wrapped in sticky tape and thrown at others will stick to them without warning them. They will only notice upon closer examination of themselves.

Pointy Tape
Pointy Tape
Found in: Service Techfab once researched.
Used for: Making things pointy and sharp.
Strategy: Wrap an object in pointy tape, then throw at someone with harm intent to embed it in them.
Description
Used for sticking to things for sticking said things inside people.

Objects stuck into people will fall out after a short amount of time.
