A horacalcum lattice incorporated into a starship’s defensive countermeasures creates a field of space-time fluctuation that slows larger incoming projectiles. The speed of any tracking weapon fired at the starship is reduced by 25% (round down the final speed).

By bending space around a vessel in subtle ways, horacalcum thrusters propel a starship at incredible speeds and enable improbable maneuvers. Horacalcum increases the maximum speed of any thrusters by 1 and reduces a starship’s Piloting check penalty based on its maximum speed by 1 (minimum +0). Active horacalcum thrusters glow with a telltale orange hue.
