Science Node (10 point Computer)

A Science Node is a computer and a lab full of apparatus, all devoted to a particular field of science. While the exact list of sciences and the functions of the Synthesis System will vary depending on what the system is dedicated to, the general build is always the same. This example is devoted to the Biological Sciences, although it does cover some related fields for when it’s analyzing things with the multiscanner systems.

Computer: 0 Dexterity (-30P), 23 Intelligence (13P), 1 Speed (0P).

(4P) Multiscanner Multipower (20-pt reserve); Extra Time: 5 min., -2; OAF: -1; Focus Mobility: Bulky, -½

  • u-1 Psionic Analysis / Detect Psionic Energies (+6 to PER); Time Required: Half Phase, +0; Range: Touch, +0; Addition (Discriminatory): +5.
  • u-1 Genetic Analysis / Detect Genetic Structures (+6 to PER); Time Required: Half Phase, +0; Range: Touch, +0; Addition (Discriminatory): +5.
  • u-1 Biochemical Analysis / Detect Biochemicals (+6 to PER); Time Required: Half Phase, +0; Range: Touch, +0; Addition (Discriminatory): +5.
  • u-1 Physical Analysis / Detect Physical Structure (+6 to PER); Time Required: Half Phase, +0; Range: Touch, +0; Addition (Discriminatory).
  • u-1 Electron Microscope / Microscopic Vision (×1000000).
  • u-1 N-Ray Vision / X-Ray Scanner.

(4P) Biosynthesis System Multipower (20-pt reserve); Extra Time: 1 hour, -2½; OAF: -1; Focus Mobility: Bulky, -½; The system does need to be plugged into a serious power supply to make this multipower work; simply being on the power grid will not do.

  • u-1 1d6 Biochemical Synthesis / Transform: Stock Chemicals to Biochemicals (Major, Limited Class) (2 End).
  • u-1 1d6 Genetic Manipulator and Genesis Vat / Transform Cell Sample to Desired Organism (Major, Limited Class).This is a small facility, and normally produces eggs, infants, and so on (2 End).
  • u-1 1d6 Genesplicing / Transform for minor “tweaks” to living organisms (Minor, Limited Class) (2 End).
  • u-1 Regeneration Induction (1 BODY/5 min.); Usable By Others: Power Lost, +¼; Usable by Others Number: 8, +¾; Regenerate: Standard, +0.

Computer Powers Elemental Control (1-pt reserve) (1P)

  • a-2 Internet Access / Radio Listen and Transmit; Focus Mobility: Bulky, -½; IIF: -¼; Generic Limitation (Wireless Internet Only.): -½
  • b-2 Absolute Time Sense
  • c-2 Lightning Calculator
  • d-4 Eidetic Memory; Generic Limitation (Only for computer data and programs.): -1
  • e-1 Speed Reading; Generic Limitation (Only for computer data and programs.): -1
