  • Broken, nonoperational artifacts have been recovered with advanced technologies that might have been ansibles...

Instantaneous communication would revolutionize interstellar society...

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No known operational artifacts of this type have ever been discovered within Charted Space.
