The contemporary holo crystals of TL:13-15 Charted Space are vastly superior to the silicon electronics used by TL:7-9 societies. However, science and science fiction have long predicted a hypothetically perfect memory storage device known as computronium, with near unlimited storage space and capabilities to process calculations in the many trillions per yoctosecond.
No information yet available.
No known science can produce such a substance... yet. Some theories hypothesize that such material can only be artificially synthesized or found in the cores of neutron stars or black holes. Others have supposed that it may exist in jump space. Another theory lends that a cold, degenerate star could be used in this manner.
