Transpex is a standard strong transparent material with a range of uses from mere portholes to substantial transparent sections of starship hulls.

Its transparency can be adjusted to darken (near instantaneously) in response to sudden brightness; in dark mode, the material is opaque. Transpex is suitable as a display screen or media on which are overlayed infographics, communications, images, and instrument displays.

Transpex is inferior to hullmetal or hull armor. A typical installation includes external shutters that provide suitable armor protection.
