Definitions[ edit ] "One of the few things on which all scholars agree concerning New Age is that it is difficult to define. Often, the definition given actually reflects the background of the scholar giving the definition.
Mass Relays Mass relays are feats of Prothean engineering advanced far beyond the technology of any living species.
They are enormous structures scattered throughout the stars, and can create corridors of virtually mass-free space allowing instantaneous transit between locations separated by years or even centuries of travel using conventional FTL drives.
Primary mass relays can propel ships thousands of light years, often from one spiral arm of the galaxy to another. However, they have fixed one-to-one connections: Secondary relays can only propel ships a few hundred light years, however they are omnidirectional: There are many dormant primary relays whose corresponding twins have not yet been located.
These are left inactive until their partner is charted, as established civilizations are unwilling to blindly open a passage that might connect them to a hostile species.
Mass Effect 3 Mass Relays Once believed to be of Prothean origin, mass relays were in fact created by the Reapers using technology far beyond that of other living species. The enormous structures, scattered throughout the stars, create corridors of virtually mass-free space.
This allows instantaneous transit between locations normally separated by years or even centuries using conventional FTL drives. Primary mass relays can propel ships thousands of light-years. The flight path, however, is fixed to a single relay elsewhere in the galaxy. By contrast, secondary relays, while only capable of propelling ships a few hundred light-years, can reach any other relay within their limited range.
Many primary relays lie dormant, their destinations not yet known. These relays are often left inactive on purpose, as established civilizations are unwilling to blindly open a passage that might connect them to a new, hostile species.
The Reapers do not share the same concern, and freely use the dormant relays. It combines several useful applications: Once applied, the gel is designed to grip tight to flesh until subjected to a frequency of ultrasound.
It is sealable against liquids--most notably blood--as well as contaminants and gases. The gel is a genetically engineered bioplasm created by the Sirta Foundation, a medical technology megacorp based on Earth.
Technically, medi-gel violates Council laws against genetic engineering, but so far, it has proved far too useful to ban. Omni-tool Omni-tools are handheld devices that combine a computer microframe, sensor analysis pack, and minifacturing fabricator.
Versatile and reliable, an omni-tool can be used to analyze and adjust the functionality of most standard equipment, including weapons and armorfrom a distance. The fabrication module can rapidly assemble small three-dimensional objects from common, reusable industrial plastics, ceramics, and light alloys.
This allows for field repairs and modifications to most standard items, as well as the reuse of salvaged equipment. Omni-tools are standard issue for soldiers and first-in colonists. The Crucible The Mars Archives describe a superweapon that the Alliance has named the Cruciblewhich exploits the technology of mass effect relays.
Beyond the basic principles, however, researchers know little about how the weapon actually works. One popular theory suggests that since relays can transfer matter and energy across the galaxy with little regard for distance, it may be possible to create a weapon for which range is barely a factor.
Duplicating the advanced science used to build the relays has proven difficult, however.New Age is a term applied to a range of spiritual or religious beliefs and practices that developed in Western nations during the s.
Precise scholarly definitions of the New Age differ in their emphasis, largely as a result of its highly eclectic structure. Although analytically often considered to be religious, those involved in it typically prefer the designation of spiritual or Mind.
