Doubles Fuel Efficiency (after analysed)

* The Thrynn pay 6 times as much as Starport does for artifacts and after the second increase in fuel prices 12 times as much. A good moneymaker near the beginning of the game is to purchase the two artifacts from starport and sell them to the Thynn (the closest ship is at 134,53) for 108 cm of fuel. This profit of 72,000 does require decent engines to get there, but does not require any communication skill.

CRYSTAL CONE Elowan: "Akteron, Gaal, Iridani, and Echt. These are the suns of the four seedlings, a constellation in our demesne oft used as a landmark by our people." (Search Elowan space for a 4-star cluster, found at 165,84 area.)
Elowan: "As our young play often do they sing songs such as this- Someday to the ground will fall, Iridani, Echt, and Gaal. Up they'll grow with bran ches tall, then to Akteron they'll call. And at last it too will fall. The brightest seedling of them all" (Akteron is the brightest star of the group, the only O-class sun)
Mechans: "Institute, based at 75S X 66E on Akteron 6"
Institute Message: "The second device is the crystal cone. This is needed to identify from orbit the location of the control nexus, and is known to be at coordinates 29S X 55W on the first planet in the system 20,198. Unfortunetly this is deep in Uhlek space."
CRYSTAL ORB Institute Message: "the crystal orb, is needed to nullify the defenses of the planet. This is in the possession of the Velox and is known to them as the small egg."

Mechans: somewhere in a nebula in Spemin space is a vast city of the ancients. It is thought to be on the innermost planet of the system
Spemin: "In fact, there is a great city of the ancients in a nebula just outward of our home planet" (56,144)
Location of City: "29N X 13W" - shown on Starflight Starmap or via Red Cylinder

RING DEVICE Found Earth / Hypercube (see above)
Thrynn: "The ring device is a device, of course, invented by the Thrynn but we have lost the secret to its working. It causes continuum fluxes to appear on ones ships screens. One is known to be on northern Mars in the old Earth system."
Mechans: "The Institute has a starflight research station at the center of the north pole on Mars."
ROD DEVICE Mechans: "The entire economy of the empire is based on endurium. When we left, the richest and strongest planet was New Scotland, the second planet in the upspin end of the staff constellation"
