The empire takes its technology very seriously, much of its economy and dedicated to the technology development sector occupying the second place in the imperial economy after only the military sector. In addition to the empire developing a technology derived from the technologies of precursor civilizations, the empire was then able to reverse-engineer in various precursor technology. This allowed the Empire to develop various technologies such as solar fusion reactors, powerful particle beam weapon, and powerful phaser shield generators. The hull of Gatlantian ships is made of Trilitium-steel, a strong and malleable metallic alloy. Trilitium is stronger than titanium and steel, found mainly in various types of celestial bodies but at great depths.
The precursor technology is very advanced and probably belonged to a 3rd scale civilization and is still being extensively studied by the empire. Some precursor artifacts were known to be much older than most civilizations. by several million years. The Precursors also left a small number of mysterious artifacts in deep space known. across the empire as pillars, it was probably some kind of power generator as they released large amounts of energy and radiation. They were generally considered unstable and dangerous. Gatlantian scientists recorded strange phenomena near the pillars, they released large pulses of energy, which would fry any approaching machine.

Particle beam weapons
They are a family of advanced technology energy beam weapons. The empire's particle weapons use a high-energy beam of atomic or subatomic particles to damage the target, disrupting its atomic/ molecular structure, there are more powerfull models than neutral particle arrays such as the Spinal mounted particle beam, which is a unique gigantic particle emitter equipped mainly in the artillery cruisers, battlecruisers, battleships and the large 30km dreadnoughts.
A particle beam array was a weapon composed of a linear array of numerous emitters of neutral particles located in strategic areas of an imperial warship or battle station. During the firing sequence of some arrays mounted on imperial warships, the particle energies would travel along the range of the emitter and converge in the best position for firing, but warships can fire their emitters in dispersion mode, firing more than an emitter at the same time at higher firing rate. The Empire also uses Particle Guns in the Imperial Army such as the M90-A Particle Assault Rifle is an energy weapon that has a high firing rate this battery powered weapon fires ionized particles at its targets instead of accelerating small projectiles.That weapon is used by the legionaries and also by the praetorians of the imperial guard.
A long time ago, the empire stopped using kinetic weapons in the imperial army, with great exceptions as they are still used by the army's MBTs, but kinetic weapons were not totally abandoned, still being widely used in the imperial navy, being equipped on the large warships and the empire will continue to invest in the development of increasingly modern and powerful coilguns.
The Magnetic Acceleration Cannon also called by the name of Gauss or Gauss Driver, also known as MAC, is the most powerful kinetic weapon available to the imperial navy. The MAC is the only non-energy weapon. This weapon consists of a giant cannon that fires a massive metallic projectile. To do this, it uses a linear system of magnetic fields, firing the projectile at absurd speeds and producing a great amount of kinetic energy. The fired projectile can reach incredible speeds of 30,000 km per second, approximately 20% of light speed. This weapon can also be equipped in smaller and less powerful versions such as the mass driver. The mass driver repeater is mounted on small and medium turrets placed in the leteral in the warships of the imperial navy, they have a very fast firing rate, firing 40 projectiles in 60 seconds. If the enemy ship gets too close, these mass drivers are the last line of defense for the warship used for short-range combat, it fires a 3-meter projectile, having the ability to shoot down shield.
Mass driver repeaters: Are kinetic weapons equipped in all Imperial Navy warships for medium and short-range combat. The mass driver's operating principle is essentially the same as a spine-mounted railgun, which magnetically accelerates a projectile at extremely high speeds. All existing mass drivers use energized electromagnetic coils and electromagnets, these weapons are mounted on double and quadruple batteries along the leteral of an imperial warship.
Plasma weapons are more robust and much more effective than laser-based weapons. They use an energy cell to supply energy to the internal components, these weapons use hydrogen as a fuel source, this fuel is then boiled and contained within a magnetic field until it changes from a cold liquid to an ionized gas. The plasma launchers used by the Imperial Navy ships are plasma-based explosive launchers, it fires a sequence of super-explosive, plasma projectiles. The Heavy plasma launcher (equiped in the capital ships) is also capable of overheating if its rate of fire is not controlled. The soldiers of the imperial army also have plasma swords, perhaps the most deadly weapon available to the imperial army, used mainly if the enemy gets too close.
The empire also uses plasma weapons on its main warships this weapon is called plasma turret. The Plasma turrets are very common weapons equipped in every warship of the imperial navy with the exception of fighters. The plama within the cannon of this turret is stabilized using magnetic fields. Without the field, the plasma dissipates too quickly for real use. The field controls and contains the plasma, without interfering with the shot, when fired, the turret fires a plasma ball that has a high proportion of damage towards its target.
ARMOR AND SHIELDS
The defensive system of an imperial warship is divided into 3 lines of defense the Phaser energy shield, the Plasma barrier and finally the Trilitium-steel hull armor.
Phaser Deflector Shield (Active Defence)
Phaser barrier also called Phaser Deflector shields, were a type of force field that surrounds a starship, space station to protect against enemy attacks or space anomalies. These shields create a layer, or layers, of energy distortion forming a kind of particle screen that contains gravitons around the object to be protected. Shield energies can be emitted from a Phaser barrier generator. The Phaser barrier can defend against particle weapon attacks, plasma weapon, kinetic weapons and against other energy weapon attacks however, continuous or extremely powerful Particle Discharges can progressively dissipate the integrity of a shield to the point of failure.
Plasma barrier (Passive Defence)
The shields used by the imperial navy and even civilian ships are divided into two layers, the plasma barrier is the second defense line of a imperial warship, it is a passive defense. Plasma shields, is a type of force field that works on the basis of Plasma. These shields create a layer of high concentration of plasma around the object to be protected. In the ships, the shield contained several sections depending on the size of the ship, neither matter nor highly concentrated energy could normally penetrate an plasma shield. When the shields were energized at a high level, most of the materials or energies that came into contact with the shields were harmlessly diverted. These shields are powered by the highly energized plasma generated by the fusion reactors and the plasma is channeled through plasma conductors and then sent to the shield generators.
Plasma shields are a very simple form of force field and yet are a reliable defensive form that offers protection against various types of weapons. These shields are extremely effective for defending against laser weapons, charged particle beams and opposite plasma munitions,in addition, it is a simple system since it uses fusion energy, it uses plasma that is produced in fusion reactors as energy and if advanced enough can somewhat stop the kinetic energy or at least reduce their impact.
Trilitium-steel is a metal alloy formed essentially by a Trilitium alloy and a Titanium alloy combined with carbon for flexibility it results in a form of heat and shock resistant ceramic/ablative material that is widely used in the imperial military industry they are called Trilitium-Steel. This high-quality metal is used in the manufacture of tanks, power armor, and the hulls of imperial warships, this powerful metal is capable of absorbing and dissipating even the most extreme thermal and directed energy attacks, and conducts many other forms of electromagnetic radiation in order to disperse it over a wide area. This makes Trilitium-Steel especially effective in providing protection against targeted energy, particle weapons and kinetic weapons. It is also used to manufacture light armor for the standard infantry of the Imperial Army's Infantry Division. Vehicle protection ranges from various forms of reactive armor for light to medium vehicles and angular ablative armor for heavier.
Trilitium-steel consists of a Trilitium alloy, a titanium alloy intertwined with carbon nanotubes for strength and flexibility. Over the era of the imperial calendar this metal has been constantly refined and miniaturized to make it stronger than carbon nanotubes and titanium combined.
Trilitium: It is a light, strong, metallic white, lustrous and corrosion resistant transition metal, solid at room temperature. Trilitium is widely used in the industrial sector used to manufacture metal alloys and also the simple Trilitium alloy is commonly used as a strong form of structural support.
