Thorium Reactor

The Thorium Reactor is an outfit that provides a large, stable energy source for hyperspace travel. It is superior to the standard Fission Reactor, but much more expensive. Thorium reactors are the main powerplant for most Federation capital ships.


If you have any gameplay tips, hints, or background information relevant to this topic, please post them here.

You must be on very cozy terms with Federation authorities to purchase this outfit legally. Beware the cheap knockoffs sold by some unscrupulous outfitters; these have a habit of melting down with very little notice.

Thorium Reactors cost 4,000,000 credits. They consume 8 tons of weapon space and grant an additional unit of fuel every 10 frames. A ship may be outfitted with up to 2 Thorium Reactors. A Thorium Reactor also increases the speed and acceleration of the ship by 10 and 15 units, respectively. They can be found on Rauther in the Rautherion system, but only rarely.
