Cryo-Vaults Pow: 2 Space: 2
This vessel contains extensive cryo-vaults, which can store additional crew or passengers beyond the standard capacity of the ship. Row upon row of frozen bodies line the crypts, giving the ship the impression of a flying tomb. The crew often spins tales about what occurs in the cryo-vaults, and are innately distrustful of anyone who is woken from them.
Frozen Passengers: When working towards a Trade, Creed, or Military objective, the players may gain an extra 50 Achievement Points towards completing that objective.
Sleeper Crew: Increase Crew Population permanently by 3.
Void Tomb: Reduce Crew Morale permanently by 2.

This device is unbelievably small, given its purpose, or can be folded to fit in places one would not expect to look. Though the techno-arcane rites used to miniaturize its internal workings are long-lost, it remains as an impressive testament to the miraculous knowledge of the Dark Age of Technology.
Ship Component: Its Space requirement is reduced by 4 (to a minimum of 1 if it is Internal or 0 if it is External).

The component is so widely scattered with several fail safes that it cannot be targeted by macrobattery or lance weapons. Only way to attack the component is through particular Boarding Actions but distributed component requires additional +3 DoS to become destroyed.

While none can say why its creators ornamented this device so noticeably, it makes an undeniable impression upon any who see it, reminding them why the Dark Age of Technology is so fabled and so feared.
Ship Component: An ancient and overwhelming testament to ages long past and knowledge long forgotten, this Component grants the vessel’s commanders a +10 bonus to all Intimidate and Command Tests made aboard a vessel upon which it has been installed.

The manufacture of this device was so utterly precise that many users find its exactness disconcerting until they grow used to the greater level of meticulousness in craftsmanship that it displays.
Ship Component: This Component is so finely honed that it draws less power than it might otherwise, takes up a minimum of space, and often makes maintenance unnecessary. Decrease its Size and Power Requirements by 1 (to a minimum of 0). Its presence increases the ship’s Morale by 1, as ratings occasionally find their assigned toil far less onerous than expected.
