The Conversion Matrix
Prototype Conversion Matrix undergoing testing in Pluto orbit.

   

   

   

You can find a technical description of the device's function and role in message set V^M-55.  For Terra, for Humanity!

WOW!!! So what your saying is that the conversion matrix is half the Apoc!?
Jeeez
But, could you clarify that transmission in ENGLISH for the other people who don't understand. But, if I'm right the Conversion Matrix generates a huge amount of power that can rip a ships' molecules apart, shielding dosen't help the ship, and it generates huge radiation emissions.

Yep, that's it in a nutshell.

Styxx's original concept was to have it simply convert matter into energy.  Of course, I took a look at that and basically said 'that's a ****LOAD of energy' if you, say....vape a Sathanas.  More than enough to explosively destroy the Earth.  So I dove into my knowledge of astrophysics and particle physics and came up with something that had a comparable effect without all that excess energy to deal with. (in the original configuration, the Apoc would emit more energy than the sun when it used the C-M)

Dumbass, it's the conversion matrix.

It won´t win any battle, tho.... something you should consider: recharging rate.
Shrike said it´ll use ****loads (   ) of energy. Well, tho the Apoc has a pretty cool reactor, it can´t fire the CM every 2 seconds, y´know  
Here comes my sig... oh finished :D

 
would be pretty pointless if it could

Actually, the recharging rate is not much of a problem, since it actually acquires energy for the reactor instead of spending it, after the initial activation charge. But it has a few other problems that might prevent it's use - most of them are described on the messages, you just have to read carefully.

I'll bet if you disable the spinning rods, the ship is useless
