A massive hard-suit made by the Exploriens for long-term deep space and hostile environment exploration.
About this creation
Following the trail of alien fossils led the Exploriens Crew deep into dangerous regions. They could have turned back, but the tantalizing promise of intact alien machinery drew them onward. The Star-Diver was developed for solo prospectors, with all the tools needed to crack the mysteries of the universe. Need to enter a derelict ship - got you covered. Need access to an alien quantum mainframe? No problemo. Need to get the heck out right frigging now? Also not a problem if you're wearing the Star-Diver powered armor.
4th wall: Okay, I know this one's kinda ridiculous, but I'm still calling it a hard suit. My rule - the legs are each independently attached to the minifig's legs, and her hip joints act as the suit's hip joints.
Equipment Review Right arm is equipped with a tri-spectral analyzer, able to to deep-scan all known alien data storage devices even from a great distance, or through several intervening layers of stone of metal. It may look like a weapon, but it certainly is not. Exploriens are explorers only, and the Star Diver is in no way equipped for combat.
WARNING: Independent analyses inddicat ethe possibility that, if power is increased enough and all three spectral analyzers are activated in unison, constructive interference may result in a high-velocity wavefront of hyperactive ions capable of grievously damaging the target sample, even from a great distance. Exercise extreme caution.
Left arm - High-gain tight-focus communications laser. Operating deep un uncharted territory, often alone, the Star Diver pilots need to carry their own means of securely beaming data back home. And so the suit has its own tight-beam laser emitter, able to send secure, coded data pulses across the cosmos.
WARNING: As with all tight-beam communications, users must consult local space traffic bulletins and be mindful of their immediate environment before sending a burst. DO NOT adjust the frequency, range or power settings out of the communications burst setting range.
Examining alien life.
Flight! The star diver has a very sophisticated kinetic impeller system,with the primary field manipulator on the back, and secondary emitters on the shoulders and legs. It can navigate void, torrential weather and even under water all equally well.
Though the suit has no trans-L capabilities of its own, the new kinetic impeller system is able sustain speeds of nearly .75c, making in-system travel a reality for the Star-Diver.
Handheld equipment for Star-Diver pilots usually includes tools for accessing long-dormant alien data systems - whether to open doors or browse archival mainframes. This is not an easy feat, since the ancient aliens in 3- 4- and sometimes even 7-digit coding languages (all now dead) and the hardware itself is usually corroded by time, powerless and as likely to be made out of solid-fluxed crystalline pseudo-matter as it is to be made out of silicon circuits.
Left hand - Indirect Current Inducer. Jokingly called a hacker-ray, this divice is able to map out circuits and induce power flow without physical contact.
Right hand - Control center for the ICI. Long-dormant geriatric computer systems are usually full of buggy, twitched-out security systems and malware, so the ICI is controlled through an isolated module. Data systems on the Star-Diver never fully engage with unknown data systems until they are deemed safe.
WARNING - The ICI system is intended for exploration and scientific inquiry only. Any breech of the Explorien code of ethics will be met with swift disciline. No not, EVER, under any circumstances, let an ICI system fall into Spyrius hands.
Quite Handy Scanners and long-range comm lasers are nice, but sometimes an explorer has to get her hands dirty - excavating, clearing rubble, working repairs, etc. Fortunately, the Star-Diver has hands to get dirty for you - big hands, multi-jointed, able to manipulate fine tools or move heaps of rubble.
In the event that egress into a dormant alien structure is not possible through existing entry points, entry points can easily be made with a pair of disentegration scalpels- standard on all Star-Diver models. Comprised of interlocked nano-fields, these blades sever the bonds between individual atoms, ripping any material down to dust and vapor.
WARNING - as with any bladed tool, extreme caution must be used when operating the disintegration scalpels. Unlike any other bladed tool, no material has been found that offers ANY resistance to this kind of blade.
