* plasma emmiters are the metallic brown boxes with "scoops" pointing outwards.
[OOC] Can you explain the significance of the plasma emitters?

Finding out the manufacturing secrets is some else's job, and at this point, the Malu have another drive in service, at least for imperial craft rather than the stuff versatile nations buy. Right now the drive is being slowly spun as part of a maintenance test.

Are there any places Day will prompt Pothi to show him?
"Thanks for the tour, now I guess I better get a good look at the drives. Any quirks of them from your last service onboard I should know about?"
