Unobtanium is the name given to the strange substance the crew of The Dancing Queen discovered traces of on Nylig. Their initial findings indicated it was the power source for what was once a global computer network.
Though there is evidence to suggest that unobtanium was once abundant on Nylig, it appears that the residents consumed all of it at some point in the distant past.
Further research by Toffee and Professor Kahlil uncovered a method that might replicate the original use. They speculate that, if contained in a sealed system – preferably a tube – and suspended in a specific gaseous compound, collisions of the unobtanium particles could produce energy at a rate and efficiency approaching that of fusion.
