Velariin is a metallic element that is found in the Basilicus Prime galaxy. It has been mined on Telios Prime and other Telian colonies in the Shiss System for more than 83 years. Velariin is a unique material in that it is capable of sustaining the forces of a fusion reaction at room temperature, due to the unique magnetic fields that develop in the material when it is exposed to the fusion reaction. These fields help to contain and concentrate the reaction, increasing both the fusion rate and the total energy output of the reactor. This unique property allowed Telian scientists and engineers to create reaction chambers for small and large fusion reactors that are lined with velariin. This led to tremendous gains in the operating safety of these reactors, to the point that a reactor failure is simply not something that is heard of today.
