    Transmission via tachyon waves is used galaxy-wide due to its advantages in range and speed over other known methods. Personal comm units generally have a planetary range on their own, but can use ship, satellite, or ground relays to reach across the …

  • Computers

    Personal computing devices with communication, memory, and other capabilities are common. These devices can also connect to local networks to acquire information not stored locally, but this access can be tracked. Non-mobile computers are more capable, …
