Sigma will include a mixed tech feature in the next update patch.

Posted by The_Undying_Nephalim on May 8th, 2011

One the notable features that Fleet Operations introduced was the inclusion of Mixed Tech. Available in multiplayer matches, players that teamed up with different races had access to hybrid technologies and other unique ships developed between both species. Sigma will include a similar system, with tweaks and changes to help add variety. At the moment in Fleet Operations mixed tech comes in the form of ships with bonuses or added special weapons. In Sigma the hybrid technology can be found in many more areas, including upgrades that improve system performance, alter the rate of fire of ships, and of course grant access to unique ships like in Fleet Operations. Each race prefers to adapt the technologies of their allies differently. For instance the aggressive Zevestivan prefer to take the best weapons of their comrades and slap them unto the hulls of their ships. The V.R.A. on the other hand prefer to reverse engineer the concepts behind alien technology and improve their own, such as adding plasma cores to their ballistic missiles.

Here's just a sample of the hybrid technologies that will appear in the next patch:
