New Stars of Maelstrom
A Magnetar is a spinning neutron star with a super-strong magnetic field a thousand trillion times stronger than Earth's magnetic field. Quakes triggered on the surface of the Magnetar cause great volatility in the magnetic field of the star, often leading to extremely powerful gamma ray flare emissions.
Quakes triggered on the surface of the magnetar cause extremely powerful gamma ray flare emissions. Ship shields and hulls are severely affected.
Magnetars are the most magnetic objects detected in the universe, their magnetic fields are hundreds of millions of times stronger than any manufactured magnet. Ship maneuvering, thrust and velocity are all affected.
