Ship Flight Data is an Encoded Material. It is obtained by scanning a Thargoid Interceptor or Thargoid Scout with an AX Xeno Scanner.
Data collected from a detailed scan of a Thargoid vessel using a Xeno Scanner. This data contains information relating to the flight mechanics, flight systems and combat manoeuvres of a Thargoid ship. Research into this data is currently ongoing, with many engineers speculating that the information could hold the key to developing anti-Thargoid strategies and improve human technology to counter the threat posed by this race. Therefore, Thargoid related data is highly sought after for scientific research or can be used in the synthesis of various anti-Thargoid ammunition types.
