Data Bank Entry

Magnetite is an iron oxide valued for its magnetic potential amongst other qualities. It is used in many federation technologies, including sonar and torpedo systems.

Assessment: Essential for advanced fabrication



  • Magnetite was at one point renamed to Iron Ore, but was changed back to Magnetite shortly afterward.
    • In real life, Magnetite is often mined and used as a source of iron as an Iron Oxide Crystal.
