Veridigen is a lower power cousin to phlogisten and is employed in many systems throughout an æthership. The nature of veridigen is that it acts like a natural transducer. This versatility allows it to power electrical devices, pneumatic or hydraulic devices and even act as a radiant emitter producing heat and or light. Discharged veridigen is cycled back to main engineering and into the stacks. Inside the stacks the veridigen gas is directed into ever smaller conduits of pure magnalloy. These capillaries form a channel through which the main Furnace exhaust is intermixed with cyneogene and produces an electrogenic effect. The effect itself does not recharge the veridigen but acts as a transfer means to convey power from the decaying ætherines to the veridigen. After being charged the veridigen is drawn into larger conduits and distributed throughout the ship. Veridigen unlike phlogisten does not need to be insulated, as it is relatively innocuous to humans except for its overpowering smell of ozone.
Most of the ships lighting is powered by veridigen bulbs or globes. Veridigen light, similar to lime light, tends toward the green spectrum, hence the name. Other veridigen-powered ship's systems include the ships gravity plating and inertial dampeners. Inertia can be nullified by creating a paraformic discharge field within the ship. This field is created by grounding a veridigen decompression matrix through a trexine mesh. This apparatus isolates the mater within the mesh from any inertial forces that may normally act on the mater inside. The gravity plating creates a simulated gravity effect through para-proxy counter repulsive means. Other veridigen systems on board include the all analysis and computational systems, atmospheric reclaimators, hydro purifiers, the pneumatic tube systems as well as powered hatches and doors, etc.
Veridigen is also used in personal systems such as weapons, Æther suits, hand torches, communication devices, etc. Veridigen power blocks are designed into portable systems much like electrical batteries in day of old.
