After drawing power from the Khaydarin Crystal Core, the Repulsor Cannon projects a concentrated blast of semi-solid psionic energy—too dense for aerial combat—that causes damage by delivering kinetic and thermal energy. Each shot pierces matter violently, leaving a misty cloud of psionic fire in its wake.
By channeling a torrent of raw psionic power into the Nexus’ Khaydarin Crystal, the Mothership
Core can turn it into a deadly weapon. In this state, the supercharged matrix fires psionically imbued photon bolts that can tear through enemy scouts and light raiding parties, as well as deter larger attack groups until reinforcements can be warped in.
The Mothership Core can bend space-time to create a field where the present dilates and stretches endlessly. The unpredictable energy flux within this field bears down heavily on anything that crosses it. Enemy forces caught in the Time Warp are slowed to a crawl, allowing the Firstborn to dispatch them with ease.
Mothership Cores share a strong psionic link with the Khaydarin Crystals present in every Protoss Nexus, and can use the crystals’ location as a warp beacon. By releasing a large amount of energy, a Mothership Core can unravel the weave of space-time, teleporting groups of warriors to any Nexus point in the vicinity.
