Data storage cartridgeThis is a data storage cartridge. On it are the words ASTRAL BODY FORMATION: THE UNTOLD STORY. The cartridge contains a journal of Slash Vohaul - a scientist working on the secret Star Generator project, and the blue prints for building the Star Generator. Found in the Data Archives on the Arcada and used in the Keronian Computer.

A keycard
The keycard is a flat rectangular piece of synthetic material which is magnetically keyed for passing check stations. Written in tiny letters are the words "Beek and Hinder Security Systems". Found in the uniform of a dead crew mate and used to open the elevator door which gives access to the lower level of the Arcada.

A gadget
Written on the electronic gadget are the words DIALECT TRANSLATOR. On one end is a dial and a light (currently dim). Found in the Flight Prep. room and used for talking to the alien head.

Survival kit
This is your survival kit. It contains a Xenon Army Knife and a can of dehydrated water. Found in the pod (after crash landing). You can open it.

Dehydrated water
This is a cylinder of dehydrated water. At the top of the cylinder is a regulator and a short nozzle. On the side is a label. The can label says "Pelvitron's Dehydrate water (H2) - All you add is air! Makes 10 gallons!" Found inside the survival kit and used for drinking or killing the Orat.

Xenon army knife
This is your handy-dandy Xenon Army Knife. Found in the survival kit and used to open the vent in the Deltaur.

A piece of view shield glass
This is a piece of highly reflective view shield glass from the escape pod. Due to its special design there are no sharp edges. Found on the ground near the pod. Used to short out the laser in the underground complex.

A plant piece
This is a plant you are not familiar with. Found on the Keronian desert. You can eat it.

The Orat part
The Orat part seems to consist of a spiny piece of bone with a small amount of somewhat less solid material clinging to one end. Found in Orat's Cave. You need to give it to the alien head.

A rock
This is definitely a rock. Found by underground elevator and used on geyser.

Sand skimmer key

A buckazoid
The buckazoid is a flat piece of a precious alien metal. Found in Ulence Flats and in the slot machine. You can use buckazoids to buy stuff. 

A blass of Keronian Ale
This is a vessel of that acrid-yet-buoyant Keronian Ale. You can buy it in the bar.

A jetpack
This is your bargain jetpack. You get it when selling your sand skimmer. Used in space to reach the Deltaur.

A Sarien ID card
This is a Sarien ID card. The name on the card is Butston Freem. You wonder if this is a common Sarien name. Found in the Sarien uniform pocket and used to get the Pulse Ray.

A Pulse RayThis small item is a Pulse Ray. It delivers concentrated pulses of energy in the direction it is pointed. You can get this item in the armory of the Deltaur and use it to shoot nasty green men.

A gass grenade

A Remote
