Cargo Containers are a module type in Lightspeed Frontier. They store items that ships pick up. A breakthrough in approximately 2320 made traditional containers completely obsolete and they were replaced by new matter to data and energy converters. Items stored in cargo can be managed using the inventory.
Unlike traditional containers which store contents by enveloping them, these analyze and record the entire atomic structure of items. The structure data is stored in internal servers while the item's energy is put into onboard capacitors.
On reaching critical structural integrity, these have a fail safe eject hook which will re-materialize all stored items before the cargo module is destroyed.
