Portable manipulate subspace machine
We saw it get used this device to Seska to by pass a force field to investigate how Kazon get food replication technology or Seska try destroy evidence. While device does provide protect radical poison the way most likely provide by manipulating subspace. Otherwise how come Seska did stop manipulating subspace after she get past the force field. It possible UFP design device for engineering crewmembers make repair needed save ship form blow bits even with risk losing a few crew members that device might take. After all UFP saying needs many out way need few.
