** '''Mass Relay:''' Mass relays are enormous mass accelerators designed to fling ships from one star cluster to another at FTL speeds. They are the keys to rapid interstellar travel in the ''[[Mass Effect]]'' setting, enabling leaps of tens of thousands of light years in seconds. A typical mass relay has a very limited number of "target" systems, so getting to a particular destination may require several jumps in succession.

* '''Weaponry:''' Mass-altered projectiles can be accelerated to high velocities. Mass accelerator weapons range from handguns to starship weapons.

* '''Defenses:''' Mass effect [[shield|force fields]] (known as "kinetic barriers") can stop or deflect inbound projectiles traveling at dangerous speeds. Barrier technology is scalable from personal shields to starship shields.

* '''[[Biotic]]s:''' Prenatal exposure to element zero allows living beings to develop "biotic" abilities to create mass effect fields by manipulating element zero with their own bioelectricity. These abilities are typically enhanced with implants known as "biotic amplifiers".
