Materials Science. The Interstellar Coalition has traditionally relied on chromic hyperalloys for manufacturing its military spacecraft and large-scale construction projects. Chromic hyperalloys are created through a complex process of chemically bonding various hard materials and electroplating layers of trivalent chromium to the admixture. The result is a significantly hardened and corrosion-proof compound metal that is also aesthetically pleasing to the eye. War with the Federation revealed its vulnerability to concentrated phaser fire, prompting the Unified Coalition Navy to build its ships with durasteel imported from the Alliance. Those ships still built with chromic hyperalloys are sleeker than ones created with durasteel. Attempts have been made to apply the chromic-plating process to durasteel but all have failed due to durasteel not bonding correctly to chromium.
