The Main Fluid Links are made up of glass tubes filled with mercury. Mercury is an element that can serve as an interface between the forces of thought and energy. Since Artron Energy is the energy of thought, the mercury in the links acts as a "fuse" to transfer power to the Dematerialization Circuit. If the drive systems receive over 1000 omegas of power for more then a few seconds there is a good chance the Fluid Links will overload and release vaporized mercury into the control room. The Links are located in the base of the console in the Secondary Control Room and can refilled by pouring mercury into the appropriate port on the console. The fluid links require ten milliliters of mercury to function. In addition to refilling the Links, after an overload the operator will have to repair several other systems (located in the Power Stacks Room).
