Alien Abilities

Intro

Disclaimer: info on this page is incomplete and in flux, is partly incorrect
It is possible to gain certain abilities from touching alien equipment (at the moment we only know of the orbs, but this might change in the future).
These abilities do not require rolls (not the ones we currently know of, at least) but can only be activated occasionally; practically speaking, don't spam them, use them on special occasions a few times per mission and they will work when you need them to.
There are different tiers of abilities, gained with each consequent touching of an orb. Meaning, you get tier 2 after you've already gained tier 1, etc.
Which ability you get is partly random and partly based on your character stats and skills, according to the three above. You can get an ability if you have one of the lower tier abilities it is linked to.
The colours indicate which starting abilities give you possible eventual access to each power.
Here is a list of currently known abilities:

Tier 1

1. QuantumVision (Red)

Allows the user to see a glowing halo around anomalous materials or objects/people containing them. (probably)

2. MultiverseVision (Green)

Allows the user to see the different dimensions of the multiverse separately. Useful when interacting with the four dimensional quantum tech.

3. FutureVision (Blue)

Allows the user to look forward into a projected future for about a minute. This knowledge can then be used to their advantage: the user can choose to attack enemies first who would otherwise kill them or allies, or take another route that is less dangerous, put up a shield to block an otherwise successful hit, scout an area without physical danger etc.

Tier 2

1. ???

3. Something

? Dunno what it is, but Squidhead has it now

4. ???

5. ???

6. Interdimensional Kleptomania

Allows the user to take objects from timelines projected by FutureVision into theirs, also removing them from the real timeline at the moment of theft. (Real moment, not moment of theft in the projected timeline - there are never 2 copies of the object or something.)
