FROG
Typical of Tartarus's acronyms, the FROG doesn't look at all like a frog. Rather, it's a self-replicating nanobiotic organism. We know that's too much for you to handle, so you can just call it a frog anyway. Or a thing, if that's too hard for you to remember. This "thing" responds to your commands and can leap from your CASKET to ships, structures, and even people if you command it. It will then consume a large portion of whatever metal it encounters and build a new copy of itself over the course of several minutes. This new copy will not be under your control, but will continue to leap among ships - allied and enemy alike. The original thing will consider your ship its home, so there's no need to worry about it eating you, but be wary of the replicas. Fortunately, they're easily destroyed, and if they miss a jump, they're not coming back.
