This device will not override security programming in place nor will it permit otherwise unauthorized access to host systems. This unit does, however, provide for easy data transference between what might otherwise be incompatible system architectures.

Game Notes:
Cyborgs can make computer programming rolls or give simple commands. At-Computer Link is linked to a specific computer, but extra computers may be added. Cyborgs can only manipulate simple operations on a ship, such as things that a computer normally handles by itself. Air locks can be opened, grappling hooks deployed or released. Piloting and gunnery are far to sophisticated operations to be run through the computer system.
