"It's some kind of energy sword prototype...Looks useful."
"You should let me examine it."
"Of course. After some field testing..."

The monomolecular blade is a prototype terran energy sword. It utilizes its wielder's psionic energy to hone an edge that has been sharpened to a microscopic degree, allegedly only one molecule thick at the edge, allowing it to cut through both physical armor and energy shields. A monomolecular blade was discovered in a Defenders of Man facility on Tarsonis by Agent Nova Terra. Nova then used the device to aid her in maneuvering through the facility undetected.[1]

Game EffectEdit

The monomolecular blade is a choice for Nova's weapon slot in Nova Covert Ops after completing "Enemy Intelligence".[1]
