Chapter I: Overview
What are Brikerntics? Brikerntics are cybernetic or steampunk machinery implanted into a minifig’s body(willingly or unwillingly) to improve a minifig’s abilities in a certain field. This supplement contains a list of pre-made cybernetics, in addition to rules for making your own. Lastly, this supplment overhauls 501stCadian’s Brikwiki SHIP classification system with a new, easier to use system.
Chapter II: Brikernetic Implants
Implants, when installed into a minifig’s body, give that minifig either improved skills or new skills altogether. However, a minifig can only have so many implants installed into his body; for the average minifig this is just one, but minifigs made of sterner stuff(such as Heros) can have up to four Brikerntic Implants stuck in them. A list of Brikerntic Implants can be found in this chapter, but players are free to make their own- the Rule of Fudge applies when two players discuss the balance of certain implants.

SHIPS are the thin skin against the cold void of space. Ever since minifig looked to the stars, he has had one burning desire: To blow shit up in the cold void of space. Ever since, many basic archetypes of ships have been created. In G.R. 2010, the relatively unknown 501stCadians laid out a system for classifying ships. Now, that system is being overhauled by the USFMASTBSU organization. (Universal System For Massively Awesome Ships That Blow Shit Up Organization). The USFMASTBSU has made the following ship classifications:
The term “In Length” means from nose to rearmost engines.
Fighter: 2”-4” in Length. The term “Fighter” incompasses anything from Fighters to Interceptors to Bombers. They are armed per normal MOC rules in the Brikwars 2010 rulebook. Must be carried by a carrier, cruiser, or station.
Gunboat: 4”-8” in Length. Gunboats are normally used for station defense, and are not able to go faster than light.
Frigate: Frigates are 8”-10” in length. This normally incompases Transports, Planetary Landers, and anything else in that general size; the Frigate class is a catchall for SHIPs. They must have at least 4 Class IV or lower weapons. Ships that were previously classified as Corvettes are now also Frigates.
Destroyers: 10”-12” in length. Destroyers form the mainstays of most fleets, and typically are also capable of small ship to ship boarding actions. Destroyers must have at least one Class V weapon and 6 class IV or lower weapons.
Light Cruisers: 12”-16” in length. Light Cruisers often form leadership units for Destroyer squadrons for act as escort ships for larger ships.
Cruisers: 16”-22” in length. Cruisers often work alone on patrols or in groups in a larger fleet. A single cruiser is often worth a few Destroyers.
Battleship: 22”-24” in length. Battleships often form flagships or patrol by themselves on long patrols. Massive in size, Battleships can take on a small fleet by themselves and come out victorious.
Dreadnought: 24”-40” in length. Dreadnoughts form the core of large battlefleets, and often serve as the flagship of those fleets. Dreadnoughts can take immense amounts of punishment, and deal it out in return.
Planet Killer of the Line: 48”-N/A” in length. Planet Killers of the Line range from 36” minimum to any size, and are horrific monstrosities never seen before in combat. As such, classifications are hard to pick out.
Space Station: *Any Size*. Space Stations are immobile starships in orbit around a sun or planet. They can range in size, but if a station is under 12” in length or width; user Cruiser primary weapons, any larger and use Battleship primary weapons..
