<<HELPFILE ENTRY>> T.Y.N.A.N. operates all the system functions for the colony to support life, and will also provide recommendations to the colonists on stock levels, nearby resources, local flora and fauna, as well as identifying hostile threats, space debris, and other potential hazards and weather patterns as they arise. Klaxons and other alerts will flash on the colonists LifeSync bracelets, allowing the colony to respond in a timely and sensible fashion. T.Y.N.A.N. is also shielded from EMP and solar activity and has an estimated operating time upwards of 10,000 years.
