This article is about the Alien Artifact Terminal. You may be looking for Alien Data Terminal.

An Artifact Terminal outside the Quarantine Enforcement Platform

Alien Artifact Terminals are found around or within almost every Precursor Base and Cache. They act as locks and are each connected to a forcefield, preventing progression through the base unless the corresponding Artifact is used. The majority of Artifact Terminals require a Purple Artifact to be deactivated, though there are three exceptions to this; the Terminal outside of the Lost River Laboratory, which requires the Orange Artifact, and the two Terminals in the Primary Containment Facility, which require a Blue Artifact.

Data Bank EntryEdit

This device appears to be alien in origin, and is connected up to a nearby forcefield. The technology is far beyond anything encountered before by the federation. Nonetheless, it appears to function like a normal lock, it only needs the correct kind of key.
