Mallium, next in the periodic table to unobtanium.

actually i think it might be a solid block of nanites that change shape when told to with computer programs

Doesn’t have to be nanites it could be a… Super alloy. Nannite or 3d built structure that is partially magnetic. Electricity is applied and the magnetic part moves rearranging the Crystalline structure at its base molecule. I know it sounds like nanites but nanites govern themselves with orders. This appears to be governed by the laws of physics by the way it turns to goo with her raw electricity

perhaps… but something like that might be sensitive to any magnetic fields so it might be unable to be produced within the solar system, at least in its raw form (like that cube, and after being subjected to electromagnetic field to change its shape it becomes stable and won’t change again). they might have a factory in Interstellar space, outside the magnetic fields of stars, that produces the raw form of this “malleum” then uses it to make all of their structures…. i dunno, i’m not exactly a physicist (not a professional anyway)

because i’m a nerd and i like overthinking things that pique my interest

also i still think Malleum is just Nanites. there was a novel series i read a while ago, i can’t remember what its called, but the whole premise is that these alien ships made up of Nanites abduct a bunch of people all over the world and they use the nanites to advance civilization and explore the small parts of the galaxy they can explore, the main cast for the second half of the series actually get lost in a trinary solar system and pretty much mass produce these nanites to make a small fleet with the limited crew they had with them using raw materials from asteroids and planetoids and fought two hostile species on their way out of the system and almost killed stellar entity that’s pretty much a member of a type 3 civilization, which makes it compared to us today god-like. it’s really good. but yeah malleum reminds me of the Nanites they used to make everything they use, from the armor and weapons they use to their reinforced skeletons and accelerated healing processes. its really cool
