Space Snot - The Parasite Within The Drive!

Among the stars filled with slimes, molds, jellies & oozes, there is one that causes scientists & astronauts alike to shiver. SPACE SNOT!
  Space snot is caused by a reaction between the planar drive systems & the tri- column nature of the space time continuum. The stuff congeals from within the no space of the drive systems where it quickly begins to consume the delicate parts slowly but surely within 14 rounds! Space snot often take on the characteristics of which parts it consumes. This stuff is often found within star ship wrecks or hulks depending upon if the star ship reactor is still intact. Star Snot is an off shoot of Space Snot & most secrete an acid from their skin that dissolves flesh and other materials rapidly. Star Snot does 1d8 points of damage per round. Many astronauts prospect within Space Hulks for Space Snot & sell the stuff to scientists who use this life form as part of many super science potions & devices!
Random 1d10 Space Snot Characteristics 
  1. Add +1 to +3 to an attribute for 1d6 rounds as the powerful energies the space snot has absorbed courses through you!
  2. 1d6 points of damage as antimatter explodes from the body of the life form
  3. Randomly teleport 1d4 miles from present location as you are shunted through higher planar space
  4. Add a +1 to Charisma & gain the voice power as the slime spreads its power through your mind
  5. 1d8 points of electrical damage that have been drained from the power packs of the ship. If handled correctly with a skill roll the snot may be used to recharge an energy weapon or jump start a ship
