This versatile culture has developed many advanced travel, communication, and energy technologies. Their famed power-suits feature modular weaponry systems, self-replenishing life support equipment, nearly impermeable armor coating, and self-contained mini hyper-boosters. They are manufactured on several worlds for various species by Zorn Industries, named after one of the race's heroes, Sten Zorn of Ecton.
The concept of sportsmanship and good spirit characterize Ectonian culture. This attitude is epitomized in HyperPlasmaBall, a high-speed motor sport originating on Ecton. This sport is so popular throughout the universe, cyclic tournaments are frequently hosted, and multitudes of competitors from dozens of races jockey for the Zorn Cup.
