Aberrant RPG Mega-Attribute Enhancement: Techgnosis (Mega-Wits)
For all their superhuman genius, many Mega-Intelligent scientists and engineers share a basic failing with their baseline counterparts. Simply put, they make incorrect - and often wildly over-optimistic - assumptions as to how human technology will progress. While their eventual failure is embarrassing for futurists when they are proved wrong, this can also lead to decades worth of wasted effort and resources. Novas with this enhancement are not burdened with that handicap; as they have an intuitive grasp of technology that lets them understand how to reverse engineer, mass produce and use wisely any device they encounter.

System: The nova never suffers any difficulty penalties for working with technologies from different Technology Levels than her own. Provided that the nova has the correct basic Ability to use a device, she can figure out exactly how to use it as a free action. If she gets the chance to examine the device in a non-destructive manner, the nova can make an Intelligence roll to intuit how the device functions and whatever is needed to reproduce it. This enhancement works on both advanced mundane and Inspired technologies of any origin; be it human, transhuman or even alien. This enhancement costs 1 quantum point to use for a scene, although the understanding it grants is permanent for all practical purposes.
