Dilithium was named as a extrapolation of another element's name, [[lithium]]. Dilithium was of note to Federation [[science]] because of qualities as a [[subspace]] amplifier, creating [[transtator]] current when exposed to subspace fields. It was the only known material which could regulate [[matter]]/[[antimatter]] reactions, which was why it is used by most species in their [[warp drive]]s. Different compositions and origins produced slightly different appearances in the crystals, ranging in shape and color. ({{n|TOS|{{nd|Prime Directive}}}})
