Maybe the most popular items and used-in-fan-fiction lore will make it into the game, in one of the random item descriptions. You know how they colour the world by mentioning things, like corporate names and the history of how items came to be?
Right here's my first one; a really utilitarian one to start with!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Name:
High Efficiency Air Tuner (HEAT)

Purpose:
To convert any internal atmosphere (whether at home, on a mining shop, in a shuttle or stuck in a cave in Xenos - If salvaged from the wreckage!) from damp and cold to dry and warm.
Any non-combustable atmosphere can be dried and heated through the device, protecting people from harsh winters and freezing to death when getting lost during exploration.
"Turn up the HEAT!"

Diagram and Description:

That's a standard image of a heater. Remove the gas intake and replace it a portable oxygen refill, the likes of which you carry with you in Xenominer. The whole unit dimensions would only be, say, the size of a portable gas stove. The kind you would take camping with you in real life. The unit would fit neatly into a carry case.
Some modifications would have to be made to the locations of the cool air intake and the hot air blower in order to provide maximum efficiency on a portable scale.

The advantage of this is that when exploring Xenos you only need your oxygen tank to use it, and it would fit neatly into your MULE despite the complex parts - just like switches and conduits and circuit boards etc. do now.

this post isnt about stuff that should be in the game. its about pop culture. like what kind of shows exist at the time. what do people eat. is racism still a thing? is there world peace at the time? maybe there's a cartoon in the universe called "Pals for Life" which is basically my little pony but with other animals and less girly.

Sorry, I understood that, I was just injecting some humor from the point of the stranded astronaut - think "Red Dwarf" and Rimmer.

Orga-Pet:
Since all/most of animals died off (from one thing or another) [Humans don't need animals to keep the world healthy anymore, and have test tube grown food] an Orgapet is an Organic (Biological) pet which you can design on your own (like a build-a-bear but for an actual pet). Basicly you design what it'll look like and what it'll do. Every Orgapet eats the same type of food no matter the form it takes.

Raidi-olem -astronaut sunscreen w/ alo used bfore the invention of nano-rad. still used by health nuts

Galaxy Classic -civilian interstellar nav. and stardrive. a cheap all-in-one product with various limitations and faults such as only having preset interstellar routes.

Dolomite Vector Calculator -industry standard asteriod surveying and plotting system. an illegal work around to sync it to a stardrive makes for a very reliable interstellar nav. if you have enough good starmaps to string together

Navy Nav. Array -the best interstellar navigation and database system. only availlible to military and
multi-trillionares

psuedo-pod -an insult discribing Vitual Reality addicts

Zone Ball -zero-gravity handball

meteor man -an asteriod squatter like a mountain man, or You in-game but by choice!

Star Drops -hard candy that is super sour and generates light as it dissolves. lighting up mouths with white, red, blue, green, or purple types but always the same flavour.

I enjoy this topic a lot :D
Exocharge pad: pad that charges things when the object or person stands on the pad. Allows one to charge their Digigram while simply holding it in their hands.

The SSCU: stands for super sanitation containment unit. A bin that is fire proof along with being infused with special compounds that slowly dissolve organic compounds. Makes it germ free and an easy vomit disposal unit. Also used as a janitor bucket since it create soapy water and easily removes any organic things picked up by the janitors gloves or tools.

zudolang ( zu-do-lang ) word invented by the youth that means to explains what one is going to do presently or to tell someone what to do with non proper words or format considered slang. Is often used to express what one has done along with what they are planning to do.
Ex Bob: So you zudolang the removal of them boxes and place those furniture in their place.

light conduits: Used to transfer energy via light. Very expensive and mainly used for long distance travel through space. Some energy is lost from heat and when small things travel through its path. Was used to provide power to worlds from dead moons being contaminated by green house gasses.
The TCD 1471 !!!
