The collective name for the group of technologies which are required for construction of buildings, ships and defenses is Research. Each technology has certain prerequisites - a certain level of Research Lab and, possibly, one or more other technologies. Thereafter the only requirement is the availability of resources.

An important thing to note is that the resource cost to research each level of a given technology is twice that of the previous level excluding Astrophysics (which is 1.75 and result is rounded to the nearest multiple of 100) and Graviton Technology (for which every level is three times as expensive).

The time taken to research a new level of technology depends on the amount of metal and crystal that particular level costs. Research times are reduced by the level of the planet's Research Lab.
