Wartime Emergency Reactor Output (WERO), also known as "Emergency Burn", is a term used to describe when Sazkarjhit capital ships increase reactor output to dangerously high levels, usually between 110-120% full burn. The process involves removing most cooling rods from the reactor(s) and increasing the energy output of the reaction. It is highly dangerous as even the slightest abrupt altering of the reaction can cause containment damage and prompt a runaway reaction, which in almost 99% of cases leads to a catastrophic reactor meltdown. It has its name due to the fact that it is only used for emergency escape while allowing the HyperJump Engine to activate or for an emergency escort maneuver.
