Re: chemical elements
I figure dilithium is a second-stage element - it's an isotope of Lithium with a subspace component. Trititanium is Titanium with a subspace quark in it's makeup. Tritanium is an alloy of titanium and trititanium, since Trititanium is too expensive to use for the whole hull. Duranium is second-stage iron.
