| Capturable construction unit that allows human players to build a single type of mark V ship at this one location.|
Does not require the player to have the ship type already in his fleet. If the player does have the ship, research is not required to allow the ship to be built.
Fabricators for all types of fleet ships and starships can be found.
When a Fabricator is captured in a multiplayer game, the capturing player gains control of the Fabricator.
Each other player in the game receives control of a Fabricator-Foldout that spawns.
This allows every player in the game to build their own ship cap of the ship type that the fabricator builds.
The Foldout is permanently cloaked and so can not be targeted by the AI's forces. However, if the main Fabricator under control of the capturing player is destroyed, all Foldouts for that fabricator are destroyed as well.

How to use in your fleet
These structures allow you to add a powerful set of Mk. V units to your fleet, however you must determine if capturing the system is worth the AIP cost to get said Mk. V ships.
Fabricators exist for all fleet ships and starships available to the player. Note that they are not limited to the ships you have unlocked, they will randomly pick from all ships available based on the activated expansions and the ship choices picked during game setup.
Fabricators can also pick their ship type from the Warbird Starship and Beam Starship which have no Mk I to Mk IV equivalent.
How to counter when in the AI fleet
Not used by the AI but if you can capture this structure you will increase the size of you fleet with a powerful group of Mark V ships.
