Netflix film Spectral

MotW Movie Alert
Ever wanted to play MotW with a black ops background?
Spectral is a fun Netflix sci-fi aliens homage film with the classic setup of a MotW mystery.(What the hell? How do we kill it? Let's do it!)
Could be inspiring for a GM to rip off for a cool adventure...
Worth checking out for MotW Netflix fans!

Spoiler Alert! Monster reveals plot of Netflix film Spectral!

You have been warned!

Bose-Einstein Condensate Specter (Inspired by the Netflix film Spectral)
Description: Invisible Apparition (Detected by low light technology) 
Type: Destroyer
Power: Incorporeal
Weakness: Halted by iron shavings and ceramic materials, harmed by energy weapons, killed if central machine destroyed or shut down.
Attack: Freezing Touch 7-harm, Intimate, Ignore Armor. 
Harm Capacity: 7 

Apparitions made of Bose-Einstein Condensate, which explains their ability to move through walls and freeze people to death, but also why they are halted by iron shavings and ceramic materials. They are produced by scanning humans on a molecular level and utilizing advanced 3D printing to replicate them in Condensate form. The human test subjects' brains and central nervous systems were then removed and hooked up to a central machine which keeps the condensate copies (or "apparitions") alive. 

A Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) is a state of matter of a dilute gas of bosons cooled to temperatures very close to absolute zero (that is, very near 0 K or −273.15 °C). Under such conditions, a large fraction of bosons occupy the lowest quantum state, at which point macroscopic quantum phenomena become apparent. It is formed by cooling a gas of extremely low density, about one-hundred-thousandth the density of normal air, to ultra-low temperatures. Due to the unique properties of the condensate, it was shown by Lene Hau[1] that light can either be stopped or slowed down significantly to the velocity of 17 meters per second, resulting in an extremely high refractive index. This state was first predicted, generally, in 1924–25 by Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein.
