The Control Interface Hub, nicknamed the Apple Core or APLCR by the Destiny Expedition, sits in the center of the Control Interface Room. All information regarding the Ancient ship, Destiny passes through the hub and is thereby able to be monitored by anyone using one of the consoles located in the room. There is a central console, connected directly to the base of the hub and two additional consoles elsewhere in the room. Though a person is able to monitor all systems using the hub, not all systems can be controlled from this location. Steam, or smoke, is often consistently rolling out of the top of the device, which runs from the floor to the ceiling of the room, which most likely works as a sort of cooling or heat-sinking system.
