Engage the Precursor warp nullifier. Hee! Hee! Hee!... prepare for battle!

This Precursor Warp Nullifier, would this be the thing that generates those bubbles?

Also... I think it only fair to warn you, Captain
that in my campaigns I collected many interesting items.
Amongst these treasures is a Precursor artifact, a warp nullification field
that prevents nearby ships from making emergency Hyperspace maneuvers... from running away.

Then again, if you actually fight ZEX's fleet, you'll eventually discover that he's bluffing, and no such device exists (or at least, it doesn't work the way he expected).

It raises an interesting point, though: How would something like that actually work, given what we know about Hyperspace? Localized gravity field around the combat sphere, maybe, that's powerful enough to draw ships that attempt to escpae back inside?

I have got the understanding , that he just didn't engauge the device before you bring him the beast .

For actual workings - I'd think more in the lines of EM emmiter that resonates with hyperspace drives , preventing it's function - seems somewhat more energy efficient .
