Science was refered to as "magick" in the past. Think about it. What would people 3,000 years ago believe if a person arrived with today's technology? They would think it was magical and required some kind of hocus-pocus or voodoo dance to activate. I have no problems with "maguffins" and "deus ex machina" in the game or sci-fi universe so long as there is a somewhat reasonable explination for its existance.
