Subj: I prefer them to be minor ship-repair tools

Reply Subj: Re: IMO, their power level should be compared to the Rogues' weapons (cold gun, heat gun, ...) and Ben 10's alien wristwatch

My headcanon is the rings were originally created in an attempt to imitate, or replicate, the power of the Infinity Gems to as great an extent as possible.

Ten small containers, each giving access to one tremendous power - each with their own AI to properly control it.

Matter Rearranger to fix things directly, cold for when the ship overheats, heat for when the ship gets too cold, electricity as an emergency backup if the power goes out, tornadoes to gather up poison gases or air-borne diseases, psionic illusions to entertain as a sort of psionic holodeck, that sort of thing.

It's kind of like the villains in Thundarr the Barbarian: they scavenge tech that was mostly fairly minor pre-cataclysm, but which is pretty powerful in their time.
