  • Components damaged beyond 60% will cease to function.
  • If Crew's Health drops to 0, it forces a Death Save.
  • If Crew's Morale drops below 26, that crew member stops contributing to the Ship's Skill Pools

Effect Sources[edit | edit source]

Critical Hits[edit | edit source]

When a weapon hits in Ship Combat it has a chance to score a Critical Hit. These effects represent the fearsome capability of certain ship weapons to score devastating hits against critical components on an enemy ship.

  • Critical Hits are more likely to damage critical components, such as Engine, Bridge and Weapons.
  • A Critical Hit will cause the Internal Damage being done by that attack to be increased by 100%.
  • A Critical Hit increases the number of crew who are injured during the application of Internal Damage. This doesn't spread the damage thinner, but instead increases the number of crew members that take this full damage.

Crippling Hits[edit | edit source]

When a weapon hits in Ship Combat it has a chance to cause a Crippling Hit Effect. These effects represent the terrible power of capital ship weapons to disrupt a crew, disable a vessel or sow chaos across the stars.

  • Each Ship Weapon has a specific Crippling Hit Chance.
  • A Ship Weapon can only roll a Crippling Hit if it scores a direct hit.
  • Each Weapon rolls a Crippling Hit Chance independent of other weapons.
  • Each successful Crippling Hit roll causes a single negative debuff called a Crippling Hit Ship Effect to be placed on the target.
  • Different Weapons can cause different kinds of Crippling Hits.

Types of Crippling Effects[edit | edit source]

Crippling Effects come in many forms. Each weapon can cause one or two different crippling effects depending on the weapon's type. These debuffs are one of Ship Crippling Effects, Crew Crippling Effects, or Boarding Effects. Some talents can remove effects of the ship variety, while others remove crew crippling hits, and a few talents can remove both of those two. Boarding Effects are only removed by time or the end of combat.
