Ship Skill Pools

Skills are the measurement of what any particular crew member (including Captain and Officers) is capable of doing. Skills are increased through training in various Jobs. Characters may also have natural skill bonuses or gain them based on the Traits that they have. Regular crew can only use these bonus skill points in combat, while officers can use them in any situation. The Ship Ops Skills of all crew members contribute to fulfilling the skill pools necessary to successfully fly and land the ship. Nearly all Ship Ops and Personal Skills are also collectively tested in various Skill Tests, such as in deep space events, which are listed in the scrolling log on the right side when flying through deep space. Skills are also tested collectively in different operations such as Patrolling, Blockading, Spying, Exploring and accessing the Black Market. Combat skills apply uniquely to crew combat situations though some are tested in deep space travel.

Talents utilize a crew member's individual Skill modifier.

The only character who can be assigned specific skill bonuses is the Captain. This is done using the Character Template Creator. The player will be given a number of bonus skill points to assign based on the priority level they have given to Skills. The Captain's skills can be very important because certain parts of the game have unique tests which are difficult to build large pools in, such as Exploring. Bonus skills in explore will help an explorer captain get going much more quickly. Bonus skills can also be very important for captain who will be joining in Crew Combat as many jobs outside of Soldier, Pistoleer and Swordsman do not provide Evasion or substantial weapons skills.
