Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to removal of crew mechanics from the game, this ability offered Resistance to Crew Death and Disable, instead of Hit Points buff.
  • With the addition of torpedoes that deal energy damage, this ability was improved to also give Damage Resistance Rating to all Torpedo hits regardless of damage type, though not for other types of projectile such as Mines.
