Skill: Defensive Subsystem Tuning
This skill improves the amount of subsystem power available in your Shields and Auxiliary Subsystems.
By default your starship will regain .1% of its maximum Shield capacity every 6 seconds and negate 2% of the damage that the shields take per 1 Power. These effects can be increased by the Shield Regeneration and Shield Resilience skills respectively.
Each point of Auxiliary Subsystem Power provides a 1% Recharge Time Reduction for Hangar Pets. as well as providing bonuses to the effectiveness of many abilities.
- +4.8 Shields and Auxiliary Subsystem Power
- +3.2 Shields Subsystem Power = Total Subsystem Power Bonus = +8.0
- +3.2 Auxiliary Subsystem Power = Total Subsystem Power Bonus = +8.0
Overview[edit | edit source]
Defensive Subsystem Tuning is a Captain Engineering skill that is available to all Captains.There are three total skills, benefiting both Shields and Auxiliary Subsystem Power and a point dedicated to each individual subsystem in this chain, each costing 1 Space Point to purchase.
The Auxiliary subsystem affects Science Space bridge officer abilities as well as your starships cloak detection (also know as Perception) and if applicable, the potency of your cloaking system. Every point of power above 50 into the Auxiliary systems will increase your Perception stat by 2% and increase the potency of Science abilities by 2%. Every point of power under 50 in the Auxiliary subsystem will do the reverse and drop the modifier of abilities, perception and cloak effectiveness by 0.6% and 2% respectively.
