Maintain Readiness

Source Character Operations Manual pg. 153
You keep a watchful eye on your surroundings, hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.

Activity: You take up a sentry position, make regular patrols, or monitor your ship’s scanners to watch for trouble.

Results: If this downtime activity is interrupted by combat (including starship combat), you gain a +2 circumstance bonus to the initiative check (or to the first Piloting check to determine turn order, if you are serving as the captain or pilot of a starship) for that combat. This downtime activity doesn’t provide any benefit if you or your allies intentionally seek out combat.
