You learn your first mechanic trick at 2nd level and an additional trick every 2 levels thereafter. Mechanic tricks all require you to meet a minimum mechanic level, and they are organized accordingly. Some mechanic tricks require you to satisfy other prerequisites, such as having other tricks.

During the engineering phase of starship combat, you can perform a special engineer crew action called vent engines. As your starship moves during the next helm phase, it fills a number of consecutive hexes it departs with hazardous energy; the number of hexes filled can’t exceed your Intelligence modifier. The energy dissipates at the beginning of the following turn’s helm phase. Any starship that enters one or more of these hexes before then takes damage equal to 1d4 × your starship’s tier, distributed evenly across all four quadrants. You can use this action once per combat, though you can use it additional times by spending 1 Resolve Point for each additional use.
