Inventive Engineer (Ex)

Source Character Operations Manual pg. 75
Level Required 14
You are adept at recalibrating and enhancing a starship’s systems. When acting in the engineer or chief mate roles during starship combat, instead of taking any other action, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to temporarily boost your starship’s capabilities. Choose one of the following options. Any change lasts for 1 turn of starship combat per mechanic level. A ship can benefit from only one of these options at a time; if it gains another of these benefits from any source, any previous inventive engineer benefit ends.
Amplify Shields: You double the regeneration speed of your ship’s shields.
Angle Shields: Select one weapon arc of your starship. Any attack made against you from a starship in that arc takes a –1 penalty to the attack roll.
Countermeasures: Your starship’s TL increased by 1.
Low Power Mode: You reduce the PCU cost of a specific system by 10 (minimum 5 PCU).
Speed Boost: You increase your ship’s speed by 2 hexes.
