Noqual armor deflects magical attacks and absorbs ambient magic, complicating the actions of spellcasting officers on board. Treat the starship’s tier as 2 higher when determining the Mysticism DC of magic officer actions that use the armored starship’s tier to calculate the DC of Mysticism checks. Additionally, the starship’s AC and TL increase by 2 against weapons with the mystical special property.

The scanning pulses emitted by a noqual-augmented sensor array can interfere with enemy diagnostics, particularly the functions of any magitech components. When a science officer uses the scan crew action and exceeds the check DC by 5 or more, they can choose to learn only one piece of information and instead scramble the other ship’s sensors, giving the sensors the glitching condition for 1 round for every 5 by which the Computers check exceeded the scan action’s DC.
