Energy-Absorbent Plating

Source Starfinder #27: Deceivers’ Moon pg. 47
AC Bonus —; BP Cost 4 x size category; Temp HP —; Special

A ship equipped with energy-absorbent plating can store some of the energy that strikes the hull, redirecting that energy to power the ship’s systems. Once per turn, when a ship with energy-absorbent plating is hit by an attack that penetrates its shields, the ship’s engineer may immediately take a free divert action. The boost granted by this free divert action does not stack with the benefit of any other divert action already benefiting the ship.
