In game terms, starships operate much like characters. Where characters have Brawn, Agility, Sensors, and Endurance, starships have Mass, Maneuverability, Sensors, and Integrity. Most starships also have armor or energy shields (some starships have both). Some starships have weapons, and a few have exotic equipment like tractor beams.

Armor

XXX WORKING

Armor provides protection against most forms of direct damage: anything which inflicts Integrity damage. The defense value (DV) of a starship with armor is equal to its relevant defense attribute (Mass or Maneuverability) + 1, or the defense rating of the armor, whichever is greater. As always, this protection does not stack with energy shields or other forms of defense -- only the highest defense value applies.

Heavier armor restricts a starship's mobility. The effective Maneuverability of a starship with armor may be limited.

Energy Shields

Energy shields provide protection against most forms of direct damage: anything which inflicts Integrity damage. The defense value (DV) of a starship with an energy shield is equal to its relevant defense attribute (Mass or Maneuverability) + 1, or the defense rating of the energy shield, whichever is greater. As always, this protection does not stack with armor or other forms of defense -- only the highest defense value applies.

Shields which are stronger also generate more electromagnetic interference. The effective Sensors of a starship using an energy shield may be limited.

Short Range Weapons

Short range weapons are typically useful up to a distance of 10 meters. The attack value (DV) of a starship using a ranged weapon is usually equal to its relevant attack attribute (typically Maneuverability) + 1, or the attack rating of the weapon, whichever is greater.

Medium Range Weapons

Medium range weapons are typically useful up to a distance of 50 meters. The attack value (DV) of a starship using a ranged weapon is usually equal to its relevant attack attribute (typically Maneuverability) + 1, or the attack rating of the weapon, whichever is greater.

A Note On Repeating Weapons

Weapons which fire multiple rounds, such as turbolasers and MIRV torpedoes, usually grant an attack bonus (+3), and they might or might not do more damage than their single-shot equivalents (AR 4 instead of AR 3, for example), but the attack is only resolved once. Whether the damage from an attack is inflicted by one discrete injury or twelve, it's all just one attack roll. There's no "roll damage three times" mechanic like some game systems have.
