Backup Battery

A backup battery is a common safety precaution taken by all space travelers, but smugglers and pirates put it to even better use. A backup battery allows the ship to operate, at least its basic functions, for up to 1 hour after the ship’s power generator fails. Additionally, if a ship is pushed to the bottom of the condition track by ion damage, the ship’s engineer can make a DC 25 Mechanics check to reverse the ionization using the backup battery, moving the ship +1 step up the condition track. However, doing so drains the backup battery, which must then be replaced.
