Armor is only part of the defenses of a starship. Other defensive systems attenuate and compliment the damage prevention of starships armor, and some systems work to repair damage that has already occurred.

A character without am electrical or mechanical tool kit takes a -4 penalty on the appropriate skill check. The character must also make a Wealth check against the system’s purchase DC.
