-1 to starship's structure for many battle scars, - 5 to all ship combat maneuver action when on its own as the ship is eternaly waiting for is formation to catch up, when acting as par of a fleet +5 to all ship combat maneuver and to other ships it as contact with (scrambling will void the benefit to other vessels but not this vessel as it will still know how to react when in thigh formation). When using the ship as a fleet maneuver assistant, the many ships cogitators interacting cause lots of chatter in between ships, rendering stealth and other such actions virtually useless as the enemy is able to detect the many coded transmissions. The ship will also bring 250 achievement points toward en endeavor made in pair with Imperial fleet.
