Crew

Crew can be hired to join you for a one-off cost and provide different perks based on their role. You can find crew to hire in any system which provides the crew hiring service, mostly this is from systems with the outpost structure. Crew gain level any time they use a room that is designed for their role, this is listed in the room description and rooms can be fitted in any system which also provides the ship trading service. Crew may use fitted rooms at their leisure, so it is always wise to have suitable rooms fitted when possible.

The different roles of crew are listed below, and the perk they provide increases in effectiveness as their level increases. The statistics shown are therefore representative of a level 100 (maximum level) crew member.
