I gotta pipe up on the ship upgrade. There is no defense like a good offense. Also, starship combat can be super tedious. That being said, at Tier 5, you can install what I like to call The Lightbringer Cannon.

So the Solarian casually stomped the downed Outsider for 4 hours while the mystic and operative used UPB to craft a cheap anarchic dagger to kill it. UPB made the dream work!
