Nemesis Status (original)

This page details the current status of the Nemesis - a Tartarus Incorporated battlecarrier and the hub of the Beyond The Edge campaign. At the beginning of the campaign, the Nemesis is barely functional and hardly capable of flight. Given enough time and resources, the ship's engineers can patch, repair, or even upgrade many of its systems.


Current Status

Reactor 0 Low power to all systems; primary conduits damaged; running on auxiliary. Lights may flicker.
Hull -2 Hull severely damaged; hull breaches common. Armor mostly gone; remainder in terrible condition.
Shields -2 Shield generator damaged during Battle of Nanyej and completely obliterated during subsequent forced landing. No shields available.
Maneuverability -2 All maneuvering thrusters critically damaged and malfunctioning; disabled by engineers to keep hull integrity intact.
Decryption Team -2 Decryption team died during Comm Center hull breach. No survivors. Associated computers and equipment destroyed.
SCAMPS +1 Single SCAMPS core; current functioning at peak capacity. Undamaged during the Battle of Nanyej.
Hangar 0 Hangar functioning at minimum capacity. Many crew dead or MIA; replacement parts scavenged and hard to come by. Limited ship roster.
Engines -1 Engines heavily damaged. Low engine thrust. Veloxium core replacement necessary for warp; otherwise warp power is offline.
Comm Center -2 Comm center obliterated and stripped away. Many crew dead or MIA. Communication-capable in 10km radius through auxiliary equipment.
Medbay -1 Severely damaged; staff awake full time to treat injuries. Supplies extremely low. Resurrection/regrowth capabilities nonexistent.
Engineering -1 Suffered severe damage during Battle of Nanyej. Major hull breaches in multiple places. Currently at minimal functionality.
Weapon Systems -1 Point defense cannons partially restored. Cannot defend against fighters or larger without support. Main weapons offline.
Main Bridge -2 Bridge breached and inoperable. Unable to decouple; full of twisted debris and wreckage. Currently unable to function as a bridge.
Armory 0 Heavily damaged. Larger arms and equipment lost or destroyed; hull breach in top three floors. Repairs and rebuilding required.
Sensors -1 Heavily damaged during Battle of Nanyej. Crew safe due to evacuation, but equipment only capable of minimal functionality.
Drone Bays -2 Heavy ordnance caused chain reaction explosion that decimated this area and the drone stocks. Currently non-functional.

Repair/Upgrade Trees

For clarification: these are not "paths" but rather "trees". Taking one side or the other does not mean that you will be unable to choose a different path later on. For instance, with drones, you can have drones stocked for combat and repair - but you can't make both upgrades at the same time without upgrading engineering. Engineering controls how many upgrades you can make on a particular month (or, post-mission). The engineers start with the ability to make four upgrades every month (or, per post-mission, in game terms). Later, you can upgrade this as well, to a maximum of eleven upgrades per month. Alternatively, with each engineering upgrade you can unlock the ability to put two upgrades in a particular "area" (Medbay, Shields, Reactor, Engines, etc.) per month. This will not give you any extra upgrade points, however; the two are mutually exclusive.

For an upgrade to be taken, the upgrade directly above it must have already been taken (it must be dark gray).

Pending (will be repaired after Mission 1): Reactor 4A, Hull 2A, Engines 2A, Medbay 3


Reactor destroyed; ship dead in the water. No power to any systems.
Emergency power only. Lights at minimum; many areas dark. Higher-power or non-critical systems may not function.
Low power to all systems. Primary conduits damaged; running on auxiliary. Lights may flicker.
Gravity generator upgraded. Ship has ability to perform take-offs and landings in high-gravity areas.
Normal power to all systems. Power is best routed between separate systems for maximum efficiency.
Gravity generator maxed. Recharge times no longer necessary.

Reactor safely in permanent overdrive; all power to all systems. No need to switch between for efficiency.


Hull severely damaged; hull breaches common. Armor mostly gone; remainder in terrible condition.
Critical hull breaches repaired: Ship is fully spaceworthy and life support is functional. Armor is patched and functional again; can take some direct hits without internal damage
Major hull breaches repaired: Lower engineering, lower bedrooms, armory, laboratory Armor is repaired to normal condition; can take more direct hits without hull breaches
Minor hull breaches repaired: Library, recreation areas, outer hallways, observation platforms Armor is reinforced and strengthened past standard state


Shield generator completely obliterated. No shields available.
Shield generator partly rebuilt. Main structuring replaced and framework ready for final installment.
Shield generator rebuilt; minimal functionality. Can stand up to fighters for a short while at best.
Moderate functionality restored. Can take larger hits; can stand up to fighters for decent periods of time.
Shield generator recharge boosted with additional capacitors and power coils. Can recharge at a decent pace out of combat, or slowly in combat, provided appropriate power is applied.
Full functionality restored. Can stand up to other sub-capital class ships for short periods of time.
Shield generator recharge maxed with AM capacitors, frequency boosters and power coils. Recharges quickly out of combat, or at a decent pace during combat, provided appropriate power is applied.


This is a direct equivalent to maneuverability in battle. It should be noted that fighters are capable of hitting larger ships 100% of the time; they only roll if firing at specific portions. Their shot hits regardless. Maneuverability is therefore only applicable against ships of equal or greater size.

Many or most maneuvering thrusters critically damaged and malfunctioning; disabled by engineers to keep hull integrity intact.
Auxiliary steering repaired to some degree of functionality.
Auxiliary steering fully repaired. Performance boosted to critical levels.
Nacelle maneuvering thrusters repaired. Primary engine swivel mounts restored to former functionality.
Nacelle thruster shield generators replaced and strengthened; dedicated crew assigned
Primary and auxiliary maneuvering thrusters AM-enhanced for maximum performance.

Third SCAMPS core added
Fourth SCAMPS core added

Damaged beyond ability to generate thrust. No warp capability. Ship unable to accelerate at any appreciable rate.
Primary engines minimally repaired. Slow engine thrust. Low max top speed. Range limited to nearby stations/moons over the course of days. Warp power restored. Warp mainframe crudely constructed. Only Warp 3 attainable.
Primary engines repaired to normal strength. Moderate engine thrust and top speed. Can travel optimally throughout a star system without warp. over the course of days. Warp power upgraded. Max output still below nominal; systems semi-recent and still crude. Warp 7 attainable.

Revitalization equipment restored. Doctors now capable of reviving dead crewmates. Robosurgery wing rebuilt. Missing limbs are no longer an issue. Powerful bio-regrowth equipment and materials installed and available for use. Can heal soldiers in combat within minutes, provided they have a functional brain.


Each level above minimum enables an extra major repair each month. Alternatively, the ability can be unlocked to "focus" larger groups of engineers in the same area.

Surviving engineers are displaced; difficult to reach critical systems. Few supplies and general decimation. Capable of up to three major repairs per month.
Multiple hull breaches; primary areas sealed, critical structural framework functioning. Running on minimal capacity.

Minimal thrusters functioning. Capable of decoupling from Nemesis and flying short distances. Now functions as "Escape Bridge".
Warp-capable: can travel at speeds of up to Warp 4, enough to cross the galaxy in a bit over four centuries. Stocked enough for crew survival over the course of three months. Do the math.
Point defense systems installed. Can now fend off a few small fighters or a small quantity of missiles. Small-scale beam weaponry installed. Can go toe-to-toe with gunships, provided it dodges well. Maneuvering thrusters upgraded. Capable of dodging most primary attacks from large vessels.
