 Advanced Captain Skills can only be used by a ship's Captain, and only once per mission. When they are used, they will grant one or more members of the crew Conditions - radiation exposure, burns, decompression and various other ailments. For each Advanced Captain Skill you purchase, you must have one Basic Console Skill at Rank 2 - so in order to have 2 Captain skills you must have 2 different Console Skills at Rank 2, etc. All Advanced Captain Skills cost 2 character points. Advanced Captain Skills can only be used by a ship's Captain, and only once per mission.

 With this directive, success of the mission and the survival of the ship are placed above all other concerns. The ship's structural integrity systems are kept powered at all costs, compromising the bridge compartment'​s life support and safety systems. For 5 minutes (300 seconds), the ship becomes Invulnerable to all damage. At the end of the mission, an extra 3 Conditions are randomly assigned to the crew. With this directive, success of the mission and the survival of the ship are placed above all other concerns.

 When time is too short, and distance too far, the Captain can issue this directive to overcharge the ship's drives to breaking point, pushing against the very laws of physics to reach their destination in the nick of time. The acceleration becomes more than the ship's dampening systems can resist, causing bones to snap and veins to burst. The warp bubble around the ship thickens inwards, distorting space and time within the bridge compartment,​ and the ship almost vibrates itself apart under tidal forces. When this ability is used, all maneuvering systems are fully repaired, and the ship's Warp speed, Impulse speed and Turn Rate are massively increased beyond all reasonable limits. At the end of the mission, an extra 3 Conditions are randomly assigned to the crew. When time is too short, and distance too far, the Captain can issue this directive to overcharge the ship's drives to breaking point, pushing against the very laws of physics to reach their destination in the nick of time.

 All Captains know that the ultimate responsibility for their ship lies with them alone, and some brave souls are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to keep their crew alive. When the ship's hull has failed and its structure is coming apart, a Captain can issue this directive to save their crew first, and ensure that they hold it all together until everyone has reached the escape pods. When a ship is destroyed, a Captain with this skill can invoke it to draw the negative consequences onto themselves and up to 2 other crew members. Rather than each member of the crew being offered a card draw for a Condition, the Captain and their nominated crew members share out the card draws for the rest of the entire crew. So for a crew of six, if the Captain nominated 2 other crew members, they would each get 2 draws. All Captains know that the ultimate responsibility for their ship lies with them alone, and some brave souls are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to keep their crew alive.
