The Jury-Rigging skill is used to create or change something in such a way as to make it work in a form that it was not designed to do. Jury-Rig can be used to repair or temporally force something to work that is broken or damaged and in need of repair.
When attempting to use the jury-rigging skill to temporary make repairs, this reduces the rating of the system, and allows you to make the Repair check as a standard action. The net hits needed to fix the system is divided by the net hits the jury-rigging roll. However, a jury-rigged repair can only fix a single problem, and the repair only lasts until the end of the scene. The jury-rigged item must be fully repaired thereafter, and cannot be jury-rigged again until it is fully repaired.
- Kit-Bash – You can use spare and sometimes not so spare parts to create something needed in the moment. This always results in the breaking or at least the damage of an object or system to get the parts needed to create a new item. The item normally will have limited uses set at the time the item is created.
- By-pass – A damaged system still uses the power it is assigned. By performing a by-pass you can by-pass the damage system and route that power around the damaged area
- Re-Route – Some systems just use a lot of power and are not needed at times. By re-routing the power elsewhere, you can use it to power other ship systems. Re-Route is also used to give addition power to area that may need them.
