tactical Specialisations


EMDAR detects other vessels in space based on their EM emissions. By analysing EM patterns it is possible to determine the position of vessels so that they can be tracked, scanned and if necessary targeted by weapons.

Weapons Direction

Torpedoes (guided missiles) are Endeavour's primary weapons system, having proven more more accurate at greater distances than bean weapons. Weapons direction involves managing the configuration, launching and tracking of torpedoes and probes.


Tactical is the base specialisation involving the configuration and operation of weapons systems
