Starbase

The Flagship can be upgraded by adding a new module at a friendly Starbase. Modules cost an amount of resource units based on their type and take one (1) day each to build and install.

While at a friendly Starbase; the Flagship can also refuel, repair any hull damage it has taken, recruit new Crew, and build ships for an escort fleet.

The designs for new module types can be discovered via alliances with alien species and by bartering with certain interstellar merchants.

Personal Items may also be purchased at a friendly Starbase.
