Science Upgrades

Science Upgrades All Facilities have a basic Science capability in order to gather and evaluate information about it's surroundings. Scientists rely on the vessel or base's sensors and probes, as well as away teams to gather information; from there it is transferred to one of the relevant labs for analysis.

Higher Science Ratings equate to better systems no only in gathering information, and also specialized labs to evaluate the data.
