Crew Grade and NPRs

Postby Caplin on Thu 16 Aug 2018 23:49

I'm trying to understand some bits in SM #2 and 3rd Revised, and would appreciate some clarification.

07.00.01 in 3rd revised states:

07.00.01 Only NPR governments can have “Inept” crews.
When NPR governments, who start with a crew grade of
Green or Poor (see 16.11b in SM#2), build new ships they start
at inept instead of poor. In all ways other than the different
penalties, treat inept crews as poor.

Does this imply that *all* NPR governments, regardless of their philosophy or anything else about them, build ships which start at Inept? If not, I can't seem to find anything in SM #2 to clarify which governments do, in fact, start this way.

Any info on what the intent was here would be very much appreciated.
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.

Not all NPRs have new build Inept crews, just those NPRs who have a base grade of G or P in SM2 16.11b table (Base entry in the right-most column).

This was done since those races already have low-quality crews and rule 7.00.02 did not really make new build crews any worse with poor crews. The fix was to add the inept.
