Statistics

Agility

Every ship has an Agility, which caps the Dexterity or Perception of the pilot.

Agi Meaning
1 Minimal, Cargo barges or weapon platforms, with minimal thrusters.
2 Poor, Under powered engines or bad ship design.
3 Average, Typical starship.
4 Good, ample thrusters and good design, though not designed for agility.
5 Excellent, designed to be agile from the initial design.
6 Superb, agility impacts other performance characteristics.
7 Fantastic, agility is the only driving focus of the design, all else is secondary.
8 Amazing, superb design coupled with single minded focus.

Given one of the design characteristics above (Minimal through to Amazing), the base agility of the ship is then modified by the ship's size, according to the chart below.
