Stealth

Hiding in space can be hard, but it makes for interesting stories.

The following stealth levels are possible:

Stealth Description
Standard Reduced emissions, can be retrofitted, but no built from the ground up.
Good Ship has been designed to be stealthy. A major refit may get to this level.
Excellent Only ships designed from the start to be stealthy can get excellent stealth.
Fantastic Truly stealthy ships, very poor at everything else.

Stealth reduces the effective size of the ship by the following amounts.

TL Standard Good Excellent Fantastic
9 -1 -2 -3 -4
10 -2 -4 -6 -8
11 -3 -6 -9 -12
12 -4 -8 -12 -16

See Starship Sensors for details on how to spot things.
