A life of exploration invariably leads to encounters with unexpected life. This unexpected life can lead to unexpected injuries as well as novel diseases. Every living quarters includes a basic infirmary, but those are not equipped for every variety of injury or disease. Similarly, an infirmary is not equipped to treat the number of badly injured survivors from a badly damaged ship or planet-wide epidemic. A Medicae Deck offers the facilities and staff to address both of these possibilities.
Diagnostics and Treatment: The Medicae Deck adds a +20 bonus to all Medicae Skill Tests performed within this Component. The number of patients that may be treated without penalty is increased to three times the character’s Intelligence Bonus.
