Things that happen with Boarding Party
1. Enemy crew dies. This results in lower hull repair ability, lower ability to bring damaged systems back online, and slight decreases in overall system efficiency.
2. Systems go down. Sometimes one, sometimes more I love it when weapons and/or shields go down. I think this based off the opposing ship's ability to fight the boarders off and some random luck. Could be engines, weapons, shields, or auxiliary.
3. Catastrophic sabotage, what I call the sudden space explosion after the boarders come back. Usually happens on smaller vessels that have less crew. I guess it represents my boarders taking out most of the crew and blowing the ship up.
I just wish my boarders could capture the enemy ship and I could keep it...
Anyway I love this ability.
