Resistance to subsystem offline scales as a percentage of your remaining Crew, based on your Subsystem Repair skill.
You must keep your current Ready Crew % high in order to gain full benefit from your "Subsystem Repair" skill.
This is going to be an issue for Odyssey pilots; simply because of the crew issues - it's a 2500 person crew that can lose 20 percent from an attack that doesn't even damage the hull. Crew death/injuries appear to still being calculated as a percentage instead of flat numbers; which nullifies the benefits to having a high crew value.
I mean, it's strange to have my Odyssey with a half dead crew when my hull didn't even dip below 90 percent in the process.
