I have found through painfully expensive testing that all of the Abilities in the game that increase your starships hull resistances stack. The highest I’ve gotten my hull to resist all incoming damage was 70.9%.

However, that is an impractical number to maintain due to the requirement of multiple uses of defensive abilities with long cool-downs and short duration. Instead, I’ve found it much easier to maintain an average 47.9% to 57.6% all damage resistance on my ship’s Hull. I couple that with a 65% all damage reduction on my shields. In times of real danger, I can increase my shield resistance to 75% all damage reduced for 15 seconds.

Now, there is a trick to this, but it sacrifices DPS slightly. In the build I’ve been discussing, I’ve actually swapped out the two copies of Emergency Power to Weapons for two copies of Emergency Power to Auxiliary. The increased Auxiliary power is extremely useful for all the healing abilities you will need and the Auxiliary abilities that add to your hull damage resistance.
