Always confused about what to do with Derranna next, I finally settled on a plan to run with once she completes scanning skills tomorrow.
First she is going to upgrade some Learning skills that have been languishing.
1. Empathy V
2. Spatial Awareness V
3. Presence I
4. Presence II
5. Presence III
6. Presence IV
7. Focus IV
Then, in order to be able to build tech II transport ships and the like, as well as Fighters and someday capital ships, I'm going to train up Capital Ship Construction and Industrial Construction to level IV.
That will take about 26 days and keep me from wondering what next for my trusty sidekick.
