Abilities are a special type of Subsystem which grants special powers to the ship possessing them. Once chosen on level-up, abilities can be assigned to the right mouse button or to the Space or Q keys using the pairs of arrows found in the lower-right corner of the screen.

Unlike passive subsystems, abilities may not always be able to receive stars on all stats. Stats which cannot be enhanced with stars are denoted by a padlock symbol on the left side.
