"At the GM’s discretion, some larger starships might have onboard recharging stations. These might offer recharging at low or no cost, but they typically take 1 minute per charge to recharge a battery or power cell."

— Core Rule Book p234

Our group wants to have a Starship - either a stock build or a custom build - that has one of these "onboard recharging stations" but I could not locate such rules in the Ship Builder rules of the Core Rule Book, nor in the Starship Operations Manual.

The GM Decides

You have already found the relevant rules, no need to keep searching. The GM has the discretion to say whether a ship has a charging station. The only way for you to know whether your ship does is to ask your GM.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Tristian In the SF games I have played, it was normal to recharge batteries in between adventures or in "safe ports". It usually didn't happen in adventures. Sure a charging station on-board would be convenient, but it isn't a practical requirement. \$\endgroup\$ Apr 12, 2022 at 14:16
