Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Starships of the Galaxy
Owning and operating a used Starship can be a risky business. Though Used Starships are cheaper and easier to get hold of, they often develop their own unique quirks that prevent them from operating at full capacity. Whenever a Used Starship moves -3 steps on the Condition Track (To the point where the vessel is taking a -5 penalty on attack rolls, Skill and Ability Checks, and Defenses) or lower, the used ship's Condition becomes Persistent. Until the ship receives repairs (Using the Repair Object application of the Mechanics Skill), it cannot move up the Condition Track by means of the Reroute Power Action (Although other means, such as Jury-Rigging, can still be used).
Additional Unreliable Starships Edit

Some Starships aren't reliable. They are, in fact, notoriously unreliable. They require constant maintenance and might have systems failing in the middle of battle. A GM might decide a Starship is Unreliable for any reason: he or she might require a Starship to be Unreliable as the price of making it part of a character's Destiny (See Starship-Linked); a Starship might have been modified one too many times; or, it might not be receiving the maintenance it requires. Whatever the reason, once a Starship is unreliable, it causes problems.
Any time an Unreliable ship is moved a step down its Condition Track, you must roll 1d% on the below table, Unreliable Results, to determine the result. (If your Starship ends up at least 3 steps down the Condition Track as a result of this movement, instead roll 1d20+80 to determine the result.) A character can spend a Force Point to reroll a bad result, but must accept the second result, even if it's worse.
A Glitch takes a Full-Round Action and a DC 15 Mechanics check to repair. A Failure takes 1 minute and a DC 20 Mechanics check to repair. A Disabled system takes 1 hour and a DC 25 Mechanics check to repair.
