Captain's Edition adds a variety of new augments to FTL. These include Combat Augments, Support/Production Augments, and Contextual Augments.

Combat Augments can be activated when enemies become hostile and can be either offensive (such as lowering the enemy's shield power) or defensive (such as jamming the enemy's mind control). These augments cost power to use and can only be activated one at a time, unless you have the Internal Generator augment.

Support/Production Augments give you options to produce items at an Empty Beacon. They can be used to ensure that you always have an ample supply of ammunition and drones, to produce trade goods for scrap, or to repair your ship.

Contextual Augments provide blue options in certain situations and most will provide options at an Empty Beacon. They can be used to avoid hazards, to scout a sector, or to obtain quests.
