Icon Polyvalent
Description: You have skills, they're always useful...
Learned by: Icon Andie 3 If Icon Mush: Kept

Polyvalent is one of Icon Andie's key skills which lets him/her compete in productivity with the missing Icon Finola. Since, without Finola, the crew lacks a primary, dedicated researcher, the Icon Biologist bonus allows Andie to take up Finola's mantle labcoat.

Polyvalent is also the cheapest way (in terms of XP) to acquire a Icon Diplomat for Exploration purposes, which considerably increases a given ship's chances to find Icon Starmap Fragments and reach Eden.

Polyvalent is the best skill for enhancing trading; the bonus from Icon Diplomat and Icon Botanist can be combined on one person, instead of on Icon Finola/Icon Janice and Icon Ian/Icon Hua separately.
