  • The Guardian Frame Shift Drive Booster was originally made available on April 5, 2018, but removed from the game only hours later after it was noticed that the Fuel Use Increase value was excessively high, in some cases preventing ships from being able to jump with the module active. Players who had already unlocked it through the Technology Broker were given a refund of materials. This was later fixed and the module was re-added in update 3.1 on June 28, 2018, but with the fuel consumption factor removed and jump range boosts slightly increased.
