So, the question is, with a Talent that halves the time of Astrogation checks, or halves the cost of adding mods, when you increase the ranks, are you also doubling that effect as well? So, 2 ranks in the Astrogation-related Talent would result in checks that take 1/4 the time?
I'm assuming yes, but it seemed like a good idea to check!
Going by the text of Galaxy Mapper on page 93, the decrease in time wouldn't stack. The only benefit to taking talents like those multiple times is the ability to remove additional setback dice. Same with Gearhead directly below it.
Ha, I see my issue--the Talents in the list have different bits than in the Talent Tree, which is where I was looking. Though, Galaxy Mapper does say half "normal" time, which was silly of me to miss, but the bit on Gear Head isn't actually in the Talent Tree. When you mentioned it, I checked the list though, and boom "Does not Stack".
That probably should be on the tree itself.
