Hull is the remaining life of your ship. Every ships starts with the maximum of 30 hull points. Whenever your shields are pierced and you take damage to any compartment it lowers your hull count, as well as when any system is completely destroyed by fires or by boarding parties, in which case you lose 1 hull point.

Hull points can be repaired either by spending Scrap in a Store, or by using a Hull Repair Drone. There are also random events for fixing the hull, such as repair stations.
