I was wondering if it would be possible to expand on the rules of electronic warfare. Every race isn't going to be using the same computers, or even the same OS for their computers. I would think there should be a penalty against races whose computing systems are unknown, since while most computers will function exactly the same it will probably interpret data differently than ours.

That is a good idea. Though I would expect as relations grow, some of that penalty would be lost.

It could, Also if you capture an alien vessel you can try and glean information on their computer systems. Having a physical copy to test would probably greatly improve your ability to develop more effective scrapecode(virus, trojans, etc.) or just interdict their ability to target by ECM.

Hashing signals is one thing. Full out cyber warfare is another :)

Would Cyberwarfare be possible in Astra Imperia, or just minor ECM and ECCM?

You would probably need some sort of communications level.

Maybe there needs to be a new ground unit type. Along with some associated rules to use them :)

Though that's not exactly Electronic Warfare as the term is usually used.  EW is usually prevention of Data collection rather than interfering with the data once collected.   What you're really talking about is an expansion of SigInt more than EW,  though that's still a cool idea.

The boggosity of the universe tends towards maximum.
