Bonjour,

The Parts are needed to pass certain Navigation Card situations, when you draw a card which declares that you now have a 'mechanical problem' with your ship while you are flying and come to a new space. It may say something like 'Lose 1 Parts (or lose 2 Parts) or come to a Full Stop.' If you have no (Spare Ship Component) Parts aboard to spend (to fix the problem), you may be penalized, such as having to immediately end your turn's movement.

Therefore you constantly need to have some Parts to sacrifice, unless you purchase a ship upgrade that says "Ignore Breakdowns."

Thematically, the Parts mechanic is an homage to "Out of Gas."

Mechanically, there are a few situations in which having a Parts will get you out of trouble in flight. We've generally found that, given their cost, it isn't really worth it to spend a Part to keep flying while just doing a run-of-the-mill Job. But if you're in the middle of a critical run and need one, you'll be glad you had it.
