Strength measures physical power and athletic ability. It’s the attribute used when fighting hand to hand, rather than with a gun. It also governs the ability to lift and carry loads, such as valuable tech, or a downed comrade.

People with low Strength scores are probably sedentary, belong to a physically weak race, or both. Those with high strength scores are athletic, and those at the top of the scale are probably athletic and also belong to a physically powerful race.
