Part of the design of Nayr Odyssey was to let players allocate points into their ship. Feel free to discuss your favorite strategy here. I know a lot of the playtesters preferred ship speed to outrun the Yaralons or high attack damage to deplete battleship shields. Personally, my favourite is Shield Toggle Initiative as it lets you use shields really efficiently and never get hit. Fighting the autonomous machines is a good way to grind.

The points allocation screen.
Ship InitiativeIncreases the relative frequency at which you get opportunities to turn your ship. Good for making fast turns or escapes.
Shield PowerIncreases the amount of shields you have. Shields don't run out as quickly and will survive more attacks.
Shield Toggle InitiativeIncreases the relative frequency at which you get opportunities to enable or disable your shields. Good for beginners to stop enemy attacks on a dime.
Cannons StrengthIncreases the amount of damage your cannon attacks do. The best defence is a good offense!
Cannons RangeIncreases the range of your cannon attacks. 
Cannons InitiativeIncreases the relative frequency at which you get opportunities to fire your cannons. Effective for depleting enemy shields.
Engines InitiativeIncreases the relative frequency at which you get opportunities to set the engine speed. Works in tandem with ship initiative. 
Engines Max SpeedIncreases the maximum speed your ship can go. Useful for escapes or hurrying to planets for more supplies.
