Ship Abilities:

Each type of ship has a unique special ability that can be used once per turn.

  • An individual ship die can only use ONE ability per turn, even if it changes number.
  • Using a ship ability does not count as an action (although maneuver and transport are used during a move action).
  • Ship abilities can only be used on your turn, and only by ships on the map. (Ships in the scrapyard and expansion ships can’t use abilities.)
  • You cannot change a ship number in the middle of moving that ship - for example, immediately before rolling for combat.


1 (Battlestation) STRIKE: attack space next to the battlestation

Strike gives you a single free move/attack of 1 space that must include an attack. It is possible to move/attack normally and also use strike for a second attack on the same turn.


2 (Flagship) TRANSPORT: carry ship as you move

Place one of your ships that is in any surrounding space on top of the flagship. Then use the flagship’s move action to move the flagship 1 or 2 spaces. Finally, place the transported ship in any empty surrounding space. A flagship cannot attack if it transports, but a transported ship CAN move and attack normally after it is dropped off.


3 (Destroyer) WARP: swap places with one of your ships on the map

Warp does not count as the destroyer’s move


4 (Frigate) MODIFY: change to a 3 or 5

After you modify, you can’t use the ship’s new ability this turn, since modify was the ship’s ability use for the turn


5 (Interceptor) MANEUVER: travel diagonally

Activating maneuver during your move action lets you go to any surrounding space as you move. This means you can travel diagonally as part or all of your movement. You CAN attack diagonally.


6 (Scout) FREE RECONFIGURE: re-roll the ship

If you roll a 6, roll again until you get a new number.


Void

At the start of your turn, for each of your ship dice on the void map tile, you gain +1 research.

Gaining research from the void does not use up any of your actions or special ability uses for your turn. Ships that earn you +1 research from the void can move and use special abilities normally that turn.
