Can this card move a pilot out of the brig? Cos we identified a cylon, put them in the brig, and next turn they were able to get out straight away because of this card.


Also, when a treachery card or cylon space says activate all raiders or heavy raiders, or all cylon ships of one type, is this treated like when a crisis card activates said ship type, and launch ships where there are none, or include boarding centurions?

From what I can see this is a hotly debated topic.  I can't find an official ruling, the public seems to be 2 to 1 in favor of "no".


Since the card does not specifically mention otherwise excluded itself from the default "no moving someone from the brig" rule, I can't see that it was intended to over-ride that.  ("Pardon" qurom card specifically says it allow's the moving from the brig - similar questions likes Apollo jumping into a viper ability have been ruled "no").  


Since it is a later made card, it could be they intended it to allow the movement, but normal the "rule flaws" fall forwards not backwards.
