I've seen lots of discussion about this topic, but no answer to my question. Target ship(s) gets destroyed - check. Kat goes to sickbay - check. What happens to the Viper?
Since the card doesn't say anything, you could assume:
1. It goes back to the reserves
2. It goes to the damaged reserves
3 It's destroyed.
I could construct lots of arguments as to why any of these are "correct" but which is intended?
