    Most Wanted?

    Not this again.

    Thrust Corrector (Saws)

    This feels like a missed opportunity to make an anti-bomb/mine card. Ships like B-Wings and E-Wings are hideously vulnerable to attacks that ignore shields.

    Alex Devy is secretly Top Tier at X wing

    Fast in a system is different from fast between systems. A sports car will get you to a mall pretty quickly. But a bicycle is faster once you're there.

    The REAL loser in 2.0 is R5-D8!

    Who doesn't want a range 5 date?

    What is a Tie/In?

    I love that the first armored battleship was called the "dreadnought". Just such a foreboding, bada$$ name.

    Corran only a 5!!!

    Vader hated Tarkin so much that he was willing to let the Death Star get blown up regardless of how bad it made Vader personally look. The Sith are the masters of aggression in all forms- even passive aggression.

    I think the show and the movies are meant for the same age range. This is a franchise for the 8 year old in all of us- regardless of whether we're 6 or 96.

    What is a Tie/In?

    Literally "the standard for fleet battles" because that's what the name meant. The "standard" ship would be a frigate- a ship that was below the line.

    ISO confirmation: can you spend multiple calculate tokens at once?

    Yeah, it's been said a few times on stream. And that's a nice way to make force users even more different- AFAIK, ion tokens do nothing to force regen. Luke will still be able to get a focus action _and_ a force token.

    What is a Tie/In?

    TIE stands for "Twin Ion Engine", and a whole heck of a lot of Imperial fighters have that type of engine. Hence many of them are "TIE (something).

    I didn't know this about the modern military, and that's kind of funny. In Ye Olde Naval combat (Napoleonic era) "Ship of the line" referred to a ship strong enough to stand in the "line of battle" (Ships used to literally line up across from one another and fire). Because these were the heavier ships, they were definitely _not_ the "standard issue" ships. They were generally reserved for experienced captains or commodores.

    That's a fair point, and what the heck happened to _that_ Vader? He didn't seem that scary even at Yavin.
