And this is why Hondo should be in all fleets¬†ūüėĀ. Or Comms Net...
Sadly the SSD does not care about this at all.

The SSD doesn't care that it can't use defense tokens for the first three turns?

Admiral Titus just got a boost too.

True enough - flagship stuck on the station with your grav well token for speed 0, and everyone else is at best speed/2.  So if there are any speed-2 ships in the enemy fleet, they can't deploy faster than '1', which Titus can bump down to '0'.  And they'll have raid tokens on their nav, so...

(Granted, I wouldn't put more points into it than that, because honestly all you are doing is GUARANTEEING that the enemy is picking one of your other two objectives...which can certainly serve its own purpose)

True. Titus is what, 2 points?

Those expert shield techs are interesting. Considering how common xi7 are, instead of only redirecting 1, you can just drop that damage instead. But they are crew, which is a competitive spot. And the xi7s are still doing what they want.. hmmm

Great for using redirects when you’re out of shields.  Like in HIE filled environments.

Doesn't everything else has to deploy at 0? Flagship 0 - > 0/2=0

Proximity mines

When a ship ends at 1 roll 2U and deal a facedown damage card per hit/crit

You can shot at them as they were squadrlns with 1 hull but they're not friendly  to anything.

To clarify: As an attack, you can shoot at ONE mine, treating it as a Squadron.

which basically adds a rule for you. In my colloquial terms:

 

 A ship has 2 Volleys a turn.

A Volley is:

1) An attack against a ship

2) Attacks against all squadrons in arc

3) An anti squadron shot at a single Proximity Mine

 

So clearing a dense minefield will take time and effort.

I assume that only ships can attack these? It would be a bit too easy when squadrons can just destroy them.

Where does this come from? And do mines have their own token? So a squad with Strategic won't be able to move them as they can Mines from the objective minefields? 

2U = 2 blue?

From a picture of the campaign rules. It is via WhatsApp so not sure how to share here without doing that boring stuff of getting a new account of a web platform of some kind

The ambush one isnt too bad with custom commanders or if your flagship is Corvias... because then it can just, redeploy.

...but then you've put your flagship on a Raider, soooooo...

For some commanders, thats not as big of an issue, like Motti.

A redeployed "go hang out over there" mottie isnt too bad.
