Debris clouds are obstacles that act as hazards that can disrupt and damage ships.
While a ship executes a maneuver, if it moves through or overlaps a debris cloud, after the Check Difficulty step the ship gains one stress token. After executing the maneuver, it rolls one attack die. On a result, it suffers one damage.
While a ship is moving, but not executing a maneuver, if it moves through or overlaps a debris cloud the ship gains one stress token. The ship rolls one attack die. On a result, it suffers one damage.
While a ship performs an attack, if the attack is obstructed by a debris cloud, the defender rolls one additional defense die.
Huge Ship Effects[edit | edit source]
After a huge ship overlaps an obstacle, the obstacle is removed from the play area. Then the huge ship suffers an effect according to the type of obstacle it overlapped.
For Debris Clouds (and Asteroids), the huge ship suffers one damage and gains one stress token.
Then the huge ship continues to resolve its activation. It does not skip its Perform Action step.
