An Evade is one of the Actions available in the game.
Pilots can evade to fly defensively. When a ship performs an Evade action, it gains one evade token. A ship is evading while it has at least one evade token. Evade tokes are circular, green tokens. While an evading ship defends, during the Modify Defense Dice step, it can spend one or more evade tokens to change that many of its blank or Focus results to Evade results.
- If an ability instructs a ship to gain an evade token, this is different than performing an Evade action. A ship that gains the token without performing the action can still perform the Evade action this round.
