A Focus is one of the Actions available in the game.
Pilots can focus to concentrate and expand their combat prowess. When a ship performs the Focus action, it gains one focus token. A ship is focused while it has at least one focus token. Focus tokens are circular, green tokens. A focused ship follows these rules:
- While a focused ship performs an attack, during the Modify Attack Dice step, it may spend a focus token to change all of its Focus results to Hit results.
- While a focused ship defends, during the Modify Defense Dice step, it may spend a focus token to change all of its Focus results to Evade results.
- A ship cannot spend a focus token to change Focus results to Hit or Evade results if it does not have any Focus results.
- If an ability instructs a ship to gain a focus token, this is different than performing a Focus action. A ship that gains a token without performing the action can still perform the Focus action this round.
