Revision as of 16:46, 10 July 2019

When a ship executes a maneuver, the player uses a template to change the ship’s position. Each maneuver has three components: speed (a number 0–5), difficulty (red, white, or blue), and bearing (an arrow or other symbol). Each bearing is also further defined with a direction, including straight, left, or right.

Executing a Maneuver

To move the ship, the player follows these steps:
1. Take the template that matches the maneuver from the supply.
2. Set the template between the ship’s front guides so that it is flush against the base.
3. Pick up and place the ship at the opposite end of the template, sliding the rear guides of the ship into the template.
4. Return the template to the supply.

After moving the ship, the player checks the difficulty (color) of the maneuver.

Maneuver Difficulty

There are three levels of difficulty for maneuvers: red, white, and blue.

If the maneuver is red, the ship gains one stress token. If the maneuver is blue, the ship removes one Stress token and one Strain token.

A ship is stressed while it has one or more stress tokens. A stressed ship cannot set or execute red maneuvers, and it cannot perform Actions.

Increasing Maneuver Difficulty

If an effect increases the difficulty of a maneuver, a blue maneuver goes to white, and a white maneuver goes to red.

Decreasing Maneuver Difficulty

If an effect decreases the difficulty of a maneuver, a red maneuver goes to white, and a white maneuver goes to blue.

Maneuver Bearing

All maneuvers are categorized as either basic or advanced. Additionally, all maneuvers that begin by using the front guides are forward maneuvers.

Basic Maneuvers

The following bearings are for basic maneuvers. These maneuvers follow the standard rules for executing a maneuver.

  • Straight: The Maneuver: Straight (white) (straight) bearing advances a ship straight forward.
  • Bank: The Maneuver: Bank left (white) (left bank) and Maneuver: Bank right (white) (right bank) bearings advance a ship at a shallow curve to one side, changing its facing by 45º.
  • Turn: The Maneuver: Turn left (white) (left turn) and Maneuver: Turn right (white) (right turn) bearings advance a ship at a tight curve to one side, changing its facing by 90º.

Advanced Maneuvers

The following bearings are for advanced maneuvers. These have exceptions to the standard rules for executing a maneuver.

  • Koiogran Turn: The Maneuver: K-Turn (white) (Koiogran turn) bearing advances a ship straight forward, changing its facing by 180º. This uses the same template as the Maneuver: Straight (white) maneuver.
  • If the ship fully executes the maneuver, the player slides the ship’s front guides into the end of the template instead of the rear guides.
  • Segnor’s Loop: The Maneuver: Segnor's Loop left (white) (left Segnor’s Loop) and Maneuver: Segnor's Loop left (white) (right Segnor’s Loop) bearings advance a ship at a shallow curve to one side, then reverses its facing. This uses the same template as the Maneuver: Bank left (white) and Maneuver: Bank right (white) maneuvers.
  • If the ship fully executes the maneuver, the player slides the ship’s front guides into the end of the template instead of the rear guides.
  • Tallon Roll: The Maneuver: Tallon Roll left (white) (left Tallon Roll) and Maneuver: Tallon Roll right (white) (right Tallon Roll) bearings advance a ship at a tight curve to one side, sharply changing its facing by 180º. This uses the same template as the Maneuver: Turn left (white) and Maneuver: Turn right (white) maneuvers.
  • If the ship fully executes the maneuver, before the player places the ship at the opposite end of the template, the ship is rotated 90º to the left for a Maneuver: Tallon Roll left (white), or 90º to the right for a Maneuver: Tallon Roll right (white). Then the player places the ship with the hashmark on the side of the base aligned to the left, middle, or right of the end of the template, (similar to a barrel roll).

If a ship overlaps another ship while executing a Koiogran turn, Segnor’s Loop, or Tallon Roll, the ship partially executes the maneuver by using the rear guides as though it was executing the basic maneuver that uses the same template.

  • Stationary: The Maneuver: stop (white) (stationary) bearing does not move the ship from its current position. This bearing does not have a corresponding template. A ship that executes this maneuver counts as executing a maneuver, does not overlap any ships, does trigger the effects of overlapping any obstacles at range 0, and continues to be at range 0 of any objects it was touching before executing this maneuver.
  • Stationary maneuvers are not forward maneuvers.
  • A ship that executes a stationary maneuver always fully executes the maneuver.

At the start of any type of Reverse maneuver, instead of sliding the template between the front guides of the ship’s base, slide it between the rear guides. Additionally, when the ship is moved, the player slides the ship’s front guides into the end of the template instead of the rear guides.

  • Reverse Straight: The Maneuver: Reverse Straight (white) (reverse straight) bearing moves the ship straight backward. This bearing uses the same template as the Maneuver: Straight (white) maneuver.
  • Reverse straight maneuvers are reverse maneuvers, not forward maneuvers.
  • Reverse Bank: The Maneuver: Reverse Bank left (white) ( left reverse bank) and Maneuver: Reverse Bank right (white) (right reverse bank) bearing moves the ship at a shallow curve to one side, changing its facing by 45º. This bearing uses the same template as theManeuver: Bank left (white) and Maneuver: Bank right (white) maneuvers.
  • Reverse bank maneuvers are reverse maneuvers, not forward maneuvers.

Fully Executing a Maneuver

A ship Fully Executes a maneuver only when nothing prevents the ship from being placed at the end of the template. Even when a ship moves through another ship, which means the template is placed on top of that ship, the moving ship still fully executes the maneuver.

Partially Executing a Maneuver

A ship Partially Executes a maneuver when it is unable to be placed at the end of the template because it would overlap another ship. A ship that only Partially Executes a maneuver would follow the following steps:
1. Move the ship backward along the template until its base is no longer overlapping another ship’s base. While doing so, adjust the position of the ship so that the hashmarks in the middle of both sets of guides remain centered over the line down the middle of the template.
2. Once the ship is no longer on top of any other ship, place it so that it is touching the last ship it backed over. This may result in the ship not leaving its initial position.
3. The ship skips its Perform Action step.

Adaptive Ailerons Partial Exception

The Adaptive Ailerons maneuver of the TIE/sk Striker and the TIE Reaper includes a partial exception to the above, as FFG has explicitly stated that these ships do not skip their Perform Action step after they overlap a ship (or asteroid) as a result of the Adaptive Ailerons maneuver.

Touching as a result of an Overlap

A ship cannot attack a ship that it is touching because that ship is at range 0.
