Destroying Ships

A ship is DESTROYED after it has a number of damage cards that equals or exceeds its hull value. A destroyed ship is placed on its ship card.

  • After a ship is destroyed in a phase other than the Engagement Phase, it is removed from the game.
  • If a ship is destroyed during the Engagement Phase, it is removed after all ships that have the same initiative as the currently engaged ship have engaged, which is called simultaneous fire.
  • If an effect triggers after a ship is destroyed, the effect resolves immediately before the ship is removed.
  • A destroyed ship's abilities remain active until that ship is removed unless the ability specifies a different timing for the effect to end, such as "until the end of the Engagement Phase." Such effects remain active until the end of the specified time.
