Pilots can reinforce to angle their deflector shields and increase the defensiveness of a portion of their ship. When a ship performs the action, it gains a reinforce token with either the fore or aft side faceup.
A ship is reinforced while it has a reinforce token assigned to it. Reinforce tokens are circular, green tokens. While a reinforced ship defends, if the attacker is inside the full arc specified by the reinforce token and not in the other full arc, the token provides an effect. The attacker needs to be in the defender's arc for the fore reinforce token or be in the defender's arc for the aft reinforce token.During the Neutralize Results step, if the attack would hit and there is more than one / result remaining, one result is added to cancel one result.
