Overview for commands by ArmadaMatt. Feel free to download and make a hard copy for personal use.

Rule Edit

A ship can resolve the effect of a command by spending a command dial and/or command token with the matching icon at the appropriate time. The effect of the command is based on which component was spent.

Rules Clarification Edit

If a ship wants to spend a command dial and token of the same type, it has to spend them simultaneously.

Types of Command Edit

Icon Command Navigate Navigate Command


Icon Command Squadron Squadron Command


Icon Command Repair Repair Command


Icon Command ConcentrateFire Concentrate Fire Command

Special Rules Edit

  • A ship cannot resolve the same command more than once per round.
  • A ship can spend both a command dial and a command token to combine their effects. Doing so counts as a single resolution of the command. For example, a ship can increase its speed twice by spending a Icon Command Navigatecommand dial and a Icon Command Navigate command token.
  • A player can resolve numerous commands in the same round, such as by spending a Icon Command Repair command token and a Icon Command Squadron command token during the “Reveal Command Dial” step of activation, and then spending a Icon Command Navigate command dial during the “Determine Course” step of movement.
  • A ship can resolve a command and choose not to produce its effect. It still counts as resolving that command, such as for the purpose of triggering upgrade cards.*
