Each ship has a number of defense tokens that can be used when defending against an attack to mitigate the damage it suffers.
After attack dice are rolled, modified, and the attacker spent his accuracy icons, the defender can spend one or more of his Defense Tokens during Spend Defense Tokens step. Defense Tokens are spent before critical effects are declared and take place.
If the defender’s speed is “0,” he cannot spend any defense tokens.
