Rules Clarification Edit
When a ship’s speed is temporarily reduced, that ship’s speed dial is not changed. When this effect is resolved on an enemy ship and that ship changes its speed dial during the Determine Course step (such as with a command), the ship’s speed is temporarily reduced by 1 from the current speed on its dial. This includes a ship that increases its speed to the maximum speed on its speed chart.
This effect can be resolved on an enemy ship that is executing a maneuver from an effect such as Engine Techs. This effect is resolved before the Determine Course step of that maneuver and reduces the ship’s temporary speed by 1 to a minimum of 0.
