Card Text[]

"While attacking, after you roll your attack pool, you may exhaust this card to choose 1 defense token. If that token is spent during this attack, discard that token."



Question:  If I use Intel Officer to choose a defense token that was spent during an earlier step of the current attack (ie. Thermal Shields), is that defense token discarded?

Answer: No. Intel Officer only affects defense tokens spent after the card text is resolved and will not affect defense tokens that were spent prior to its timing window.[1]

This Upgrade Card has to be exhausted before Attack Step 3: Resolve Attack Effects. Its effect triggers during Attack Step 4: "Spend Defense Tokens"
