Will cheat death prevent destruction of a ship if it is destroyed while using the effect of suicide attack. I wouldn't think so, but someone brought this point up so I thought I'd make sure.

Cheat death has been confirmed to work with I Stab at Thee, so the answer in my opinion would be yes.

It absolutely can, but there is a special clarification coming to the FAQ shortly to explain how Cheat Death interacts with an "instant destruction" effect. The same will apply to the use of Cheat Death following a Warp Core Breach.

As a follow-up, here is the text added to the FAQ today:

If I play Cheat Death after my ship is instantly destroyed (e.g. Warp Core Breach, Suicide Attack), what happens?

In this case you would add Damage Cards one at a time until the number of Damage Cards is equal to your Hull Value - 1. All face up Damage Cards would still be flipped face down as per the card's text.

Hey guys, just a follow-up to this question: would one be able to put Kirk on a Jem’Hadar fighter along with Cheat Death, I Stab at Thee and Suicide Attack to do the following combo:

1: Action: Suicide Attack.
2: Overlap another ship and roll the 8 attack die.
3: I Stab at Thee to roll the 3 attack die.
4: Cheat Death to bring your hull to 1 remaining.
5: Next round, perform a green maneuver (to shed the aux power token).
6: Action: Suicide Attack.
7: Overlap another ship and roll the 8 attack die.
8: I Stab at Thee to roll the 3 attack die.

This would be one expensive fighter, but given the amount of dice you’d be throwing around, it may be worth it.

Parks says its legal, and the combo is very clever, but I am having enough trouble with Kirk on a Jem'Hadar ship, much less this mis-use of the cards. This is cheesy.

But this will not be an easy attack to pull off. Suicide Attack is not an easy card to perform.
