I was hoping the Federation Science vessel would have a special ability like this rather than the brawler we got with the Equinox.

I would run a Flagshipped USS Grissom in every fleet as Picard's new ride.

Yeah, that's a massively overpowered ability. All the tokens next to this ship are next to every other friendly ship within Range 1-2? Hells yes that's amazing. Far too amazing though.

Consider instead, "When you take the [scan] action, put a [acan] token by each friendly ship in range 1-2."

Or, give a Scan token to a friendly ship within 1.

No no, you misunderstand. Every ship has access to the Grissom's tokens but they are not permanent. If the Enterprise uses the Grissom's Battlestations its gone until the Grissom does another Battlestations action. Basically friendly ships can steal the Grissom's tokens.

We understand what you meant. Maybe you aren't aware of how incredibly strong that is. Imagine running that ship with Picard, Data, and a Flagship. That means that, every turn, it can get two evades, a battle stations, and a scan/target lock. Allied ships become INCREDIBLY powerful, especially because the scan tokens would stack with each other, and the allied ships can spend their actions on other things (Scotty) and still benefit from a fully BSed, TLed, and Scan-tokened attack.

Perhaps just share Target Lock and Scan then. It doesn't really make any sense to share Evade or Battlestation as those are personal ship actions.
