An Elizabeth timeline situation came up (its the third section on the 1st timeline), where the Airship was to travel to her location and initiate combat, if necessary. It so happened that Elizabeth was in a location where a number of Founders forces were present. My opponent, being the Vox, played the Airship card in that combat, and wasn't sure if the can use the ability of that card to instantly move his Airship out of that engagement.
So, how does this resolve? a/ Combat happens, and if the Airship survives, it moves as per the Timely Arrival special rule b/ Airship moves instantly, canceling combat altogether
