One of a players has an interesting read on the Weapon Energy Focusing Ship.
A high ranking captain doesn't have any to shoot at within his arc. A lower ranking captain has the Weapon Energy Focusing Ship. His claim is that the higher ranking captain fulfills the condition of the card: "ship that has not yet attacked this round."
Is this accurate? Or did the captain without a target attack nothing and therefore can't be used to boost the attack?
Shooting is never mandatory. If a captain forgoes his attack because he can't or chooses not to, they fulfill th eenergy focusing ship requirements just find. It's exactly the same as the rulings on STAW:Barrage of Fire
