Mercury is my dog's name.
I like hats.
Played with the Rebel Transport and sadly it wasn't until the end of the game that I remembered that the ship moves AFTER all the small & large episodes. If that is the case, what is the point of the pilot skill of 3?
Is it just future proofing for other huge ships?
All huge ships will activate after normal sized (small and large) ships, but huge ships still activate in order of pilot skill. The Corvette will be out later this month and has a pilot skill of 4, so it will activate after all the normal ships, and after the Transport (which is to say, it will be truly last until we get some higher PS huge ship in the future).
Also, huge ships still shoot in their normal pilot skill window in the Combat Phase, so the Corvette will shoot during the same timing window as any other PS 4 ships. Obviously, this isn't an issue with the Transport (which has no weapons).
