As per the title - If I follow a damaged ship from a convoy, have I now lost the rest of the convoy?

1- Does it make any difference if the damaged ship is now unescorted? Can I "catch up" to the convoy after dealing with the crippled ship?

2- If the answer is no, as I suspect, can I instead decide to pursue the convoy and roll up 4 fresh targets, rather than deal with the damaged ship? (Ie. Choose to attempt a Follow action on the Convoy, not the damaged ship?)

3- For that matter, can I follow the damaged ship, roll and discover that it's still under escort, decide not to attack, and roll to try and follow the convoy after all?

I don't know why this is suddenly confusing me. I've played this game loads of times. I must be having a brain hiccup.

Thanks guys!

You can Follow either the damaged ship(s) or the main Convoy, not both. You choose one and contact with the other is lost.

1. No and no.

2. Yes.

3. No. (Thematically, some time passes while the escort decides to escort the damaged ship(s) or abandon it; meanwhile, the main Convoy gets too far away).

I dunno, "Select, mate" sounds like it could be new, hip slang from down under.
