Does Steadying the ship cost Helm Power?

It seems like there is no distinction between this and dodging which was mentioned in another thread... but it seems cruel to eat up 1 power on this action.

All helm actions use helm power, including dodging, as far as I know. Make sure to do your piloting as the last thing in a phase whenever possible.

In most cases, avoiding intense turns that cause a lot of OOC is not too tough: it is especially important to use side-slipping. All that said, nobody said piloting is easy, and if they did, they're nuts

Thanks...for the answer.... once the players started playing they saw the OOC wasn't that bad... and they figured out to start doing their manouvers at the end of phases. With missles coming at them and OOC going up based on how bad you missed the manouver i think they panicked a little

Side-slipping though? Hmmm....i guess it's back to the rule book. I think i know what it is but i don't remember reading it.

I'll probably post a bunch of questions shortly that came up on our first 2 sessions. Need to go back through the rulebook to see if i can find out what all i screwed up on.

Feel free to fire away with the questions! I don't consider myself a Battlestations "expert", but the rules do finally makes perfect sense to me.

Great game!

Hey Alex,

Thanks for the reply. You might not consider yourself an expert but you nailed it on the head.

Slideslips aren't described in the core book. They are in the Galactic Civil War book. That said, they're not exactly a complicated maneuver.
