The Imperial player attacks and destroys an X-Wing.
The Rebel player attacks in return and plays Brilliant Strategy. He draws Outmaneuver and No Escape. Can the rebel player play the Outmaneuver card to prevent the destruction of his X-Wing which the Imperial player destroyed in his attack?
The battles are simultanious i thought.
. . . give a ship.
You should read the rulebook about when people assign and block damage.
New South Wales
You can break down a combat round initiated by the Imperials as follows:
1: Imperials roll dice and play non-blocking cards
2: Imperials assign damage
3: Rebels play blocking cards
4: Unblocked damage is assigned to Rebel ships and Rebel ships at or above their threshold are set aside to indicate their destruction (but still contribute dice in step 5)
5: Rebels roll dice and play non-blocking cards
6: Rebels assign damage
7: Imperials play blocking cards
8: Unblocked damage is assigned to Imperial ships and Imperial ships at or above their threshold are destroyed along with the Rebel ships set aside earlier.
Given this sequence, it's clear to see that a card drawn by the Rebels in step 5 cannot be used to block damage, as they could only do that in step 3. The first time Outmaneuver could be used is in the next combat round of that theater.
This sequence is also the reason why the stronger defensive cards require a discard as extra "cost" instead of a saber clash die symbol like the stronger attacK/generic cards do - while blocking you have no roll to pay symbols with.
