Last night this question came up in our game - If a card in the verse is scanned and revealed to have an ongoing ability, does that ability immediately go into effect while still in the verse or do ongoing abilities only matter once the card hits the combat zone?
I don't see anything about this in the rules so that makes me think that ongoing abilities would be working right away once revealed but another player argued that since a ship isn't striking from the verse that ongoing abilities wouldn't work until the card was in the combat zone as well.
Some say “Ongoing:” which means it’s always active. Some say “’Verse:” which means the ability is only active while the card is in the ‘Verse. And some say “Combat Zone:” which means the ability is only active while the card is in the Combat Zone.
