So I have a quick question regarding the "Claiming Ships" step of the combat phase. If you decide to claim a ship from another player, do they take your ship in it's post battle condition while you take theirs?
I.e. do you upgrade and they downgrade? (if the ships are of different value that is)
Or do they still keep their ship class but you just upgrade?
From the FAQ:
Q: When claiming an enemy ship after a battle, what state is
the ship in?
A: You claim the enemy ship in its current state including
damage and any Ship Mods. it may have had. Crew
however you bring along from your previous ship.
Q: The rules don’t mention the ability to transfer Crew to a
captured ship – can I?
A: Yes, the rules aren’t clear on this. When you claim a ship
you fill it with Crew from your old ship.
