What is the "official" ruling when a captured immortal scout attacks an immortal base?
We houseruled that when there was only two immortal ships left, they would lose immortal the turn after(they "lose" immortal after 5000 turns).

RAW is that neither side can damage the other, so you can keep rolling dice forever or the SC retreats.

Your house rules does seem reasonable though.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

If the attacker can't bring the fight to a conclusion, my ruling is that the attacker has to retreat. A few reasons:

- There will be times when the defender can't retreat (SYs, etc.)
- The attacker should have brought more ships
- It is already very hard to defend in this game.
