Does the Delta wormhole generated by the Ghosts flagship trigger the technology dimensional splicers? This would effectively give that ship a free hit in every combat.

Yes, one free hit. Delta wormhole is a wormhole, even if the flag ship generated it.

Abilities are pretty explicit if only particular types of wormhole are affected (like Creuss Slipstream faction sheet ability, that calls out alpha and beta).

Also note that PDS shots can now fire through wormholes. So, if you get PDS II and place a couple of PDSs in your Home System, that's potentially two or three more hits before combat. And if you can manage to get assault cannon (I did, using the Jol-Nar promissory note, as my 1 red tech needed to get to Dim. Splicer), then the Creuss flagship becomes a beast.

The drawback to this, however, is that other people can use Light/Wave Deflector (or similar) to pass through the flagship's wormhole to easily get to your Home System.

Keep on track, he needs clarification with a tech card, not a strat guide.

You're right. No tangential discussion allowed. Board games are serious business.

Absolutely. I hate tangential discussions. There was this one time I posted on something, and it went off in all sorts of directions. Very annoying. We should only post if it directly responds to the OP.

Sorry to take this off on yet another tangent, but we are deep into Poe's Law territory...

Maybe that particular discussion was spliced by a wormhole? Perhaps even the one generated by the Hil Colish itself?
