Starship Attack Roll
An attack roll represents one starship’s attempt to strike another on its turn in a round. Most starships are armed with ranged weapons aimed by gunners.
When a starship makes an attack roll, roll 1d20 and add the appropriate modifiers. If the result equals or beats theg target’s Defense, the attack hits and deals damge. A starship’s attack roll is:
1d20 + gunners ranged attack bonus + range penalty + starship’s size modifier + targeting system’s equipment bonus.
As in character combat, a natural 1 on an attack roll is always a miss. A natural 20 is always a hit. A natural 20 also always threatens a Critical Hit.
