Weapon focus and starship combat


Rules Questions

So... can you take weapon focus in starship weapons?

If so, would that be a class in itself, or would you need to break it down? Is so, how?

Light/Heavy/Capital?
Direct fire/Tracking?
Both? e.g. Light tracking weapons

From a balance point of view, starship combat seems to be in about 1/2 the scenarios and a maximum of one encounter, so having just weapon focus (starship weapons) would seem probably okay.

Looking at how the other weapons are arranged, each type has a table to it. (basic melee is table 7.1) I note all the starship weapons appear in the one table (9.2 Starship Weapons) - which would seem to agree with that as well.

As this is the rules forum. Since there is no way to get weapon proficiency with starship weapons you don't have the prerequisite to take weapon focus with it.

As a GM if you want to sell me on spending a feat for +1 on starship weapons I'd be fine. But its not in the current rules and I wouldn't expect it to appear anytime soon.

Good point about the proficiency. Although that almost begs the question about how all characters are proficient with all ship weapons :-)


If you are in a one-man ship, do you act in every phase or just one.


Ah that's the thing; when no one is proficient, everyone is proficient.

You can act in only one role, plus one minor crew action.
