The Return Fire Program is designed to allow quick counterfire against attacking enemy ships. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Defensive programs are used to protect a starship against enemy action.

  • Return fire allows a ship's lasers to fire at enemy ships which fired at the ship in the immediately previous fire phase.
  • Use of this program also requires the target program, and advantages allowed by other programs (such as gunner interact) can be complimentary.
  • If more than one enemy ship is fired on, the multi-target program is also required.

Selected Computer Programs[edit]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Software within Charted Space is intentionally built to work under a number of different operating systems, different technology levels of computers, and to be extensively toughened for hard use under vacuum if necessary. [3]

The Software List: The computer software list, available at nearly any software vendor or port, indicates the various programs that are available. It shows space required by a specific program in CPU or storage, its price in MCr, and its title. Also shown is a brief overview of its effects. [4]

Software Authorship: Various requirements exist for individual characters producing existng or new programs. Such a course can save money, but may have some pitfalls. Program generation is explained elsewhere. [5]
