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.

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. [10]
