Can a combat super crisis card that has a civilian ship in its set-up evacuate a prepared civilian ship from the New Caprica board onto space around the Galactica?

1 Answer 1


No. From the rulebook (pg. 15):

During the Prepare for Jump step of every subsequent New Caprica Crisis Card, when an evacuation icon appears, the current player takes one civilian ship from the top of the Prepared Civilian Ships stack and moves it to any space area with a viper launch icon.

There's no mention that it can happen any other way.

To be honest, I'm surprised that there is even a combat set-up card in the New Caprica Crisis deck that would have a civilian ship on it, although I don't have it in front of me to check. Can you show an example of the card you mean?

I wonder if you've switched back to the regular Crisis deck after Galactica returns? You should be continuing to use the New Caprica Crisis deck. Additionally, just some extra info from pg. 16:

During the New Caprica phase, ignore any effect that would place, destroy, or move ships in any space area around Galactica or centurions on the Boarding Party track, until the Galactica returns to orbit (see page 17).

  • Sorry, it was a super crisis card. Question updated.

  • Thanks for the update. I still think the answer is still no :) There's nothing in the rules that state it can happen any other way than using the evacuation icon on New Caprica crisis cards.

  • More importantly, your notes from page 17 explicitly forbid other effects from placing ships, so the combat super crisis won't change the configuration of ships (though in theory it could add other effects, e.g. if it said "FTL can't be activated until you jump").
