I just played my first game of BSG (solo using the official fully cooperative rules). I've got the german edition so my card names might be a bit off...
In my version the "weapons control" locations says something like:
Action: Attack a cylon ship using the Galactica.
Is it possible to attack a raider or heavy raider with Galactica's guns? It doesn't say it has to be a basestar and in the show the Galactica is seen doing this IIRC...
I conceed that vipers are usually better suited for this job but what if:
- I'm out of vipers
- Raiders are about to attack a civilian ship an there's no viper to intercept them in time
- Or if I simply want to get a head start on those heavy raiders
