Core Rules, page 256 (pg 262 of the pdf file): The talent description for Command Ship says that:
“When a character on the ship succeeds at a Direct Task to create an Advantage, they may always be assisted by the ship’s Communications + Command, and they may confer the Advantage to allied ships or away teams with whom the ship maintains a communications link.”
My question is should this really be a “Direct” Task? Or is it something else? The Direct Task, described in both the rules on ground (pg. 173) and starship (pg. 222) combat, does not create an Advantage.
Checking the old forum it looks like the word “Direct” used to be “Command” until it was noted that it should be a “Direct” Task in the Errata thread. It makes more sense (to me only maybe) that it would be a Command Discipline (plus whatever attribute applied) Create Advantage Task. Further, if it is a “Direct” task that can only be used once per scene, Seems like a Command ship that can only create one advantage for one other unit in a scene is not very helpful and not warranting a Talent.
Can someone help me out here?
Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide!
