Hello everybody,

in one of my games as solorians i'm allied to rebels (only one ally
allowed!) ... anyway i want to start a sml/stress base with crystals! So i
made a base on one of his worlds, he send money/minerals, all went fine, but
now this turn: i build a prominence with cheap engines, without weapons,
shields etc. only engines! (for use him as stellar targeteer)

This turn my ship has been captured by crystals without battle, the
prominence has NO damage at all so he can't have captured him with X-Field
....

I asked crystal player about that ... he is also very surprised about that,
don't know what happened ...

Anyone can give a hint what has happened?

A totally helpless ship is automatically captured by an enemy at the
same point (which your Crystal 'ally' was because of his base). I
assume your own base has no crew, and hence the new Prominence was
empty?

When the base has no crew, 1 crew is automagically created and put on
the ship.

I think the main thing was the lack of shields and weapons. When you
blow away the shields and "disable" the ship (make it so that it can't
fire back or defend itself), you attempt a capture attempt. With 1
crew, that was amazingly simple (except if you were the lizards).

I believe that to be incorrect - unless it has changed recently. No
crew on the base -> no crew on the ship in my experiance.

Only sometimes... it's odd really. I'm not sure which way TIM
intended, but sometimes I get crew, sometimes not.

Have had both.
Most times, the ship don't get crew, but seldom there is make 1 crew
from thin air and put on the ship.
Same can happen if you let stay a crewless ship in space, that you get
crew after some time, but it is seldom.

Bye-Bye JoSch.
