I have a couple of points about the Command Cards in Orion Attack.

Firstly, although there is a 'Baseline = 32' card, I find it odd that there is no 'Stopped' card, even though 'Stopped' is a valid speed for Fed Comm whereas 32 is not at present.

I therefore will be using the 32 card as 'Stopped'.

Secondly, why is there an 'Accelerate' card? Is not Accel performed using the 'me-too' rules, and therefore is not subject to the simultaneous written orders that these cards replace?

The Death probe can have a baseline speed of 32.
And as far as i know yes Accel and Decel are done as me too.

Thanks for that, Saved. IIRC, the Death Probe is fixed at Speed 32 [but I may be wrong].

The context in which I'm referring to Decel as not being me-too is this one:

As far as I know, Accel is me-too, Decel is not. Which begs the question, then, why is there an accel card? Hmm....

the Death probe can choose whatever baseline speed it wants (0,8,16,24,32) and you are correct about decel it is done at the time of movement.
