Hi all,

Ok, I'm being really OCD on this but wanted to get official unofficial clarification.

When it comes to movement, I know only one point can come from Impulse engines. But is that one point for *all* impulse or one point each? I'm sure it means one point for all, but just wanted to make sure.

For example, let's say a given SSD has two or three impulse boxes. When allocating energy for movement, I can only get one point toward movement, right?

Thanks,
Chris

Yes, only 1 movement point can come from Impulse ---
No matter the Movement Cost, 1 Impulse gives you one move --

Yes, no matter how many impulse boxes your ship has, only one may be used for movement, and it will only move your ship one hex no matter the ship's movement rate. There is one interesting wrinkle, though. It your ship has six impulse boxes, you can use all six to generate EM, no matter the ship's movement cost. (Obviously, this only matters for DNs and BBs.)
