I have a question.

If a ship is sitting in an Asteroid hex, and fires out of the hex into the next adjacent hex which in this example is open space with a target ship in it. is there any modifier for the shot? it says in the rules that when a ship fires into an asteroid hex. I have ruled in my game that if you are sitting in a asteroid hex you pay the penalties for shooting out...I may be wrong.

Plesae advise.

You are correct.

The most recent version of (6B3), which was considerably shortened by the addition of the rule (4A4), says:
Quote:
When firing a direct-fire weapon through one, two, or three asteroid hexes (including the hex of the firing unit and target unit, unless they are the same, in which case, count only one), add one to the die roll (4A4).

Note that this is cumulative. So, if you are firing through four asteroid hexes, the modifier would be two, not just one.
