Setup: Place obstacles as normal, excluding the station. Then, the second player places the station in the setup area beyond distance 1 of all obstacles and beyond distance 5 of the first player's edge. The station is an armed station; place the Armed Station card near the second player's ship cards.
Special Rule: The first player's ships and squadrons cannot resolve the armed stations effect to discard damage cards or recover hill points when they overlap it.
Once per round, instead of activating a ship, the second player can perform 1 attack with the armed station.
