Ship Phase is the second phase of a game round after Command Phase. The first player activates one of his ships. Then the second player activates one of his own ships. Players continue taking turns in this manner until all ships have been activated.
- Players cannot activate ships that have already been activated.
- If a player has no unactivated ships remaining, he must pass his turn for the rest of the phase.
When a player activates a ship, he performs the following steps in order:
1 . Reveal Command Dial
2 . Attack
3 . Execute Maneuver
The next phase is Squadron Phase.
