Do transponders affect Target Lock??

Tue 23 Feb 2021, 10:20

I'm reading the rules on ship combat, and I can't tell how transponders are meant to affect the Target Lock action. The Detection box on page 190 could be read to mean that if a ship's transponder is on, the opponent can establish a target lock without having to make a COMTECH roll. If that's the case, the example combat on page 202 has it backwards in the 4th paragraph--the players' ship in the example would have to make a COMTECH roll, but the smugglers wouldn't.essay writer
Is there another interpretation I'm not seeing?

I think you are correct. A transponder signal gives you an automatic target lock on the ship. If the transponder is switched off, you need to make a comtech roll to lock on. In the example given, the players should have rolled comtech to get a lock on the smugglers.
