Known Issues

• If you set two teams to be allied with each other, don't forget to change the team goal from Destroy. If you forget, your allies will not shoot at you. It will look silly on the main screen.

• If an enemy is set to ignore you, they will shoot at you. They will not chase you.

• When you play a scenario, on the Select Skirmish screen, your teams and their positions will not show up in the grid. This does not mean they are being ignored — when you click Play Game, your teams will show up in the locations you set.

• If the enemy captures all of your ships, you may hear a voice say “I surrender” but the mission does not end as it should. If you then click on Fleet Control icon, Starfleet Command may hang.
