That is a little wonky, but it's identical to Warhammer and other tabletop miniatures games, so it's not something I mentally file as an issue with the game. Usually with something like that, we round towards the defender if it's close and there's disagreement.

I kind of adore how you basically start with nothing in a campaign. The big furry dude doesn't even have a gun for my first play.

Are all the medical red items allowed to be used on other crew members? I can't tell, the icon reference rules seem to say it has to be used on yourself?

I thought there was a reference to being base to base with another character. You can revive downed teammates with medical supplies so I wouldn't see why not.

I'll look again, I probably missed it. I don't think it's in the icon reference sheet but there's probably a bit on it in the actual rules themselves.

I've always used them that way. Not sure if that's correct.

What is "base contact"? It's not a concept... anywhere in here but it says search can only be performed on things in base contact. I assumed this meant orthogonal adjacent like melees.

It's taking for granted miniature game concepts and maybe the rules have some issues since First Born presents square measurement first and Core Space utilized open measuring by default.

It just means base touching, I'd include diagonal personally but I haven't read the First Born rules yet.

Edit - if melee is just orthagonal, searching likely is too.

I played my first scenario this evening. Good experience overall, I think the rules are kind of all over the place but there's little enough to them it's fine. It's pleasingly tight---your crew melts on contact with the enemy if they're standing out in the open or some bad event card throws a wrench in. My big chewbacca dude had to stride in and turn a first born to jelly, but not before two drones and a liege melted the shitty crewman character they give you in the set ("Wade"). Dude only has a single skill point! Anyway, I rezzed him and he ran out the airlock but I only made it to the end of the second alert status and I was feeling the heat.

On first blush, the strongest thing about this game is that it really knows how to constantly deliver treats to the player. The equipment variety is really out there, especially the wild first born stuff. I was on the edge with my captain character who had a dyson gun that absorbed 3 hits... and had to survive a final shot from a drone that would have blown her up if it had caused a hit.

I was very surprised when I discovered that adjacent / engaged only referred to orthogonally. I had always treated diagonal as also engaged but they must have their reasons.

It sort of makes sense of melee. I think with how few squares there are on the board it'd be hard to maneuver if it was diagonal.

In game related stuff, I went through an off season phase (SHOPPING). I put together a combo for not-Chewie that gives him 3 attack reflects before exhausting and also a once per game exhaust free move. It's clobbering time.

I just punched the utility boards. Exosuits? Aliens style mounted guns? Yes please.

Yes, those are totally new to the system and look awesome. I'm really stoked to try them.

That, along with the Ships of Disrepute expansion are the biggest additions to the overall system.

I think Core Space square version might be the actual game everyone has in their memory when they think fondly back with somewhat rose tinted glasses on Heroscape from their childhood with regards to complexity and variety.

Just found it, page 104 confirms you can use a medkit on an adjacent character.
