    Red and Green Squadron are going to fly and line up on the right side of the MC-80 in front of Luke's Squadron. Using the MC-80 as a shield.

    Edit: Learned something so this post is now null.

    For your measurements question; highlighted are the movement rings for Green squadron and the firing arcs and weapon ranges of the ISD. The ISD's antifighter weapons consist of 2 black dice, which are limited to the first (very dark) weapon range band. X-Wings are speed 3; I've added that, too.

    Ok, so please move Green Squadron near the debris. Red Squadron somewhere between the ISD near where you wrote the 3. Luke's Squadron fly downwards a bit away from where Red Squadron is going to end up so there is some distance between the three.

    ISD Impertinent trains its guns forward as far as possible, and begins shooting at the Mon Cal nearly dead ahead. Unfortunately, by the time the blasts reach the Rebel ship's shields, they've dissipated enough that the shields shrug them off with barely a flicker. It continues its pursuit, veering to port to keep the Mon Cal vessel in its sights!

    jvtqidtd185g.gif

    ISD Impertinent reveals a Concentrate Fire command, which it spends to allow it to roll an extra die on an attack this turn. Unfortunately, no enemy ships or fighters are in-range, and it already has a CF token, so nothing happens.
    It moves ahead at speed 2 (1-1), moving hard to port.

    @Betsuni is up - the Mon Cal MC80 Defiance activates, revealing a Concentrate Fire command. You have a Concentrate Fire token and a Squadron token available, and the [activated] ISD is in medium range in your port arc. You have a shot only on the foreward arc of the ISD. Luke Skywalker is in-range of the ISD to attack; no other squadrons are in-range to attack without moving - Red Squadron is about 3 pixels short and probably pretty angry about it. :D You might even say he's a bit red in the face ...

    I'll update the map later, but we can run a couple of items throughout the day ... :)

    After holding themselves in reserve, the X-Wings of Red Squadron slam their throttles forward and spring towards the bow of the Impertinent, firing a brace of proton torpedoes! The torps slam against the shields and explode!
    MC80 Defiance spends its Squadron token to activate Red Squadron, which can move into range of the ISD, in front and a little to port, and attack with 1 red die.

    Result is HH. Thanks, FFG Dice App!

    chyv7pgr3wum.jpg

    @Fuselage - do you want to spend one or more defensive tokens on this attack? You have Brace (damage / 2), Contain (prevent normal critical hit effect; not useful here), and 2x Redirect (take some or all of the damage on either starboard or port shield, instead).

    Green defense tokens (everything you have at the moment) turn red when spent, and come back at the end of the round. Red ones can be spent, but then they're gone for the rest of the game.

    Moving forward without spending defense tokens ...

    The main guns on the Defiance open up, trading long-distance shots with the ISD as it approaches!
    Admiral Ackbar is activated - the MC80 can only attack out of port and starboard firing arcs this turn.
    The ISD is at medium range of the MC80, allowing it to gather red and blue dice to attack, in its port firing arc. It therefore gathers 3 red, 3 blue dice, +2 red for Ackbar.
    The ISD has already activated, so Defiance activates; the MC80 may add 1 die of any color to its attack, and it adds +1 blue die.
    The MC80 spends its Concentrate Fire dial on this attack, adding 1 die of any color already there to this attack; it adds +1 blue die.
    The attack against the ISD is obstructed by the asteroid field, and so the Defiance must remove 1 die of its choice from the attack. -1 red die

    l8cm3kx7l27k.png

    Final attack is 4R5B.

    Results are:
    bjiu0kahfint.png

    ... and the Concentrate Fire token is spent to reroll one of the red dice.

    8pvqo0ob8ow0.png

    Final results are 7 damage, a potential crit is in-play, and 2 accuracy.

    @Betsuni you may choose up to two Defensive Tokens on the ISD to prevent @Fuselage from spending them. He has:
    Brace (damage / 2), Contain (prevent normal critical hit effect), and 2x Redirect (take some or all of the damage on either starboard or port shield, instead).

    Note that the more than one of the same type of token cannot be spent on the same attack, so at most Fuselage can spend 1 Redirect on this attack.

    Also, @Betsuni, when the Defiance moves, it's going to run into the debris field, so you'll take 2 damage on the hull zone of your choice. Which one do you want to take the hit?

    The Impertinent slews slightly to starboard, bringing it's port-side shields into the line of attack, but the concentrated barrage from the Defiance is too much, and the Star Destroyer's shields buckle under the assault. Turbolaser fire penetrates, slagging armor plates, while ion cannon shots send lightning skitterjagging across the hull. Near one of the Impertinent's main battery cannons, a plume of coolant boils off into space from a ruptured feed line.

    Meanwhile, the MC80 Defiance continues its inexorable advance through space, and the helmsbeing throws the controls hard to port - but it's not fast enough or far enough, and the mighty ship slowly slides into the debris of a previous battle. A significant chunk of CR90 bounces off the Defiance's shields, and while they hold, they are much diminished.

    7wcn1bndi4xf.gif

    i3tg3p31ff9a.png

    The Impertinent exhausts a Redirect token, moving 3 damage from the forward arc to the port arc (3 -> 0).
    The remaining 4 points of damage are applied to the forward arc, dropping the shields (2 -> 0) and applying 2 hull damage (14 -> 12); since a crit is active, the first damage card is dealt face-up.
    okeuklnh1jjc.png

    ... probably not gonna do much for Betsuni, unfortunately.

    MC80 Defiance moves to port as far as possible at speed 2 (1-1), and its final position overlaps the debris field.
    It takes 2 damage to its starboard arc.
    Defiance's activation is over.

    @Fuselage is up, with the RDR Insubordinant activating with a Concentrate Fire command. Unfortunately, it has no current targets; it can save it as a token (which would replace the Navigate token it currently has), unless it wants to spend the Nav token to change speed at this time.

    The RDR Insubordinant finds another gear and accelerates even as it reroutes additional power to its main guns. Meanwhile, Gamma Squadron advances up to the port side of the Impertinent, seeking cover under its guns.

    0msskrr2clm0.gif

    tviozgefsb4g.png
    RDR Insubordinant spends the Navigate token to change its speed to 3 (0-1-1), retaining the Concentrate Fire disk as a token.
    It moves straight ahead.

    Gamma Squadron activates, and then move forward just enough to stop out of range of the Red and Green X-Wing squadrons.

    @Betsuni you're up! Luke Skywalker and Green Squadron can activate in any order you wish (though it likely doesn't matter much, and you can just order them simultaneously).

    Green Squadron throttles back, seeking to maintain a favorable position between the Imps and the Rebels.

    Luke Skywalker and his escorts strafe the Impertinent, doing minor damage.
    w8nsk32s44xx.jpeg

    Result is H.

    Damage cannot be redirected, since Luke treats the ship as having no shields when he attacks. Brace reduces 1 damage to ... 1, and there’s no crit, so Contain does nothing.

    1 damage to the ISD.

    Green Squadron activates but remains in place.

    All commands have been locked in for this, the penultimate Ship Phase!

    Finally reaching the point of engagement, the eager pilots of Gamma Squadron accelerate their surprisingly nimble bombers to attack speed, blowing past the surprised pilots of Green and Red Squadrons, and dialing in their approach and launching a barrage of torpedoes! They splash against the shields of the Cruiser and explode!

    w136pf4octka.png

    ISD Impertinent activates, revealing a Repair command. It spends its Squadron token to order 1 squadron to immediately move and attack and picks ... hmmmm ... I guess Gamma Squadron. :)

    Gamma Squadron is unengaged, and so moves distance 4 to just off the port bow of the Mon Cal; it has shots on the forward and port hull zones, and shoots the port zone with 1 black die.
    hmdls47wz5xt.png

    Result is H.

    On defense, the Defiance has 2x Redirect, Contain (useless; no crit here) and Brace (useless; reduces 1 damage to 1 damage).

    @Betsuni for Redirect?

    Yes, Commander, I would like to redirect the damage to my starboard shields.

    Edit: Honestly I had to go look up the "sides" of the ship. That's why I knew I was right this time. Long ago someone told me that to remember the names of the sides that Red side is always Port because of the wine. But I messed that up so just remember why they gave the names to the sides. Port is names as such since that's where ships would dock and the "port" was on that side. Then the other side has to be starboard.

    Okay, but that's not an option. :D You can shift it to an adjacent hull zone, so damage on the port side (I GOT IT RIGHT THIS TIME! WOO!) can be either moved to the forward hull zone or the aft hull zone (or left in place).

    Energy is quickly shunted around onboard the Defiance, and power is stolen from the rear shield projectors to reinforce the PORT side, which remains at full power after the explosions die away. This is good, as they come immediately under fire from the ISD Impertinent's main batteries!

    caow3fwppsbm.png
    ISD Impertinent declares an attack against the MC80 Defiance, using its forward battery against the MC80's PORT side.
    The attack is unobstructed at long range, so the Impertinent gathers 5 red dice for the attack.

    o3wk5kcjgl7q.png

    The result is ... A. Wow. I'm guessing that @Fuselage isn't going to want to waste the Concentrate Fire token rerolling a die on this pile of suck. Please let me know if want me to, anyway.

    The bow shields on the ISD Impertinent flicker back into life - perhaps this affected the gunners' aim? - even as other shield quadrants diminish slightly. As the Impertinent slides forward through space, it finds itself mired in a small asteroid field ... and one of the swirling rocks impacts on the vessel's stern as it navigates, rupturing the cowling around one of the main sublight engines. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker and his escorts scramble out of the way of the approaching behemoth.

    4 Engineering points are spent to regen 1 shield point in the bow arc (2) and move 2 shield points to the bow arc from aft arc (2) (total: 4).

    Moving forward at speed 2 (1-1), the ISD turns hard to port and runs over an asteroid obstacle; 1 face-up damage card is dealt:
