Transit Racks and MNE

If a transit carrier has MNE's are the ships that it carries protected from maser nebulas?

E9.04.2
Transit Carrier Shields
While active, the Transit Carrier’s shields will block damage directed at the Transit Carrier and carried units as if they were a single unit. In addition, any active defenses and (MNE) systems mounted on the Transit Carrier will protect the carrier and any carried units


Those are the rules from Solar, but I doubt they have changed back in Ultra.
I weary of the chasssse. Wait for me. I will be mercccciful and quick.

Well, maybe I should have read the Official Rulings post first. :oops:

Considering that ULTRA doesn't even have a section E9, you might want to re-evaluate that assessment Van :) SSF has already started to diverge from ULTRA in many areas, and after 6.03 (not this update coming, but the one after) will diverge in most areas.

In the original ULTRA, none of these are true. However, as skurdzh has noticed, the official ruling at viewtopic.php?f=9&t=377#p2855 changed that so that "anything that protects the carrier, by definition, protects the parasite."

I'll stay out of Ultra for giving help. I do have a print-out of the Ultra rules, but they are buried in the "Attic of Doom'. At least I did state that I was quoting SOLAR rules. I'm relieved that my answer was right even though I actually had no clue that Ultra was different. I'm glad those still playing Ultra have that 'official ruling' regarding MNE as it just makes good sense to me.
