Each player has a role to fulfill, be it manning the guns, repairing damage, or piloting the ship, and each player must respond on the fly to a changing environment. Gunners may abandon their guns to repair a vital component or the pilot may ditch the wheel to add a little more firepower to a broadside sweep.
