Some cards are just handy. The Eagle Defender can act as a good transport or capital ship guard with it’s Interdict ability. With it’s Dodge 2 ability, it can even stay alive against light hits from other fighters. It also has a mean little attack – a Fixed 2 damage against targets that are Charged (Charged cards have not acted yet this turn). With it’s Speed of 50, there is a good chance it can use this attack every round. Not bad for 3 Build Points!
