The problem with space combat in EotE (or any similar game, for that matter) is that the players don't have a rich environment with which to interact, like they do in personal combat sequences. This gives every player's action a bland, generic feel. Things can begin to feel repetitive very quickly.

The Core book does a good job of giving the players an array of options in space combat scenarios, but those choices aren't as intuitive as they are in personal combat. I feel like the players need a "menu" of choices, at least for their first 2-3 space encounters.

Below is a link to a player aid that I created for that purpose. I have not yet had a chance to use it in a live session, as the adventures that I have run so far have not involved space combat. However, I thought I would put it out there for anyone else who wants to use it.

Comments are welcome.
