Timing question. Let’s say that Commander Temple (SM 068) and Peter Miles (FN 050) are on the Maui’s Fishhook. The Fishhook uses her Hoist arm to explore an enemy derelict. Which ability is applied first? Would Miles be able to steal most of the treasure on the target ship before Temple’s ability kicks in? Or would Temple’s ability take precedence over Miles’s?
Miles would have to wait until after the explore action was complete, because that action was what caused the ships to touch. However, in this case that timing doesn’t actually matter because you’re allowed to transfer cargo between the ships as part of the explore action, before sending both home.
