Nicholas activates the Quann system.
He moves another Dreadnought out of Mecatol Rex into this activated system.
The same situation occurs as before. Steve has a PDS sitting on Mecatol Rex, which is an adjacent system. Since he has the Deep Space Cannon technology, he can fire at the Dreadnought that just arrived in the Quann system.
A PDS "hits" on 6 or higher. Steve rolls 1 Die for the PDS...
Steve rolls a 1 and misses against the Dreadnought.
