Bombs make use of built-in teleporting technology to transport explosives or canisters containing nanobots directly into enemy or allied ships. By teleporting into the enemy ship, bombs bypass all shields and defense drones, but they can still miss an evading ship and teleport into empty space where they explode harmlessly. They cannot get through the Zoltan shield, but some bombs can deal damage to it. All bombs consume 1 missile ammunition unit per shot. Since bombs bypass the hull of the target ship, they do no direct hull damage, but most of them have some special effect (like igniting fires, causing hull breaches, stunning enemy crew, doing ion damage to disable systems, or encasing the room in crystals). A bomb can be destroyed before detonation by a laser blast or missile that hits the room it is in, so be careful with timing. Bombs can target your own ship, making repair and heal bombs useful, and can be used to damage, stun, or trap boarding parties.
