Yes, you are correct. If you use Data the attacker could not use a Target Lock or other method to re-roll the dice unless specified on a specific card.



Is this specific to Data's ship being the Defender? Or could it apply to any friendly ship in combat?

Example: A friendly ship is defending. During the Modify Attack Dice step of that combat, could Data (equipped to a different ship) be used to force the attack dice reroll? Even if his ship is not involved in the combat.

After internal review and deeper examination of the implications of this ruling we’ve decided to overturn the original ruling, we screwed up. Instead, Data errata’d to have the following text:

When defending, during the Modify Attack Dice Step, you may discard this card to force the attacking ship to re-roll all its attack dice.

We feel that this erratum clearly codifies the intent of the card, makes it function the way that players have been using it, and brings it in line with similar effects that occur during the Modify Attack Dice Step that do not use the new card formatting, all of which specify that the effect pertains to the ships involved in the attack.”
