Boarding Ships

In EVO if I board a ship, capture it, and choose to use it as my own ship will I be able to change back to the other ship?

The short answer is "no".

While the ship becomes your escort, it doesn't even keep all of the upgrades that you put on it, or the weapons, and simply reverts to the standard version of whatever ship it is.

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe this behavior exists in both the original game and the EVO port for Nova.

And no, selecting the escort, releasing it from service, attacking it, and disabling it will not let you capture it again (I don't even think the game lets you board the ship even). Even if you could, because of the above mentioned behavior, it wouldn't be the same ship you gave up earlier, and would only be the standard version of whatever kind of ship it is.

Hope this helps!
