Your assumptions are correct.  Every game I've been a Phalon in has
required
at least one or more quick communiqu├ęs for coordinating firing and
maneuvering as to avoiding becoming a victim of my own or my teammates
PBs.

SMBs specifically state "enemy" ships in the rules while PBs have no
such
designation that I can find.
