I am fighting Darkmoor ships in Cooper's Roost Skyway at the moment...and I have noticed that just as I am about to defeat them, there is a yellow (or gray if I am out of range) circle with a bar in the middle of it that won't allow me to fire at them...this is quite annoying especially when collecting or defeating large numbers (I have to defeat 10 of them for the current quest)....not every battle but most.
What does this mean and what can I do to avoid it or fight through it or eliminate it?
Thanks!

That means you entered the skylane, or you wandered off too far from their patrol area.

If you do need to kite, kite in a small circle, out of the enemy ship's reach, making sure you don't hit the skylane.

Those are damage tokens, so if you get boarded, traps will be on your ship (ie: spikes, fire, etc). If you take them away, then it cleans up your deck, which is a good thing!
