Storage Bombs can be used in any attack or defense as long as you have priority (meaning you are currently behind in the total value of your roll). The pretermined amount of your storage bomb (or storage shield) will be added yo your total value of attack or defense when played.
If an opponent plays Curse of Threes on you while you have Tarrison as your only active crew member, Tarrison's bonus would still trigger. If Tarrison's bonus is successful (by rolling a 4,5 or 6 with 1 d6) then you would still need to roll for Curse of Threes (by rolling 3 dice) to see if you draw the extra card.
Demolition is a keyword that allows for an armor or hangar to be discarded to prevent players from being able to attack their next turn. In the base set of PBL ROBOTS only Supreme Hangar has this ability.
The keyword DEFENSE BLAST is an ability that a crew might possess that allows him/her to be discard only if under attack that would give a specified bonus to the defending player. In the base set of PBL ROBOTS only Turtle Magoo has this keyword.
A Strike is like an attack except has a success rate that requires a separate set of circumstances to happen in order to cause infinit damage to any armor. For example: The shoulder armor YotZ Bazooka fires a Strike after any attack made by the robot it is attached to that is successful only if the player rolls 5 dice of the same value, with 2 rerolls allowed.
All cards with the UNITE ability are optional affects that only take place when announced. If a player forgets to activate a UNITE ability then the effect does not take place.

In tournament/league play this would not be allowed.
Anytime a player has more than 1 reroll effect (like Tormax "Reroll all 2s" and Maxine Trinidad PILOT's ability "On Initial attack/defense you may reroll one die") that player may choose which effect happens first. Example: Player Deon has both Maxine Trinidad PILOT and Tormax as an active crew and rolls an attack of +5 (rolling 2,2,4,5,6) resulting in 19 attack damage. Deon may choose which reroll effects trigger first, and he chooses Tormax "Reroll all 2's" and rerolls thos
