Chaff Pods

If 2 ships are on the same square, and a missile is approaching 1 ship, can the other launch a chaff pod to distract it (angles of the various ships vs. approaching missile allowing such a thing)?

No, since a guided missile will always head straight for its target, and one hex contains an undefined amount of space (quite literally). Imagine flying in loose formation: If the wingleader launches a chaff pod, it won't help his wingman who's a few hundred meters to his portside. It would also make chaff too powerful, and it would endorse people belonging to the same team to occupy the same hex as often as they can.
