I'm assuming only garrison units can hold the city from being captured, and C-Slately and his troops aren't garrison units but field units. Right?
I wonder how Cubbins is going to get out of the city being a garrison unit. I think Slately doesn't even know he's in the sky forwarded towards Tramennis. Tramennis is probably out of the city hex by now. And if the garrison unit rules didn't cross Ace's mind when he "rescued" Cubbins, soon we're going to see a very dramatic page of one specific incapacitated unit falling from the sky...
I don't think it was EVER said that only garrison can hold the city and it was never said that cubbins was a garrison unit. I think any unit can keep the city from falling and that's why cubbins was all that was holding the city because at the time the king and all of his men were sitting outside of the garrison. All enemy units must be croaked or captured to take the garrison... then the city falls and any units in the city but outside the garrison are captured.
