If nekro scores it's only hit of an invasion combat during bombardment, do they get to copy a tech?

My interpretation in that scenario is that Nekro would not gain a tech. There would have to be an actual combat round in order for it to be considered a combat so that a tech can be copied.

PDS fire and bombardment are concisder pre-battle, so no tech from thoes hits.

I agree with Polter and Mayo. It is pre-combat, and so doesn't count.

Out of curiosity, does this also mean that destroyers are pretty bad for Nekro (well other than for whittling away at fighter screens)?

I believe the original intent is that both AFB and Bombardment during invasion do count for the nekro

Both are written under the Invasion Battle and Space Battle sequence on the race sheets respectively and therefore, should be counted as part of combat.
PDS is excluded because it is an entirely different step that occurs after movement step and before combat step during Tactical actions sequence.

friendly fire AC also does not activate the nekro copying capability

Also even if you play with ruling against nekro gaining tech from ATB there's still almost always a CV to get tech if you gib all the fighter
