Galaxy Map?

Does anyone have an online version of the map in the front/back of the ACTA Fleet Lists book? I am currently redesigning the campaign rules, so my group can run a large campaign involving the entire galaxy. My goal is to setup a system that allows larger strategic play, each system will have between...

Fighter help

Ok I've played both B5 Wars and Fleet Action, so that may be the reason for my confusion here. So here are my questions: 1) A PL Patrol of Aurora fighters is said to be 4 "flights". Does 4 flights mean 4 fighters? If not, what exactly is a "flight" of fighters? 2) The Hyperion-class Cruiser houses 1...

I'd definitely be interested in participating if you still have slots available. I've been pondering about doing something similar (a full star map) with my own goup here. So it definitely peaks my interest.

Once they've made the leap to rotating sections they're not going to be stupid enough to go back to zero-g ships. Rotating sections were by no means unique to the Omega-class, the O'Neil space stations used them, the Cortez-class used them, the big commercial liners used them... I think your mistak...

The Warlock was underdevelopment and Ivanova did get one of the early ones yes. However, Earth did get gravity tech from the Minbari! This was clearly stated and was one of the reasons President Luchenko agreed to the ISA charter. The tech was then used aboard the Warlocks which were just coming off...

Re: ACTA & Fleet Action?

A Sharlin Warcruiser could turn its stealth jammer off, and still kick the crap out of any EA Ahem, then how is it that the Prometheus (a Hyperion of all things - not even an Omega or Warlock) managed to start the Earth/Minbari War? ;) Probably because they were point-blank range, the gravity shiel...

ACTA & Fleet Action?

I was just curious if anyone has tried to splice these two games together. ACTA is built well, but IMHO they took the balancing to far. I understand why, they use FAP which isn't the same as a point based system. Lets be honest though, the B5 universe isn't balanced. A Sharlin Warcruiser could turn ...
