Re: Crippled Ships Suggestion

On the subject of crippled was there ever a definitive (man in red) answer to the question of what firing only one weapon While attacking meant? Were all available weapons still available for defence against drones and plasma?

Re: Shield critical clarification

Another query about shields: does the level3 Dilithium chamber critical and/or the level 5 and 6 shield criticals prevent you from using the Boost Energy to Shields! special action? They have titles of Shield failure, Shields Down and shields offline.

Re: Evading drones

That's what I thought. If you can evade though is it against a ship or a weapon system? i.e. if a Gorn cruiser fires two type s plasma torpedoes and two type f should I roll one evasion attempt or four? The rule just says you roll to avoid seeking weapons so I assume it is one roll. It's not a probl...

Re: Evading drones

A query about evading drones etc. If you fail the cq check for take evasive action you don't get -1 on the enemy's non-seeking fire. If you fail this check can you still roll to evade drones or did the first failure mean you cannot? Also would this roll be against a ship or against each seeking weap...

Look closely and you'll see there are thrusters where the weapons used to be. Hence you don't lumber anymore :D

Re: Photos of Klingon and Terran Empire vessels

I like the way these are atypical Federation colour schemes. Some questions; what colours have you used; this looks like the best 'Federation grey-silvery-white' colour I have seen. Are these staged photographs or are they from an actual game? Where are the rest of the pictures? Come on we want to s...

Re: Ship Explosion Attack Dice (SF)

both explosions are the same size, half starting hull max 20. I don't think I made it clear what I was asking: does the ship explode at the end of the next movement phase (the first, less serious explosion) or immediately (the second type of explosion)? The chart just says 'Ship Explodes' but there...

Re: Ship Explosion Attack Dice (SF)

Another explosion question: When you reach the 'Ship Explodes' line on the dilithium chamber critical line what type of explosion is it? I ask because there are two ways a ship can explode. I've assumed it's the first type of explosion (the not quite so big one).

Re: Tech Slosh and Empire based weapon systems

Soo looking at the Empires Klingons: Unique Weapon: none Sloshed Weapons: Drones, Phasers Minor error here; the kligons have (or used to in my day) have the stasis field generator (SFG). It didn't do any damage, was fitted to a grand total of four ships (B-10A, C9-A, D7-A and D5-A), and couldn't ev...

5. Scouts will be appearing in the Journal, and so we could take the opportunity to enhance the Scout trait to do something with drones - however, this would mean everyone would always take a scout in their fleet, and we don't want that. . Wiil scouts have the SFB useful ability to break the lock o...

Re: Thinking about point values

While it might be theoretically possible to come up with a programmable points system to reflect all of these factors Nope. It's 100% impossible to create fully working point system for miniature games. Too many factors that aren't even same for everybody. True, much as I hate to admit it there's n...

Re: 2300AD Core Book Preview

In the original weapons could fire at ships in the same hex or, at a penalty, the adjacent hex. Only ships with a Jerome (sorry about the lack of accents) drive could move. It was mainly about getting your x-ray laser missiles and submunitions where you thought the enemy was going to and keeping you...

Re: Trading weapons systems

My favorite modification was the D7C Doomslayer modified by 'The Masters'. Standard D7-C but with a forward arc and a rear arc photon. What weapons did it lose; none. It was a big cheat and the scenario it was with did include notes about not modifying other ships based on this one. Talking practica...

Re: I'm getting sick of "Lumbering"

Not sure about the gorn only bit, everyone has shuttles. OK Gorn have more, but you probably only need a couple to close the range on drone heavy forces. I say 'Gorn only', in quotes, as the Gorn are the only ones that need it. Romulans cloak, everyone else has some kind of useful anti-drone defenc...

Re: I'm getting sick of "Lumbering"

Yes I see now how it would work and it appears okay (Kzintis will disagree as there best weapon system is now only range 12"........but they've had it too easy so far). Just a couple of clarifications though:- I presume the quick launch trait wouldn't allow multiple weasel launch in a turn (i.e laun...

Re: I'm getting sick of "Lumbering"

Not sure what you mean by having a wild weasal and using all powes to engines. If you use the WW action then obviously you cannot use another special action. Well you launch a WW; it isn't destroyed (out of range or behind cover). The next turn you use all power to engines. The rule didn't say it w...

Re: I'm getting sick of "Lumbering"

A problem I can foresee with wild weasels is that although they solve the drones problem they create another one. As soon as your Gorn has limped across the board taking drones and disruptor fire you finally get into range, fire your torpedoes and the Kzinti's...launch a wild weasel! Then while you...
