Re: Worst ship?

Right now I'd have to say its a toss up between the Mars or the Gettysburg. They are absolutely unusable!!

But that opinion may change if we ever get Rules for them. :roll:

Re: Star Fleet Rulebook PDF

I wish this was just about just the PDF! But at the root of the anger over the PDF at least for me is a whole slew of broken promises... 1. Models were originally to be in resin. The resin was so bad it looks like they had a team of rats chewing it out of te mold. This was a major failure at launch,...

Thank you mongoose!

In these tough times following a rocky launch I'm sure Mongoose isn't getting much praise. But I would like to say a big thank you. I received a wolverine class ship with a wrong hull last Thursday. And today less than a week later I received the replacement part. Now I've been one of the ones compl...

Re: Wolverine assembly

Thanks all for the response. I sent Mongoose an email shortly after the original posting and they quickly replied that a replacement was being sent.

Re: Wolverine assembly

After further comparison to my other ships it seems that I received a strike cruiser hull. Is this the hull that is supposed to come with the wolverine?

Wolverine assembly

I picked up a new wolverine fast cruiser, and the nacelle stems do not fit into the hull. The stem is too big for the hole by a lot. Also, the saucer doesn't fit properly in the hull either. Has anyone else had this problem?

I know Mongoose has been trying to catch up on fleet boxes still. But are individual blisters that are no longer listed as pre-order shipping yet? I ordered two blisters of ships over a month ago now and still no confirmation on shipping...

Re: When do you launch Suicide Shuttles?

Do suicide shuttles detonate on contact with the base or with the post of the target ship? I would assume post but I just want to make sure. With the short distance of shuttle movement, it seems like the shuttle would have to do a lot of chasing to catch a ship.

Re: ACTA:SF Ramming?

Well. Was it specifically stated as impossible in TOS? (albeit not applicable here due to licence restrictions but in the reboot that's precisely what they did...) The short answer yes it was possible in TOS... You can view the details of the episode "The Doomsday Machine" here in which Kirk steere...

Re: ACTA:SF Ramming?

And as stated earlier, all SFU combat is assumed to take place at warp speed and the warp bubbles will "slide" past each other if they come in contact thus preventing a ram. So they can't ram because of travelling at warp speed, but they can transwarp beam marines to another ship moving at warp? :s...

special actions questions

1. Transport marines! Does the marines attack roll happen during the attack phase or at the end of movement. 2. Maximum warp now! I order this action at the top of the turn because none of the restrictions apply. However through the course of the turn the ship becomes crippled. Do I still get away s...

Re: Attack Phase

That does make sense, since we were unable to achieve enough damage in either game to make any ship go critical mass per the chart on page 8. But if you keep piling it on then I would guess that if the destroyed ship has valid systems to defend with that they would still defend against torps before ...

Attack Phase

I was curious as to how many people out there are actually following the attack phase sequence on page 7 of the rules. I've only played two games so far and it seemed that we defaulted to allowing each ship to fire each of its weapons in either groups of like weapons or one at a time. However, this ...

Gorn?!?! I wish our LGS could get the first wave of squadrons in stock. We were only ever able to get three of the first releases (one of each fleet) since the first failed launch.

I wouldn't think that would be the case on posting pics.

Romulan War Eagle Question

While doing up some stat cheat sheets, I noticed that the War Eagle has lesser stats for marines, shuttles and tractor beams then the other two smaller class ships the Skyhawk and the Battle Hawk. Is this a typo or intentional?
