Re: Klingons on the Starboard Bow - UK Tournament April 28th

Stupid Question - Can people come and just watch rather than play? I don't think I'll have my fleet painted in time :(

ACtA rules convergence

I was wondering if NA and SF rules would be aligned in the furure editions? I don't expect to have battles between the houses and the Klingons but it's a pain trying to remember two sets of similiar rules. Or is that the price of old age?

Re: Fighters more common in ACTA : NA

Great news! I'm so glad I've ordered the extra fighters. All I need now is a death star to go up against :D

Re: Ramming in ACTA NA

I think we have come off topic slightly. I feel ramming is a valid tactic just not a standard one. I was trying to put ramming into perspective. Great fiction whether book, film or game depends on internal logic. Babylon 5, Star Trek, BattleStar Galactica, etc. were more than just big ships fighting...

Re: Ramming in ACTA NA

As I said I'm new to NA so I've only read the rulebook and the articles on the Mongoose website. When I initially read the the material my impression was that the game covered great houses fighting between themselves and other institutions (including the church) for power. Great background for a war...

Re: Ramming in ACTA NA

I'm no naval historian but with the ramming a submarine was not the first choice of a captain. That's why ships have guns and depth charges.

I'm pretty much a newbie so I've been reading the forum to get a feel for the game. I've noticed that quite a few threads have mentioned ramming in their tactics which got me thinking. (Ouch!) Why? Don't worry I get the damage it does and I'm all for wholesale destruction (that's why I bought the ga...
