Re: Is ACTA SF a good analog for SFB or FC?

In most of the games I have played we have used the fleet composition rules; before they were published i used my SFB knowledge to decide "what was reasonable". I have no major issues with the rules. It might be interesting to know how many people who think that this race or that race is broken figh...

Re: Is ACTA SF a good analog for SFB or FC?

I saw Attack wing being demonstrated - it's not the game for me. The models are over-priced, particularly the Enterprise and other small ships, the game involved characters (Riker, Picard etc) and it's not suitable for fleet actions. Depending on the number of ships involved and the time available t...

Re: Is ACTA SF a good analog for SFB or FC?

For all those people wondering if they should buy and play this game, go right ahead! It plays fine the way it is with the small errata published. Remember, the majority who love the game usually don't post as such. If you're a Star Trek fan and want a simple combat game, you can't do better with o...

Re: Is ACTA SF a good analog for SFB or FC?

Hi guys, We have been talking a great deal with the guys at ADB and it looks like we are 'this' close to working out what has to happen and how. Still some details to hammer out, but things are looking positive. Great news - several people are showing interest at my club, but with them being old SF...

Re: Plasma Bolt clarification

I asked about Plasma Bolts here: http://forum.mongoosepublishing.com/viewtopic.php?f=75&t=55671 my understanding based on the responses is roll 1AD for each AD of the Plasma Torpedo - based on a 10 maximum range AND Energy Bleed trait so for a Plasma R at 8" range you have 4 dice (7 AD - 3 for Energ...

Re: Star Fleet's Finest 2013 Tournament - June 15th

I took along

1no Royal Hawk
1no SpH-C "Owl" Scout
1no Sph-A
1no Fast Hawk
1no KRC
1no KR

and then had a combination of bad luck and foolish mistakes (Don't decloak behind a Kzinti DN just because you can).

Still I had a great time and learned a lot :D

Re: Possible Starter box

The Klingon vs Orion squadron set & Rule book doe the job nicely.

Throw in the mini-campaign in the recent PDF and you have a starter set, although other X vs Y sets would be nice to have too

Re: Copied from the ADB Facebook Page

As a long time player of SFB I have always enjoyed ADB's honesty and openness with customers, also their commitment to quality, and "getting it right". Modules I have waited for, for years, have been delayed at the last minute because of various issues. When this has happened there has always been a...

Re: CTA: SF Plasma bolts and Plasma Carronades

So in your plasma-S example if I rolled a 2,5 & 6 to hit - the 2 would miss, the 5 would cause 1d6 divided by 2 damage on the shields and the 6 1d6 divided by 2 damage that would by-pass the shields?

Does any critical scored by a plasma bolt still cause the relevant score to increase by 2?

CTA: SF Plasma bolts and Plasma Carronades

How to plasma bolts work? If I bolt a plasma torpedo is it still a seeking weapon (automatic hit, no shield leaks) or is it a direct Fire weapon (roll to hit and natural 6's by-pass shields) with a Range of 10"? Example If I bolt a Plasma-R at 6" range against a target with 25 shields then does its ...
