Taken from GF9's Facebook page:

"A blockade of cloaked mines in front of the wormhole means that the Cardassian Union expansion will not be available for sale at the shows as we had hoped. We will have display copies for previews in our booths. Also, players in our Gen Con game events will be using most of the elements from the expansion in their games."

Uggh, so disappointed. I guess there is now zero reason to rush GF9's booth at Gen Con, especially after the preorders went up.

That makes ZERO sense!

Cardassia is located in the Alpha Quadrant. The mines block access from the Gamma Quadrant. Mining the wormhole would stop the Dominion Expansion, not the Cardassian!

Next time they should use an excuse that shows they have a grasp of the Trek universe. For example, they could have said "Warp Storms have isolated the Cardassian System, making warp travel perilous."

They spoke in one post about possibly having some play mats and such.

GF9 has sold 3x3 vinyl star-mats for at least a few years. I got one back when I played Star Trek Attack Wing. You can get one of them now if you want.

So, they don't know the difference between the Cardassians & the Dominion? I hope that this only means that they hired someone from WizKids who only does announcements, and not game content.

Warp Storms are 40k

It's a shame that they won't be for sale but at least we'll get to see the components again (and hopefully the Ferengi expansion).
