As we know, the Aux token is a pain in our side when we want to perform our actions. So I wanted to compile a list of all the different ships and upgrades that can remove, prevent, or just plain ignore these pesky things.

Refit Scotty is what comes to mind first when I want to stop from getting one.

There are a couple of Vulcan tech upgrades that prevent or remove an Aux token. Power Grid, and Auxiliary Control Room. It's kind of their schtick.

Note that the concept of an aux Token is a less complex stand-in for energy allocation -- something that Star Fleet Battles, Federation Commander, and FASA Star Trek all had to some extent. The basic idea is that the ship is transferring aux power to one system or another to do something it wouldn't ordinarily have the power to do. But it's a pretty crude representation of the idea.

I understand that. ^^ Just trying to see ways to maximize the effect of any given turn?

Power Grid/Romulan Helmsman + Ogawa and you get an Evade or Scan token every round, and you can back up a ship, or do come-abouts until the cows come home.

Hmmm off the top of my head...


USS Enterprise, can perform an Action with and Aux

Scotty (Reft), disable to prevent an Aux

Scotty (Bounty), disable to remove an Aux

Sulu (Bounty), after executing a red, disable instead of taking an Aux

IKS B'Moth, can perform a red maneuver with an Aux

Aux Control Room, disable to remove an Aux

Power Grid, disable to prevent an Aux

Romulan Helmsman, turn a red maneuver into a white

Was kind of surprised that the ToS Enterprise isn't the first thing that comes to everyone's mind when they think about Aux Power Tokens.

Does Chekov that removes an Aux if you do a white maneuver count?
