Looking at a contested outpost scenario but using a crippled YT1300 as the said outpost (so can't move but can still fire).

How many point should it be worth to the rebel side? Does halving its value to 6 or 7 seem reasonable?

don's think it would effect things but the minefield scenario rules will be in use to simulate the rocks and debris still swirling around


(the narrative scenario is that the Millennium Falcon was damaged by Alderaan's debris and now both sides are racing to recover the Death Star plans)

Seems like it'd be worth more than the station, since its profile is smaller so it'll be tougher to get within distance 1 of it. Especially if the idea is the first ship that gets to it retrieves the plans, and then must survive the battle.

Maybe make the conditions that the Rebels must end their turn with a ship within distance 1, and then survive the battle, and the Imperials must either destroy the Falcon before the Rebels get to it or destroy the ship that took the plans.

If you wanted to be fully thematic, just skip the victory points and make that your straight-up win/loss condition.

Sorry, I can see I've not expressed myself well.

I was wondering how many fleet points the crippled YTwould be worth. It can still fire just not move so it is a combat unit, albeit a poor one.

(Narratively they are transmitting the plans but the connections are poor sothe rebels need the Falcon to make sure they have the complete plans. The Imperials want it to see waht has been tratransmitted )

Aha. If you want to give it a point value, probably somewhere in the 6-7 range is fine. Maybe more if it gets to keep Counter and Escort.

But I wouldn't make the Rebels pay for it as part of their 300-400, if that's what you're thinking. It's really more of a hindrance than a benefit, since it can't move and the Rebs would lose if it got destroyed early.
