I need to know about Varel...

Her card says you cancel the attack before the other player rolls their dice. Say the other player is using a "discard" attack like BoF to attack. I throw down Varel and discard her to cancel the attack, does the other player discard their Barrage of Fire card, since they would have used it to make the attack in the first place?

Andrew? Please, please say yes... devil

Yes, Varel is an effective (but expensive!) counter to Barrage of Fire.

Sounds like a worthy sideboard card

As awesome as Varel is it can get really expensive really fast.

5 point penalty for a non-Apnex [science vessel] ship.
1 more penalty for non-romulan.

That's 11 [potentially] to get them on your ship.

Paired with Wayoun = priceless.

Expense is cost relative to the player...

Varel cost 10 points...

Look on Klingon players face when his entire attack is canceled, his ships have Auxillary power tokens and is now within deadly range of a Romulan fleet fielding cloaking mines and torpedoes...pricelessdevil

As you can tell I do not like Klingons that much...

Yes and no.

Shooting and taking out other targets first still works. And generally it is not just 1 strong attack that the Klingons are going to throw at you but more along the lines of 3, 4 or maybe even 5 depending on the build they are using.

Cancelling 1 certainly hurts, but they other will still get you.

Unless they corbomite maneuver you too....
that is just cruel.

I have a player who is relying on it to erase at least one ship out of my fleet next OP, I picked up the Apnex today to bolster my Romulan toolkit. I believe it will come to a nice surprise when it goes off. If I could get another interphase generator I would, but I don't feel like dropping another 15 for ship that I will never use.
