Thoughts:
- 26 points for 5 attack die
- Dukat: kind of like a Picard-lite for 1 less SP (only 2 "free" ability options per round instead of 4)
- Boheeka crew: nice effect for only 2 SP
- Enhanced Weaponry = equivalent of Keldon-class photon torpedoes
- Dorsal Weapons Array = gives the Enterprise-D's 360 ability to ships for 3 SP
- Tetryon Emissions = nice OWP or Barrage of Fire extra defense as a tech upgrade; Sulu for the Dominion
- Cloaking Device = Defiant cloak for Keldon-class ships, which includes the Kraxon

The relatively cheap-costed upgrades seems like this could be a multiple-purchase ship

WOW! Tough ship with lots O' goodies. The Dominion have their heavy hitter. And now I really feel like the feds are outgunned.

Dang, the cloak is possibly the least exciting part of that preview, and that's saying something

I love this ship. Virtually all of the upgrades are ones I actually want to use with the exception of maybe the keldon torpedoes. The keldon cloak has one major advantage over the defiant one in that it can be used on all keldon class vessels. The defiant cloak can only be used on the defiant herself without paying the 5 point penalty. Every keldon can take cloak. The dorsal weapons array also sounds great.migt be good for attack ships.

A gift from the Tal'Shiar when the joined forces to attack the dominion.

Unfortunately, the Kraxon is Galor-class, not Keldon-class, so the cloak won't go on it.

I'm fairly impressed with the Koranak, though, and Dukat doesn't disappoint. Still hoping for another Sisko that will outclass him, because I think that's deserved.

If I recall correctly, this was in a season 3 episode. The Romulan Tal Shiar and the Cardassian Obsidian Order sent ships to attack the homeworld of the changelings. Both fleets had cloaking ability because of this short alliance.

5/1/4/3 2x tech, 2x weapon, 1x crew, Evade, Target Lock, Scan, Battlestations, 26 points. Instead of making a normal attack, you may spend a scan token to attack two ships with your primary at -2 dice each. It also has a 180 degree arc and a 4 bank.

Of course, how could I forget? Neither Dukat or Evek was part of that fleet, and I was looking for a link between them and the cloak, that's what confused me. Not that such a link is required.

That's a pretty cool ship! I knew I wanted a ship with Gul Dukat as captain, but now I want it even more! :)

Tough ship. Goes a long way to beef up the Dominion fleet. In terms of fire power, this is Klingonesque. Sounds like it may have more maneuverability than the Kraxon too. I'd like to take Koranak with Dukat up against Enterprise-D with Picard. Should be an interesting match.

I like that Tetryon Emissions are not a unique card

Named Koranak ship in a build with Donatra and Martok 9 or Gowron makes it a pretty sweet attack against 2 ships - especially with a 180 firing arc.

I'm loving the upgrades! I'm wondering if the 4-bank will mean it'll turn like even more of a whale, though.

Finally a ship that makes the Dominion a viable single faction. They've had good support ships in a mixed faction build, but with this I can see some competetive Koranak/Kraxon/Gor Portas builds.

Good ship...good card abilities...I like that these abilities are not primarily going to cost your action.

Who cares if it can have a 5 attack w/180 deg arc. And a 3 attack at 360 degree but needs to be enabled each turn.

Just note Attack Pattern Omega wasn't shown as unique in its preview for wave 1.

Love it. cool

The Ship.

The Captains.

The Crew.

The Tech.

I'm not usually a fan of most weapons and I like these ones as well.

Chris, Andrew......awesome. Thanks!

Agreed. We'll have to wait for the stock pic to check.

I'll take 3, seriously.

The ship...5 attack and 180 arc is scary. With the attack buffed to 7 by Donatra and Martok, the named ship could hit two ships with 5 dice. That's potential.

Both captains are great. Dukat is the new 2 super ship second captain to go with Picard. Evek may be loaned to the Romulans along with Sulu for the most pesky cloaked support ship which refuses to die.

Dorsal array seems best with the Attack Ship to greatly boost its useful options.

Tetryon Emissions seems like a fantastic card as a pseudo cloak, especially to use along with captains like Dukat and Picard and an already cloaked ship. 9 defense dice on that Warbird? no problem.

Glad the cloak extends to the whole Keldon class, making 3 of these guys cloaked a viable option with 14 points to spare for captains, etc.

The talent is yet another way to play good defense.

This seriously may be the best overall package Wizkids has put out to date.
