Can't wait!

I've got all the ships from Tactics already so I can say they look nice.

Can't wait to see the cards to go with them.

The only one not announced in a wave yet is the Diamond, so I'd have to guess that will be part of wave 8. Of course we have to wait until April before even one of these comes out - and then it's just the sphere. It's in June with the tactical cube that things get exciting Must be patient, must be patient!

The "Assimilator" is "Borg Ship 03" in Federation speak or "Borg Soong Ship" according to WizKids.

It will be very interesting to see how these ships related to the rest we have out in terms of upgrades, captains, maneuver dials, etc.

I have this terrible suspicion that the diamond will be an OP prize...Although this picture seems to point otherwise.

I also have a suspicion that this will likely be an OP prize: http://heroclix.com/heroclix/preview/star-trek-heroclix-tact...

Is that ship from a show? Or made up for Tactics?

It is a ship from Voyager. Its a small exploration vessel that 7 of 9's parents used to study the Borg. Definitely Borg themed and a scult exists both assimilated and unassimilated.

I bet a lot of the OP prizes for The Collective are going to be assimilated versions of other ships.

I really hate what happened to the Borg. It started in First Contact and really went downhill in Voyager. I suspect I'm going to be annoyed for the 6 months of that OP event.

I'm very interested in their movement options.

They always showed the ability to just take off and go any direction. Would be cool if their bases were slotted on all 4 sides to denote that and to show 'front' not meaning much to the collective.

I thought 4 sides, then I thought, what if you let them move in 6 directions, a hex base? That would let you give them no turns and just a 1-3? straight move and still be very interesting. 4 Directional move I think would still need a 'turn' (even if it was red) to make it work right.

The Scimitar does OK with no turns.
