A lot of people think this ship is going to produce the second Elite Talent Dominion captain, The Female Changeling. In addition to this, I'm hoping we get a Weyoun crew card.

Another bit that I keep hearing brought up is that with two secondary weapon slots, what kind of goods is it going to get that would justify taking them along with the battleship's strength 6 primary. I'm guessing they'll be something other than just more torpedos. Who knows, maybe they'll just up and give us a retail Barrage of Fire.

Techwise, the only thing I can find in the show lore about them is a powerful hull. This may already be represented by the ship's stats, but some armor I can pass around to my other ships would be nice.

Personally, I'm hoping for Dumar and Tain. Tain should have been released with the Koranak but wasn't. And depending on which Dumar they're focusing on, he could fill the other slot.

Female founder is a given. For a second captain there are a few options. Damar is the most popular character with no card yet, but he's also a Cardassian. I really don't see a second Weyoun unless he's a crew card, but it would make some sense since we see multiple versions of him in the show. Maybe another of the Vorta we saw like Keevan, Eris, or Borath.

The crew will likely all be Jem'Hadar that only work on Jem'Hadar ships. Maybe a Vorta for variety.

Weapons are quite tricky. With 6 dice primary, I'm hoping for some fun secondaries, a 4 or 5 dice polaron beam would be fantastic, but would likely be the most expensive upgrade we've seen yet.

I don't see torps or high value secondary weapons given a primary of 6.

I think it would be more likely to be a lower strength increased arc weapon..say another dorsal or a lateral phasers.

I'm not sure about the Captain being a Founder as they didn't really take operational command...they had more of a flag position. I'd go with a Founder crew and another Vorta as the captain...someone like Yelgren.

Well, in the tech specs for the ship from the show, it is supposed to be twice the size of a Galaxy Class with 3 times the firepower. Among its listed arms are 10+ torpedo launchers. I can see them having some sort of torpedo barrage that doesn't require a target lock or possibly can target multiple ships in the fire arc to represent this. That would be a worthy choice between the ships primary attack of 6 and a 4 or 5 die attack that could target multiple ships. In the least, something like the Sutherland's secondary torpedo launcher is a good bet.

I do want to see the female founder and perhaps another variation of the Weyoun clone. Dumar would be nice as well. I really just want the Dominion to have a "Donatra-ish" type captain as it would really aide their swarm style tactics. I can see the Battleship being the one to offer that ability to a swarm of attack ships.

Yeah, the question of "what weapons could they give it that are worth equipping?" is a scary one.

No, I meant a crew version of Weyoun, most likely with a different ability. One that would give him a good synergy with whatever they give the Female Changeling.

What about a Changeling captain which allows you to treat the ship he pilots as a Dominion ship and so all Dominion upgrades to it don't cost the additional point?

Agreed. I would love another clone of Weyoun. Msybe, Weyoun 6, or something like that.

I've thought about how best to use the changeling infiltration. I came up with a 6 point, skill 4 captain with the text "Discard this card to target an enemy ship at range 1. Roll damage against that ship equal to the ships captain skill."

I suspect we'll have a crew or captain of some kind that allows 'repairs'.

After all, this is the only faction LACKING a 'repair' capability so far.

Romulans have Mirok.
Klingons have Konmel.
Federation have Defiant-O'Brien, Scottie, and Kyle.
Dominion have...nothing.

Since this will be the last Dominion ship we get until next August...(and that August release will then be the VERY last Dominion ship we get)...
