So now that we have a decent idea what's in wave 3, how many of each shi are you guys purchasing?

For me:
Jem'hadar battleship - 2 - I will fly 2 battleships. It may be terrible, but I'll do it anyways. Its the biggest baddest ship for a while and 6 + BS can mess a ship up. Not sure if any of the upgrades are worth 2 copies, but the ship is a beast.

Somraw - 1 - None of the upgrades look that exciting in multiples and the ship will doubtfully see much use in general. you could make a combined raptor/D7 swarm, but BS on the D7 probably makes that a better candidate.

Equinox - 1 - I'll be honest, the upgrades suck. The ship is decent. It has the same stats as the reliant, trading a 180 forward arc for a tech slot. Could make a great Federation missile boat. It definitely looks cooler than the Reliant.

Gal'Gathong - 2 - I want a second copy just for more of those nuclear warheads to experiment with, and more mine tokens.

I'm still figuring out how many of each I want.

The Romulan ship has an interesting upgrade in the warhead, but the main reason to run one is in its named ability.

The Battleship I don't see myself wanting more than one of, as two of them do not complement each other terribly well and there aren't many non-unique upgrades there that I'd want duplicates of. That said, one is very solid on its own.

The Somraw is a mixed bag. I like a couple of the upgrades but the ship itself seems suited to limited play more than tournament play.

Equinox has some crazy stuff in it. I anticipate that some of the upgrades will pair nicely with stuff already out, like the EMH with the Defiant's Cloaking Device, for example.

2 Battleships - might turn into 3 for those days where I'm playing a 200+ build against friends arrrh

1 Somraw - it doesn't cloak so it's as spongy as a D7 and the non-unique cards are all Raptor class only. I don't see needing more than one as I probably won't run the ship itself very often if at all.

2 Equinox - because I'm a sucker for Federation ships. 2 Navigational deflectors might not be the worst thing even if they are a little situational. Perfect if you think you're going to face a bunch of those sniveling Romulan mines fleets.

2 Gal'Gathong - although this might turn into 3, tough to say right now. No tech slot, but suddenly at least the named ship with plasma torpedoes I have a 23 point middle support ship that can fire without a target lock. The 2nd and 3rd ones would mostly be just for the Nuclear warheads. A weaker antimatter mines, but still potent for dropping right in front of a tightly clustered fleet... I wish they couldn't hurt your own ships, but I can live with that. That's what the cloaked mines are for.

Only one of each. My group are all casuals who just play with my models, so I have made sure to buy at least one ship from each wave to give us all a wide choice.

The Jem'Hadar Battleship looks fantastic, but I only need the 4th Division Battleship itself in order to anchor my Jem'Hadar attack ship squadron.

The Somraw doesn't excite me grestly, I will mainly pick it up for the sake of completionism.

The Equinox isn't bad, I love Captain Ransom, the EMH and the Navigational Deflector, but the rest is take-it-or-leave-it for me. The generic ship itself doesn't compete with the Miranda as a torpedo boat (the 180 arc is just too good), so I will only ever use the Equinox herself as a nice defensive support ship for the Enterprise.

I don't play Romulans, but two of my friends do. I want to see the Gal'Gathong in action before I purchase a second one. On paper it looks great, but I want to see if it finds its way into my Romulan friends builds first.

This is an expensive one for me.

I like to play some of my casual games Faction AND Era pure (at least ship-wise).

So 1 each of the battleship and equinox but a massive 3 each for the other 2.

I'm saving pennies already!

Ditto. I want at least two battleships to go with my 4 attack fighters.

so far I have purchased 1 of every ship, with the only extras being an extra attack ship, and an extra kornak/Keldon. for Jemhadar and Cardassian fleets.

I will be sticking to pattern for this one with only 1 of each ship. But the only expansion I'm not super excited for is the klingon. All those ship specific upgrades disappoint me a bit.

But it does make me excited to schedule an "era specific" event in the future

I'm going with 1 each for pre-order.

And I'd consider getting a second Battleship (as an event buy in or after I see the Cruiser in Wave6) and/or a second Equinox (as an buy in or if I really like the Navigational Deflector).


Usually when I buy multiples of an expansion it's for the ship and the cards are the extra for me......if was just a card or two I probably wouldn't......I do really like the look of the Nova class and I'm interested to see if it keeps the Tech slot on the generic.

One of each is a given. I'm thinking an extra Battleship and an extra Gal Gath'thong.

I am definitely looking at 2 of the Romulan ships, not much of a Klingon player, hell I don't have the Negh'Var so I am reasonably sure I can hold of on the Somraw.

I definitely am going to buy the Equinox (for Federation Completionism) and at least one of the battleships, just so I can play with it.

One of each, and maybe two equinoxes so I can double up on Navigational Deflectors if need be, and because I like the idea of running the Enterprise E with 2 Novas as escorts for aesthetic reasons since they share some design elements.

I typically get one of each but I'm thinking of skipping the Somraw this time. I'm primarily a Romulan player so I'm thinking of getting 3 of the Bird of Preys (dem Nukes) and an extra Dominion Battleship.

1 Battleship, and 1 Gal Gath'thong, certainly; probably the Equinox, too. I have multiples of very few ships, so far. i bought two of the Kraxon, but that was mostly because I like the visual appeal of Cardassians in three ship formations, so the Koranak flanked by two Galor-class cruisers looks good to me. Otherwise, at the scale I normally find myself playing, singles are working out just fine for me, and result in each ship having its own unique flavor, instead of running task forces with duplicating abilities. Besides, some ships become nearly pointless if you don't use the named, unique versions. What good is the non-Praetus version of the Bird of Prey?

My list is pretty much equal to the OP. I need some extra minefield tokens and The GGT is the closest things the Romulans will get to a mid sized ship. I'd definitely get a third if not for the glaring weakness that they don't get a tech slot, as it is I'm still considering it..

As always, I will buy one of each. And the Reliant is a much better looking ship than the fugly Equinox.

My rule is that I'm only buying one of each ship.

The Battleship may be the one to bend that rule. (Assuming I don't think of a better trick first.)

What do you expect to find behind here, King Kong?

One of each. I have bought one of each ship so far. The only ship I bought 2 of is the Excelsior. Mostly for the Transwarp to keep my Fed ships together.

Jem'hadar battleship One initially. I would have said "2" in a heartbeat before the announcement of the Battle Cruiser for Wave 6.

Somraw One and that's pushing it for me. I think it will be a fun ship to try out but it's not really going to be esential to any Klink builds I can think of at the moment.

Equinox One. I'd like 2 for the Tech upgrade but with the Feds having so few Tech slots...

Gal'Gathong Two, possibly three (just because this is likely one of the few TOS era Romulans we're likely to see in some time).
