A legit swarm ship. And lots of interesting op possibilities.

Anyone notice the text from Maneuverability? Looks like this ship might come with the Full About template!

Not quite sure what to make of it.

7 captain is quite nice. Interesting ability as well. -1 attack die if you are within range 1 of a planet of obstacle. Works nice with the 3 ship agility.

Maneuverability (the tech upgrade) is quite interesting. You can actually maneuver your ship ONTO the planet token and still take actions. You also have the option to do a full about maneuver (180 turn, not come about maneuver). And you get a +1 defense die from it too.

Interceptor 5
Kira Nerys 5
Blockade
Day Kannu
Li Nalas

4x Generic Interceptor w/ Generic Captain and Phaser Strike

98 points

That's a 20 die (or 12 TLed and 3 not) alpha strike at CS 10.

Interceptor 5 only has 1 crew slot.

You are correct, but I also forgot to put Phaser Strike on Kira's ship anyway. So drop Li Nalas and add in the Strike for a perfect 100.

I wish the "Roll dice against any minefield" was standard for the class and not just the named.

Well at this point we don't know that it's not. Unlikely but we don;t know

I just had a thought, so does the Generic cost the same 16 points since they have only stripped a single shield off the Generic ships released so far and called it 2 points less with no passive ability....

It will, assuming it's the same as the Praetus.

There are some big clunky ships that "Maneuverability" will be well worth 11 points on.

Even Voyager, which is already pretty dancy could enjoy a full about maneuver and the ability to sit on planet tokens.

Man, the creators of this game were way too nice to Bajorans.

That being said. I'll quit whining shortly and promptly play this when it comes out. Wow it gets some neat cards

It's a sort of weird thing where the point system is actually what's being nice. This ship gets trashed one-on-one by almost anything that exists contemporaneously with it; it's good in high numbers, but you can compensate for that in real Trek by fielding more ships than you can in the game.

I think they did a great job representing the Bajoran freedom fighter/insurgency history.

Lenaris Holem - Always a sneaky chance to get away
Hazar - May not be the biggest ship, but use what you can to your advantage
Neela - Total sabotage plot right there
Militia - Neat addition

I really dig it. Makes me wonder what the Val Jean will do and how a contingent of Bajoran Fighters + Val Jean against some Cardassians will do.

Kind of odd that for the first commercially available Bajoran ship, they have two relatively obscure captains and the same with crew. Also, one of the captains is a 7, above the 5 Kira in the OP ship? And above The Sisko!?!?

I'm guessing the next Bajoran ship will have Kira, but why not release that one first then?

Really digging the ship itself though, it feels like an atmospheric fighter that can weave in and out of planets to fight the enemy guerilla-style. Very Bajoran.

I'm thinking I should just give WizKids the login information to my bank account so they can just take my money directly.

Yes, they were so nice to them that they gave them an 18 and a 16 point ship.

Well, there all ready were 2 Kira's, one of whom was commercially available. And she is Bajoran factioned, even if she was in a Federation pack.

Neela is probably the least obscure. Believe she was the one who Winn hired to assassinate Vedek Bareil at the end of season 1.

I'm getting 4 minimum and a 5th may happen.

If this ship can't swarm, nothing will.

You seem to be assuming the Generic Inerceptor will cost 14 points. Experience with the praetus would indicate it will still be 16.


On the bright side, since the Weapon and Techs are not unique, but the crew are, I'm going to optimistically assume that the generic has a Tech and Weapon slot, making this one of the best tech/missile-boats available (good bye Gr'oth and Somraw!)

You're right about Neela, I thought she looked familiar. If there are already too many Kiras (though look at all the Worfs running around!) how about Odo? He was part of the Bajoran militia. Or Shakaar? I guess we'll see them in the next ship.

Ro Laren might have sort of fit, but I'm guessing she'll be in the Val Jean.

I'm being optimistic; I'm not sure I see this working as a 4x swarm build. Besides, the ship seems explicitly designed to swarm; my hope is that they'd allow as many as possible in a fleet.

I was really excited when I read phaser strike...a fleet attack at CS10 is just what a swarm needs...then I realized it took an action...Still strong, but not nearly as much.

That makes dropping things like Blockade, DCO, and Kira near impossible while also getting the skill boost.
