So a store that I played the first OP set at is holding a tournament to unload all the extra prize support they have left.

The rules are 120pts No Resources No admirals orders and No OP ships/cards thought I'd take the opportunity to try out the Borg as such I have two builds to consider

Tactical Cube 138 (46)
Borg Queen (6)
Borg Ablative Hull Armor (7)
Borg Assimilation Tubules (8)
Seven of Nine (4)
Feedback Pulse (8)
Total (79)

Borg Sphere (38)
Tactical Drone (3)
Total (41)

Fleet total: 120

As I understand it the 120 pts is the sum of your 90 pt fleet plus 30 pts from one of five possible blind booster ships.

Did you do this right?

Yep this isn't a blind booster tournament this is a one off extra tournament being run by a game store.

With those restrictions, I'd say go with the 3-sphere. Shenanigans in that format are extremely limited and no fighters. Also, you could potentially switch out the 2 tac drones for the queen and probably use her reincarnation abilities.

I'm going to the same tournament.

Have to be honest, I think I'll be playing Borg too. I did two tholian webs this weekend, and in the first one I messed up and put Assimilation tubles on a sphere with Genkahn in command, effectively wasting 8 points.

Nevertheless, I won two of my matches and placed joint third. The Borg are just awesome

I have a feeling it will be a Borg off, I tried to create a list for my Romulans but nothing I came up with could come close to a Borg build and I sure as hell ain't playing fed.

Am I the only one that finds this vaguely depressing?

After trying the 3 sphere build at my local club and found it was just too brutal and to be honest boring to play. In the end I went with my 'ferengi' borg (cube and sphere with ass tubes) and went 2 and 1 but had a fun time playing.
