I don't think I'm actually bored enough to play this, but I was bored enough to put it together. Who knows, maybe there'll be an OP event where it might be amusing. laugh

Ship = Apnex (14)
Captain = Weyoun (4 + 1)
Crew #1= Varel (5)
Crew #2= B. Torres (4 + 1)
Tech = Feedback Pulse (8 + 1)
Tech #2 (from BT) = Maneuverability (5 + 5 + 1)
Weapon (from BT) = Dorsal Weapons Array (3 + 1)
IND FED FLAGSHIP (10) (to add the extra Crew and Tech)
Crew #3: Cold Storage Unit (4 + 1)
Tech #3: Projected Stasis Field (5 + 1)
Weapon #2 (from CSU): Forward Weapons Array (6 + 5 + 1)
Weapon #3 (CSU): Additional Weapons Array (4)

Weyoun is there since Varel is. I thought it'd be even more hilarious to take down a single huge Borg Cube/Sphere build with an Apnex. The flagship, Torres and Cold Storage Unit are necessary in order to add the extra slots for different weapon options.

Thoughts? lol laugh

I applaud the choice of the Apnex over the Vo- most people jump to the one additional defense die and ignore the loss of that crew slot, which is part of what is giving this list its 'oomph'.

This is the kind of thing that is absolutely hilarious and entertaining for me. Would you consider throwing an Elite Talent in in place of something like that Forward Weapons Array, and which would it be?

I looked at the other Flagships that would provide an Elite Talent instead of the extra Crew/Tech slot. I think the 3 crew slots are a must - Varel for the combo/protection, Torres to add the Weapon/Tech, and then Cold Storage Unit to add 2 more Weapons. That 3rd Tech slot is unnecessary. However, the only Flagship option to swap to that has the 3rd crew slot would be the IND ROM one with the Battleship, but that would mean giving up the Free Evade for the optional BS, then the 3rd Tech slot would be gone for the 4th Weapon.

Otherwise, whether it's swapping the Apnex for the Vo or what, there wouldn't be enough beef to fill up 90 SP on the Apnex.

Well, if you're anticipating getting shot at more than once a round, the battle stations might be more useful than a free evade with Cloaked defense dice, particularly with an Advanced Weapon System.

Now I'm trying to figure out how Li Nalas and the EMH cycle with The Doctor to keep you Cloaked and Weyoun-Varel going indefinitely....

Cold Storage Units are Tech not Crew.

The Apnex has no red maneuvers so the it should be relatively easy to focus on one ship without the need of DWA. I would also look into upgrades that do not require discard/disable. The disable would take up an action where you will not a whole lot (enabling weyoun) and it might be better to go with some upgrades that will be with you the whole time than discarding them for a small one-time boost.
