Re: Picard Maneuver and Stargazer spoiled by an eBay auction.
The two visible cards are not bad. Combine that with the double attack elite talent from Prime ship. 10 attack dice in a first move 10 forward! Nuts!!

Re: Picard Maneuver and Stargazer spoiled by an eBay auction.
Hmm...one (unique) crew, one weapon, one tech. I know it was from the Hathaway, but the only tech I can think of (and a sort of warp-looking tech at that) is Wesley's "science experiment," which means that maybe Wesley is the crew?
I think the only Stargazer crew member we've seen is Jack Crusher, who would also be an interesting choice, of course.

So its stats are literally IDENTICAL to a named version of the Ferengi ship class that it historically got its ass kicked by, and only managed to prevail at all (although the ship had to be abandoned) BECAUSE of the 'Picard maneuver'??

Lore fail...

Actually, wait. Might those be holodeck lines in the background of the crew card?!

I thought they were attacked from surprise at Maxia, while trying to make friends? Hardly a straightforward punch-up to make a useful comparison.

That's fairly accurate.

Quote:
On stardate 40217.3 the Stargazer was on a routine survey mission near the Maxia Zeta star system. It was preparing for a full survey and sensor scan when an unidentified spacecraft was detected near one of the moons of Maxia Zeta IV. This ship later turned out to be a Ferengi vessel that may have been hiding within a deep lunar crater and was launched from said moon, though scans indicated no launch complex. All attempts to hail the ship failed.

The battle began when the Stargazer was suddenly fired upon by the Ferengi ship while traveling at warp 2 through the system. The ship was able to score two direct hits on the Stargazer.

You may use any number of officer cards. That just became pretty sweet.

Congratulations, Follower of Khan, you've been promoted!

I'm just going to point this out for the "WizKids hates Romulans" crowd- Having the most 1-point crew, this pack benefits Romulans the most. There, I said it.

Tactical Officer seems like kind of a waste, should have named it Chief Gambling Officer.

Re: Picard Maneuver and Stargazer spoiled by an eBay auction.
Seems pretty good confirmation to me that Jack Crusher will be the (only?) crew upgrade from the pack. You can see a unique upgrade card in the middle of the stack with what appears to be holodeck yellow-lines on the picture. That'll be him.

If I were a betting man I'd put a few bucks on Jack Crusher as the crew. The Tech is what's really got me guessing.

RE: Officer resource: SURELY the operations officer is intended to read re-roll "UP TO" twice.

Except the Romulans can't use the Science Office (no combat ships with the 'scan' ability) or tactical officer (no ships at all with the 'battle stations' ability), or 2/3 of the first officer.

So...yay, the Romulans can use the operations officer! shake

Man, all a Romulan admiral would need to be kind of great would be "FLEET ACTION: Perform a [scan] or [battlestations] action.

You're not alone, the Klingons are in the same boat. It's a damn embarrassment of riches again for the Federation...no wonder all the other powers in the Alpha quadrant want them dead.

Looks like it will continue to be a good day to die for my Klingon fleets.

Not quite the same but at least you've got Drex'l'stations.

Romulans and Klingons are happy enough with the extra tech slot from the Science Officer.

With that said, Tactical and Ops are both pretty lackluster.

Re: Picard Maneuver and Stargazer spoiled by an eBay auction.
Yeah, my first thought for the science officer was to give the Valdore a Science Officer Romulan Tactical Officer for that tech slot and maybe a Pilot or two to get a green maneuver and talk to SORTO about science.

But yeah, that tactical officer... shake Between it and Suder (edit: and Saavik), I get that this game really expects me to be all "dang man, I wish I had something to spend all these extraneous BSes on," and I can sort of see that idea starting to take shape with Janeway and (non-)Beardo Riker and the First Officer, but we're definitely not there yet.

First Officer is still plenty cool, though, and I have no complaints about Ops. It's like a quadruple Sisko! Granted, it won't be winning MVP, but you're looking at a pretty solid return over the course of the game, which is actually incredibly appropriate for the Miles/Harry officer card.

I asked the seller of stargazer to post more images. He refused.

Seems a poor decision as he's expecting people to bid on it not knowing 2/3 of the contents.

Re: Picard Maneuver and Stargazer spoiled by an eBay auction.
The point is, this secondary market gets ridiculous. Now ebay even spoils content. I must say I really love the game, own every ship (at least those available on the primary market) plus all the OP-ships except the Sutherland because it is ridiculously expensive. The whole OP-Exclusive Gen Con Exclusive and Ebay selling starts starts to really sour the game for me. I am a Trekkie, I love boardgames, I love STAW, yes I want to own the Full Game and all it's mechanics. And this is the point. I am ok with a bit exclusive here and there, alternate cards, arts or stuff which you can just get earlier via OP. But entire Game mechanics and Fan favourites being exclusive combined with poor communication from Wizkids is really ridiculous. I am thinking of quitting the game.

Is it just me or is the Stargazer really, really tiny?
