Immediate Delivery

2 Federation Cruisers came upon 2 Klingon Battlecruisers.

The 2 Klingon ships were leaving but then at the last minute turned around and started spreading out in attack formation. The Federation ships are not backing down and heading straight for them. Will report back soon, expect to find out if this all a bluff or if things are about to get hot. At this time, we are not aware of the reasons for conflict in this part of space.

Please note current positions, Klingons are at speed 24 while the Federation ships are at speed 16.

Turn 1 Impulse5-6

The Federation is heading straight in while the Klingons widen a little bit but closing the range too. If there will be shooting, it will happen very soon. The Federation photon torpedoes are not loaded so maybe this is just posturing?!?!



(well this is embarrassing, our previous plot may have had a few mistakes but be assured these are the correct positions) whistle

Alternate image, not sure how I feel about it. They are clipped here but the movement trails will show up better as they get closer.

Urgent Update!!!
Klingons go weapons free at long range!

3 Disrupters hit and 2 phasers hit the #1 shield for 9 damage points!

This is for real now. The Federation ships continue to close the range.

Expecting drones to start flying and torpedoes next.

Current State of Each Ship at the start of Turn 2. Players get a screensnap of their ships and the map through their email. They then tell me what they will do in the phase/impulse. So far, it has played quite quickly in PBEM terms and with little player record keeping required.

You're doing an awesome job, Craig, and your record keeping and attention to detail definitely enhance the game experience. I'm really enjoying this play-by-play snapshot of the action as it unfolds.

If anyone ever gets a change to play with Craig, I highly recommend it!

Glad you like it! I recently bought this game and really got into it without playing it first which is always risky. Moderating this game has been great and I feel much better about my investment. Can't wait to see how this turns out!

I did the same. Glad you found an avenue to turn the financial outlay into a rewarding experience, especially as you're helping others while doing it.

Priority Message!

Alpha strike from Klingon ships on Arcadia (top Federation ship) results in 23 damage points of damage total between the 2 volleys. Excellent shooting (die rolling) by the Klingon ships will knock down their forward shields.

Pray to your apathetic, pacifist gods, Pinkskins. You will meet them shortly!
