At last, even if a couple days later than expected!

No O'Brien or Secondary Torpedo Launcher, but I did call admiral Haden and the HESS reprint.

More like "Terryble," am I right? laugh shake

Glad to see HESS, really liking the ship ability, and Aft Torpedo Launcher is potentially a big deal too.

(edit: pity the Yeager can't use ATL though)

Another okay expansion. So fun stuff that would be superb in a no 50sp limit environment.

Overall, I like it.

Wow, they're really trying to make torpedoes work, aren't they?

If I may ask, since the ship itself is only 26 points -- why is the 50 point limit a barrier here? 24 points seems to be ample room to make use of the upgrades. Nothing is particularly expensive preventing it from being used on a costlier ship either. Other than Quantums being 6, of course, but that is expected.

The Aft Torpedo Launcher is pretty nice, if that's what you're referring to. Was definitely one of the weak points of the Nebulas, which are the primary beneficiaries of the upgrade (also: Constitutions which are multiplying rapidly it seems).

Er... it was already in the appropriate place. That was unnecessary.

well if you drop maxwell on any ship(4+ attack dice) with the dorsal phaser array you can create quite the monster. In terms of the torps, drop a few of those on something like the pegesus with free evades or TL and you begin to shape a decent 2 ship fleet, personally i think this ship is after my own heart since I own the enterprise E prometheus pegasus and akira i see this set of upgrades with really fit into my "arsenal" of current fed ships. that doesnt take into account i have 7+ fed ships and already plan on getting another enterprise E just for the dorsal array.

Sadly it doesn't self-immolate and resurrect itself as I'd hoped

Arsenal looks to work best when paired with two sets of timer torps. You can fire every single turn. The trouble is that right now that is a 14SP investment (barring cost reducers).

Spending 4SP to be able to fire every other turn (though with good actions economy) seems a little steep, but then again maybe I could make it work.

I kind of picture:
32 Enterprise-E
4 Spock/Sisko6/Maxwell6
3 Sakonna
3 Chekov
2 Arsenal
3 Photon Torpedoes
3 Photon Torpedoes
50

Though, on the cheap:
16 NX-01
4 Spock/Sisko6/Maxwell6
3 Sakonna
2 Arsenal
3 Photon Torpedoes
3 Photon Torpedoes
0 EHP
31SP

So maybe it works better than I was thinking.
