It is interesting, could even play it solo because of strict victory conditions. Are there points limits on ships? At least 20 SP would have to be there for the fed fighter squadron. Assume we have just 3 "bases involved in this correct?
hm.. i would say..for the fed player with the one ship and fighter SQ..i think about..80 or 100 points would be good (i know i would like as much points as i could get i like useing that one card that came with the Dreadnought that takes no space to be placed and adds on one crew card)
and ya it is meant for solo but anyone can probly get away with 2 players
and yes just three ships your main ship any fighter SQ you pick and the mirror ship (i would use the iss enterprise cause that is the ship the game used )
EDIT: any for the hostile ships id say about 60 points for each ship (number of ships would be diffrent for each mission)
