Another initial hack at trying to figure out the game by designing up some ships. I'm showing a family resemblance while trying to characterize each ship.

EDIT: So far I've played twice with the prototype and lost both times. Not sure quite why but it's partly the lower hit points. The Ouroboros ship tends to give you a good jolt first time and low hit points have problems with this (though even a big ship can succumb.

EDIT: If you are looking for a HARD ship, the prototype isn't an easy ship to win with. Liberal use of the warp out is probably required. The Evasive option isn't useful often enough and you usually want to shoot. The limitation of removing only 1 dice from the infirmary is a bad limitation somewhat compensated for by the ability to remove 2 threats. The adaptive weapons are not really different from the Halcyon really in most cases.

The D'Deridex (Khazara) isn't bad but you still need the warp out and the cloak mechanic to survive. The torpedoes are nice but they are not able to be used very often. The fed ships get theirs off more often because of the different command die mechanic. This ship is probably on a par with the Halcyon for difficulty.
