Just got done with a Twilight Imperium game which saw the Nekro Virus use their Flagship, the Alastor, to successfully take control of Mecatol Rex. Later they moved the Alastor out accompanied by three Dreadnaughts. This powerful task force was assaulted by a group of four Crusiers and four Destroyers. The first turn saw half the attackers blown up and all of the defending ships damaged.

At the start of the second turn, singing praises to the Yin, one of the remaining Brotherhood Destroyers rammed the Alastor and thus annihilated every ship in that sector of spacecool. I thought it was a wonderfully thematic encounter and a good example of how a cold machine intelligence could be taken by surprise by the human spirit.

Fun anecdote. Probably not the smartest move on the part of the virus.

The next expansion should include actual enhancers to implant in the Nekro player, for a more immersive experience for all involved.
