Star Fleet Battles Recap – Dec 2013

Game Recap, 2013­12­22

We played three Star Fleet Battles games this time around:

#1: Josh and Tony

Josh and I played the introductory duel between a Klingon D7 Battlecruiser (Josh) and a Federation Heavy Cruiser using the Standard Game Rules. The ships approached each other. Josh pelted the Federation Cruiser with medium­range disruptor fire during the first turn. As the second turn progressed, the ships closed to range and opened fire. The Klingon ship lost a shield and suffered some minor internal damage. The Federation ship also took a pounding, but not enough to penetrate the shields. Turn three began, and the Klingon ship put a tractor beam on the Federation ship. The Klingon was able to hold the Federation ship at range 1, preventing it from launching its two remaining photon torpedoes. The Federation ship blasted the Klingons with all its phasers, penetrating another shield and scoring more internal damage. The Klingon ship fired its phasers, taking out the front shield on the Federation ship and removing all the phasers and two of the photon torpedo launchers. As turn four began, the Klingon ship attempted to hold the Federation ship, but was unable to outbid the Federation Cruiser, so it was released. The Federation ship sped away, launching shuttles in its wake. The Klingon ship also launched shuttles. The shuttles fired shots at the cruisers, scoring some additional damage. The Federation ship swung around and positioned itself for one last pass with the photon torpedoes. Only one of the two hit, though, only doing minor shield damage. The Klingons again launched disruptors, scoring more damage on the Federation Cruiser. The Federation ship sped away, withdrawing from the combat.

Congratulations to Josh! A well­ played first battle!

#2: Nick and James

Nick and James played a battle, with Nick playing a Klingon D7 Battlecruiser, and James playing a Kzinti ship. The Klingons launched disruptors at medium range, but were unable to do much damage, as only one out of four scored damage. As the ships closed, the Kzinti unleashed drones on the Klingons, who were unable to counter the incoming missiles.

Congratulations to James! Our condolences to Nick and his unbelievably bad dice rolls… Some incompetent Klingon disruptor crews are now floating in deep space for their inept behavior!


#3: Gren and Andrew

Gren and Andrew played a battle, with Gren playing the a Romulan Cruiser, and Andrew playing a Gorn Battlecruiser. This was a challenging matchup, since both sides use plasma torpedoes as their primary heavy weapons. The dance began, with exchanges of torpedoes, both real and fake (pseudo). The Romulan was placed in a tractor beam and pounded on, removing the ship’s torpedo launchers. With half of its phasers also gone, the Romulan ship withdrew.

Congratulations for Andrew for a well­ played second game!
