Starfleet Battles Recap 3.15.2014

Game Recap, 2014-03-15

Game #1: Klingons vs. Federation

Robert and Tony each played a Federation Heavy Cruiser (CA) versus Gren and James, who each played a Klingon D7 Battlecruiser (D7).

The two sides closed. The Klingons launched disruptors against the lead Federation CA, eliminating its front shield reinforcement and causing minor damage to the #1 shield. On turn 2, the Klingons turned away, with the Federation ships in hot pursuit. The Klingons launched drones to harass the CAs. The Federation ships eliminated the drones with phaser fire, then unleashed weapons at James’ D7. The attack tore down the D7’s shield and caused a large amount of internal damage. However, due to unusual dice rolls, the attack did not strip the target ship of its weaponry, instead causing mostly hull and power system hits.

The Klingons turned in toward the Federation ships, again unleashing weapons at the lead CA, while locking it in a tractor beam to hold it. The combined attack from the two D7s tore into the CA, stripping it of almost all its weapons and leaving it with less than half its original power remaining. The supporting CA lended what aid it could, but the attack was less effective than expected. The lead CA was destroyed, and the second fled.

Congratulations to Gren and James on a battle well-played.

 

Game #2: Kzinti vs. Lyrans

Robert and Tony again teamed up, this time as a Kzinti flight group (Robert’s Light Cruiser and Tony’s War Destroyer; CL and DW). James and Gren played a Lyran War Destroyer and a Cruiser, respectively.

The groups moved to engage. The Kzinti and the Lyrans exchanged some medium-range disruptor fire, which did little more than chew away shield reinforcement.  As the range grew closer, the Lyran DW spooled up two ESG fields. The Kzinti closed to four-hex range and unleashed their alpha strike,  consisting of overloaded disruptors and phasers at the Lyran DW. The Lyran retaliated with their own strike at the lead Kzinti DW. The Kzinti drones impacted the ESGs on the Lyran lead ship. James closed to range 1 and put the Kzinti DW in a tractor beam.

At the beginning of the next turn, the Lyran DW released its tractor beam. The Kzinti DW performed an HET and unleashed another alpha strike at the Lyran DW, followed by drones. The overwhelming attack destroyed the Lyran DW. The resulting explosion eliminated the front shield of the Kzinti DW and caused minor internal damage. Meanwhile, Gren’s Cruiser gave chase to Robert’s CL, penetrating the ship’s shield and causing moderate damage. The CL began turning to assist its escort ship.

Gren turned away from the CL and moved to finish the Kzinti DW. The Cruiser moved to the front arc of the Kzinti escort and blew it away. Robert’s CL moved to give chase, but could not keep pace with the faster cruiser. The Kzinti CL turned and fled the battle.

Congratulations again to Gren and James.

 

On a personal note, I would like to *thank* NICK for his absence, which caused me to inherit his CRAPPY DICE ROLLS for the day!!!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
