Star Trek Attack Wing?
Is anyone going to try Star Trek Attack Wing when it comes out later this month? First release is at GenCon. I'll bet a lot of people are going to buy the minis just for playing Star Fleet Battles and Federation Commander. Unfortunately, there's no Enterprise-A in either the starter sets or any of the Wave 1 or Wave 2 expansions. I wish someone would put up a tutorial on how to convert the HeroClix ships to a SFB/FC hexbase.

I'll be playing. I love the flightpath system that it's based on, and I think it'll be a great fit for Trek. Of course, I also love the HeroClix game, and haven't bothered trying to play SFB in years, since more elegant systems have come about, so I don't know how much my opinion is worth.

I've enjoyed playing the Star Wars: X-Wing game, which uses the FlightPath rules system that'll be in Attack Wing, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to pick it up and build a Federation flotilla...

One of my friends was at GenCon and picked up the core game and all the available expansion packs. The ships look great. I love the X-Wing game and am looking forward to seeing how AW plays in comparison.

Got the core set, NCC-1701 and USS Reliant minis this weekend.

First impressions - good quality components & cards, interesting spin on the FlightPath rules system, but I'm disappointed by the quality of the minis. Detail level just isn't as good as FFG's X-Wing minis, and the Constitution-class is tiny.
