Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Coral Sea is one of those "required reading" battles for anyone who wants to truly understand the difference between a "tactical" victory and a "strategic" one. The Japanese were well on their way to capturing Australia and possibly tilting the whole game board in the Pacific. Coral Sea was a tactical draw, but it marked the end of a string of Japanese wins and set the stage for Midway. Midway of course, was both. However, a close reading of history shows that Admiral Spruance's brilliant decisions made sure that the tactical wins translated into the key strategic win of the Pacific win.

Sorry for the ramble, but the bottom line is if that's where you're getting your inspiration, you've chosen well.
