Re: tabletop

Yeah I think it's flown under the radar quite a bit. The reason it's so expensive is has lots of ships, Enterprise, Ent-D, Prometheus, Defiant, Voyager etc, and then Klingon ones as well. It does suck that the Romulan expansion is out of print but there's a Dominion expansion coming later in the year.

Re: tabletop

It arrived today! I was a bit worried because in a lot of reviews I read people complained about the ships being broken when they arrived, but thankfully mine all seem to be okay!

Massive box:



So many ships!

Re: tabletop

I'll put up some pics of it when I actually get around to playing it. Some of the ships are Ent-A, Prometheus, Voyager, Defiant, Ent-E, Reliant. The Rotarran is in the Klingon fleet .

It's pretty cool the way you choose your fleet, each ship has a size and at the start of the game you choose what size fleet you want, so say it's 10 you might end up with a size 2, size 3, size 4 and size 1, or you could end up with a size 6 and size 4.

yes, brings back memories of childhood.
Found a copy searching through the spare room at my grandparents house. Never found the rules though, and being a kid i just moved the counters around at random.

It's a fun interpretation of the War Of The Roses.

Re: tabletop

I played Fleet Captains last night. We messed up on a few rules but still had a blast playing it. I was the Federation and my friend was the Klingon Empire. I had the Reliant, Excelsior, Enterprise-A and Voyager in my fleet. I started out well with the Excelsior finding some rare latinum deposit and brought that back to my starbase. The Enterprise-A didn't fare so well however, being caught in a black hole and only just escaping by the skin of its teeth. The Reliant sadly got caught in an alternate universe and got swapped with a ship from that universe, the Yosemite.

That, however, was a stroke of luck because it was a science vessel and a lot of my missions were to make sensor tests in a nebula.

Meanwhile the Klingons were gradually expanding and encountered a mirror universe, which forced us to swap our hands of cards. They also encountered the Nexus, but thankfully that was just on the edge of the galaxy and quickly passed without majorly affecting either of us.

As our fleets moved through space we grew closer and closer to each other. The Klingons cloaked and sent out sensor echos so I wasn't sure which ship was which. The Excelsior made a daring run to try and take on a Bird of Prey and managed to do some damage, but couldn't quite destroy. Big mistake. The Klingons, seeking revenge, sent the majority of their fleet to deal with the Excelsior. I assigned Spock to try and lend his expertise but with three against one the odds were not looking good. The Klingons hit me with a barrage and the Excelsior looked doomed...but in a moment of heroism Spock sacrificed himself to prevent the ship from being destroyed!

However, it was somewhat hollow because the Excelsior was unable to breakaway from the Klingons and the Empire quickly finished the ship off with their next attack.

After the Excelsior was destroyed I was able to bring in a reinforcement so I chose the Prometheus, hoping to use its multi-vector assault mode to fight back against the Klingons but then I completed a senson and engine test on a class-M planet and that won me the game.

Did anyone do anything special for Tabletop day?

^Holy crap! It's like the entire history of Trek (and all its anomalies) compressed into one game! Not that this is a bad thing mind you, I'd love to play the game myself some day.

Yep! And there are so many more encounter cards that we didn't get to (I know for sure there's a Tribble one in there), so I'm looking forward to discovering what else they've included.

Re: tabletop

Good old days. I'd really like to try Fleet Captains, but I'm not sure if I ever will. The high price and difficult to find expansions are an issue for me, sadly. :/

Re: tabletop

There's only been one expansion, the Dominion one isn't due out until August.
