Wave 1 Expansion Pack Images

13 posts in this topic

The images for these packs are up on BoardGameGeek:

 

Defiant, Kronos One, IRW Praetus and Jem'Hadar Patrol ship.

 

You can't see all the cards but you can get an idea of stats, manoeuvers, etc.

 

Looks like there's some useful stuff.

I'm so happy about all the DS9 crew cards with the Defiant! It'll probably be my only buy for this wave, although I might also get the Praetus since I'm playing Romulans.

Nice, the T'varo style Bird of Prey.  Very happy to see that, and also the Giant Defiant.  Romulans really need a cheap ship.  Hell, I could see myself fielding quite a few of those.  I'd imagine the generic is around 12 points.  Glad it has cloak and no shields.  Sure hope there's some sort of explanation for how that's going to work.

Text on the Praetus reads "You may use the Cloak action even if you have no active shields.  Whenever you choose the Cloak action, roll 1 attack die.  One a Battlestations result your hull sustains 1 damage."  Seems like those old 1st generation cloaking devices weren't very reliable... hehe

Well they were experimental at the time (from what I remember).

I like the fact that the Defiant's cloaking device is a device upgrade and not part of it's stat bar... gives you the option of playing original Defiant or Defiant II.... plus you can give the cloaking device to other ships... sure it costs 9 points on any other ship and you'll have to hear about it from the Romulan Ambassador.. but hey!

I couldn't quite zoom in enough to read it. Pretty nice ability if you're in a tight spot and think you're about to get pounded, but I think I'd be using it more like a 'save my ship' button than rolling for cloak up front.

I didn't see this card originally, but knew it would happen sooner or later. Should be interesting to see Picard cloak the D.

 

Any idea on when these are released?

Sorry about the teaser pics above that I got from BGG but if you go to their site you can get a better quality of photo (I believe) more pixels I think someone said and these will enlarge up to allow most of the text to be read.

 

I might see if I can have a go later.
