Re: Do SUs Matter?

What if you have a fairly weak weapon, let me make up some numbers, with a damage track something like 3 2 1 1 0 If all the weapons can fire in the same arc there is no negative modifier so it will do 3 damage and still do 1 damage if the ship is working under a -2 penalty due to having taken weapon...

Re: Ship Classes and Hulls

Got comments and a question about mass and hulls... Having been in the Navy, and served on a carrier, I can tell you those things are big. Once, we were alongside one of the resurrected battleships. Those guys were physically a lot smaller than a modern carrier. But whereas the carrier has a lot of ...

Re: Ship Classes and Hulls

Nobody wants to guess at the size of a Battlestar or Star Destroyer? They seem like really big ships, like much bigger than Star Trek ships, but thats just my feeling from looking at them. I'd think a Battlestar might be large battleship size, 20-24 hull.

Re: Ship Classes and Hulls

I would also note that in Star Fleet Battles, the original dreadnoughts came first, followed later by a small number of even larger ships that got called battleships, so whether by purpose or accident, they managed to preserve the historical relationship of which came first and which was bigger.

Re: Ship Classes and Hulls

Actually, I tend to use the term Battleship and Dreadnought interchangeably. Yes, a "dreadnought" was a WWI-ish era term for what would later become termed a battleship. I think its the more modern sic-fi games that have resurrected the term and applied it to a large battleship, I'm guessi...

Ship Classes and Hulls

I'm trying to get a feel for the various hull sizes and what players typically use them for. This is kind of a two part question. Part 1. What do most of you think of as a "cruiser" or a "dreadnought" etc... Being new to Starmada, all I really have to go on is the Klingon, Romula...

Re: D7 ship build

Two places actually. I got my original copy, a hard copy, from ADB. But then I decided i wanted a more portable version for my iPad, which I am using as we speak, so i bought a pdf of the rules and ship cards from e23. I bought it last night. I just checked the value of the D7 and the big number in ...

Re: D7 ship build

Thanks for the detailed example! That helped a lot. I had most of it right.

But... I thought the rating of the D7 was 282, not 275.

Re: D7 ship build

Also, I was not 100% sure on the space calculation of the faceted shields.
