Not really. Asteroids (particularly the cinematic asteroids) would likely void the cloak anyways. "Sir, sensors are picking up large energy spikes in the Hydapes belt, the signature matches that of deflection shields." "Weapons officer, target the location of those spikes and fire all weapons!"

Mines, same situation - depending on the trigger. There is still mass in that location.

And if the counter *isn't* your actual location, then perhaps the sensor 'ghost' obviously doesn't mesh with the incoming scans and can be discounted. "Sir, the sensors report a vessel in the Hydapes belt, but is not picking any energy spikes from deflection shields." "Ensign, ignore that signal and focus on the other two..." I.E. You remove the counter.

History repeats itself!

I can see the old headlines come around again.

"Mysterious rise in the sales of ping pong balls and black paint!" :)

"Sir, there are more of those black blips on sticks."
"Well Don't just stand there - Blast Them!"
"Must have been something cloaked, they just . . . melted away."

Done. Since this is version 1.0, will you be posting a folder with counters/markers and other tidbits on the catalog page? I had thought they might be included at the end of the rules with the blank ship displays.

Cool. Thanks. I am hoping to play a few little test games soon and I was hoping there would be official counters and markers rather than my chicken scratch on a card-stock square... "is that a zero or a six???" :)

Erm, I've tried various usernames/passwords, but I can't remember entering one at the time of order. I paid by paypal, where abouts would I have entered a new username/password?

Is is possible to get the account reset?
