They can send freely the pdf for those who bought the admiralty editions. Coooolll.

Federation BURKE-class Frigate, pg 47
The FC FF SSD has shields equal to 18 on all shield facings.
So that gives a shield rating of 18 x 0.3 = 5.4 = 5
So the 7 front shield is wrong, unless theres a different version of the FF out there.

The example in the Engine Power Ratio section, p34
movement orders 3L1(4) should be 3L1(5), the left sideslip adds one to speed.


I'm trying to work out the costing if any and the conversion values for
science rating, marine rating, wide turn and tight turn. So if anyone
knows, let me know.

Cheers

How does the 'free PDF' work? I mean, I got the Admiralty edition version of RA, but from cricket as the version I paid for didn't come through (still hasn't--I guess someone round here has a free copy of the book).

I've gotten mine from ADB by emailing them at marketing@starfleetgames.com.
They replied and asked for the email associated with your DriveThru RPG, or Wargame Vault account and a selfie of you with the product.
Had the PDF within a day.

Starmada Fwd = Shield #1 x 30% (rounded up)
Starmada P/S = lower of Shields #2 and #3 x 30% (rounded off)
Starmada Aft = Shield #4 x 30% (rounded down)

If the total Starmada shields do not equal 20% of the total SFB/FC Shield Boxes, a further modification is made, adding one to the forward shields or subtracting one from the Aft shields, as appropriate. In the case of the Burke, there should be 22 shields (108 x 20%), but the calculations only yield 21, so the Fwd shield gets a bump.

I'm trying to work out the costing if any and the conversion values for
science rating, marine rating, wide turn and tight turn. So if anyone
knows, let me know.

Science rating is a bit fiddly, using the ratio of Lab boxes to total boxes in SFB/FC and equating that to a percentage of space units in Starmada.

As noted in the KA/RA book, 3 SFB/FC marine boxes = 1 Starmada marine squad.

Ships with an FC turn mode of AA or A get the Tight Turn trait; turn modes of E or F yield the Wide Turn trait.

Thanks for telling me. Unless there's any actual rules I'd need from the book that would only be from that book, I probably won't bother--the email route is unlikely to yield results, and I'm not that keen on doing selfies or having pics taken of myself. I'm sure I'll probably be losing out, but I really don't like pics taken of me.

... and I get rid of the old admiralty books. Well, too bad, but it's so easy to create our own ships.

Just did a quick perusal of my email and there's nothing there, so it looks like I'm going to have to admit defeat. That's really annoying

Do what I did - get you hand holding the book, and a piece of your chin. :) Jean must have figured that was enough 'cause I got my pdf from her (and I just sent another one for Romulan). You do need a DriveThru RPG or Wargame Vault account though.

Hmmm, I'll see what I can do. I really ain't keen on taking pics of me though (to the level of "huge pit opening in stomach"--I do my level best to not have pics taken of me if I can help it), and just wondering how else I could do it so's I don't have to inflict myself on some poor unsuspecting individual...
