Do you have an estimate on when the SFU Unity books will be out?

My understanding is the new Klingon Armada will hit the ADB web store this weekend.

Hello I am wondering when the unity versions of Klingon, Romulan, etc. Actually any of the starfleet universe versions of Starmada Unity are going to be released anytime soon. I thought they were going to be released in March or April of this year but so far as I can tell nothing yet. I am desperate for some Unity, SFU style as I really enjoyed nova . Can anyone answer this question please? Thank you in advance.

ADB is really swamped by their Shapeways miniatures line right now. When it eases up it'll come out then.

What does everyone think of the new rules? Pretty good I would say. The only concern I have is that shield reinforcement might encourage turtling but I haven't played yet so I could be wrong on that.

Edit- Oops. I was wrong about shield reinforcement. It can only be used once per volley.

I just got my copy yesterday so I haven't done more than skim through them. The new rules look great for SFU but I'm disappointed that the construction info is missing for the new Ship and Weapon traits. :(

Just got my copy. Bit confused about PP and how it is applied, per weapon type per battery or per weapon mount.
Example if I had a C8 firing all its Disruptors overloaded would it cost 12pp, 4pp, or 2pp? I suspect it's 12pp but could not 'prove' it.
May I second the request for the construction costs for the new traits?

Well, just contacted ADB, hoping they'll give me an upgrade as I bought mine at my FLGS.

PP costs are per individual weapon mount, paid at the time it is fired.

Okay, got my copy of SFB Unity.

Thoughts (of a Rules Lawyer):
New Traits (Engine Power Ratio, Tight Turn, Wide Turn, Anti-Drone) could stand to be put under their own heading for ease of looking up.
Power rules could stand to have their own section, or maybe a table summarizing what generates and uses power. (Likely needed more in future supplements).

Found the rules to be a little clunky, but then again I'm a Rules Lawyer so... :roll:
And as a rules lawyer (and someone with a whole bunch of SFB material eagerly awaiting conversion), was wondering if there's any ORAT/DRAT modifiers for the new traits (including #PP and Evp)? I ran several designs randomly through Drydock and found that for the most part they match values in the book; which seems to indicate that all the SFB stuff doesn't affect Combat Ratings.
