For those dying for more information (or worried about how this might impact Star Fleet Armada) check out the release notification from ADB's CL #44:

How similar is this to Starmada Fleet Ops?

While I appreciated the simplicity, I felt a bit constrained by this.

Will the variety of weapon traits still exist, even if the specifics have to change?

thanks

Certainly, work on Fleet Ops informed some of what went into this new edition, but I think you'll find it's much closer to SAE than to SFO.

The variety of weapon traits will remain.

Too bad Lyons is too far from Paris just to have a game. :(

The three forms of defense are:

ECM: Reduces the effective firepower of attacking weapons.

Shields: Deflects incoming fire.

Armor: Absorbs damage that gets past the first two lines of defense.

I'm really looking forward to this!

I'm in Marauder's play group. So while our time is very limited as he mentioned, we will be eagerly scrutinizing the new system.

I love this idea. This gives you much more flexibility in starship defenses when messing in Starmada with the universe tech your trying to mimic.

Count me in for playtest.

I know one of the things I loved about the Compendium edition (boy that takes me back), was the fact that you had tons of weapons already made and could just choose to build your designs. Phasers were already part of that mix. It made for quick ship building...
