My (non-G3) Annex #10 says for the Tholians to see also "Civilian small freighter". I have always assumed that was a note for the WT. Module M uses the exact same schematic as the small freighter variants.

Is there a list of the ships that are described but don't have SSDs?
|By Gary Carney (Nerroth) on Saturday, June 14, 2014 - 06:10 pm: Edit|
The R-section for the Romulan DemonHawk modular dreadnought (R4.95) states that the ship:
Cannot use F (Mauler), E/M (Aegis), or J (Pl-S) modules.
|By Stewart Frazier (Frazikar2) on Sunday, June 15, 2014 - 09:42 pm: Edit|
Gary, I believe that those are the SP-F/M/J and the SK-E...also the SP-U/SK-C (heavy fighter/PF) combination can't be used...

R1.86 General CUT - The way I read the rule the ship did not have drones until Y165. The SFBOL definition file has drones from the ships launch. Am I misreading the rule or should there be drones from Y130?
|By Ed Meister (Edthefed) on Saturday, June 21, 2014 - 03:03 pm: Edit|
When looking at the Master Fighter Chart, for most fighters (F-18 for example), there is listed the F-18, then F-18M. The speed is doubled, so I assume it has something to do with warp booster packs. But the fighters have higher damage points and BPVs plus also carry more drones. What does the "M" represent? I know "E" is for an EW fighter. And I understand the upgraded F-18B,C, etc. But I've been researching what "M" means and haven't been able to figure it out. Thanks!
|By Matthew Potter (Neonpico) on Saturday, June 21, 2014 - 03:06 pm: Edit|
M designates a Megapack is present. Those rules are introduced in module J2.

The opening text says "On most, but not all, ships of this type, the drone racks were phaser-2 LS/RS prior to Y165."
If you want to run a Kzinti Armed Cutter in Y130 you can decide to have type-A drone racks with Speed-8 (upgradeable to Speed-12) drones, single or double space. Same with a Klingon or a Federation or a WYN Armed Cutter. You can also decide to just go with the all phaser armament. In Y165 things change because faster drones start becoming available, and empires that used drones were more prone to using the drone armed version (again, Kzinti, Klingon, Federation, or WYN) and the plasma empires (Inter-Stellar Concoridum, Gorns, Romulans) started installing plasma-D racks, and any of these might also operate a phaser armed version still.
Even so, Armed Cutters operated by the Hydrans, Lyrans, Lyran Democratic Republic, Tholians, Seltorians, Vudar, and Jindarians would only operate the phaser-armed version.
The Andromedans and Orions would in general never operate Armed Cutters, although either might under "Special Scenario Rules" be operating such a ship in a specific scenario as some sort of deception operation.
Carnivon and Paravian Armed Cutters would be phaser armed versions (Death Bolts would not operate from such a ship) only.
It is not known if an Armed Cutter Variant was operated in the Omega Octant, but probably so although it may have been very different empire to empire than the standardized form used in the Alpha Octant, i.e., each empire in the Omega Octant may have had something that approximated the Alpha Octant Armed Cutter.
There were probably not Armed Cutters in the Magellanic Cloud given the size of the pinnaces, which with self-defense packs are about as close as they would probably get.
In Module C4: Frax; drone armed or phaser armed, Qari; drone armed or phaser armed, Triaxian; plasma-D armed or phaser armed, Sharkhunters; plasma-D armed or phaser armed, Barbarians; depends on empire being simulated, Flivvers; drone armed or phaser armed, Deltans; drone armed or phaser armed, Britanians; drone armed or phaser armed, Canadi'ens; plasma-D armed or phaser armed, [MODULE P6] Hispaniolans; drone armed or phaser armed, [STELLAR SHADOWS JOURNAL #1] Eighth Air Force: phaser-armed only.
Module E3 Boark Star League; phaser armed only.
Module E4 Peladine Republic: drone armed, plasma-D armed, or phaser armed.

Thanks Steve. I ended up re-reading the rule and taking each sentence one at a time to get the whole meaning.

This is less a question about ships than a question about SSDs. Have "corrected" SSDs for the D7-based X-ships ever been published? In the version of Module X1 that I have, the Klingon DX and DXD have #3 shields that are not the same strength as the #5 shields. The #3 shields on both those ships are 32 boxes but the #5 shields are 34 boxes. Similarly, in Module X1R the D7AX and MD7X have this same asymmetric shield arrangement. Finally, the Romulan KMRX has the asymmetric DX shield arrangement rather than the symmetric K7X arrangement. I have always assumed this asymmetry was an error and, while it isn't really a big deal, it has been a minor annoyance to me for years. (So why am I only bringing it up now? I'm not sure. I have this vague recollection that I may have brought it up some years ago but I can't recall for certain.)
Assuming the above-mentioned ships are not supposed to be asymmetric like this, have corrected versions been published? If so, where? If not would it be possible for ADB to publish a packet of these ships and sell them for a couple of dollars, the way they sell packets of extra copies of the Captain's Log SSDs?

There is no reason that a Federation Armed Cutter would not have the drone option prior to Y165 and thus operate type-A drone racks. Same goes for the Deltans, Hispaniolans, and Qari when type-G drone racks are not available. Further, the Peladine as they currently stand could operate a drone-A version. And any of these might have the phaser-2 and drone-A version.
Note that you have the Hydrans twice in your Phaser-2 (Ph-X) phaser-2 (phaser/drone) entry.
Civilian Cutters operated by non-governmental organizations in most empires might be the phaser-2 (in the phaser-X slot) version.

You have to remember that armed cutters are "generic" and as such are not only operated by all (or almost all) empires (note that in your table even the Jindarians should be listed as a Caravan that has set up light housekeeping and local trade inside an asteroid belt might use some of these as protection for isolated, as in a different part of the asteroid field than the main ships, mines), but that within most empires some will be used by 'civilian non-governmental agencies.' Thus while a "drone variant" of the Armed Cutter might be very rare operated by Star Fleet or some other government agency (say the Police forces, or the exploration branch) such a variant might be used in Federation space even before Star Fleet formally adopted drones on a larger scale by a corporation. But do not think of them as just "fleet" units only used by the Navy.
Also note that in your table you have "Peladine" twice (back to back) in your P1/PL-D line.
