Didn't want to post a bunch of ships you would have no intrest in seeing but since you asked what I could think of Razz

1. Fleet Oilers
2. Large Armed Freighter (Disr/Phot/Fus)
3. Large Armed Freighter (Drone/PlasmaD)
4. Large Armed Freighter (Phaser)
5. Large Auxillary Cruiser
6. Large Freighter (New Card with both scales Back2Back)
7. Large Freighter with Skid and Ducktail
8. Large Hospital Freighter
9. Large Ore Carrier done up as a Mobile Prospecting Base. - Civilian answer to a Operation Base?
10. Large Survey Freighter Without Special Sensors it is just a Target.

19. Small Survey Freighter Without Special Sensors it is just a Target.
20. Tramp Steamer - Can't remember where I saw this one. Might have been just a Freighter with a couple of Skids, a Ducktail, and a half Pod. This is the kind of ship my old GM would have put us on.
NOTE: I deleted the Repair Freighters from the List. Otherwise that would be 21 and 22.

POLICE SHIPS & FRIGATES
1. Hydrian Hunter
2. ISC Police Should be doable as it would involve no new rules.
3. Klingon D5I New D5 Card with ISF Info block?
4. Klingon F5I New F5 Card with ISF Info block?
5. Klingon E4I New E4 Card with ISF Info block?
6. Klingon E5 Battle Corvette
7. Klingon E5D Drone Corvette
8. Klingon G2/E3
9. Klingon G2C/E3C? Might be on the same card as the G2?
10. Kzinti Police
11. Romulian Snipe Police
12. Skiffs and or Moduler Cutters
13. Tholian Police Cutter
14. Vudar (What do they use for Custom Work?)

BATTLE ESCORT
1. Federation FBD/FBE
2. Federation DW/DWE
3. Klingon E6
4. Klingon F6D/F6E
5. Kzinti FFK/FKE or FFH/FHE
6. Romulian Jayhawk
7. Gorn BDE
8. Gorn BDH With the over sized rear bubble.

TARGETS OF OPPORTUNITY
1. Armed Recovery Transport
2. Ground Bases
3. Operational Bases Yeah it could be considered a Freighter Variant but I do not consider it one.
4. Systems Activity Maintance Station
5. Tholian Pinwheel PC/DD
6. Tholian Pinwheel CW

1. Fleet Oilers: Identical to freighter, no need.

2. Large Armed Freighter (Disr/Phot/Fus)
3. Large Armed Freighter (Drone/PlasmaD)
4. Large Armed Freighter (Phaser)
Possible, but also possible to do as a single card with "option" boxes.

5. Large Auxillary Cruiser
Possible.

6. Large Freighter (New Card with both scales Back2Back)
This request has been noted.

7. Large Freighter with Skid and Ducktail
I don't think FC needs skids or ducktails.

8. Large Hospital Freighter: I see no point in bothering.

9. Large Ore Carrier done up as a Mobile Prospecting Base. - Civilian answer to a Operation Base?
Seems more like something SFB needs, not something FC needs.

10. Large Survey Freighter Without Special Sensors it is just a Target.
I don't see much point.

11. Salvage Tugs – Harbor Tug
Seems more like something SFB needs, not something FC needs.

12. Small Armed Freighter (Disr/Phot/Fus)
13. Small Armed Freighter (Drone/PlasmaD)
14. Small Armed Freighter (Phaser)
Possible, but also possible to do as a single card with "option" boxes.

15. Small Auxillary Cruiser
Possible.

16. Small Freighter (New Card with both scales Back2Back)
17. Small Freighter with Skid and Ducktail
18. Small Hospital Freighter
19. Small Survey Freighter Without Special Sensors it is just a Target.
Same answers as above.

20. Tramp Steamer - Can't remember where I saw this one. Might have been just a Freighter with a couple of Skids, a Ducktail, and a half Pod. This is the kind of ship my old GM would have put us on.
I can sort of see this as it might bulid crossover sales with RPGers.

NOTE: I deleted the Repair Freighters from the List. Otherwise that would be 21 and 22.
Those I think might be worth doing.

POLICE SHIPS & FRIGATES
1. Hydrian Hunter: This is not a police ship, and it's already in Hydran Attack.

2. ISC Police Should be doable as it would involve no new rules.
No point in doing this at all until ISC are in the game.

3. Klingon D5I New D5 Card with ISF Info block?
4. Klingon F5I New F5 Card with ISF Info block?
5. Klingon E4I New E4 Card with ISF Info block?
I don't see any point in bothering with any of these.

6. Klingon E5 Battle Corvette
7. Klingon E5D Drone Corvette
Minor combattants, might go somewhere sometime, but could just as easily be left out of the game.

8. Klingon G2/E3
G2 is in comm-39, by the way.

9. Klingon G2C/E3C? Might be on the same card as the G2?
I don't know that this is worth doing.

10. Kzinti Police
This was in comm-36 (I think).

11. Romulian Snipe Police
We did the SeaHawk instead, but I guess we could use this for filler sometime, but wait, didn't we already do a snipe? Then I see no point in doing a police snipe.

12. Skiffs and or Moduler Cutters
So tiny that I don't see much point in putting them into FC.

13. Tholian Police Cutter
Yeah, could be done in Convoy Attack.

14. Vudar (What do they use for Custom Work?)
Small frigate.

BATTLE ESCORT
1. Federation FBD/FBE
2. Federation DW/DWE
3. Klingon E6
4. Klingon F6D/F6E
5. Kzinti FFK/FKE or FFH/FHE
6. Romulian Jayhawk
7. Gorn BDE
8. Gorn BDH With the over sized rear bubble.
Might be worth doing sometime as a booster but I wouldn't tie them to a convoy product.

TARGETS OF OPPORTUNITY
1. Armed Recovery Transport
I guess, but it seems of marginal use/interest.

2. Ground Bases
Need to do, but not part of convoy.

3. Operational Bases Yeah it could be considered a Freighter Variant but I do not consider it one.
Could be done sometime, I wouldn't make it part of convoys.

4. Systems Activity Maintance Station
Have we really not done this?

5. Tholian Pinwheel PC/DD
6. Tholian Pinwheel CW
Might do sometime, but I wouldn't make it part of convoy, and I think you'd be better to use three individual ships and a rule.

Which leaves us with

CONVOY ATTACK
1. Large freighter, front to back.
2. Small freighter, front to back.
3. Heavy freighter (ore carrier) front to back.
4. Large Armed Freighter
5. Small Armed Freighter.
6. Large Auxillary Cruiser
7. Small Auxillary Cruiser
8. Tramp Steamer.
9. Large Repair Freighter
10. Small Repair Freighter.
11. Heavy Repair/base freighter.
12. Klingon G2.
13. Kzinti POL.
14. Romulian Snipe Police
15. Tholian Police Cutter
16. Armed Recovery Transport
17. Systems Activity Maintance Station
18. Monster.
19. ????

That's 16 and three bonus ships. I might be happier doing four bonus ships and then making the third booster the destroyer escorts.

As a small note, the Klingon E5 was in Communique #20.

Glad to hear about the repair freighters. I was wondering when something like a FRD was going to come out that could come and repair ships without them having to go to a base.

I assume they'll be able to repair Frame damage between engagements.

It might be fun to have a BATS done up right (front/back) with all of the weapons options available. (Since we now have Ph-4 charts elsewhere, the new card could get rid of it, and make more room for notes.)

I'll throw it in the "new ships" topic, but since there are SVC eyes here lately, I'll point out that the Sector Base hasn't seen any FedCom presence yet, if a base would be desired for this product.

All right I was thinking about it and yeah the Snipe-A/P might be a ship better off put into a Middle Years type setting than here unless you need a filler card. But if you are going to use a Romulan Frigate for a filler I know that someone request K4R (Haven’t looked but I beat it would be almost be identical to a SEAHAWK). And one I would also like to see but it probably belongs more with the Battle Escort Booster if you do one is the K5R so does the F5W.

A New Battle Station Card would be cool since we do not have a laminated Fleet Scale Card yet, (I think…) but, the same could be said about the Juggy. Embarassed

Another Cargo Hauler I would like to see is The Federation Express Boat. But it is probably going to fall victim to the same fate that Skiffs have, it may be just too darn small, so it may have to wait for Gunboats. Crying or Very sad

As far as a monster I think Space Rams, Moray Eels, or Cosmic Clouds should be enough to scare any merchants Twisted Evil
