Thanks Kang! I'll see if I can add a few more to them yet, now how do I do this command note thing lol?

Fair enough Smile Write it up in a format similar to the 'Command Notes' in Captain's Log. If you don't have a Captain's Log to hand, try looking at the 'Coma Notes' in the Captain's Log Supplemental, an example is at:

http://www.starfleetgames.com/documents/CL40S_Supplemental_File.pdf

Then, submit it to Steve Petrick at rules@starfleetgames.com ; it's best to put 'FC Command Note' in the Subject line of your email, that will help him categorise the email properly and ease his workload. Remember to put your name and 'state', although for a UK resident we tend to use our county. Mine, I put as 'HMS Devonshire'....

Excellent mate, thanks for the tip, I'll set to that in the week!

Glad you liked the tactics, I actually really enjoy the cloak in FC, far more than SFB, but then again I didn't really play Rommies much then.

Have a great new year.

Frist of all happy new year kang, later in feburay iam starting a campaign that takes part in a parrel universe where the klingons have cloaking techology and photon torpedoes .
How this came about is the romulan fleet was partial destroyed and the klingons helped in rebuilding it and the cloaking tchhology was the reward the photons where got through spies and the orions Wink if any one is intreasted i will post this parrel universes history Wink Twisted Evil .

If it's there, I must have missed it, but I was just looking to see if Fed Cmdr has hidden cloak rules ala SFB (meaning the counter for the cloaked ship is removed form the map, and its movement tracked on paper.) As anyone tried playing this way in Fed Cmdr?? It was my favorate option in SFB, even if it is a PITA to do right.

Garth, Playing with hidden cloaks goes against one of hte basic tenants of Fed Comm - everything in the open, nothing hidden.

Battlegroup Murfreesboro always plays SFB with completely hidden cloaking rules (and it's really not that much of a PITA, if you do it consistently). But evn with our tendencies towards being precise (that's anal to most of y'all) - I can't imagine how it would work in Federation Commander.

If anyone tries it, let me know how it works out.

There are no rules for hidden cloak in Federation Commander, nor will there be. I would be very surprised if such rules would even be considered for Borders of Madness.
