Drat, forgot about the five boxes of shields to move...

That's what I get for not playing often enough!

FC0005 is really heating up.

We have completed Turn #2, Impulse #4 and both ships have fired most of their weapons and have taken some damage. It looks as if the rest of the turn will be maneiverign for an optimal shot on impulse #1 of Turn #3.

In case you're curious, this is the current location of both ships:

Well, almost. The D5W fired two ADD rounds and took out both of the drones that had impacted the #6 shield, but they had not been removed as of this screen capture/upload.

Here's the condition of both ships:


funny enough, both players seem to think thay got came out better on the exchange.
Do remember that the Orion "hyped" both the left and right Warp Engines, so each of them will receive a point of damage at the end of the turn.

Terry, you got to do better than that! You have the +1 protection or more power than me and this is all you can do?

Come on man! Grab a Foster's and get to it! Wink Very Happy

Hi.
Curious if I am reading this correctly.

Turn 2, Impulse 2, Defensive Fire Phase.
Orion BC fire Phaser-1 [4] at Drone, killing it.
That means he fired the phaser that is marked as number 4 on the SSD, right? One of the three FA+R phaser-1s?

Turn 2, Impulse 4, Offensive Fire Phase
Orion BC fires 6 x Phaser-1 [1,2,3,4,5,6] at the D5W.

Reason I bring it up is that it looks like phaser bank #4 fires twice in the turn.

What am I reading wrong here?

Well... it looks as if you caught the sneaky Orion Pirate being... well, sneaky.
Somehow, we all three missed that.
The phaser should not have been allowed to fire for damage on the D5W.

Fortunately. it only scored one point of damge [roll of 5 at 8 hexes];
and since no one caught it... I'm going to rule that the Legendary Weapons Officer onboard the Orion BC "One Lucky Duck!" managed to re-route the power conduits from all four unused P-3s into the P-1 for an extra shot. Unfortunately, the power spike completely burned out the 2nd hand EPS conduits smuggled onto the Orion slipway that refitted the BC - so this trick can't be used again.

That's what I get for using stripped down ship card print outs to moderate these PBEM games. I didn't have the handy dandy "Weapons Used" track on the print out, so I overlooked it.

If caught earlier - I would have corrected it. But since we've already completed Turn #2 End of Turn sequence (including repairs) and progressed into Turn 3; we're moving on.

Besides, regardless of the eventual outcome of the game, but sides now have a hook to hang a loss on:

Klingons: "If only Tony had corrected the Turn #2 error, I would have had less damage and could have eeked out a win!"

Orions: "If only Tony had corrected the Turn #2 error, I could have used the extra point of energy that should not have been expended to batter away a crucial damage point or to overload the last disruptor shot and managed to pull out a win!"

If I lose due to one point of damage, then I deserve to lose. Nice catch, and thanks for letting us know about that Legendary Weapons Officer.

The story about the shorting electronics is not really fully true. We had a Dagger Team rig the short in attempt to neutralize the LWO.

I believe it's called "spin", and apparently they still practice it. Even in the 23rd century.

I spotted a while back that there are a few other points that,, erm . ., the masters have been interfering with whats been going on Smile . Everyone should have an officer assigned to look out for bizarre fluctuations in shield energy to catch such interference. Of course it could just be an error in the ships logs and the damage did really occur?


For the record, the orions took an extra 3 on turn 2 impulse 3 (1 disrupter should have missed):

range 6, 4 dirupters roll 2,1,4,5 for 12 pts. Shouldn't that be 3 hits for 3 each = 9.


And the klink took an extra 5 on turn 1 impulse 8 (an extra disrupter and some over-excited phaser energy).:

Range 10. disrupters roll for 4,5,2 for 9, that should have been for 6 and phasers roll 1,1,3,3,5,1 for 13, that should be for 11 which was a total of 17 not 22.


PS Just to be clear, I think Scoutdad is doing a great job between running several games and real life pressures, and can't be expected to get everything perfect, at the end of the day there are 2 other involved in each game to keep a check on their own game.

nag, nag, nag, nag, nag... Wink

Most of the errors seem to creep in when things get rushed and I try to hurry up and complete that last little update in the scant seconds available between other activities.
I need to just slow down an double check things - don't I?
