I notice in the new Communique it is stated that the Fast Patrol Ships will "definitely be done in 2014". My FC rules collection is not complete yet, but are there rules for Fast Patrol Ships and Tenders in this system yet, or are they going to be part of the eventual "Borders of Madness" supplement?

That is still all to be decided.

Personally, I hope we add gunboats (aka Fast Patrol Ships) to the main game, but relegate tenders to Border of Madness. (Reasons explain elsewhere.)

And, even though it isn't going to get done this way, I would like to see gunboats done BEFORE fighters. They fill needs in Federation Commander, whereas fighters fill no needs, but merely add problems.

If PFs and/or tenders were to be done in 2014, would it have to be all (in a full printed module) or nothing?

Perhaps one option could be to offer playtest gunboat/tender rules in either CL49 or CL50.

Another could be to present such samples in a file on e23, akin to the OPRB.

Depending on what other candidates are viable for such roles, I guess.

Gary, you are asking the unknowable. None of that stuff has likely been decided yet.

Thanks! I'll just wait to see when the minis are actually available and see if they have been introduced to FC yet at that point. Not that the issue will stop me from buying a squadron or two for each race, but being able to use them would be nice. Laughing
