This is more a question for Mike West [he converted the scenario for FC], but it may well spark some discussions...

In the Briefing #1 scenario Refiner's Fire, the Romulan ships operate normally. However, in the original Captain's Log #2 scenario, and in Communique #7, they had their Cloaking Devices disabled.

Is this intentional? Just wondering....

Yes, this is intentional.

I had the "no cloak" special rule in the original edition, but it was removed during editing.

Fair enough, thanks. Was there a reason for not having that special rule in? It could have been left in as a play balance idea, perhaps.

Honestly, I don't know. It may just have been to keep the Romulan ships as standard Romulan ships.

The scenario designer's guide said that players get ticked if there's no reason for cloaking devices being disabled. Mabey that's the reason.

Aye, could be. Also, it doesn't really matter as the Roms are unlikely to need to cloak anyway, given that they are three-on-two. Still they may have wanted the option.

Also the cloak in SFB was a little more effective than in FedCom, IIRC.

There is that thing that puts new meaning to the classification: "Drone-Frigate" Very Happy

Good point. Don't get it - sorry!

Still, I've just got in from work so I have yet to reboot my sense of humour anyway.... Wink

Mabey I can help.....

In that scenario, the lexigton can use a drone as a frigate until it takes 21 damage. There are drone frigates in SFB, that have drones. This is a frigate that IS a drone.

The scenario is enough of a pain in the butt already; there's no need to make it harder for the Combine side.

What is the Combine side? The frigate-drone helps the Alliance
