Is there anywhere that has a complete list of ship charts other than those simply covered in the Communiques for download?

Failing that is it possible to order individual ship charts without buying a booster, for example could I buy 20 large freighter cards for example?

The Master Ship Chart (which lists every ship published for the game, up-to 10-3-08 ) is in the Resources section of the Commander's Circle.

I think only SVC could answer your second question.

I have seen the master ship chart but it is the actual PDF for the individual ships on it that I am after.

Since the cards are printed in batches and there's a set number of each, I don't know that ADB can sell 20 of a single card w/o running short of others.
I do know that there has been talk of a "convoy" booster that only contains cards forthe target-rich enviroment found in the typical convoy...although tat's only going o have a couple of each size freighter crds in it.
Your best bet is to print out several ofthe Communique freighters and then laminate them yourself.

I was wondering about the whole batch print thing, ah well.

The problem is that there is no large freighter in the communiques (squadron scale) otherwise I would have no problems printing them off and laminating them.

I guess I will have to keep fingers crossed for a convoy booster and make do with that for now.

You could always request that Steve add one to the next Communique. I'm sure that would be an easy request to fulfill.

Or, you could scan your existing F-L ship card and then print more copies for your own personal use.

Jon, the other thing you could do is use the Large Armed Freighter Card from Comm 32 and just mark destroyed the extra boxes before you start playing. I don't have the cards in front of me but I think you delete 4 engines from each side the LS/RS and 2 FA Phaser should get you close to a standard freighter.

You can always email Leanna (sales@starfleetgames.com) and ask her about buying individual cards. We do not do that for the B-series "bonus" cards but I think she would sell you freighters.

As for the convoy booster, email me and remind me to put that on the schedule. It's too easy not to.

What are the "bonus" cards? Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere.

Bonus cards are included as part of each of the Booster Packs.

Typically, each Booster contains about 6-7 ship cards that are simply more copies of the cards found in the Border or Attack module that they relate to. This is so that you can create a larger squadron than you could if you just had the Border module, which contains only one copy of each ship card.

But they also contain a 'bonus' card which is not found elsewhere except in that Booster.

For example, Booster #1 contains more copies of some of the ship cards from Klingon Border, and the bonus is the Federation Command Cruiser, if I recall correctly.

Boosters #2 and #3 contain more Klingon Border ships, and the bonus cards are, again if I recall correctly, the Klingon D7C command cruiser, the Kzinti CC and the Tholian heavy cruiser [Booster #3 has two bonus cards. Wow!]

Hope this helps!

Atomic, I believe what SVC is referring to is the Unique Cards in the Boosters. Things like the various Command Cruisers the Orion OK6 or the Wyn Shark CA comes to mind.
