Again, I was the Fed in this battle. I knew I'd need a good arc and power ship to defeat two smaller ships.

Turn 1: Both of his ships came in at speed 16 at different angles (Bad Move). I proceeded forward at speed 8. I ended 9 hexes from the E4 and 12 from the E5. He scored minor damage to my #1 and #2 sheilds, while I Used my energy to bring 3 photons to fully overloaded status.

Turn 2: My opponent's plan was to get his E4 to overshoot my pursuing CS. However, he miscalculated and ended in the exact same hex as me. I think you can guesswhat happened next. With his E4 Destroyed, and one unoverloaded photon left, I attacked the F5 and scored four internals. Throught the whole turn the only internal I took was a burn through from the E4. I beamed four marines to the F5 under the delusion that I could capture it. I took out one enemy marine and he destroyed three of mine.

Turn 3: Bottom line is that I Smashed A whole lot of internals through his rear sheild and did a Hit-and-Run to get his last distruptor. He managed to get 7 damage through my forward sheild. At that point he forfieted and I counted that as disengagement for victory purposes.

Federation: 70.15 points (Minor Victory)

Klingon: 14.5 points (Draw)

We're one-for-one. I'll post the final match once we play it.

Victory conditions raising their ugly heads again.

Y'see, in my eyes, that's:

Feds: Kicked a$$
Klinks: A$$es kicked.

End of story. None of this 'draw/minor victory stuff Wink

Maybe Kang's rather flamboyant descriptives of victory levels should be in the BoM book???

And before anyone wonders if "descriptives" is a legitimate word, remember "strategery?"

True. I think the problem is counting a forfeit as a 'forced disengagement'. A forfeit is a 'surrender'. If you forfeit to a Fed, he might let you leave peacefully. If you forfeit to a Lyran, you end up as the guest at dinner. So, I'd count a forfeit as a crippled ship at best. But either way, in the minds of the players it is pretty clear who won, and who lost.
