Dan, plasma fights are always on a location or floating map.

The Stingers' phaser-Gs are excellent plasma shredders, if you can draw the plasma over the stingers prior to impact, which is difficult to arrange.

I think it was a location map. But Jon was happy to close the range to eat my plasma anyway, so I didn't really need to run him into a corner.

Technically, it need not be entirely non-historical - there was a limited deployment of Romulan forces to the Hydran front during the General War:

Quote:
There were many tactical battles in Hydran space from Y171 through Y185, but the Hydrans were never again a strategic threat. At one point, the Romulan squadron led by Admiral Roxanna Vulpes was deployed to this theater, resulting in the tiny handful of historical Romulan-Hydran battles. The Romulans remained only a few months, despite having originally been assigned to remain there for at least two years.


Whether or not said actions included a fight between a Dragoon and a FireHawk or not is up for debate, but maybe...

Not a hard-and-fast thing, but I always thought it would make more sense for the Roms to send Kestrel-series ships to the Hydran border.

They could get spare parts and structural repairs from the klinks, who'd built the things in the first place.

Just my PoV.

Good points, Dan. Anyway as I explained in the OP, the reason I'd been inspired to pick a Romulan ship was 'cos I'd seen a real live Romulan in Torquay.....

I love non-historical style duels because they match ships that were not designed to fight each other in the first place. What's the point a Klingon having an anti-drone when fighting a Gorn or a Romulan? Fascinating...
