This was the game we played on my birthday. I played the Orion (Ph-1 boat), My brother played the E4/APT, and my dad chose the F5. I was disloyal, the F5 wasn't. But we didn't know that, until a certain point.

On turn one, the LR and E4/APT set 24, the F5 set 8. I hetted and tried to escape, but my brother realized and gave chase, copying my speed of 32. Early on, The F5 fired at me and I stupidly fired back. We didn't hurt each other due to reinforcement. I started my turn at the E4. I took his barrage but it didn't penetrate my shield (Thank you stealth coating!). Then on impulse 8 we passed and had our ships' rears facing each other at range 1. I should also note that I did reveal my red card.

On turn two, The E4 set 24, the F5 set 16, My LR set Backwards 24 Shocked Shocked Shocked !!! (Thank you engine doubling!) I met him at range 1 with our ships' rears facing each other, but I could still fire 5 ph-1's into his rear shield. His return fire was useless. His ship was wreaked (not the APT, mind you), for the E4's back sheild is tiny. The F5 manuvered for a shot at me, dealing minor damage. By now, most of my shields were mostly gone, But I had few internals.

On turn three nothing of any real value happened. I hit the E4 again, leaving it in bad shape. I took a lot of damage, but was still able to fight while using engine doubling.

On turn 4, I decided to escape. I set 24 with engine doubling and prepared to run. The F5 came up to range 1 of me though, and fired two overloaded distruptors!he rolled twin 5's! (Thank you stealth coating!) Shocked Shocked Shocked

At that point the others agreed that they would just declare Emegency Decel and let me escape. I won! Very Happy

LESSONS:
1. Badly coordinated attacks in battle with more than one player are a killer. If they had come in together on one shield, They would have won.
2. The Orion LR is a terrific little ship.
3. The dice are always nicer on your birthday! Very Happy

Sounded exciting!

One thing, though. If an Orion doubles engines, it doesn't get the stealth coating bonus that Turn.

The only thing that I am going to say is this: there are so many 'OOPS, YOU CAN"T DO THAT' in this report that it is not even worth talking about. Rolling Eyes

Ow, oops. Hmm...

Well, nobody called me on it Embarassed

I think I might have had trouble had those hit, but at the speed I had maintained on that turn I could have probably gotten enough distance to escape anyway...

At least I'll know for next time. Thanks Mike.
