Is there a "ship" card full of just shuttles in some module or somewhere else? Trying to recreate the Destruction of Attack shuttle group scenario from SFB, plus I have some other ideas where one of these cards would be handy.

Thanks!

No, there is no ship card only filled with shuttles. Given that shuttles in Federation Commander are weaponless, I doubt there is much demand for it. It shouldn't be that hard to just use a graph paper to keep track of the destruction of the hordes of shuttles ...

Or, you could just "strip" any of the ship cards in Communique and make a sheet with however many shuttles you want.

I have made a note to do something like this and put it in communique.

That name just doesn't fit. For "Attack!" to be in the title, the units involved should be able to inflict some damage on the target of their attack.

I am thinking more along the lines of "Die Shuttle Hordes! DIE!!"

Heh, yeah Smile I'd just named it after the Attack thing because of the other thread going at the moment, Squadron Attack or whatever it was suggested....

Add an "ed" to the end of the name and it works great.
"Shuttle Squadron Attacked"

The shuttles can still 'attack', in terms of being able to land Marines onto a planetary surface...

That is how I was planning on using them. Well, it really depends on how hot IS the surface of Tholia? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! More bloodwine!

Hod K'el, the troops have protective battle armour for hostile environments like Tholian or Hydran ships. But for Tholia, you'd need some Seltorian allies along - crack the Sphere open (it's a Dyson sphere) with the web breakers, fly the shuttles in, then land on the inner surface.

Not exactly.

If it is the Klingons, then they do NOT want to crack the Sphere open. Rather, they want to subjugate it and bring them under Klingon control. This would turn them into a Klingon subject race. This would likely require lots of troops to put down resistance and install monitoring systems to keep them in line.

If it is the Seltorians, then they just want to crack the Sphere open. "Cracking open" the Sphere would be a catastrophic event. There is nothing left to control, just ruins to loot and the occasional survivor to kill. A handful would need to be captured for later torture or vivisection as desired.
