Well, epack counters are always in empire colors.

But if you want an eCountersheet that is all bases, freighters, monitors, transports, and other generic units each set in empire colors, I cannot imagine anything easier to do. Email me about this so I won't forget but I can't do anything until after Origins.

Cool. I'll set a reminder to email you after origins.

There is a topic for the eCounter product.

If you post there after Origins the topic will come up as "new" on my daily sweep.

Would it be feasible and profitable to do an e-version-only of something like Monsters Attack (a compilation of every monster with its ship card and special rules)?

Scenarios could also be included.

Maybe a BoM scenario of monsters fighting monsters?

I know that sensor ships are supposed to be for BoM, but any chance we can get one sensor variant for all the empires (except Federation since they already have their destroyer scout)?

We have done a LOT of scout ships in Communique. I think that every empire has at least one by now but if we missed somebody let me know and I'll do those next.

Would there be any room for survey cruisers (such as the Fed GSC) in "vanilla" FC, or would they be kept for Borders of Madness?

I recall there being talk of doing SRs at some point, in order to work with the campaign rules due to be featured in Federation Admiral.

Obviously that is Steve's choice, but I would be very surprised if they are not included in "base FC" at this point. At worst, they are candidates for Briefing #3. At best, maybe they could be included in some kind of scout/survey module.

If SRs did become an option, would the Feds be likely to get just the one type (the GSC), or could they also get the CLS and NSR?

Neither class had the kind of in-universe prestige afforded to the Byrd-class, but they did their jobs capably for Star Fleet nonetheless.

Who knows? Right now, no one does. Answering that question would require us to know what product will have survey ships in it. In addition, we would have to know what other ships will be in it, how many ships total it will contain, how many ships the various empires will be afforded, and whatever else needs to be decided. None of that is known, nor will it be until such a product comes into view.

Right now, the one potential product that is kinda in view is Briefing #3 for the support ships. It could include survey ships. Or, it might not. It depends on what else needs to go into it. Plus, how many ships will be included total? It isn't going to be 72 like Briefing #2. I think I heard 24 at one point, but I could be miss-remembering. What support ships are necessary? What aren't?

There is no way to answer the question you are asking. I can take some educated guesses, but that is all they would be: guesses. We can't know until we are much, much, much closer to a product that includes them. We aren't there yet.

Finally, we are way, way off topic. Let's bring it back:
So, are you asking for the Fed CLS and NSR to be added to the list of requested ships?
Are you asking for non-Fed survey ships to be included?

Along with the GSC, yes.

Also yes.

Of those, I'd most like to see the ISC SR, but the class as a whole would be welcome.

(But do the Lyrans have a "standard" survey ship? I recall their SR doubling up as a tug, if I'm not mis-remembering. Something about the Far Stars Duchy needing the transport capacity along with the survey capability for each of their SR hulls, I think.)

Plus, if SRs are established as a class for Alpha, it would open the door for other regions' survey ships to show up as and when things move forward for those settings.

(Right now, the Maesrons have a Wallimi-built hull SR in SFB, plus you can use certain modules to create a de facto survey hull for the Iridani Questors, but the Probr and Trobrin would each need an SR done for SFB first. The FRA don't bother with SRs, though, since they have the Throne to gather long-range information instead.)

On a totally different subject, for those of you who kept asking for more Federation plasma ships, go check out CL#47! It includes the FFL, DWL, and NLL. The DWL is the DW with Pl-F; the NLL is the NCL with Pl-F. Both of those are brand new ships in the SFU, which were asked for first here!

Don't know if someone's already asked, but...

Naval Auxillaries might be interesting

I'd really like to see more Kzinti drone bombardment ships. They're all scouts, so that might be a problem, but looked at from another side, they could also be two-fers. Add another drone ship and scout ship for the work of only 1 ship card.

I'd like to see the CD or NCD. But if balance is the issue, the Large & Small Auxillary Drone Bombardment Ships would make be a weaker ship.

Would also fit in with the General War history. As the Kzinti's get hard pressed, they start converting freighters to drone bombardment ships so they can support fleet battles from a distance.

I have a funny feeling I've seen this somewhere before, but will ground bases be released in Communique? Haven't they already been shown in a Captain's Log?
