Could we get a "revised ship" version of the Tholian PCW? I want it for those huge M81 Galaxy battles that have 6+ Tholian PCs.

Also, I'd like to request full color versions of the Early Years ships at some point in time.

How many early years ships are there? If we can gather up 12, I'll make it a PDF pack on e23.

As for the web patrol corvette, it's in the booster 93 file, and we'll make a decision on that product sometime. I haven't given up on it yet, but you've read what happened when I talked to Leanna about it.

There are currently nine Early Years ships. If you want, I can recommend some more for you to pick four from. On the other hand, if you are willing, we could do a few packs of YCA/YDD/YFF with four empires per pack to give a nicer spread for everyone. I would love that, at least.

The web patrol corvette is in Booster 92, and it has already been published (ship card 926). Pinecone is purely asking for a reprint in Communique, not a laminated card (which has already been done).

EDIT: Forgot the extra Hydran card in Communique.

I know it is a long ways off, but come April, would there be too much of a backlash if there was an April Fools Communique? Maybe some kind of special Qixa ship in there as an Omega teaser?

And... why isn't the rest of the crew revolting with me?

I'll revolt later Smile

Right now, I'd say to Steve: I would most definetly buy a pdf of the Early Years ships. I would buy Pdfs of extra Early Years ships too.

OK, I am a sucker for Early Years ...

In CL39 were, Fed YCA, Klingon D4, Kzinti YCS, Lyran YCA.
In CL39S were, Hydran GRN, Rom YWB, Gorn YCL, Orion YCR
In Comm was Hydran YCC.

Add these three ships, and you get your full 12, with a full spread of EY technology:
Carnivon YCA
Paravian YCL
ISC YCL

(With the existing mix of ships, I suggest using the Paravian and ISC light cruisers, rather than the heavy cruisers, for better matchups.)

I would still much rather do the multiple PDF pack approach (with the YCA, YDD, YFF spread), but this would definitely be much quicker.

I would buy that too. I'm interested in everything Early Years.

I might even buy Pdfs of "new" Middle Years Ships.

I'd pay for EY on e23 too; I like Mike's three-ships-per-empire idea.

Would it be possible to put together an EY briefing on EY as a .PDF on e23?
With the stats foe EY weapons and the restrictions on tractors and transporters, et.c

Well, the three ships per empire idea would make this a major effort, as that would be 27 new ship cards. That is a huge chunk of effort to suddenly throw into the schedule. Doing the single pack with just 3 new ship cards is much more feasible.

And, quite frankly, I would be extremely surprised if we see another Briefing in the style of Briefing #2. That is just too many new ships in one product. I do hope that we can see some scaled back briefings in the future, though.

ESS Officer: Captain, the subject race personnel are revolting!
Klingon Captain: Tell me something I don't know!

How about that classic scenario: "Klingons Around Uranus?"

Or in the old Commander's edition SFB, Tomcats over Leebyah?

I have to scour my parents' house for that one. Good old "Moon 'em More Klodhoppy" and the "Protection Launched Overhead". Of course, it's been so many decades.....

Sorry, couldn;t resist. I'll reattach the shock collar and that will stop that.
