I got my hand on the old supplement D3 Booms & Saucers supplement and -to my knowledge- it never came with counters (at least a quick internet search seems to indicate so).

So I was wondering if -aside for the supplement R2 and R3 with 1 or 2 booms/saucers (but nothing for tholians)) if there was a countersheet somewhere with several such pieces (eg. boom/saucer and the tholian rear part)??

If not, what would be a good way (to keep it clear) to indicate a seperated section? Especially if I were to use several.

Make your own counters?
It's pretty easy to do with just about any image software avaialble.

I would think what Scoutdad said would be perfect. Even if you just use MS Paint (and experiment a little to get the size right), print off what you need, numbered however you want and as specific as you want (C8/9 as opposed to D6/7 or D5, as opposed to F5 or Fed CA as opposed to BC or whatever else). Some double sided tape and an old Pop-Tarts box and you'll be in business!

You could even make the back ends for any scenario where some pesky pirates might be after an abandoned D6 hull or the Tholians have tracked down an F5.

I recall booms/saucers and rear hull counters in one project -- don't recall which --

It looks like R2 has two saucers and two rear hulls.

R3 looks to have two D6/7 rear hulls and a "J" boom. There is a B10 boom in R5.

Module C2 has two Neo-Tholian COM counters, but I do not see a back end.

I can't locate the D/C/F boom counters at the moment, but following the pattern, I imagine there are probably two printed somewhere.

If you are looking for "several," I think you'd need to make some.

That's what I though that I would have to do my own. I got the R2 and R3 (C2 is on the way) so I have a few, but not much.

I was just checking to see if there was anything out there -that my lazy side who doen't want to work hard- before starting to do my own.

But just to double check D3 "Booms and Saucer" never had any counters. Right?

I got my copy of D3 from ADB and it did not have counters.

Thanks.

I got mine from an OOP online store, there are usually pretty good and provide complete items (if not they mention it) but I wanted to double check.

So looks like it's going to be a DYI project for me...maybe I'll draft my 9 year old daughter in it Cool
