The line for the Klingon Doomslayer-class command cruiser (page 26) ends with: 200 points Book 1 (Error!)

Is the error a reference to something?

Thank you!

The Doomslayer and Hammerfield were customized when they were first introduced prior to the Captains Edition version of the rules. When SFB moved to Captains Edition, the customized ships were left behind. At this point you are likely better off to just treat them as standard versions of their base ships and ignore any weirdness in the stories.

I am not sure what was intended for ACTA, but I'd recommend just using the base ships there, too.

I posted this without reading everything, sadly. They do actually explain specifically under the D7C and D7L entries what happened (basically, replace the D7L from book one with these). Your explanation was good to have though, thank you!

Yeah in the Early Days of Playtesting ACTASF Book 1 the decision was made not to publish refits. Just the last ship and ignore any Year in Service Data. So things like the D7C a D7L (the K Refited Phasers of the D7C) were simply called D7L.

Fast Forward players started asking for information on Refits. Is it a D6 (Original Pre 4 Power War) or D6B (Shield Refit against Hellbores) or a D6K (Phasers Refit)? So we started going back an update some of the ships.
