Duel

Today, me and my number one son had 45 minutes to kill whist the heavens opened with a torrent of rain. So we played a quick game of Star Trek Attack Wing.

Being the senior officer present I chose to run my two USS Enterprise ships against an Cardassian/Romulan fleet.

The original Enterprise had James T Kirk in command, whilst the Enterprise D was under command of Jean Luc Picard.

Her Captain - was Jean Luc Picard

They faced a powerful alliance of strange bedfellows - a Cardassian Galor class vessel, and a Romulan Warbird.

The ships started on the opposite side of the table, and it was soon clear my son was going to mass his fire power against a single target - a good move. The Original Enterprise was that target.

It wasn't long before the TOS Enterprise and Galor were exchanging fire. Scotty had drained the shields to give extra power to the phasers but the Galor evaded the shots.

Meanwhile the Romulan Warbird and TNG Enterprise exchanged shots

TOS Enterprise suffered some serious damage to her shields and ran for cover, whilst Picard manoeuvred to put himself between the enemy and damaged TOS Enterprise.

The Romuland bird is a good ship, until you get behind her, then she is a bit of a sitting target, unlike the TNG Enterprise - who can fire in a 360 degree arc - in the background, TOS Enterprise has, with the help of Scotty repaired her shields, turn to join the battle.

The Warbird, shields down and with heavy damage - explodes.

These two exchanged inconsequential fire at each other - before the Cardassians warped from the battle.

A quick hit 45 minute fun battle.

  1. The original Enterprise looks tiny compared the TNG one. If I was a betting man my money would have been on the Federation!
