A couple of games of Star Trek Attack Wing were played last night. The Federation faced off against the Klingon Empire, whilst a Cardassian fleet tried to shake off the yoke of Dominion control.
The Feceration fleet manoeuvres toward the Klingon aggressors who had invaded this sector.
The Klingon squadron cloaked immediately and attacked.
The two fleets approached and soon phasers were hitting targets. The Klingons found themselves facing four starships to their three Birds of Prey. 100 points for each fleet. I went for generic attack points, quantity over quality, and the first exchange of salvos seemed to vindicate that decision.
There was some close manoeuvring.
The one thing I learned was that my two light ships, a Nova class and a Miranda class could be more than a match for Klingon manoeuvrability.
Federation ships turn to pursue the Klingons. The Galaxy class makes a slow swing to starboard.
Despite the victory against the Miranda class ship, the Klingons were in a bad way themselves.
They lost all three ships in quick succession. An excellent victory by the Federation fleet, tinged with sorrow at Leets loss.
It was agreed that the initial errors by the Klingon senior captain had been instrumental in the resounding defeat.
Cardassian v Dominion
We were a little pushed for time during this battle.
The Dominion boasted some powerful units, which included weapons that cut through shields as though they were not there.....
The battle was frantic, with the fighters weaving in and out of the Dominion fleet. A Cardassian Galor class starship was destroyed before we had to call it an evening. The Dominion flagship was also heavily damaged.
However, the renegade Cardassian fleet failed in its mission.
A great evening of Star Trek combat
