“Matt! We’re stronger with you than without you!”

So I check online to see if there’s a Doomsday Machine for Star Trek Attack Wing.

Apparently there was an Organized Play event featuring the Doomsday Machine last year.

The Planet Killer token
I’m gonna ram this thing right down it’s throat!

The prize was the planet killer token and cards/tokens for Commodore Decker and the Constellation, so you can recreate the episode or scenario.

And, thanks to eBay, the prize is on it’s way to me.  Yay!

Attack Wing: Ship #1

While I was running errands today, I stopped by Gator Games and found one ship that I couldn’t find online:

There are no hull markings, so I could claim that it’s actually the Excalibur.
While removing it from the packaging, the left nacelle snapped off!
Clean break, nothing at a little Gorilla Glue can’t handle
Good as new
Honestly, I’m not impressed with the quality of this piece

The ship cards. There’s a generic ‘Federation Starship’ card, along with a ‘Federation’ captain card, with a picture of Admiral Morrow

Star Trek Attack Wing

After an enjoyable evening of playing 4 games of X-Wing Miniatures at Nelson’s house, I decide to bite the bullet and order a copy of Star Trek Attack Wing.

The starter set comes withe the three starship miniatures shown, from Star Trek: The Next Generation.  I myself am a bigger fan of the Original Series, so of course I went and ordered a few TOS ships.

My one beef with this game is the size of the original Enterprise miniature, and the price they charge for it ($14.99 retail).  After looking at the number of other items (cards, tokens, etc.) that come with it, and after using reward points that game me a $10 coupon at an online store, I figured that it was worth getting for $1.97 (originally $11.97).  Heh.

Edit: behold!

You’re paying for more than just a miniature, that’s a lot of game material for this ship.

I browsed the available Klingon ships and came across this one, the ship that attacked V’Ger in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

And then there’s this ship, the Romulan vessel that attacked the outposts along the Neutral Zone, until it was stopped by the Enterprise in “Balance of Terror”.

The Klingon and Romulan ship miniatures are much bigger than the Enterprise miniature, which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but whatever, I’m getting my TOS fix with those three.
