Junes South Auckland Club meeting rolled around yesterday with the huge game of Star Trek Attack Wing scheduled in. Thanks to Arthur’s slight Star Trek addiction.. Yes, that’s correct, all the ships on the table are Arthurs.
Kavan joined me to take up the Borg ships against Arthur and Kevin who were running the Federation and Klingon empire. Mark turned up late and picked up running a couple of Klingon ships from Kevin fleet.
The Borg had 10 ships, including the awesome huge cube.
Meanwhile the Federation and Klingon had about 14 with a total points of 600 per side.
The first two turns were the Borg racing straight forward while the Federation and Klingon adjusted and attempted to intimated us. Then came the first shots of the game and the big Cube took a few hits to the shields. Then I managed to pull out the rug from under poor old Kevin, who had lined up one of is upgrade cards on the closet ship to cause me major problems, but Resistance if Futile and hiding behind cloaking didn't save him. First kill to the Borg
Then on the following turns everyone was getting up into it. With a few ships getting tangled but nothing else getting destroyed
The Borg ship concentrated fire on one or two ships at a time making easy work of them and assimilating a few Photo torpedo's and upgrade cards as we went.
The Borg tactical cubes started taking a pounding so we mixed it up with our flight paths and with perfect precision .. e.g. god damn fluke never ran into my own ships.
Kevin poured all his firepower into the huge Borg cube and with the final help from Mark’s lone surviving ship took it out of the game. But it wasn't enough, with only four of the Borg ships destroy we simply over powered them.
It was a great game, and lots of trash talking as you can expect. We rolled it out in about 5 hours. One of which was probably taken up by insults and then the subsequent laughter and banter. Then a few beers at the pub. Awesome day gaming.
