Destroy the Scimitar
A friendly game - the co-operative mission that comes with the Valdore - Destroy the Scimitar!
Three players, each allowed 50 points each take on a high powered, exceptionally sneaky version of the Scimitar in a recreation of the Battle of the Bassen Rift.
Stats for the Scimitar are as follows:
Captain Skill: 10
Defence: 2 (permanent cloak +4 dice until shields are gone)
It randomly moves at speed 3 each turn and gains a free battlestations action each turn.
The players used the following ships:
Romulan player: IRW Valdore
Federation player 1: USS Prometheus
Federation player 2 (me): USS Venture
My full build:
U.S.S. Venture 
- Jean-Luc Picard 9 (Captain) 
- Shanthi (Admiral) 
- High-Capacity Deflector Shield Grid 
- Additional Phaser Arrays 
- Geordi La Forge 
Ship Total: 50 SP
Fleet Total: 50 SP
Setup and turn 1:
In return the Scimitar (being an equal amount of distance from both ships I choose who it fired at), attacked the Venture, I negated 2 damage with the High-Capacity Deflector Shield Grid and took the rest on the shields.
The Prometheus attacked the Scimitar again doing a small amount of damage.
The Prometheus and Valdore both attacked wiping off a few more shields from the Scimitar.
The Valdore hammers the Scimitar in return, leaving it on a few hull points.
All in all a very entertaining game, the co-operative nature made for a nice change of pace from the OP bloodshed that had occured earlier in the day.
