The fifth in a seven part series, Blood Feud sees the Horizon face off against a rogue Klingon.
Mission 5: Blood Feud
A contact in the Klingon High Council has informed Starfleet intelligence of a rogue element in the Empire that is trying to start a war with the Federation - Kurga of House Kell. Kurga is entering Federation territory with the intent of attacking a Federation outpost. Starfleet intelligence has tasked you with hunting down Kurga and his last location placed him in the Cauldron, a dangerous region of space which Kurga knows very well.
The Cauldron, each objectve token has hidden under it either a battlestations token, a critical token, a mission token or an auxiliary token. One token is revealed at random each turn and any Federation ship within range 3 suffers the following effects:
Critical token = Federation ships within ranges 1-3 take one unavoidable damage. Remove the objective token.
Auxiliary token = Federation ships within ranges 1-3 receive an auxiliary token. Remove the objective token.
Mission token = Federation ships within ranges 1-3 must disable a crewmember. Remove the objective token.
Battlestations token = Federation ships within Ranges 1-3 may make an immediate move of speed 3 or less. Then remove any auxiliary tokens from the ship. Remove the objective token.
The setup is as below:
In addition to raising the Captain Skill by +1, the Federation commander chooses another ability:
"When attacking or defending, you may re-roll one blank result".
Next time, the gloves come off...
