Undertake the Rebel Attack Mission
NECA/WizKids will release Star Trek: Attack Wing Wave 14 in May—and StarTrek.com has exclusive First Looks at the upcoming trio of ships, which we’ll again showcase in a series of three articles. Today we will look at the Mirror Universe I.S.S. Avenger. This Terran NX Class ship receives an attack bonus while it has an Auxiliary Power Token beside it, which will be very easy to accomplish as we look through many of the upgrades. One way to achieve this is by using Black as your Captain or Admiral to perform a Sensor Echo action, thereby receiving an aux power token. Soval negates the faction penalty when deploying upgrades to your ship when he is captaining. Finally, Gardner can be used as an Admiral or Captain to increase an attack roll at the expense of a defensive die when defending the same round. Both Black and Soval can bring the Sabotage Elite Talent to the table, which can help bring about the killing blow to an opponent’s ship.The Terran Empire has “enlisted” several alien races to serve aboard the I.S.S. Avenger. The Orion Tactical Officer can be discarded to play the Weapons Malfunction or Munitions Failure cards instead of a random card when a player scores a critical hit against an opponent’s hull. After a successful attack, the Andorian Helmsman may be discarded to immediately perform a 1 or 2 maneuver (straight or bank), thereby keeping the ship out of the firing arc of opposing ships. Photonic Torpedoes and Plasma Cannons can be used to enhance the firepower of the ship as well as gain a greater field of fire—as both can be fired from the forward or rear firing arcs. Emergency Bulkheads can be disabled to flip all critical damage cards face down as well as adding a defensive die each time the ship defends that round. Enhanced Hull Plating adds additional Evasive Maneuver results to your defense at the cost of adding Auxiliary Power Tokens beside the ship.Players will have to make some tough decisions when equipping the I.S.S Avenger as they undertake the Rebel Attack mission. With 6 different outcomes possible, players can replay the mission numerous times to see who can be the first player to score a decisive victory!
