The Klingon Empire is back with the minelaying Vor’cha class I.K.S. Drovana – setting a course for a tabletop near you.
Here’s what we know so far…
The I.K.S. Drovana is a Klingon Vor’cha-class ship. While secretly placing cloaked mines in a section of the Bajoran System, the Drovana was seriously damaged when one of the cloaked mines accidentally detonated. The U.S.S. Defiant towed the Drovana back to Deep Space 9 for repairs, where Worf and Kurn were able to secretly obtain the access codes needed to detonate the rest of the cloaked mines.
Those familiar with the Vor’cha Class will recognize the strong 5 Primary Weapon Value, 1 Agility, 5 Hull and 3 Shields all for 28 SP. The generic version loses one Shield and one Weapon Upgrade Slot compared to the named version. The I.K.S. Drovana has a special ability that allows you to discard 1 of your non-disabled upgrades to cancel 1 hit or critical hit result.
The I.K.S. Drovana Expansion Pack brings Gowron back into battle, this time as an Admiral in the Klingon Empire. Gowron can be played as either a Skill Level 5 Captain or as an Admiral with no Skill Bonus. Either way, Gowron allows you to add a Battle Stations Token beside your ship. If the ship and Captain are both Klingon, you may immediately perform an additional Action from your Action Bar as a free Action. The Klingon Faction has been in need of more Admirals and Gowron is a great addition by adding a valuable Battle Stations Action to his ship, with the chance to grant another free Action, if both your ship and Captain are also Klingon.
Continuing the theme of the I.K.S. Drovana, the Elite Talent in this expansion is Detonation Codes. Kurn managed to obtain the access codes that could detonate cloaked mines remotely. This card adds the long awaited mine sweeping function to Star Trek: Attack Wing. Detonation Codes allows a player to target a Minefield Token within Range 1-3 and then roll the number of attack dice listed on the mine’s Upgrade Card minus 1. All ships within Range 1 of that Minefield Token suffer damage, as normal from any hit or critical hit result. The affected ships do not roll any defense dice. The affected Minefield Token is removed after it is detonated. With the proliferation of cloaked mines, players with be happy to have a new tool to help deal with them. If played properly, you might even be able to damage your enemies in addition to destroying the minefield.
