The U.S.S Valiant, a Defiant-Class ship is heading to the Alpha Quadrant – and a tabletop near YOU!
Here’s what we know so far…
The U.S.S. Valiant NCC-74210 is a Defiant-class starship that was originally assigned as a training ship for elite cadet corps. Captain Ramirez was given command of the U.S.S. Valiant in order to train “Red Squad” during a three-month mission where the crew was expected to take control of the Valiant while being observed by senior officers. The U.S.S. Valiant soon found itself trapped behind enemy lines when the Cardassians took over the Kepla sector during the Dominion War. Attempting to return to Federation space, the Valiant encountered a Cardassian Battle Cruiser near El-Gatark. Within minutes all senior officers, including the Captain, were either killed or critically injured. The U.S.S. Valiant lost power and remained adrift while the cadets worked to get the weapons and engines back online. Under the command of Tim Watters, the Valiant and its crew were able to destroy the Cardassian Ship and return to the Federation.
The U.S.S. Valiant has one additional shield compared to the generic version of the ship and gains two Crew Upgrade slots while losing a Weapon Upgrade slot. The special ability for the U.S.S. Valiant allows you to gain one additional attack die when attacking with Photon Torpedoes, if you discard that card during the Roll Attack Dice step. The Captain in this pack is Tim Watters, this card adds one Crew Upgrade slot to your upgrade bar. Also, as an action, you may remove all Disabled Upgrade Tokens from all of your Crew Upgrades. Red Squad is an Elite Talent that allows you to start the game with a number of tokens (Evade, Scan or Battle Stations) on this card equal to the number of Federation Crew Upgrades assigned to your ship (max 4). During the Activation Phase, before performing your Action, you may remove 1 token from this card and place it beside your ship. Desperate times call for desperate measures and here we can see that Captain Tim Watters makes sure the cadets of Red Squad operate at maximum efficiency, while the Elite Talent grants you bonuses for each Federation crew member.
