The game would be played on the same GaleForce9 gaming mat by girls got me for X-mas.  Instead of the asteroids of Star Wars X-Wing we fielded three planetary tokens and deployed our fleets in “opposite” corners.

Early rounds both Mirror Universe ships cloaked and headed for the centre of the map.  The Federation split their ships with Janeways Voyager and Siskos Defiant arcing round one planet to hit the MU fleet in the flank and the Enterprise of Picard going the other way to meet them head on.  The Dominion also split its forces with Gul Dukat heading to face Picard and the Mirror Universe fleet in the centre as Sar and Gul Danars Keldons took a wide route to engage the other Federation ships and the rear arcs of the Mirror Universe ships.

Some early firing from the mid skill captains stripped the shields from both Dukats and Sars ships.  Sars crewman Seskal would now be effective as Sars Keldon unleashed an 8 dice primary attack into the rear of the MU Enteprise leaving it limping towards Picard and Dukat.  It wouldnt survive another round.

Firing from both Picard and Dukat finished off the Mirror Universe Enterprise before both ships turned their attentions to one another.

Picard chose to fire upon Dukat damaging the hull of his ship before Dukat returned fire and stripped the shields from the Federation vessel.  Janeway and Sisko jousted with Sar and Damar and both sides trading shields and hull points in a tense and tight battle.  Having previously Target Locked Dukat’s Cardassian vessel Smiley O’Briens ISS Defiant fired its payload of Quantum Torpedos into the side of Dukats vessel destroying it.

Once the smoke and debris had cleared O’Brien had escaped and began to repair shields and hull ready to return into the fray.  The Keldons of Sar and Danar had passed the Voyager and Siskos Defiant.  Janeway had norrowly avoided crashing into a planet and began the slow arc round to meet the Cardassians as she passed through the planets.  Sisko took a detour to engage elsewhere in the map.

Janeway eventually faced off against the twin Keldons on Sar and Danar.  Firing first she took the shields down for one of the vessels before the combined firepower of both Keldons tore her ships to pieces.  Picard rejoined the battle hitting the Keldons in their left flank as he engaged from between the two planets.  With initiative and superior poistioning Picards firing destroyed Sars vessel.  In response Danar fired upon the Enterprise and destroyed it.

Now the only ships left were Danars Keldon, Siskos Defiant and O’Briens Mirror Defiant.

The faster Keldon was able to traverse the map quicker and re-engage as O’Briens Defiant got caught in the arc of the ship.  Some deft maneuvering by O’Brien jinked his ship into the rear arc of the Dominion ship with its Dorsal Weapons disabled.  Before O’Brien could fire Sisko moved into arc behind the Mirror Universe Defiant and fired from close.  With no evasive response to Siskos firing the ISS Defiant went down in an explosion of anti-matter.  Before it was done in one last act of rebellion Tactical Officer Tasha Yar fired upon Danars vessel cripping the Keldon and leaving it easy prey for Sisko to finish it off.

The Keldon of Danar engaged its warp and attempted to outrun the Federations vessel but an excellent display of long range shooting saw the Cardassian ship destroyed.

Victory for Tris’ Federation fleet.

Another great game at the Mancave.
