Star Trek FIRST LOOK: Scorpion 4 Attack Squadron for Attack Wing

Exciting news from StarTrek.com as they reveal an exclusive First Look at the Scorpion 4 Attack Squadron for Star Trek: Attack Wing Wave 20, out this month.

The Scorpion class vessels were small attack fighters stored aboard the Reman warbird Scimitar in 2379.

When Captain Jean-Luc Picard was captured and taken aboard the Scimitar by Praetor Shinzon, the Captain and Data used a Scorpion class fighter to escape, taking the fighter through the Scimitar‘s corridors when the shuttlebay doors were sealed to prevent them making a more direct exit. Although he initially found the craft difficult to maneuver, he eventually managed to drive the vessel through a window located in Shinzon’s representative chamber and escape into space, where the craft was beamed aboard the USS Enterprise-E.

The Scimitar’s shuttlebay, where the Scorpion-class vessels were stored, was later destroyed when the Enterprise and the Scimitar collided.

Finally the fighters I’ve been waiting for as a Romulan fan and player.  I’ll certainly be grabbing 3 sets.  Whilst they are a little lack-lustre play wise I cant help but want them both to play with and as a collector.  It is a shame that the Cloak Action isn’t native and to get a set of fighters that have both Cloak and Sensor Echo you need to spend more points than buying a D’Deridex or Valdore class ship.  However I’ve waited 20 Waves for these ships and even, at one point, almost bought Shapeways versions to tide me over.  Tonight I’m a happy Romulan!
