Mongoose Publishing posted up some new releases for Star Fleet: A Call To Arms.

From the announcement:

Four new ships have just been released for the Star Fleet range, and Klingon players are going to have a good day with the coming of the E5 Battle Corvette, F5W War Destroyer, and F6 Frignaut, a clutch of smaller ships that will terrorise much larger enemies!

To combat this, the Federation have launched the Star Tiger Light Raiding Dreadnought, a Fast ship that packs a great deal of firepower!

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Like the minis, but am wondering why all the new “boxes” have such a bizarre mix of ships? ACTA is very much a “pick your fleet, paint it up and fight” type game than SFB/FC. Back when I used to play SFB nobody was ever that completely tied to a faction because you usually only controlled 1 or 2 ships at a time. In ACTA you control a whole fleet – so it makes sense for people to lock into one and paint up their own models. From the SFB perspective having a whole mix of ships to use in different scenarios makes sense – from an ACTA perspective it doesn’t.

    I have a fed fleet box and squad box, but no way am I touching any of these new boxes coming out. I would by a squad box with some of the newer ships (NCL, DW, NCA, NCF) that you can currently only buy as singles. Certainly not interested in yet another Battle Cruiser!

      IDK what you are getting at with all those acronyms. QFT!

        ACTA- A Call to Arms
        SFB- Starfleet Battles
        FC- Federation Commander

        NCL, DW, NCA, NCF – class designations for ships by type such as NCL = New Light Cruiser

    I’m surprised they don’t have more squadron boxes composed of just FFG, FFB, DW and maybe an OCL or NCL included. How many DNG and BCH does a guy need?

    I wish I still had players to play SFB with. I miss the good old SFB days, … I think.

    @ cama – sorry for the acronym spam. Thanks for clearing it up kalamadea!

    @ scottjm – exactly!!!

    @ Thraug – probably more fun to reminice then to actually play again 😉 I quite enjoyed ACTA for a while – gave you the SFB feel without the same pain (but still a little pain due to waiting forever for the minis and the onslaught of errata).
