U.S.S. Enterprise-B Previewed For Star Trek Attack Wing

The U.S.S. Enterprise has this nasty habit of being blown up or otherwise destroyed. However, the Federation keeps on building new ones. They weren’t ever entirely identical to one-another, though they did keep roughly the same shape. And each one had different crew. So while they might all have the same name, they were rather different ships. The Enterprise-B is going to be headed to your tabletops in the next wave of Star Trek Attack Wing releases, and it’s that ship we get a look at today.

Voyager Preview For Star Trek Attack Wing

There are many iconic ships in the Star Trek universe. While most of us know of the Enterprise (or, at least, one variant or so of the Enterprise, depending on how many different series/movies you’ve watched), there’s also the U.S.S. Voyager. There’s one version of the ship already available, but with all the changes that happened during the run of the show, a single version of the ship is hardly sufficient. So they’re coming out with another.

WizKids Previews Weapon Zero for Star Trek Attack Wing

Due to the scale difference between how the X-Wing Miniatures Game and Star Trek Attack Wing are made, the X-Wing game has gotten several really big figures added to it. But, obviously, the Star Wars universe has ships much bigger than the fighters that are standard in the game, whereas Star Trek doesn’t have things that are, to scale, that are that much bigger than, say, the Enterprise. But that’s not to say that really huge ships don’t exist in that universe. One such is the Weapon Zero, the first of the new Premium Figures that will be coming out for the game.

New Preview Posted for Star Trek Attack Wing

Ok, sure, Star Wars is getting all the attention right now. But that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about Star Trek.

In fact, those of you that play the Star Trek Attack Wing game have a new “trailer” of sorts, where you get a look at a new ship coming out for Wave 21.

New Star Trek Attack Wing Preview: Kyana Prime

Star Trek.com posted up a new preview for the upcoming wave of Star Trek Attack Wing release from WizKids. Along with the new ship, of course there are new upgrade cards to be had as well. This one gets you some pretty nasty new weapons, including a once-per-game shot that rolls 8 dice for attack and ignores shields. There’s also a set of torpedoes that rolls 5 attack dice. Ba-da-boom, indeed.
I do wish they used larger images for their card previews, though.

FIRST LOOK: Attack Wing Wave 11 Romulan Prototype 01

WizKids gives us another preview (through StarTrek.com) of another Wave 11 release for Star Trek Attack wing. This time it’s the Romulan Prototype 01. And I’ll be honest, I’m surprised that my spellchecker is telling me that “Romulan” isn’t a word. Anyway, the Prototype 01 looks to be a pretty versatile ship. It can repair 1 shield or hull each round, which is pretty nice. Your opponent will want to try and take it out all at once in order to not have wasted a shot here and a shot there at it. And as always, the pack comes with bunches of upgrade cards, including two captains (though only 1 can actually be used on the 01) and one that lets you blow up your own ship to deal damage to others nearby.

StarTrek.com has our final First Look at NECA/WizKids’ upcoming Star Trek: Attack Wing’s Wave 9 releases, and today we preview the Mirror Universe I.S.S. Defiant, out in November. The I.S.S. Defiant packs the firepower players would expect from a Defiant class ship and its special power will allow it to avoid damage at the cost of an Auxiliary Power token. When damage does occur to the ship, Miles O’Brien will be a welcome Captain as he can repair 1 damage to Shields or Hull. Benjamin Sisko is the captain of choice for the more offensive-minded player with his ability to increase attack dice with the expenditure of Upgrades from the ship.
