WizKids previews U.S.S. Excelsior for Star Trek Attack Wing

WizKids has posted up another preview from the next wave for Star Trek Attack Wing with a look at the U.S.S. Excelsior.
Oh my!


From the preview:

Welcome back, Attack wing fans to the final look at the ships for Star Trek Attack Wing’s Wave 2 release. Like our last round of previews, we will be looking at a starship featured prominently in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country: The U.S.S Excelsior. At 26 points, the U.S.S Excelsior is going to be a very capable addition to Federation fleets. With 5 Hull and 4 Shields, it is well poised to take a hit and still be extremely effective in combat. Its offensive capabilities (with its great 180 degree forward firing arc) will be greatly enhanced by the ability to perform a Scan action as free action as long as there are no enemy ships within range 1. Adding to its ability to stay in a fight is Captain Hikaru Sulu who allows you to shake an opponent’s target lock at the cost of disabling a crew upgrade. Styles also is a great Captain option as he allows you to add an additional Tech slot to his ship. With many Federation ships missing the ability to use Tech upgrades, he’s sure to see a lot of play outside of this expansion since the named and generic version of the Excelsior Class already have a Tech upgrade slot.
