Star Trek Attack wing Gor Portas Breen Battle Cruiser for the Dominion unboxing

Powering in from warp to reinforce the Dominion comes the latest addition to my fleets in the form of the Breen Battle Cruiser. A very different looking ship true....

The Federation first encountered the ships in combat during the Second Battle of Chin'toka. The Cardassian and Dominion ships held back while the Breen engaged the Federation, Klingon and Romulan forces.

The ships had been equipped with energy dissipators that disabled the Allied ships' engines, weapons, and shields. The weapon was instrumental in defeating the Allied fleet and forcing the Federation Alliance from the Chin'toka system, losing the only enemy territory that they held in Cardassian space. (DS9: "The Changing Face of Evil") Fortunately, the Klingon Bird-of-Prey IKS Ki'tang was not affected, leading to a defense being discovered. (DS9: "When It Rains...")

Even without the energy dampening weapon, the Breen warships proved to be formidable. One such ship destroyed Legate Damar's ship in orbit of Cardassia Prime. Several warships participated in the Battle of Cardassia. During this engagement, a Breen warship was able to outmaneuver the USS Defiant, displaying exemplary maneuverability. Besides the energy dissipator, Breen warships mainly attack with torpedo weapons fired from at least three forward launchers at the pikes of the ship. Several Breen warships were destroyed by the Cardassian fleet when the Cardassians joined the Allies

So whats in the pack? firstly the usual plenty of tokens,
I love organising tokens and yes you can see a new token for a new weapon system
Then the ship itself... it is a truly odd design, but I really like it it has a certain something "Alien" which is good for well an alien race ya know.
 As you can see the ship is nicely detailed, as always though a wash would finish it off.
Next the cards to go along with the ship.....
 The breen ship is tooled for loading up weapon systems and  opening huge amounts of firepower on things and using its special weapon the Energy Disapator.
 This is the rules card for it nicely included to keep things easy to see it includes the picture of the token used so you don't forget.

And lastly the mission,  not all the missions are balanced, but they all look so much fun I do not care
overall another great pack.
