The Saber-class of Federation starship was first introduced in the late 24th century, and was in full service by 2373. The ship featured a design more compact than other Starfleet vessels, and was fairly well armed despite its small size; the class has featured prominently in the Battle of Sector 001 against the Borg and in the Dominion War.
Lets take a look and see what we get in the pack.....
The named Captain of the pack is Orfil Quinteros, who is skill 5 for 3 points. His action lets you roll 3 defence dice, and for each evade repair one damage to your hull, but you also have to put an auxiliary power token on your ship for each point of damage repaired.
Subspace Transmitter is the other tech card in the pack, and is an action and a disable that puts a scan token on your ship, and a friendly ship in range 1-3, which can be useful for giving them an extra action.
Wesley Crusher makes an appearance as crew again, and for an expensive 5 points, but he does have two different ways he can be used. After you move, if your ship has a auxiliary power token by it, you can disable Wesley to perform an action from your action bar. The other way he can be used is, after you move you can disable him to perform an action from one of your tech cards. This can allow you an extra action on the turn you need it, so he is actually quite a versatile card.
Photon Torpedoes come as a weapon upgrade, we have seen these plenty of times before, and they are often useful, certainly in a ship that can change its target lock at will.
Heavy Graviton Beam is a 4 point weapon with 3 attack dice that can work at range 1-2. It is a discard
that causes the target to roll 1 less defence dice, which is not very impressive, until you read what it does against the Borg. If fired against a Borg vessel you gain 3 attack dice, and they may not roll any defence dice. Since this does not require a target lock to be used, you can use it to re-roll for maximum effect, and if you have taken that action earlier, you can just swing the target lock into place on the enemy when you need it and take battlestations as your action for maximum damage potential.
Destroy the Weapons Platform is the mission for the pack, and take sus back to the Dominion War, with a 2 player game including some fixed defences, and a timer mechanism mean you can not just sit back, but must engage if you want to win
