Its an iconic ship for the series, the first Enterprise we see on screen, and its design left a lasting impression through the trek universe.
"All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by."
– James T. Kirk, 2268 ("The Ultimate Computer")The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) was a 23rd century Federation Constitution-class starship operated by Starfleet. In the course of her career, the Enterprise became the most celebrated starship of her time.
In her forty years of service and discovery, through upgrades and at least two refits, she took part in numerous first contacts, military engagements, and time-travels. She achieved her most lasting fame from the five-year mission (2265-2270) under the command of Captain James T. Kirk.
There is plenty of cards in the set, the normal and handy manoeuvre card, a nicely nimble ship for the federation anyway. Generic captain as always, then the named ones. Captain Pike is handy as he makes crew a point cheaper and the Enterprise version has 4 crew. And of course Kirk himself, at captain skill 9 he is up with picard, and he can take 2 elite talents face down until they are used which makes for some handy Kirk style sneakiness, with your opponent not knowing whats coming next.and they are 3 points each for any choice. There are 3 elite talents Cheat death is a nice choice, allows the ship to come back after being blown up, and the Cochran manoeuvre can cause a big surprise! The named ships ability is excellent, you can load it up with auxiliary power, and still keep going perfroming actions from your bar.
Overall, if you have not got the Enterprise already, and its hard to find, it s a must have as it provides many many good cards to use. If you already own it, its still worth grabbing for a different coloured Constitution class for some TOS era gaming.
Its sooo small!! how are you going to win with that I will squash it, but it is CUTE!! (DAD- its NOT CUTE!!)
You can pick one up by finding your local game store here with an RRP of £12.99 it will add a great ship and excellent cards if you do not have it to your fleet, and if you do, another Constitution for TOS era gaming is always a good thing.
