    Indeed. More than anything, it's going to mean that 'patrol boats' like the VT-49 have absolutely NO place in a capital ship fight, though - which is something I'm fine with.
     going "reinforce ahahahahaha your feeble light lasers do nothing against my oh dear god that's a turbolaser battery" [splat] is exactly how I feel a decimator should behave in a massive battle.

    These days, this can be easily limited with a price adjustment where they are too expensive to spam, or simply add dots to the upgrade.
    Personally, I like the mechanic of the card and would like to see it make it back into the game somehow.
    This is a pretty cool example of tightening up the language so the card always works as intended. . .
    It depends on how fast they can repair themselves.
    Huge ships are going to live or die based on successful Energy management, and like you said, dumping energy into the turbolaser every round might be a bad idea.

    Ignoring the 360 issue, massing TLTs (like 4 y-wings with it) that could consistently deal 8 damage per turn to certain ships was the first problem. 
    The best suggestion I've seen to translate TLT to 2.0 is to leave the whole card the same, but exchange the "Attack twice" part with just a double arc turret weapon.
    A 3 die, 2-3 range double arc turret that deals 1 damage if it hits.

    The C-roc comes with a Turbolaser, so chances are good.

    Also more ideal for shooting capital ships instead of snubfighters.

    Exactly! Turbo lasers shouldn't hit all that often, but when they do hit, IT HURTS!!! 😁

    The Turbolaser only has a 'Bonus Attack:' header, it doesn't have an 'Attack:' header so you can't use it in place of your primary attack like you can with most ordnance or even Snap Shot.
    Range 4 and 5 give an additional green die (just one more). So a Decimator rolss 0 at R1-2, 1 at R3, 2 at R4-5, as per the FFGLive streamed huge ship Epic game.

    It will be "both" won't it? The idea that leaps to mind in keeping with the mythology is leaving the Earth they found a nuclear waste in Moore's BSG and founding Kobol or leaving Kobol and founding the colonies. "It happened before it will happen again." That way they can be a "spinoff" since they'll have different characters and maybe no Caprica or such but a "reboot" since they can still do the stragglers on the run from an overwhelming intractable enemy.
    It will look like and have situations that make it "BSG." They can be far enough in the past that they don't have to worry about too much retcon or being beholden to too many rules from any prior BSG stories. They can take a bunch of the stuff that identify it as BSG without being tied down by anything that came before.

    I've seen some sources say it's a reboot, this article says spinoff. I hope it's more in the spinoff variety, myself.

    Looks like the name, size, and side view of the new Y-wing. As well as the T-85 which is pretty big.
    Also still no love for the new B-wing................

    That's what I'm thinking, barring deep flush brain washing. The foreshadowing is there already, and I think the trigger for he flip back is going to be her mentor openly displaying a level of brutality that goes contrary to what Tam will have assumed was within the First Order's capability. Likely racially motivated, in a similar manner to what kept happening to the Tenctonese in the old Alien Nation tv series (**** I'm dating myself with this one...).

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's no one we already know of.
    If we look at the years around this and assume it was a rough age range, there's some other interesting options. Garazeb Orrelios is 44 BBY, Gallius Rax is 42 BBY (but he should be dead), Ahsoka Tano is 36 BBY, Lor San Tekka is somewhere before 40 BBY.

    Well, the whole age thing does make me intrigued. I keep seeing that the Mandalorian was set five years after Return of the Jedi, which means that if he's being sent to find someone fifty years old (if I understand the preview right), they were born 41 years before Yavin.
    Two very interesting names fall into that bracket; Anakin Skywalker and Rae Sloane.
