That Decoyed condition seems pretty fun to play around with. Two ships feeding extra evade results sounds interesting. Now what on earth do they cost? 🤔

I'd guess somewhere between 5-8 to start. Most likely scaled with initative value as well. The real question is will the "decoyed" condition card be able to be used more than once in a list, if it can be than this ability might be better than Biggs.

I'd say no: the "decoyed" condition card has a single dot before the name, and is thus unique.

Fascinating stuff to be honest. They really want me to buy into The Republic. They reeeeaaally do.

'Cause **** near ain't nothin' coming out for The Resistance... What, we've got five ships once the transport comes out? But by wave 5 The Republic will effectively have... Six? Don't tell me the Delta-7 and the Delta-7B are the same ship. Those stat changes change everything about how you fly it and how much it costs to a... kind of insane degree actually. I mean, 11 points for a better dial, the ability to boost and keep 3 firepower, have a force token, one of the shortest Sloops in the game, and turn tighter than a Red Squadron Veteran at I3? Just 11 extra points for almost twice the performance.

Compare that to a naked Jedi Knight. It's a different ship.

Transport's gonna' be interesting though. Way I'm looking at it, may not end up running the full thing. No firepower's lost, but the cannon slot definitely will be. But maybe, just maybe, my X-Wings want that Cannon slot instead. Maybe that'll make them viable for me to use.

If 7b is a different ship, you have to count the shuttle and it’s stand-alone cockpit as two ships as well.  That will leave Resistance with six ships as well.

 

The real loser here is the First Order, stuck at four if I’m not forgetting anything.

I also think I filled in the blanks for the i1 double pip unique Baktoid Prototype.

While you perform a special weapons attack if a friendly ship with the networked calculations ship ability is at range 0-1 of the defender, you may ignore the calculate or lock requirement of the special weapon.

Indeed. The protection is better than biggs, but it can be applied to only one ship. 

The Naboo Handmaidens (2 dot I1 pilots, based on the name on the condition) assign the condition at setup as well. Once their charge is gone, they can't assist another ship the same way. Seems like a pretty flavorful design. Restricting their help to a single ship should hopefully keep them from being too annoying as well.

*focus, calculate, or TL.

 

There are Barrage Rockets in the spread, and a comma after calculate, indicating it's second in a list.

indeed. They're great if you have a specific ship - ideally another N-1 - that justifies the investment to protect. 

Which, since anakin is going to be spinning-is-a-good-trick (so it'll be hard to stay in the attacker's arc), probably means Ric or Padme. Padme and Handmaidens is clearly the obvious narrative choice.

I did not expect a Padme pilot for the N-1; looks like her ability is centred around messing with hostile eyeball results if she has them in her arc (unknown if bullseye or normal firing arc).

She flies one in a Forces of Destiny episode called Starfighter Stunt (along with Ahsoka, who's teaching her at Anakin's request), and actually takes down a couple of vultures that jump them unexpectedly.

If her ability can reduce the effectiveness of incoming fire, plus Full Throttle, plus Decoyed, she's going to be nigh on invulnerable until her wingmen go down.

Of course, she's still only a primary 2 N-1, with initiative 4, so actually doing enough damage to justify that is going to take some doing (torpedoes are pretty much an automatic choice, I suspect.

She also flies one at the beginning of ATOC. I had expected her to be added as a pilot for the ship, if the Rebels for whatever reason ever get the ship then I can only hope that Leia will likewise finally be added as a pilot.

This is my assumption as well. Limits Barrage rockets to 2 in a list, effectively, but it's a cool way to allow it.

If that's the Barrage work-around, the Tac Relay could be virtually anything! I'm also curious as to the difference in Hyena struts (I'm guessing only on Asteroids, since they're chunkier and would have a harder time on tiny pieces of debris), and we're waiting to find out what exactly that EMP does.

...It would tend to make sense that it's best against droids, but releasing it in the Hyena doesn't make a ton of sense, that way, and would make it fairly unbalanced and it would only get brought in CIS-heavy metas...

I mean, Fly vs Fight is always a different calls...  But she flies the N1 into Coruscant at the start of Ep2...  One could easily assume she'd actually been flying escort the whole time to maintain that cover.

I'm only interested in the Hyena Bomber.  I've not memorized all the cards.  There are also some new tokens, as well.

-Barrage Rockets included.

-Is that a new Missile in the back?

-What else comes with it?

-I can't guess as to what the powers are of the various pilots.

I believe its also in the Republic Y Wing pack. So perhaps it's a case of one for you, one for me.

My assumption is that it's basically Ion Bomb 2.0.

I agree. I believe if all the above ends up being correct, (Pilot talent)/Full Throttle she will be the New Republic(s) Biggs Darklighter. Padme in the N-1, Anakin in the Delta will be a very common nucleus for lists I believe.

Not necessarily. A Handmaid can provide evades for a buddy. We don't know if padme's pilot ability lets her protect anyone except herself, unless someone has a better read of the pilot text.

Which is 50% more ships than the First Order have...

Yeah, I'm really regretting buying the FO kit now. I thought we were going to get new FO ships in both Wave IV and V. Instead we just get nothing for what's probably going to be almost a year, unless they manage to have the new The Last Jedi 2 ships out by Christmas. 

Like... not even the new red interceptor? They brought it to lego already, but not even a suggestion of it coming to X-Wing yet...

New poster for resistance has the First Order bomber on it, plus the new interceptor SF silencer thing, and Vonreg's red interceptor. I'm hopeful for First Order love in Wave 6.

Oh cool. Looks like one of the ship tokens for the Resistance Transport Pod is listing BB-8 as the pilot at I3. Between this, and the Republic Y-wing, it seems we're gonna have the possibility of seeing more Astromech pilots. I wonder if they'll ever do a Rebel Y flown by C1-10P. Chopper might not like those ships, but he did fly one in Rebels at least once that I can remember. Just thinking out loud.

As someone that’s keen on playing FO, I am a little miffed that we won’t get a single new ship in the first year of the game’s life. I’ll have to deal with it, I guess, as I try to figure out storage space for all the new faction ships I’ll buy instead?

Next year you will likely see stuff. FO suffered from not lots of stuff to pull from. After 9 and this season or Resistance they get a good few options to add. They have the Tie Silencer Mk 2 effectively, the Tie Echelon shuttle, Xi Shuttle, Tie/fo Interceptor, Tie/fo Bomber, and what I call the TIE Dorito.
