Dechipher Startrek Question about space combat
« on: November 07, 2012, 06:28:22 AM »
Hi Guys and Ladies

I am new to the forum ... sorry if this isnt in the right spot.

 i need some help .. was wondering if you all could help me   ... i am just learning the decipher trek starship combat rules .. and i am wondering  when you go to do damage  the defiant has 4 phase cannons right? .. do all four cannons do damage?..like the pen value times four?  i am not exactly sure how the combat and damage works ... and does the same apply to how many torpedoes you shoot at one target?

Korga, in starship combat, the penetration value is what causes "damage." Each "individual" weapon adds to a ship's offensive value for its type (beam or missile); the sum of the offensive values are compared on a chart to determine penetration. Since penetration already accounts for the number of weapons on the ship, you only apply the penetration value once per attack.

Look at the climax of episode 1.1 to see how starship combat works.

Here's a link to our first episode, to which Davy is referring.

If you haven't already, you might want to go to the trek-rpg forums, where you'll find a bunch of people who can also help you out.

For a lot of different resources for the game, you could do worse than to go and visit Beyond the Final Frontier; the link can be found in my signature.
