Star Fleet Battles
War Corvettes were invented at the end of the General War, as the final
evolution of the attrition ship.
For rules and discussion, see the ADB SFB BBS.
This page just lists the ships. I've now posted them all on the basis
that publication is unlikely, at least before some revisions.
haven't playtested them all (or any of them much) so the BPVs are
a guess. Some will be better, some worse. MSC, etc, to follow
3 prototypes were built in Y185 and trialled but not accepted by Star
Fleet for ethical, tactical and strategic reasons. They were sold
to an outlying planet where they repelled pirates in Y186 and
Andromedans in Y187. This resulted in a great deal of advertising. As a
result, more were sold to other planets Y189-193 until Star Fleet
grudgingly accepted their value.
The saucer is separable.
Plus refit Y190
The first prototype (the first War Corvette of any empire) was built in
Y182. Boom is not separable.
K refit Y187
Plasma Refit Y189
The original design plan (prototype Y184) relied on the ship using its
large battery reserves and high power output to charge the target under
ECM and tractor it for destruction by drones. As it turned out, the
corvette was too small to manage this with any reliability (and it was
an absurd undertaking against an Andromedan), yet it lacked the
long-range firepower and drone reserves for a battle at range. Both
these problems were corrected in the + refit of Y189
2 balcony positions. Shuttles not transferable. Two deck crews.
Built in a PC hull. Quite common, as the territory was so small.
Snare refit (RA)
In common with their usual fleet doctrine, the Hydrans created two
The WYN found the War Corvette concept ideal for replacing their
worn-out auxiliary cruisers and kitbashed frigates. It is not believed
that any were used in the War of Return.
Identical to the Lyran version until the phaser refit.
No refit. They wouldn't have thought of it and were killed off by the
Klingons before the opportunity arose. Two deck crews.
No refit. Jindarians don’t do refits.
If it loses a side engine, it loses Nimble status and turn mode the
other way becomes B
Refit: QWT arcs become FP
1 balcony position L
This is entirely speculative, as no rules for modernised Carnivons have
DC: hold for 1. Overload: arm 2+4, no hold.
HN: same effect, better range than EY
Death Bolts are speed 32 by this time (warhead?)
