Battlestar Galactica 22 - Craig's Not Here, Man


#175

Why I’ll do what any great leader would do in a situation like this, delegate! Save us CAG! (XO on @rowe33)


#176

Sheesh, this is quite a mess but I’m sure we can get through it. This is my current plan - anyone object or have a better idea?

Tentative plan -> CAG the viper in 4 to attack the heavy and hope we get lucky, then I could go to town on the 3 raiders and maybe even the basestar with some more luck.


#177

Maybe CAG the viper to your space then move and go after the heavy yourself.

If I can get an XO before it docks I should be able to get it otherwise.


#178

I have a pretty good plan but I can’t share it. You know how it is.


#179

I could get a few shots in total at the heavy with the viper while also taking out sector 5 but it would add to the card sacrifice. I think plastering the 3 raiders & hopefully getting a shot at the basestar would be worth it so I think it makes sense to stay in 5.


#180

If you use the CAG ability, you’ll still have 2 actions, don’t forget that bit.


#181

I think we should escort some civvies home first.


#182

What about getting 1 civvy home, then lighting shit up?


#183

Might have been a good plan to XO me instead, just to get the civvies all grouped up and defensible.

As things stand, assuming you have a Maximum Firepower I’d say you should take a pot shot at the heavy using the CAG action then shoot up some raiders. Maybe leave one alive just so more don’t spawn on a standard raider activation.

It’s not the end of the world if the heavy lands, we still have plenty of time to kill it, possibly by presidential power.

Huh?


#184

Rowe gets 2 Actions from the XO.

Using the CAG card is an Action, activate an unmanned Viper and then take another Action.

So he would still have 2, that’s all I meant.

Essentially if he activates the unmanned Viper he can do 3 things.


#185

D’oh, I forgot the XO.


#186

Just to clarify, a civvy doesn’t have to be in a launch space in order to be safely escorted, correct?


#187

Nope, just need a viper present.


#188

Ok good, in that case, let’s go with this:

CAG action to have the viper in 4 take a shot at the heavy. Should be safe enough until it can be escorted in, using my raptor as a shield, and I’d rather not have it land on an activation.

Action 1 - Play Piloting 4 (MF) to blast the raiders, then the basestar in 5. Action 2 may depend on how 1 turns out so I’ll wait for the die rolls.

#189

Huh? Okay. Just a minute, please.


#190

Unnamed Viper Pilot Who Doesn’t Rate A Number’s Potshot at the Heavy:

Roll: Well, 7, so maybe we should give him a name, even. Heavy Raider destroyed.

Athena opens up on the Cylons in her space:

Roll: 4 = -1 Raider
Roll: 4 = -1 Raider
Roll: 5 = -1 Raider

We’re all out of Raiders, so the potshot at the Basestar:

Roll: 7

Which hits because you’re in an Assault Raptor:

Basestar in space 5 has it’s Hangar damaged. No Raiders will it poop out for now.

What’s your 2nd action?

@rowe33


#191

Damn, nice shooting if I do say so myself!

For action 2, escort that poor civvy home. No need to leave him stranded out here with the basestars.


#192

Okay civvie is gone home to wherever civvies go.

I must stress that this one is important to pass, kids. Well, unless you like most of your ships broken.

Starts with @soondifferent unless someone has shenanigans.


#193

I can do some heavy lifting on this but not solo


#194

Well you have 3 undamaged Vipers in the hangar, 2 in space, and if you choose to damage the Assault Raptor, it’s gone forever, so be careful, eh.
