Battle Report

This game saw our first Borg Player. This was a one-off game and not part of the overall campaign. Mostly to test how the Borg would play as an actual faction and not just wandering monsters.

While initial objectives for the Ferengi focused around the acquisition of scrap Borg technology, and the Borg scoring points for Assimilating (Defeating in Melee combat); It quickly became a matter of “Run for your Lobes!” for the Ferengi.

The Borg Drones being Grunts, with Regenerate, and Soulless Traits, they very much had the feel of an unrelenting endless space-zombie horde. They played exactly how we wanted them to, completely terrifying.

Initially we were going to test the Borg against a couple of Starfleet Away Teams, but after a few trait adjustments, and rebuilds of the Borg List, I busted out the Senior Survey Team of Prak-Tarr Heavy Industries – The Quadrant’s Premier Preemptive Salvage Experts™

Because Drones come in sets of 3, each only having one wound (a normal model has 3 wounds), when the Drones regenerate, they can replenish 1 model. We placed two Borg Regeneration Chambers up against some of the Borg ship wreckage to serve as spawn points for the regenerated drones.

Overall the Borg as a faction play wonderfully, and have a lot of the flavour/feel of other swarm armies in larger games.

The Borg Adaptation trait allows one borg model to spend two actions for all Borg become immune to a model’s ranged attacks, until that model spends an action to cycle the frequencies on their disruptor/phaser/etc. This played very well in this game, it wasnt over powered, but was used as a nice annoyance feature to keep the pressure on my Ferengi.

As for the game istself, pretty early on Daimon Prak summoned The In-Laws to use as a defensive screen. Eliminator Bok and the Orion Pirate Kaela, took to the offensive, while pretty much everyone else just ran for the Shuttle.

The Borg ended up taking out the In-Laws, but the rest of the Away Team made it to the shuttle. Kaela’s Sprinter trait gave her a nice advantage to covering a lot of ground quickly, and in the last turn Eliminator Bok caught the Luck of the Draw, was able to activate first and high tail it for the shuttle.
