Galactic Fleet Action at Your Fingertips! Update ID

Astro Commander is back from Genghis Con with an amazing battle report that chronicles his miniature ships in action. He moderated a huge tabletop game with Confed, Kilrathi and Nephilim fleets squaring off. The latest picture below even reveals the surprise appearance of the Steltek. Everything was played according to his custom ruleset, and it sure looks like a blast! You can check out the full story behind the battle here.

Wing Commander Tabletop After Action Report. February 2011

Operation: The liberation of Kilrah. Genghis Con XXXII

Objective: Penetrate into the Kilrah system and destroy the wormhole gate structure.

Secondary objective: Investigate a Steltek installation recently deciphered from the ruins on Mars. It is believed that the Steltek knew something about this region of space might enable a wormhole to be opened and placed a monitoring station in system. It is suspected that the Steltek were aware of the Nephilim as a potential threat to the galaxy. Though why the installation didn’t appear to do anything when the first wormhole opened is unknown. Investigate for potential weapons or data. (Unrevealed objective until turn 4, must have held the objective for one turn to have attracted attention of a Steltek carrier)

It also highlights some of the good work that fans have done to preserve historic material, such as our 2008 trip to archive Origin source documents at Mythic or the assistance Wingnuts gave Raylight to develop Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance.
