Greetings HeroClix Fans!
For today’s Star Trek HeroClix: Tactics II preview, we spotlight a ship from one of Earth’s oldest interstellar allies within the United Federation of Planets. We are pleased to present the Vulcan ship Ti’Mur!
The Ti’Mur is primarily used as a geological research vessel. However, the Vulcan crew of the Ti’Mur has become adept at using the ship’s equipment for battle so it begins its dial with Running Shot in its speed stat slot as it drops out of warp and fires upon an opponent from up to eight squares away. The Ti’Mur can also target two characters with its ranged attacks. Pulse Wave occupies the first three clicks of the attack stat slot as the Ti’Mur’s drilling phasers are reconfigured for offensive use. Pulse Wave is followed by three clicks of Telekinesis as the Ti’Mur’s tractor beam arrays hurl objects or ships where needed.
Defensively, the Ti’Mur begins its dial with a click of Energy Shield/Deflection as its micrometeorite deflectors make it difficult to hit with ranged attacks. Once the Ti’Mur is off its top click, it drops Energy Shield/Deflection and gains a special power called Strategic Environmental Manipulation. This power allows the Ti’Mur to use Barrier. When it does, the blocking terrain markers placed do not need to be adjacent and all must be within line of fire. Strategic Environmental Manipulation remains on the Ti’Mur’s dial for four clicks.
The Ti’Mur begins its damage stat slot with Support as the ship’s field engineers perform repairs. Support also appears on the ship’s last two clicks. Sandwiched between those clicks of Support are three clicks of Outwit, which logically represents the Vulcan crew’s preparedness.
The Ti’Mur comes in at 100 points and has the Federation team ability. It also has the Federation, Scientist, and Vulcan keywords to help focus team building. The Ti’Mur makes a great addition to Federation forces with its opening-click combo of Running Shot and Pulse Wave and its mid-dial possession of Outwit. (Those Vulcans are always thinking ahead!)
