Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome back as we boldly go where no one has gone before with another preview from the upcoming Star Trek HeroClix: Tactics II. Today we preview the flagship of the “next generation” of the Federation, the U.S.S. Enterprise-D!
U.S.S. Enterprise-D begins the game taking the fight to your opponent with Running Shot. Penetrating/ Psychic Blast will make sure your range combat attacks damage will stick. U.S.S. Enterprise-D is protected from counter attack by Invulnerability. U.S.S. Enterprise-D has the ability to add an extra action to your action pool with Leadership.
On its second click, U.S.S. Enterprise-D has a few clicks of Perplex added to its dial. On this click, it also gains a special power called Saucer Separation. This power says “U.S.S. Enterprise-D can use Hypersonic Speed; when it does, before it moves, place a bystander token as described on this card in an adjacent square. Remove the bystander token at the beginning of your next turn. If the bystander is destroyed, deal U.S.S. Enterprise-D 1 unavoidable damage.” The Saucer Section possesses Running Shot with a 6 range, and Toughness to give it a bit of damage reduction.
Mid-dial, U.S.S. Enterprise-D gains the ability to deal penetrating damage to multiple targets with Pulse Wave. Toughness provides a little bit of damage reduction through this part of the dial. On its middle two clicks, U.S.S. Enterprise-D has the ability to lock opposing vessels in place or give itself a better chance to break away with Plasticity. At the end of its dial, U.S.S. Enterprise-D regains its Saucer Separation power. This, along with its 10 range, will help get the most out of Energy Shield Deflection, making it harder to hit from range.
U.S.S. Enterprise-D possesses the uncopyable Federation team ability, allowing it to modify its defense by +1 when it is attacked by a ship with one or more action tokens on it. U.S.S. Enterprise can be included on theme teams utilizing the Federation, Scientist, and Soldier keywords. At 150 points, U.S.S. Enterprise will be half of your force, and has the silver unique ring on his dial.
