FIRST LOOK: Borg Tactical Cube 138
By StarTrek.com Staff - May 16, 2014
StarTrek.com has one last First Look at NECA/WizKids' upcoming Star Trek: Attack Wing’s Wave 5 releases, and today we preview the Borg Tactical Cube 138, out in June. While Tactical Cube 138 sports a larger sized base than any ship before it, players should be aware that should the final position of its base overlap another ship, it does not lose its “Perform Action” Step if that ship has a Hull value of 6 or less. Tactical Cube 138 also has a special ability which allows it to be equipped with the Borg Ablative Hull Armor at a significant discount. Even under the heaviest of fire, the Borg Queen has few concerns, as her card ability allows her to transfer to another Borg ship in your fleet should the Borg Tactical Cube be destroyed. And for those times when you want to maintain a Target Lock after using it for its reroll ability, the Tactical Drone is your Captain of choice.
Borg ships have many ways to use the Drone Tokens provided by their captains— and the Tactical Cube 138 is no exception. Four of Twelve can be discarded along with a Drone Token to remove a token from an opposing ship while also placing a Scan token next to his ship. The Elite Talent, Assimilated Access Codes, allows the use of Drone Tokens to disable an opponent’s shields or flip a cloak token to its red side. For those afraid of permanently draining their Drone Token supply, they may want to consider adding the Borg Upgrade, Borg Alcove which allows you to add Drone tokens.
Like the Borg Sphere 4270 from the Star Trek: Attack Wing Wave 4 release, the Tactical Cube 138 comes with the amazing combo of the Borg Tractor Beam and the Cutting Beam. Additionally, we see a few new Secondary Weapon Upgrades for the Borg faction. Borg Missiles will put any enemy on the defensive as they try to figure out how to deal with destroyed shields as well as Auxiliary Power Tokens. Putting the cube on Full Assault mode will also strike fear in players’ hearts as they face 9 attack dice split between 2 to 3 of their ships. If things get bad for the Borg, they can always fall back on their last ditch effort for victory, the Self Destruct Sequence.
As you can see, with the release of the Tactical Cube 138 Expansion Pack, the Borg continue to be a threat to the Federation and all other factions. Can you successfully defeat them in the Deliver The Nano Virus mission without resorting to your Self Destruction Sequence? Will the Borg be able to locate and destroy Unimatrix Zero? Only you can prove that resistance is futile.
