NECA/WizKids will release Star Trek: Attack Wing Wave 10 in December -- and StarTrek.com has exclusive First Looks at the upcoming trio of ships, which we'll again showcase in a series of three articles. Today, we will look at the Independent Vidiian Battle Cruiser: Fina Prime. Stripping an opponent’s shields without having to roll attack dice is a great tool. The Vidiian Commander can increase the effectiveness of three of the Upgrades found in the set as well as allow for the ship to make use of the Decisive Orders elite talent.
The four crew upgrades in the expansion will definitely cause great concern for an opponent. Denara Pel and Sulan can both be used to discard crew upgrades and are both further enhanced if you are grappling the target. A Vidiian Boarding Party could easily clear out the crew of an opponent’s ship as well. Finally, Dereth can be used as a deterrent if your opponent comes gunning for your own Crew.
The Vidiian Battle Cruiser can fire a Hypothermic Charge that will ignore shields and if the opposing ship has no active shields, get a reroll to increase damage output. Using the Grappler on an opponent is also a strategy one may wish to consider when playing the Deadlock mission as it will allow your Vidiian Boarding Party to be activated as a free action and hopefully win the mission before the Federation ship has a chance to escape the subspace divergence.
