Just for the record, the edit I made was just for clarification's sake - in the very likely event one of you don't believe you finally got some Jump Prep

If we don't think we're able to pass it with just PIL/TAC, does anyone have a Scientific Research they'd be willing to play? Maybe that would help?

Yeah, feel free to send in COs for Inv Comm or SciRes should the check be chosen, or COs for Strat Plans if Zarek takes the roll instead.

To go quickly is foolish. To go slowly is prudent. Not to go; that is wisdom.


Honestly, I was hoping to get a dice roll and a strat plan out and keep our cards. With the way the Destiny deck is stacked this is going to be a 14/15 check and Adama is out.

Unless someone Comes with a great plan, I think it's better to roll for it.

I'm not actually against this either. There are still opportunities (and time) to make up for losing 1 fuel. I'd feel more comfortable with a strat plan though.

By CO, OhHiMaahk plays TAC 4: Strategic Planning.

Roll 1d8 +2 = 5 Nothing happens!

Raiders Attack!
3 Raiders in Sector 1 move to Sector 6!
1 Raider in Sector 4 attacks an unmanned Viper - 1d8 = 5 Viper Damaged!
1 Raider in Sector 3 attacks Civilian Ship - Pop - 1!
6 Raiders in Sector 3 move to Sector 4!

Zarek deems the mission far too risky with the Cylon fleet baring down on them, and decides resources cannot be spared in scouting for fuel. He does, however, formulate a plan with the aid of President Baltar to help preserve Tylium. Together with the scientists, they come up with an ad hoc scheme to prevent Galactica from wasting much more fuel.

The massive cloud of Raiders swoops down onto the fleet in a relentless torrent. A few small civilian transports that drifted too far away from Galactica's Viper screen are shot to pieces with ruthless efficiency. One of Starbuck's wingmen is forced to crashland after covering the Admiral - the Viper survived, but the poor pilot wasn't so lucky. With the bulk of the Cylon armada now having closed the distance, can Galactica's remaining Vipers protect the unarmed civilian ships from such massive numbers?


Turn 2.5: Chief (Somberbreo) is the Current Player.

That's a valid move

Chief Tyrol and his knuckle draggers waste no time in getting Galactica's point defense systems back online. This is mainly done by hitting the guns with hammers and wrenches until they start working again. This outstanding display of blue collar labour inspires Dr Baltar, who adjusts his fine presidential suit and feels glad he's not of the working classes...

Weapons Control repaired! OhHiMaahk, Move and take an Action, or take two Actions.

Baltar activates Command and attacks Raiders in Sector 4 with an unmanned Viper!
Roll 1d8 = 5, 8, Two Raiders Destroyed!

By CO, he does it again!
Roll 1d8 = 8, 7, Two more Raiders Destroyed!

Under the orders of President Baltar, Galactica's best pilots fly head on into the swarm of Cylons. Despite being outnumbered, the humans are fighting with their backs to the wall with very little more to lose. By the time the Vipers break off, they have dealt a significant blow to the enemy vanguard.

Following the rupturing of Galactica's water supplies, the hydration situation in the fleet is worsening. If this continues, the civilian population will start suffering the effects of the siege. From his post on Galactica's CIC, Baltar gets urgent messages for help from the ship captains...Does he respond, or allow them to fend for themselves?


Crisis!

Water Shortage (A):

President Chooses:

-1 Food.

OR

The President discards 2 Skill Cards, then the Current Player discards 3 Skill Cards.

Activate Basestars, Prepare for Jump

Basestars Activate! 1d8 = 3 MISS 1d8 = 5 HIT FTL Control Damaged!

Jump Prep + 1!

Baltar swaps his suit for his labcoat and sets to work on designing a new, water filtration system to replace the outdated waste recycling on Galactica. Together with the mechanical know-how of Chief Tyrol, the President successfully installs a machine that will help preserve water supplies in the longterm.

As the jump drives of the aging Battlestar begin to finally whir into motion, one of Galactica's primary engines are struck by a salvo of missiles from a Cylon Basestar. The hefty damage to the engines means that until repairs are done, hopes for a speedy jump to safety are dashed...

We finally get some jump prep and then we lose our FTL drive. This game.

I was concerned about the late game if Vipers happen to get outright destroyed, but honestly I don't think we are very likely at all to hit another series of Attack cards like this and it is unlikely that any Vipers are destroyed.

The Basestar situation is not great, I think I should have ended my turn at Weapons Control so I could take some pot-shots if we like. I'm more worried about the good doctor or myself winding up in sickbay than anything.

If you can Scout, I think it's a better option than killing more raiders. With the hit to population and the basestars hammering Galactica, our worst case scenario are more cards without Jump Prep.

What happens if we reach automatic jump (yeah, right) with FTL damaged? Do we jump anyway?

Yeah, we jump anyway. If we deal with at least one of the Basestars now then I will be significantly less worried. I can't remember the distribution of cards that give both Basestar activations AND jump prep, but I have to think there are a few.
