Would people be interested in Babylon 5 Wars next weekend? Either actual B5 ships, or Star Trek?

Is there a PBY Catalina equivalent? (if so, is there a "night Ops" variant?

I'd say the closest you'll get in B5 to a Catalina would be an armed shuttle, or maybe a long-range fighter like Earth's Badger. (Think a Starfury with a tail gunner that can also carry missiles.) In Star Trek, I'd probably say a Runabout, which B5wars treats as a super heavy fighter.

The Patton of wargame design, the Berg himself, is being immortally quoted elsewhere.

"Rich Berg once responded to gamers comments about one of his games, "I make this s*** up, so can you.""

The greatest blame does not lie with the oppressors.  It belongs to the silent majority.

Stop, Breathe, and Go AFK for awhile, before you resort to flames (I have to remind myself of this all the time).

...I'm going to guess that you guys played Angels High last weekend...

I've got what i think is a good into game for B5Wars set up for this Sunday. Earth vs Centauri, with one or two ships per person. As for how the two factions fight, imagine a stealth-armored King Crab fighting against a stock Mad Cat, and that should give you some idea of what to expect.

Do people want me to bring some Star Trek ships as well, in case things go quickly and they want to try those out?

A&A War at Sea with lots of planes....

Having a variety of ships is always a good thing.

:snort:. I'll believe that when I see it.

As for this weekend yeah bring some Trek ships just in case. I'm looking forward to trying the system.

Speaking of Fed fighters and Runabouts, the two ships are the same size. A Fed fighter is about three times as long as a TNG era shuttle. I think both count as heavy fighters by other universes standards. Really more of a tiny spacecraft than fighter.

Like you wouldn't believe.  I had no return flight or hotel room and no money.  Luckily things worked out.  I can bring my fleets this Sunday.  After the week I'm having I could kill things.

So if everyone is there, my guess is War at Sea.  Gaming is the only thing on my calendar for this weekend.

Also, hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
