Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

While I’d like to say replace the B’Rell with the Wanderer, I can’t support that… I’d rather have the cloaking minelayer at normal speed than a high speed scout that will only be a real advantage in the first 20-30 turns until I run up against an enemy on each side. Since the other ships will be slo...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

One way to give them more teeth is to make their main carrier (Victory CV) lower tech with a higher capability similar to the Borg Diamond (Tech 6: 7bm/7bay/320KT/95 cargo/3 eng/410 fuel) or Dominion Jem Hadar Warship (Tech 6: 8bm/8bay/335KT/115 cargo/4 eng/390 fuel). Making the Victory lower tech l...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

Klauser, Please excuse the multiple posts… My browser is limiting how much I can enter and still reach the submit button. First I’ll address your comment about the Orions since I’m the resident Orion in AQ8… I have not built a single B’Rell in this game. The only ones I have in my Order of Battle we...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

I’m seeing trends of: 1) Give the Maquis a carrier capital ship that can stand up in a fight (e.g. improve the Victory hull) 2) Give the Maquis a more viable cloaker, possibly even the Romulan Aerie carrier which will leverage their fighter building and minesweeping advantage 3) Give the Maquis an o...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

A couple of corrections are due at this point:
1) In AQ8, the Maquis are not the only race capable of building fighters in space.
2) I misspoke on the capabilities of the Jem Hadar War Cruiser... It is a 6 beam/6 tube cruiser (got it confused with the Jem Hadar Warship).

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

4) dark monkey: I wouldn´t like a race that depends on a good ally and can only sweep mines but has no ship to attack with. But if thats wanted by some players I expect them to choose the Maquis next time 5) Logain: Perhaps they should steal the plans to the Jem Hadar War Cruiser (SSD) which is a re...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

Recommendations submitted so far included: 1) dark monkey: Give the Maquis a carrier (a bit stronger than those of the other races) and a cloaker (maybe like Fearless Wing Cruiser) with race plus ability of the Klingons...they prefer to destroy and kill - to capture a ship is more the character of t...

Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

We got off topic on Fexer's request for a new AQ game in our discussion of the potential fixes to make the Maquis a viable race in the scenario. I have captured the discussion points so far below so we can keep beating this horse in its own thread. Specific discussion started with a comment from dar...

Re: New Alpha Quadrant?

Not sure what your are implying... :^o I sacrificed a MBR to tow one back to the Dominion HW to put him down for the count (miscalculated the MBR fuel count by 1 KT fuel #-o ). It took out the rest of the Dominion HW cluster in short order. It's currently in open space a few hundred LY south of wher...

Re: New Alpha Quadrant?

Perhaps they should steal the plans to the Jem Hadar War Cruiser (SSD) which is a reasonably heavy 8 tube/8 beam ship with the obvious offensive threat??? #-o Combine that with the ability to stealthily sweep mines and everyone will have to watch out for the random Maquis strike force. If you can me...

Re: New Alpha Quadrant?

Giving the Maquis a cloaking carrier makes for a hellacious surprise minesweeper too... :D Great for spearheading assault groups against those pesky minelaying races. #-o

Re: New Alpha Quadrant?

Who said I was allied with Raven2? I never admitted to that :^o Raven2 is my favorite enemy. Good enemies make you a better player. I first crossed swords with him in the inaugural AQ game where he single-handedly fought a three race alliance (Fed/Romulan/Maquis) to a stalemate. I had to cheat and r...
