Not going to lie I feel bad for the poor saps on this rendition of the campaigns Hancock I had much better luck against worse odds and mine is still flying 170 turns in...

I don't for see them going down anytime soon. Something about that vessel just has about the same luck as your Patrol Corvette 17

Good read as always, interesting to see the ebb and flow of power and was expecting a Euro/US domination as long as they stood together.

Given the small size of both the Nemotian populations and all the human colonies they've so far encountered, they ought to really freak out when they finally get something within sensor range of Earth and find out just how big its population is.

Sorry to leave it kind of on a cliff hanger, but there is just no way I will be able to get this month done before I leave.  I will try to get one more part of the story done before Friday, but no guarantees.

I also apologize for all the typos.  My wife hasn't been able to proofread several of them.  I will fix them up when I get back in a few weeks.

Hope you have enjoyed the story so far, and thanks for reading.

Although there are fewer turn notes, it looks like this month will take even more to write up than Feb 04  :( .  There is quite a bit to go through, and the overview at the end is going to take up a lot of space.  A lot happened this month that will have to be explained for it all to make sense.

But it did make for a fun game (for me at least, not sure if the players would all agree), and hopefully a good story.

As always, thanks for reading.

Nice write-up, as usual.  Two problems with the EU ships' use of evasive maneuvers, though:

1.  Pt ignore the first point of EM, and
2.  Cp cannot use EM anyway.

Or were those both house ruled away?

I'll give the long winded explanation in the overview (one of the reasons it will be long one), but here is the explanation in a nutshell for those who are interested.

This was the month the oldest boy brought to my attention that Plasma Torpedoes don't do x3 dmg vs no drive field  :|

Our previous games had only one minor race that used PT, and my inexperience with PT's, and the Ultra rules, kind of got us into a bit of a bind on this one  :? .  We house ruled it away because the players were fairly proud of what they had accomplished, and didn't want to start over (well, the oldest girl may have, but she didn't push the subject.  Her little project she was working on had her fairly excited.)

This was our test game for the Ultra rules and a number of systems (Cp, Pt, others to be divulged later...), so we made our share of mistakes and tweeked things as we went to suit ourselves.

With many apologies for our waltzing all over the rules, I hope this sheds some light on what has been going on this month.
