    Admiral Tigh heads to the Labs for some private time; while there, he takes a few minutes to come up with some new tactics (Draws 1 Tactics card.)

    Hopefully he has come up with some good ideas; DRADIS is exploding with new contacts. Fresh Cylon ships have jumped into this sector to join the fight and Galactica comes under immediate fire.


    Heavy Assault
    Instructions:
    1. Activate Raiders; The three Raiders at 9 O'Clock move to 11 O'Clock.
    2. Setup 2 Basestars, 1 Viper and 3 Civilian Ships; A second Basestar appears at 9 O'Clock. One Viper launches to 7 O'Clock. One Civilian Ship appears at each of 7, 5, and 3 O'Clock.
    3. Special Rule - Heavy Bombardment; Each Basestar immediately attacks Galactica.

    Basestar #1: Basestar #1 (1d8=2) Miss!
    Basestar #2: Basestar #2 (1d8=1) Miss!

    Turn Progress:
    1. Recieve Skills - 2 Leadership, 3 Tactics
    2. Movement Step - Move to Research Lab
    3. Action Step - Activate Research Lab; Admiral Tigh draws 1 Tactics
    4. Crisis Step - Heavy Assault
    5. Activate Cylon Ships Step - N/A
    6. Prepare for Jump Step - N/A
    7. Discard and Check for Human Defeat - Not quite yet.

    Fortunately, even in Admiral Tigh's absence the CIC watch is able to maneuver to evade the Cylon attacks. Next turn coming up shortly.

    Alright, listen up guys. I think it might be better if someone on Galactica tells those civilian ships to get the frak out of the way or moves the unmanned vipers up towards 3 o'clock. I'm going to 9 o'clock to stop any future raiders and maybe take down that heavy raider and basestars.

    Apollo, if you like you can use an Action to attack the Cylon ships. All you've done so far is Move.

    I'll also take this time to mention that I'll handle all the rolling for the game.

    Ah, forgot about that.

    5 Piloting - Maximum Firepower

    Target heavy raider first until it's down and then one of the basestars with my remaining shots.

    Apollo's Maximum Firepower; 6, 6, 3, 7

    The Heavy Raider must have had a skilled pilot; It took all of Apollo's efforts to bring it down but ultimately he succeeds. A cheer rises up in the CIC for Galactica's CAG, but a disturbing report from Damage Control brings the bridge back to a sober reality.

    Yes, you can say that because the number of cards you ultimately contribute is public. And you're already allowed to say little or lot, which you basically did.

    I'm sure there's some way to abuse this if everyone does it, so I guess try not to do it too often? :?

    We need to cover the civilians at 3 o'clock. Our best bet is to activate command and get some more vipers out to cover them.

    So 2 Leadership - Executive Order on Admiral Tigh

    I would suggest launching a viper at 5 and moving to 3 with each action

    The Chief makes a sobering suggestion to Saul Tigh who immediately moves to Command and launches another viper in an effort to cover the civilians at risk behind the ship. Meanwhile, the Chief has made a potentially devastating discovery.
