Star Trek Attack Wing USS Voyager Federation ship Builds

The voyager has some great potential builds, It is a fast ship that can zip around the board.
 I am taking a little bit of a change this time, I will put the standard 50 point builds as always, but here you can really power the ship up. For the mission it needs to be up to 75 points! and you can get there pretty easy as you will see. so our first build........

Star Trek Attack Wing IRW Algeron ship build

in this ship build we head into the shipyards above Romulus to fit out the Algeron D7 for battle.  As with all the builds I will only use the cards in the pack, and no more than 50 points.
 coming in at 31 points she wont break the bank, so lets take a closer look at what she has got, and how we can use her in battle........

Y-Wing Unboxing for X-Wing Miniatures game

Known across the galaxy as a rugged and durable starfighter, the Y-wing boasts superior armament, armor, and shielding, and can also be upgraded with an incapacitating ion cannon to disable enemy ships.
The Y wing is one of my favourite looking ships in Star Wars, and a diecast Ywing was one of my favourite toys as a child.  She is big, old and not too nimble, but is built like a tank.

Now we can get her on the Tabletop for Xwing so lets see what she adds.....

Star Trek Attack Wing Soong Borg Type 03 unboxing

Designated by Starfleet as the Borg Type 03, this class of Borg starship was used by a rogue faction of Borg led by Lore, Datas "Brother".  This unusual design was asymmetrical and totally unlike the previously encountered Borg cube and Borg scout, causing Captain Jean-Luc Picard to speculate whether it was something they constructed or an alien vessel they captured and assimilated. Whatever its origins, the vessel was still heavily armed and massively armoured, capable of great destructive power.
Lets take a look and see what you get in this dual faction Independent/Borg ship

VT-49 Decimator Ship build Star Wars XWing

To be granted command of a VT-49 Decimator is seen as a significant promotion for a middling officer of the Imperial Navy. A heavily armed transport, the VT-49 Decimator is one of the Empire’s most feared warships, often used to provide long-range reconnaissance or to deploy raiding parties past enemy forces.
Its a big ship, and great looking too, but how to get the best out of it on the tabletop... that's what I will be looking into here.   I have created a couple of builds, only using the cards that come in the pack with it, so you do not have to worry about tracking down those obscure upgrades.  So lets dive in and see what this beast can do.

Star Trek Attack wing Val Jean Maquis Raider build

The Val Jean may not appear to be the most punchy ship, but with the right build it can be a hard to kill little mosquito of a ship, not designed to stand and fight in the line of battle but to dart in, hit and move out ready to do it again.
So following the usual rules, only the cards in the pack and at least one build under 50 points here we go.
Having this many upgrades on the named ship is a bonus, as it allows you to disable them for evades!
Chakotay has the ability to provide extra manoeuvres, alongside tuvoks ability to move after you fire, and evasive pattern omega to provide a sensor echo this ship can really shift around.  Photon Torpedoes provide some much needed punch for the ship, and with Seska to stop a ship attacking you and Dalby to repair the ship, it makes it elusive.  Ramming attack is there as a last ditch weapon, and also a suitable  cheap card for a disable for evades.

Other build options can drop the cost and add more goodies such as....
