Last saturday, we played a major battle of Pax Stellarum on our club. The clash took place on the Star Trek Universe, during the Dominion War. 5 players participated on the game, each controlling one of the main races involved in the conflict: Dominion (Jem' Hadar + Breen)and Cardassians againts Klingons, Federation and Romulans.
I controlled the romulans, and took the right flank of our table edge. The Federation deployed in the middle and the klingons on the left, facing the Cardassian forces, while my Romulans and the Federation were left to fight the Dominion. Part of our forces was designated to enter later on by reserves, through Warp Jump.
The Federation ships took the heaviest toll during the battle, due to its position on the middle of the table. I tried to hold the Breen and Jem' Hadar on the right, but my reserves were taking too long to arrive, and things were beggining to look grim...
By the end of the 4º turn, our side was too weakened and lost a Morale Check, which meant we were going to leave the table by the end of the next turn.
The Star Base on the midle of the table was the virtual objective of the game (virtual because we didn't give it any stats, it was basically decorative).
Game turn 5 ended and our side made a warp jump, withdrawing from the battle. All victory points accounted for, the Dominion side prevailed. But this war is far from over. The fate of the Alpha Quadrant is at stake. We will reorganize to fight another day.
This was another game we played to test the changes I'm implementing on Pax, and progress is being made. I hope to finish this revison by the end of the year.
