INTRODUCTION
Board & card game for 2 players.
Battle between two Star Trek Fleets. 
Abstract skirmish level combat.
Each figure represents a single Ship (unit). 

VICTORY
You win if you Destroy the opposing Dreadnaught.

THE MAP
Use an 8x8 chessboard.

THE SHIPS
Use chits or miniatures to represent Ships.
There are 4 types of Ships:
Scouts, Destroyers, Cruisers, Dreadnaughts.


SHIP TABLE
#	Type 		Hits
2	Scout 		1
3	Destroyer 	2
2	Cruiser		3
1	Dreadnaught	4
# = Number of that type of Ship you start the game with.
Hits = Number of Hits that type of Ship has.

SETUP
Each player places one Ship on each square of his back rows.
Ships may not stack. 

THE CARDS
Players share a common deck. 

TURN SEQUENCE
Players take turns. 
Each turn has 3 phases:
Orders Phase
Maneuver Phase
Fire Phase

ORDERS PHASE
Draw 3 cards. 
Max hand size = 5 cards.
If the deck runs out, shuffle the discard and draw from it.
Discard excess cards.

MANEUVER PHASE
Play (discard) a Move card to move one of your Ships.
The move card has a number. 
This is the number of spaces the Ship moves.
Moves can be diagonal or orthogonal. 
“Knight” type move cards allow a Ship to move like a knight in chess.
Instead of moving just one Ship in any direction, you have the 
option of moving one or more Ships forward the indicated number of 
spaces using a single move card.
Scout ships can be moved twice per turn.

FIRE PHASE
Play (discard) an Attack card to have a Ship attack.
The attack card has a number. 
This is the range of the attack.
Attacks can be diagonal or orthogonal. 
“Knight” type attack cards produce an attack with a range like a knight in chess.
The enemy Ship that is the target of the attack takes damage equal to the 
Damage value of the card.
Use Chits or coins to record damage.
A ship reduced to 0 Hits is destroyed and removed from the board.
Your opponent may play (discard) Defense cards to negate your attack.
Shield cards reduce the amount of damage done by the attack.
Shield cards automatically negate Transporter Mines & Boarding Parties.
Cruisers & Dreadnaughts can attack twice per turn.
