This Ship-pdf clocks in at 7 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let’s take a look!
The light cruiser is the workhorse of the Katar fleet and clocks in as a tier 6 destroyer, which comes with medium 100 shields, mk 4 armor and defenses, and an Arcus Max power core. Thruster-wise, we have L6 and a basic drift engine, and the systems are powered by a mk1 trinode computer, and the vessel offers good crew quarters and has basic medium-range sensors. The light cruiser has 3 cargo holds, and also uses the focus on social skills that Katar crew seem to have. The Piloting skill, at +19, is pretty damn high, but in comparison, the crew has less to offer regarding Engineering, as here, we only have +13.
Weaponry-wise, we have heavy laser cannons and torpedo launchers on the front, flak throwers port and starboard, and light torpedo launchers on the aft, and light particle beams for the turrets. Unless I’ve miscalculated, the ship should btw. be using its full assortment of BP available – it does have PU left, but yeah. Nice. Shields btw. are, as with other katar-vessels, slightly focused on front and back. The pdf coems with a Computers-table to know information about it. The table features a minor typo and erroneously refers to the Fast Attack vessel in the header in a cut-copy-paste remnant
As always, we get a fully filled-out starship sheet version of the ship ready for your perusal, and a one-page full-color handout style version of the ship’s great artwork. We also have paper-standing minis of the ship, and the pdf offers a fully depicted, great map of the ship, which makes sense regarding room placement, offers a katar garden, cold storage, gravity reactor, etc.
Editing and formatting are very good on a formal and rules-language level. Layout adheres to a two-column full-color standard, and the pdf comes with a great artwork of the vessel, and the cartography for the vessel in full-color is excellent. The pdf doesn’t have bookmarks, but needs none at this length.
Paul Fields and Jim Milligan deliver a cool workhorse army vessel that does a good job. It doesn’t feel over-engineered and functional, and thus manages to capture rather well the intended flavor. All in all, this is a good vessel, well worth checking out. My final verdict will clock in at 4 stars.
