Red Alert Space Fleet Warfare
Hurricon 18 Pregame background #3

Hurricon Day (H Day) established as confirmed Sathar Invasion date. Deep INTEL asset Man E. Bothans died to bring us this information.

Time FY81; H-11 Standard Days to Invasion.

XI-3 confirms the arrival of Capital ship squadrons to include Carriers and Flagship class SAVs to Sathar Fleet assembly areas. Additional Long Range Fighter squadrons accompany these formations. The Sathar Xagyg and Yreva fleets are now estimated to each be twice the size of Federation Task Forces. The Sathar fleet threatening the White Light system has not seen additional assets in the numbers observed at the other Jump Assembly Areas.

Federation Deployment Map (simplified)

UPF Fleet Command EXORD-81.03.14

Defense Alert Status Red: All Fleets will recall key personnel and expedite replenishment of all stores and munitions. Fleet commanders will begin analysis of Sathar threats to their Defense Areas in coordination with XI-3. Fleet Commanders will conduct SIM war games for their Defense Areas and report results.

UPF 1st Fleet comprising of TF Prenglar and TF Cassidine is established with an initial Defense Area of the Prenglar Star System.

UPF 2d Fleet is established with Strike Force Nova providing as the core with the Fromeltar Star System assigned as the initial Defense Area. The Dramune and Fromeltar System Militias are assigned to the UPF 2d Fleet effective immediately and until released by UPF Fleet Command or upon recall to their home systems due to imminent Sathar attack.

TF Epsilon is established with a Defense Area in the White Light Star System. All non-assigned UPF squadrons will proceed to White Light at best speed. Risk jumps authorized. The Theseus and White Light System militias are assigned to TF Epsilon effective immediately and until released by UPF Fleet Command or upon recall to their home systems due to imminent Sathar attack.

I love games like this with a back story! Also great for a continuing series of battles fought from convention to convention.

Looks amazing, can't wait to see it in a few weeks.

Well in many aspects this has been 30+ years in the making for me…beats the heck out of card board chits that came with the Knight Hawks game.
