Here is my thinking.She's suppose to be a serious threat for her size. I was tempted to have her be a smaller Large vessel, but we'll see.The model has a massive torpedo bay in the rollbar, on both port and starboard sides of her saucer section, with another large bay in the fore of the ship just above the deflector dish (although I don't see this one modeled like the other ones). She's meant to be able to fire torpedos in every direction, and I'm not sure how to capture this aside from having red dice in each of the firing arcs, and maybe some black as well.The blue is suppose to represent the phaser arrays. Blue dice have the same odds as red dice, but are more consistent. Red dice tend to either hit really hard or do little to nothing. I'm using the Victory Class Star Destroyer as the basis for this model. I adjustments are the weapons to be spread more evenly between the front and side arcs (capturing the almost 360 offensive style of the Federation). I'm shooting for these arcs to be fairly similar in output with maybe the front arc being a bit more killy, but not too much,Apparently the Akira is also a carrier as well (something I didn't notice in First Contact). I'm going to make the other card be a Carrier Cruiser and focus on being more of a fighter support while still being a solid Cruiser.I'm spit-balling with the defensive tokens and total points cost, as well as the upgrade slots. I'll adjust it as I playtest.
