Hi, niffiwan. Thanks.
I have a new plan in mind. The 2nd SF needs to retreat from Aldebaran. The order has not been given yet. I've crunched the numbers, and if we have the 1st UGC and 1st SF attack the 1st Cordi as planned, and then if I go and attack them as well, we can finish them off. I don't want the first Cordi returning at 150/150. Taking them out will be a huge boon for us.
Jellyfish will stand alone in Tauri for that one turn. I'm sure he can survive one turn. I would have stayed there if it was possible, but Jellyfish cannot attack the 1st Cordi so I must do it. I'm changing my orders now. We can go back Jellyfish up on the next turn.
This will put us in a good position. The enemy will only have 2 fleets to attack with in one place. They have the 1st ?, the 2nd ? and the 3rd Cordi. The 2nd Cordi is too weak. The 2nd ? can't hit Tauri. They can only attack one of our fleets twice. Either Jellyfish in Tauri with the 1st ? (if it can attack that turn) and 3rd Cordi, or someone in Aldebaran with the 2nd ? and 3rd Cordi. I doubt the 1st ? will be able to move again, but if it does, the Tauri foothold is lost. I don’t think two fleets’ attacks can kill any of us.
So this MIGHT be enough to allow us to let the 3rd CRF continue on and have one of those you mentioned (preferably 4th CRF) come up and aid us instead.
Hmmm, I’d be surprised if the Cordera have specials, they always seemed like just fodder, but it’s not something we can discount.
Oh, my prediction is the fleet going to Tauri is Zy, and may well be 150%.
