Star Wars Campaign: T2, sector 2: Intel Sweep

Official mission
Imperial force
Rebel fprce. Poulp is more interesting in detroying the other flagship
red squadron deployment, B-Wing covered by X-Wing
B-Wing covered by 3 blue A-Wing and Stella

Triple Gamma deployment from the Imperial side

Turn 1 (5:1) 
"Here is Commander Poulp. Their flagship is mine! Ignore all other orders."

Poulp could not resist the call for glory and prepared his attack to kill the Order 66 instead of the official mission.

Imperial moved fast, Rebel took their time. Order 66 going for the objectives, Stella for the kill.
Imperial were rushing in, the Reb waited before striking
Order 66 was able to capture some intel right away.

Turn 2 (3:6)

As the Imperial were carelessly moving forward, Poulp triggered his trap. The A-Wing sped up toward the Tie Bombers, covered by the Tie Fighters of the Beta Squadron. Half of the Beta Squadron became stardust before they knew what hit them.

Poulp shot on zeta squadron, 2 dmg, too short to shoot at Order 66. Beta squadron is engaged by A/W, reduced to 1 squadron, which was badly damaged, A-wing lost 2 dmg points during the T/F turn.

X-Wing red moved to intercept the Eta Squadron
A-Wing engaged the Tie Fighters in order to cripple the Tie Bomber before they could hit Stella

Stella moved toward Order 66

Turn 3 (2:3)

Poulp was over excited. Order 66 was in proximity. Both corvettes exchanged shots, with Stella penetrating through Order 66  and shaking up its crew.
Meanwhile the Tie Bombers moved through the A-Wings and shot at Stella, downing its starboard shields.

The B-wing were intercepted by the Tie Interceptors before reaching Order 66.

1xTie/B out, B/W red out, B/W gold out, 1xA/W out. T/B shot torpedoes at Stella

Intercepted before even shooting

too close to be safe

So close from torpedoing Order 66

Turn 4 (2:6)

"Brings these shields up. Intercept their bombers"
 Stella engineering crew brought in 1 shield up, 2 dmg to Order 66 who stayed in the fight. Order 66 shot back, captured 1 more objective.
1 T/B out, 1 A/W out
Order 66 continue Intel Sweep, while Stella plans a boomerang attack

1 more objective captured by the Imperials

Severe brawl in the middle

Turn 5 (6:2)

Rebel were losing too many fighters and the Tie Interceptors were almost unscathed. Poulp thought for a second to leave but remained in control. 

"Whatever the costs, I will have that corvette in my victory list."
 Order 66 turned 180 degres to show its best virgin starboard and shot at Stella. The shot significantly damaged the Rebel ship, panicking its crew.  (Crit: Crew panic, revised effect: reroll dice for 1 turn)

Poulp ordered a difficult shot to Order 66 and the training of the crew paid. The shot traveled the space between the 2 corvettes and hit a critical area of Order 66, detroying the imperial flagship.
(at that time, I realized that I had forgotten the counter 2 on A/W since the beginning.)
A/W destroyed, T/I destroyed. X/W 1 point left, 1 T/I destroyed
Order 66 shot and almost won, but...

The Rebel ship stood still and deadly replied. Order 66 was no more.
Turn 6 (2:5) 
"no surrender, no retreat!"
Stella decided to stay in the fight but ordered the X-wing to leave, as they would no survive another attack or counter attack from the Tie Interceptors.

1 T/I destroyed. X/W prepared to jump to hyperspace
Turn 7 (2:2)
Turn 8 (4:3)  
Turn 9 (1:4)
Turn 10 (1:4)

The X-Wing were able to jump, but they were too slow for the Tie Interceptors who caught up with them and finished them. 
Before it was long, they ranged in, unsucessfully, with Stella. Poulp decided to stay, it was foolish to try to outrun the Tie Interceptors. It paid well, as at the end, Stella, while damaged, stood victorious and free to sweep all remaining intel, surrounded by starfighter wrecks.

Too slow

Deadly dance

Rebel: 4 VP (3 Intel, 1 Space ship)
Imperial: 2VP (2 Intel)
