Sunday Starships: The Battle of Vertex

The Chancellor campaign will soon see its first battle!  In a sequence of events that couldn't have worked out better if I'd planned it, the eponymous Terran SGDN and part of the Avarian Homeworld Fleet both wandered into hex 0506, just as an Avarian supply convoy entered that same hex on its way to the safety of the nearby Vertex system in hex 0505.

Since I was unable to procure any captains to game out the battle on the tabletop this weekend, we'll try to play the scenario sometime this week.  Meanwhile, I will share the order of battle.  Kudos to Avarian admirals dathbain and Gonsalvo for some great spaceship names!

Definitely should be an interesting action, seeing what the Avarians can get out of the hex before the SGD blows too many cargo ships to smithereens!
