On the other hand, to be fair:

This is "almost in range" for Millenium Falcon. Max range for quadlasers: 25 SU.

Few seconds later Falcon is caught in a DS tractor beam. By the way - range also 25 SU. Wink

OK, but what I meant is: how long, in rounds, (not using FTL drive) takes for a typical ship to get off the weapon range of another ship, given the ranges you have provided in previous post? Let's assume the ship goes at its max sub-light speed and tries to escape battlefield.

i think this is what youre looking for, but since ships of both genres have differing max sublight speeds i cant give a definitive answer to your question.

name-max range in seconds
AA
Defensive Missile-8 seconds
Offensive Missile-600 seconds
Smart Missile-499 seconds
Extended Range Smart Missile-1,497 seconds
Point Defense Laser-4 seconds
Antiproton Cannon-4 seconds
ST
Phasers-1 second
TNG Torpedoes-13.5 seconds
TOS Torpedoes-10 seconds

I missed this the first time around. What sort of range do you envision for Andromeda's nova bombs?

Ok, so you're still firing from the outer limit of the inner solar system. That makes sense with what we saw in the series.

Thanks for the stats!

well based on the information provided here, this is what the ranges would look like

Defensive Missile-1-131,250/262,500/525,000SU; 1-262,500/525,000/1,050,000km
Offensive Missile-1-178,125/356,250/712,500SU; 1-356,250/712,500/1,425,000km
Smart Missile-1-169,088/338,176/676,353SU; 1-338,176/676,353/1,352,705km
Point Defense Laser-1-150,000/300,000/600,000SU; 1-300,000/600,000/1,200,000km
Antiproton Cannon-1-150,000/300,000/600,000SU; 1-300,000/600,000/1,200,000km

If I do what I did with the Star Trek conversion, the ranges would look like this:

Defensive Missile-1-131/262/525SU; 1-263/525/1,050km
Offensive Missile-1-178/356/713SU; 1-356/713/1,425km
Smart Missile-1-169/338/676SU; 1-338/676/1,353km
Point Defense Laser-1-150/300/600SU; 1-300/600/1,200km
Antiproton Cannon-1-150/300/600SU; 1-300/600/1,200km


Remember range lister in km in the SWD6 rules are for within atmosphere. It should not be used with another universes space range.
