As for the gamer mod he will be a lone Borg cube which will Destroy my ship and the 17 others within 2 minutes, you must have the most basic gear for your ships , I will be recording as i go along (Once i have discovered how to minimize my HUD
When are you doing this (sorry if I glazed over the date)?
At the very least I would recommend you familiarize yourself with demorecord if you haven't already. IMO the best tool available to record in-game movies like what you are proposing.
I have no set date yet as i have to get the rest of the pilots and the GEar was a bit OTT you can use anyger just nothing too high in DPS like Tri-cobalt torpedoes or Transphasic (they didn't have en back then)
Also why is rank important? If you're thinking lower ranks so it's easier to destroy the ships, having a high rank character in a low tier ship is pretty much the same as having a character of the apropriate rank for that ship.
I only wish I had time to take part, sadly I don't, but good luck to you.
It was 40 Federation ships that took part in the attack of Wolf 359, not 17. 39 were destroyed. The surviving ship was the USS Endeavour
One of the ships that survived is canon, which is the Cheyenne class U.S.S. Ahwahee NCC 71620 - she was salvaged from the battle.
The USS Ahwahnee (NCC-71620) was a Federation Cheyenne-class starship that was in service with Starfleet in the late 24th century.
The Ahwahnee, along with 38 other starships, fought the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359 on stardate 44002. The ship was discovered adrift and decimated by the USS Enterprise-D following the battle. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II")
After being salvaged, in early 2368, the Ahwahnee joined Captain Picard's fleet that blockaded the Klingon-Romulan border during the Klingon Civil War. It was positioned near the lower rear of the tachyon detection grid.
According to the quote above from Memory Alpha - the ship count was 39 not 40, least thats what it appears to be.
