Description Edit | History

From the publisher's website:

A Call to Arms is the game of space combat in the universe of Babylon 5. Throughout the station’s turbulent history, armed fleets have enacted the harsher policies of their governments. Now you can play out these confrontations on the tabletop with entire fleets drawn from the Earth Alliance, Minbari Federation, Narn Regime, Centauri Republic, or any one of the many other races that dwell in the galaxy.

From skirmishes involving single cruisers hunting down raiders to the clashing of allied fleets against the forces of ancient beings aeons old, A Call to Arms is your ticket to exciting battles that take place in the depths of space. From tiny forces of raiders to the massed battle of Corianna VI, involving the League of Non-Aligned Worlds, Minbari, Vorlons and Shadows, anything is possible!

This giant box set contains a complete rulebook, a ship recognition guide with nearly 100 different classes of warship inside, a giant Babylon 5 space combat poster and enough counters to immediately begin using all the ships in the game several times over! The main box set contains counters for every one of the 90+ ships detailed in the rulebooks but stand by for highly detailed fleet box sets to be made available later this year, including the Earth Alliance, Centauri Republic and ISA!
