Star Trek Attack wing Val Jean Maquis Raider build

The Val Jean may not appear to be the most punchy ship, but with the right build it can be a hard to kill little mosquito of a ship, not designed to stand and fight in the line of battle but to dart in, hit and move out ready to do it again.
So following the usual rules, only the cards in the pack and at least one build under 50 points here we go.
Having this many upgrades on the named ship is a bonus, as it allows you to disable them for evades!
Chakotay has the ability to provide extra manoeuvres, alongside tuvoks ability to move after you fire, and evasive pattern omega to provide a sensor echo this ship can really shift around.  Photon Torpedoes provide some much needed punch for the ship, and with Seska to stop a ship attacking you and Dalby to repair the ship, it makes it elusive.  Ramming attack is there as a last ditch weapon, and also a suitable  cheap card for a disable for evades.

Other build options can drop the cost and add more goodies such as....

By switching out Chakotay for Hudson, you lose some of the manoeuvrability, but save yourself points.  It provides some nice flexibility to load this ship out with toys.
