This fleet is my submission for volt's Countdown to the End Fleet Challenge. This fleet is fairly quick and pretty flexible. All five ships have moves of 3S which is pretty good. Three of the ships have captain abilities with decent cannons and four of the ships have the explorer ability to quickly get gold (15 open cargo spaces across the five ships too).
The Enterprise is the main flag ship that will predominately protect the rest of the fleet. With the reroll ability on the extra action it has a fairly high likelihood of getting two actions per turn. It also has a Canceler if needed for defense or offence. Depending on what the opponent has for ships it could hold back and protect while the rest of the fleet gathers gold or it could attack to try and hamper the opponent's gold getters.
The Akua Lapu is a cool ship that has some unique abilities. Its role could be running gold since it has 4 cargo and an explorer or it could help defend/attack if needed since it has a captain and decent cannons.
The HMS Hyena has a role similar to Akua's. A flexible ship that can do lots of things. Its ability can also be nasty for your opponent in certain situations, which is fun.
Tiger's Breath is a nice gold runner with a built in explorer.
L'Artesien is also a nice little runner with some speed and an ability that can be fun in the right situation.
