It's a hex based (although I think they just came out with a vector
representation of ship to ship combat in the B5 universe.  The
complexity is
between Full Thrust and Starfleet Battles, closer to the SFB side.  The
couple of games I've played have been very slow paced even with just a
ships.	The level of detail is high (allocating damage to the section of
ship where the weapon would have actually hit, allocating power to
and systems, armor on individual systems, etc...) but the book keeping
very time consuming.

It's not a bad game, but more than I want to go through when I just want
have fun blowing a friend's cruisers out of space.

They've just released a 2nd edition that's supposed to tie up a few
ends and add some new rules.  Haven't actually seen it yet.

The minis aren't bad either.
