Simple Combat Scenario: Head to Head Sector Conquest

The goal is to conquer and hold all 5 systems.

In order to do this, you must conquer (in order, 1 through 5), and
sufficiently defend all systems while denying your enemy access to those
same systems. Reduce the enemy fleet sufficiently to prevent them from
building a shipyard, and stop/destroy enough enemy convoys to deny random
reinforcements sufficient to threaten your shipyards. You must also attain a
minimum of 13 points (see 'Victory Conditions' below)

System Conquest:
Regardless of whether a system has been taken by enemy forces, you will face
a random-sized enemy fleet upon first arrival in a new system. Roll 1d6 for
size of enemy fleet, then subtract any applicable random fleet disadvantage
(see below). If the size of the enemy fleet is less than the random fleet
disadvantage, then there is no contact. Then use appropriate simple combat
template. All surviving ships retain damage but can move and fight until
destroyed. They can only be repaired by remaining in place for two turns
(subject to random enemy attack each turn-50% chance of random attack.
1d6:1-3=no contact. 4-6=attacked) or by docking at shipyard for one turn
(subject to random enemy attack, same odds as above). The system remains
yours once you've defeated the initial fleet, but if left undefended, any
attempt to conquer it will only be countered by a randomly generated fleet.
You can (and should) choose to leave any combination of ships and/or a
shipyard to defend it.

Open Space:
Enemy convoys will only be encountered in open spaces. Roll for encounter
(1d6:1-3=contact). Then roll 1d6 for enemy escorts. 1-3= 1 CA escort. 4-6= 2
CA escorts. The random fleet disadvantage does not affect this. Random enemy
convoy(s) must be stopped=at least 3/5 freighters destroyed or captured
(5/15 damage and successful boarding party action), escorts destroyed or
disabled (10/15 damage) in 5 volleys or less. Every convoy that is stopped
decreases random enemy fleet size by one. This is the random fleet
disadvantage. For every three freighters captured, your random fleet
disadvantage is reduced by one. You will not encounter convoys in open
spaces when you have conquered both adjacent systems

Shipyards are recommended. They can only be built in systems that you hold
(by destroying an initial assault fleet). Three starships must remain in
system or open space area for three turns to build shipyard. During each
turn 50% chance of random attack. (1d6:1d6:1-3=no contact. 4-6=attack, then
roll 1d6 for size of enemy fleet. If the size of the enemy fleet is less
than the random fleet disadvantage, then there is no contact.) LOS (line of
sight) must be maintained to use or attack shipyard. Shipyard has X75
multiplier. Shipyard can construct replacement ships in 3 turns. While your
fleet can not exceed 6 ships, additional ships built at shipyards do not
count against this total. They cannot fight with full-sized fleets, but can
supplement diminished fleets. The same rule applies to surviving random
reinforcements. Since you must have a minimum of three ships to build a
shipyard, it is recommended that you build at least one shipyard and at
least two reserve ships just in case of unforseen losses. A fleet reduced to
two ships and no shipyard to fall back would have little chance of victory.
