Post Chain of Command #10: Ten Times Two
Welcome to Fill in the Blank Season 2: Chain of Command!

Each week I will post the collector’s information for one of the cards in the set’s cardlist. Contestants are free to create whatever card they see fit for that slot in the cardlist, keeping in mind the surrounding cards. As the contest progresses, the cardlist will become more and more defined, guiding the contests’ choices.

The theme of our set is Chain of Command. Not every card has to fit the theme, of course, but it’s something to keep in mind when voting. Speaking of voting, as per normal each contestant will vote for one of the previous week’s entries (with the exception that as the contest runner, I will vote ONLY in the case of a tie).

This week’s winner is… WeyounsLastClone!

[Rom] (4) •Tomalak, Influential Commander

Commander: Deranas. When you play this personnel, he is cost -1 for each Neutral Zone mission in play. While this personnel is at a [Fed] mission, he and the ship he is aboard are attributes +1.

Here are this week’s entries:

Entry A wrote:
[S] 0 Go Down With The Ship
Unless you have 3 Treachery or no Honour and Integrity <20, this dilemma is placed on your ship.
Damage - Your Commanders and your [Cmd] , Honour, Leadership, and Officer personnel cannot beam from this ship.
"This ship has been our home. It's kept us together. It's been part of our family... And right now, it needs one of us."


Entry B wrote:
[S] (0) Nowhere To Run
Dilemma
Place this in an opponent's core. He or she now commands this card.
Pursuit.
Order- Place your ship at a mission where your opponent commands a ship. Remove this card from the game.
"We are now at warp nine point six five."
"The Borg are still gaining."


Entry C wrote:
[D] 1 Potent Beverage

Dilemma

Place this dilemma on this mission. Each of your personnel (except Androids and Holograms) is attributes -1 while facing a dilemma. When this mission is completed, place this dilemma beneath your incomplete, non-headquarters mission.

"It is... it is... It is green."


Entry D wrote:
[S] 2 Requested and Required
Image
Unless you choose to stop the corresponding Commander of this ship, randomly select a [Cmd] or Officer personnel to be stopped and place this dilemma in your core. Ships you command without their corresponding Commanders aboard are attributes -1.
"Computer, transfer all command codes..."


Entry E wrote:
[D] (3) Rules of Obedience
The personnel with the highest Integrity or fewest [SD] is stopped. Unless you have Geology and 2 Honor or 2 Security and 2 Treachery or Miles O'Brien, that personnel is killed and this dilemma returns to its owner's dilemma pile.
"Is my Terran friend behaving himself?"
"They all behave themselves when I'm in charge"


Entry F wrote:
[D] (2) Temper Tantrum
Each player discards a random card from hand. If the total cost of those cards is odd, return this dilemma to its owner's dilemma pile. If the total cost of those cards is even, your opponent chooses a personnel to be stopped.
"We have no time for chess problems. Beam me aboard!"


Entry G wrote:
[P] (4) Salvage Code
Dilemma
Unless you have a staffed ship at this mission or choose to give command of your ship with no personnel at this mission to your opponent (that opponent chooses an affiliation; that ship becomes that affiliation), all your personnel are stopped.
"You will cooperate with our salvage operations or we will begin executing your crew."


Please remember to vote for one of these entries in your post, referencing the entry’s letter.



This week’s contest is...

Card #20! This card must come between Rinnak Pire (Personel - Bajoran - Card #18) and Radshert (Personnel - Cardassian - Card #22). Could be a Bajoran, Borg or Cardassian personnel.

The recent Mayweather submission with multiple Commander keywords gave me inspiration for this Queen. In just the one movie she ends up commanding 3 different vessels in her search for a counterpart (I threw in Borg Queen's Vessel as well because why not). Once she finds her counterparts (Data, Tempted By Flesh; Locutus; plus any other assimilated [Cmd] personnel and even the Borg Dissidents (Janeway, Axum, Korok,)) they make an unstoppable team.

My Entry:

[Bor] 4 *One of One, Executive Drone

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.

EDIT: Realised I was missing a word in the ability... oops. :shifty:

It's a conspiracy!

Also, it warms the cockles of my heart to see so many [Bor] entries.

When you play this personnel, name a ship. When your opponent's personnel begin a mission attempt aboard the named ship, you may discard a number of cards from the top of your deck equal to that ship's cost to examine each personnel and equipment aboard that ship.

The way this is worded, if you execute the order, he can never get his Treachery back. Is he meant to be more like Chang?

Technically speaking, he would get it back when you discard a [Bor] card to execute the Order again. Chang's ability isn't really what I was going for either, it's a little too strong to change skills mid-mission. I wanted Locutus to have to commit before attempting a mission. Having said that, I'll try tweaking the timing clause.

Updated my entry as I discovered I'd missed out the word "ship" in the ability and so it made no sense. Fixed.

All the Best,

Vote B (sorry for not making your choice easier Gooey, but really like this concept)

[Bor](1) •Borg Queen, The Beginning and The End
[SD] Leadership
When this personnel is randomly selected by a dilemma, you may choose: download a copy of the Borg Queen; or take a copy of the Borg Queen from your discard pile into hand. Then replace this personnel with that copy.

I know I keep pushing it later and later, but the demands on my time have increased as of late (for entirely good reasons). Look for the update tomorrow morning.
