Post Chain of Command #24: Copper
Welcome to Fill in the Blank Season 2: Chain of Command!

Each week whomever is willing and able 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 the contest runner will vote ONLY in the case of a tie).

This week’s winner is… (overwhelmingly!) nalan bal

My Entry:

[Kli] 4 *Krase, Headstrong Captain

[Cmd] [Pa] Klingon

Astrometrics, Leadership, Navigation, Officer,

Commander: IKS Amar

While this personnel is facing a [S] dilemma aboard a [Kli] ship, you may place a Damage card from your core on that ship, to prevent and overcome that dilemma. You may do this only once each turn.

“Full force fields; evasive maneuvers.”

Integrity: 6, Cunning: 5: Strength: 6

Note: A 2E version of the Klingon Captain from the start of The Motion Picture, played by the late Mark Lenard of Sarek fame. He's not as versatile as the Kirks, but he can blast his way through space dilemmas, but at the cost of his ship. Speaking of which....

Bonus Card:

[Kli] 4 *IKS Amar, Persistent Defender

[Cmd] [Stf]

[Pa] K'Tinga Class

Cloaking Device
When a Damage card is placed on this ship, you may download a Maneuver.

“Imperial Klingon Cruiser Amar... severely damaged by unfamiliar weaponry... intruder unidentified... continuing to attack.”

Range: 7, Weapons 7: Shields: 7

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott
