Post Chain of Command #16: Some Pithy Quote About 19
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… Danny!

Here are this week’s entries:

Entry A wrote:
[Evt] 2 •Authorization Accepted

Event
Plays in your core. When you are about to destroy an event in your core to pay its cost, you may stop your Commander aboard his or her corresponding ship and destroy this card to pay that cost.
"Identify for retina scan... Security scan approved."


Entry B wrote:
[Evt] 1 Battle Bridge

Plays on your ship with three or more staffing icons (limit one per ship.) When an engagement begins involving this ship, you may destroy this event to choose one: download a Maneuver Interrupt; download this ship's corresponding Commander and place him or her aboard this ship; or name a personnel involved in this engagement. He or she cannot be killed during this engagement.

“Note in ship's log that at this star time, I am transferring command to the Battle Bridge.”


Entry C wrote:
[Equ] (2) Environmental Suit
When your personnel present is about to be killed by a dilemma, you may discard this equipment to prevent that.
Order - Discard a random card from hand to initiate combat aboard your ship. If you win, randomly select an opponent's personnel involved to be killed.

"Do you remember your Zero-G combat training Mr. Worf?"
"I remember it made me sick to my stomach"


Entry D wrote:
[Equ] 0 •Tieran's Neural Implant
Artifact. (To play this card, you must have completed a mission requiring Acquisition, Anthropology, or Archaeology.) Plays in your core.
Order - Name a unique personnel you command. That personnel gains Leadership and Treachery and is the corresponding Commander of the ship he or she is aboard. You may not execute this order again until the named personnel is killed.
"To be fully effective, it would have to come in direct contact with her skin."


Entry E wrote:
[Evt] (1) •Attack Pattern Alpha
Event
Maneuver. Plays in your core. When an engagement begins, each player may reveal a number of cards from the top of their deck equal to the number of [Cmd] icons on his or her ship(s) involved. Until the end of the engagement, each player adds the total cost of their revealed cards to the attributes of one of their ships, then places each revealed card on the bottom of his or her deck. If you win, you may return this to hand to unstop and restore the range of each ship involved.
"Bring us about."


Entry F wrote:
[Equ] (2) •Pattern Enhancers
When your personnel present is facing a dilemma, he or she gains Transporters until the end of that dilemma. When you are checking mission requirements, your personnel present gains Transporters until the end of the mission attempt.
Designed to aid in the reception and rematerialization sequence of a ship's transporter system, these could be operated by any member of an away team or ship's crew.


Entry G wrote:
[Evt] (3) •Arbiter of Succession
Plays in your core. When your Chancellor is killed, you may download an [Kli] Honor and a [Kli] Treachery personnel. Your opponent chooses one of those to be removed from the game, the other is placed at your Qo'noS.
"My decision will be announced at high sun tomorrow. Excellent tea. Good day, ladies."


Entry H wrote:
[Evt] (2) Aggressive Charge
Event
Plays in your core. While attempting a Region: Neutral Zone mission, your [TNG] personnel may meet Strength requirements using Integrity, and your [Rom] personnel may meet Strength requirements using Cunning.
"Commander Tomalak, as I'm sure you already know, we were responding to a warnings of Romulan incursions at Nelvana Three."





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



This week’s contest is...

Card #19! This card must come between Rinnak Pire (Personnel - Bajoran - Card #18) and Hawkutus, One With the Borg (Personnel - Borg - Card #20). We have a tight fit this time, so the card must be a Bajoran or Borg personnel.

Vote: A (all three of A, B, and C are superb creations, this was a tough one)

Quote:

Infiltrator. This personnel is the corresponding Commander of the ship she is aboard.
Order - If this personnel is aboard an opponent's ship, you command all personnel present, and you command personnel present with sufficient staffing icons to staff that ship, take command of that ship. It is now a [Bor] ship.

Invasive Drone gets her and her forces on to the enemy ship; she lurks in Engineering while her drones assimilate the crew before she finally assumes command of the vessel.

Bajoran Resistance. You may play this personnel at Cardassia Prime. While this personnel is present with your [Car] personnel, he loses [Baj] and gains [Car].
During the occupation, the Obsidian Order inserted sleeper agents into the Bajoran Resistance, leading to many Resistance Cells being snuffed out by the Cardassian Military.
Integrity 3 Cunning 6 Strength 6

Note: I have no idea if this is true or Canon, but it sounds like something the OO would do. Also, it gives me a chance to combine a few things onto one non-unique card that could fit into several different decks.
