Draw Deck Strategy

in AQ, try to seed in the following order (the two regions should help with the setup): kressari rendezvous - cardassia (w. hq) - the universal space mission (w. outpost in federation mode and enterpise e) - insurrection (w. observatory and duck blind)

use spacedoor on the terran outpost for husnock ship. the mission specialists there have 2 enigneer (for process ore). never switch any of the dual affiliation personnel to federation mode (or you'll lose your ff:relaunched). security download for overseer odo there. get space-time portal, return i.s.s. enterprise to hand (with a seeded holodeck door on it), use that to get crell moset (via tmw to the ship). fly to terok nor and dock, special download process ore, get the engineers to the unit. if you haven't got any of the misters in your starting hand, just use crell moset on odo this turn, and use the rods to download mr. quark to hand for next turn.

switch the outpost to cardassian and use assign support personnel there. if you haven't got a free anthropology yet, go for an anthropology support personnel, son'a observatory for gallatin and ru'afo. get the injector and use it to fly the two over to the enterpise. with the crell personnel and any free plays, you ought to be able to fly it. get the anthropology guys back to duck blind.

generally, each turn you'll:
- process ore for two cards (uses up one hand card, so that's +1)
- play 1 gul/legate/hq card for free
- play 1 fed guy on the enterprise for free
- play 1 son'a personnel or ship for free
- play any ba'ku and type I phasers you draw for free
- download 1 support personnel
- use crell (walk one mister onto the ship, harvest him, download the next) to play 1 cardassian and draw two cards
- draw three end of turn cards with duck blind and ff: renewed
your normal card play can be used for either an additional card that would come free otherwise, or for a handshake (use free plays till you've got handshake+3, play handshake to draw 7 new, use more free plays)

don't play evek before you've got 5 other cardassians. evek gets ensnared (relocates the captive to the bring on mirror terok nor), madred gets labor camp (preferrably to cardassia, where having a [car] personnel on the planet is no risk)
