In Training

2016-01-09

[P] 2 In Training
Consume: 2. (Your opponent places the top card of his or her dilemma pile face up beneath this mission.) Randomly select a personnel who costs 1 or 2. All other personnel who cost 1 or 2 are stopped.
"Tighten the back of your tongue. ... Keep trying. You've almost got it."
4 R 18

Negatives: Planet only. Consumes 2 then overcome for 3 total under mission.

Positives: Stops. All but one 1 or 2 Cost Personnel.

Extra: In Training saw a lot of use when it first came out. At that time players were using a lot of low cost personnel to throw at Missions and this would easily stop most of those away teams. But since then many cards with high cost but cost reductions built in like Julian Bashir, Rebel Captain and Leonard H. McCoy, Experienced Advisor have entered the game. Plus, cards like Energize have also allowed for higher cost cards to be played at a reduced cost. This is one of those Dilemmas where other Dilemmas do practically the same thing for less. Dual cards like Coolant Leak and In Development have pretty much taken over for it. They may cost more but both work in Space and on Planets and would leave only one Dilemma to be overcome under the Mission unlike the three In Training would eat up.

Applicable Cards: Coolant Leak; In Development; In Training; Energize; Julian Bashir, Rebel Captain; Leonard H. McCoy, Experienced Advisor;
