The Very Flower of Humanity

by Maggie Geppert, Next in Line

10th October 2017

Mirror Kirk kept control of his ship in the Mirror Universe by any means necessary, including torture. He uses the Agonizer to maintain control on his ship.  You too can keep your preeminent crew members in your attempt using this piece of equipment, one of many from the latest Second Edition expansion, The Nth Degree.  Say a subordinant (an [AU] [Pa] personnel) is trying to take over the ship (i.e. your best [AU] [Pa] personnel is about to be stopped by a dilemma).  Keep your grip on power by putting the subordinant in the Agonizer (stop them) to prevent the other stop. 


I wonder how history would have played out if Cochrane hadn't turned the tables on your invasion force. Humans might be your slaves instead of the other way around.

I really enjoy playing Mirror Starfleet.  I find their flavor of getting bonuses for having no cards in hand to be particularly intriguing and I've been looking for an excuse to play them again.  This is an achievement deck, going for "Everything's...alternate!"  That's why there are so many [NA] [AU] personnel in this deck.  I'd have put in a few normal universe Starfleet personnel otherwise.  As it stands, Brennan Scott, D'Vela, Trip and T'Pol are probably the standout personnel in the deck.

You want to do Jupiter, Test Experimental Engine first and then Investigate Refinery so you can play Accumulated Knowledge cheaply late game.  You'll want to use Optimism to get stuff out of your hand and under your deck if it takes awhile to get out the Starship Defiant.  And I've added in some Delphic Expanse missions and Trellium-D to maximize my use of, oh, wait, ummmm, never mind!

Look over there!  Squirrel!
