From Bajor with Love

by Kevin Jaeger, Staff Writer

24th March 2008

"Begin recording, Moneypenny. Agent Kira Nerys, we’ve received your uplink transmission regarding the developments in the Demilitarized Zone, the discovery in the Parvenium Sector, and the request for assistance from our contacts on Bringloid V. M has been fully briefed and is coordinating efforts between religious elements and the resistance elements in order to build an effective consensus with which to deal with the ongoing situations.

You are hereby given command authorization over each of these three missions. While you normally handle such missions alone, and given the sensitivity of the situation, you have been assigned a coalition team comprised of the best personnel from both the religious and resistance factions. I will discuss some of the specialized talents they possess now at your disposal.

Opaka (Kai of Bajor) is the leader of the religious faction and she will allow you to search for the most "talented" member of your new team, Leeta (Union Member)- code name "chesticles". Leeta has a tremendous talent for overcoming dilemmas that your team will face by going rogue. Just make sure you don’t ask what she’s doing…it's none of your business what she’s doing on her "off time". An Issue of Trust and Personal Duty, dilemmas that even though they will shut down your current mission attempt, with Leeta’s help will only serve to make Aid Lost Colony even easier for you to complete. Once you have Investigated Maquis Activity, Krim (Thoughtful Tactician) will allow you to focus all your attention on Investigating Alien Probe without having to worry about getting distracted by a Distress Call, getting Overwhelmed, being Outclassed or facing the consequences of an unfortunately Tragic Turn. Benjamin Sisko (Shipwright) will provide helpful skills for overcoming popular dilemmas in space and has a talent for increasing the range of your transportation which will allow you complete you missions more quickly. Rounding out the core of your team is Bariel Antos(Esteemed Vedek) who’s ability to inspire your team will only make completing missions easier.

Moving on to the rank and file of your team, your will find that some of them will be able to contribute valuable abilities to cover an array of situations. Jadzia Dax (Soldier of Fortune) will use some of her innate "talents" to help you dig for a card or cards you may need and with high cost personnel like Bariel and Opaka, you will essentially look through 1/10th of your deck each time. Odo (Wayward Link) is the team medic with a strong knowledge of Bajoran physiology who can save bajoran members of the team. If you find yourself in a situation where you need the expertise of a core member of your team but he or she is unavailable, Borum will sacrifice himself to find that leader. Lastly, Mullibok (Gnarled and Battered Old Tree) with his experience and stubbornness will be hard for an opponent to stop or kill.

Mission profile of Aid Lost Colony is as follows: recon suggests that you will need to come up with Integrity greater than 39 in order to complete Aid Lost Colony. That’s where Akoram Laan (Revered Poet), Li Nalas (Legend of Bajor) and The Sirah (Storyteller) come in. Two of the three of them along with Opaka and Bariel can utilize the U.S.S. Enterprise-J to solve with Integrity of 40.

As for the tools and weapons at your disposal, you are loaded with a full set of Crystalline Entity’s in order to deal with Unexpected Difficulties, a Biogenic Weapon, a Strange New World, a Temporal Incursion, the Machination of an opponent, or an opponent who begins Tampering with Time. Trust your Natural Instincts and use the Dark Secrets you have known as you need them.

The task force of three Vedek Assembly Transports, two Bajoran Scout Vessels and the Kitara should arrive shortly to transport your team to the missions.

Good Luck, may you walk with the Prophets."

Kevin Jaeger WILL RETURN in "Temporal Incursions are Forever"...
