Allegiance: Old Faces on the Enterprise

by James Hoskin, Staff Writer

9th December 2009

Continuing the week of spoilers of the Allegiance team from The Motion Picture, come Montgommery Scott and Spock. Before they are spoiled though, a quick reminder that Hikaru Sulu and Leonard H. McCoy have already been spoiled in text form, as have Willard Decker and Ilia.

[Fed] 4 •Spock (Experienced Officer)
[Cmd] [TOS] [Pa] Human/Vulcan
•Anthropology •Archaeology •Engineer •Programming •Science
You may play this personnel at cost –1 to ignore his ability. You may play this personnel aboard your [TOS] ship that has a [TOS] personnel who has a cost of 4 or more aboard.
"I offer my services as Science Officer."

The first old face belongs to Spock. Assuming the current artwork is final, it shows a close-up of his face as he looks just to the right of the camera. His right eyebrow sits in the raised position, while the rest of his face shows a few lines, but - appropriately - no emotion. Through a quirk of the light, the pointy end of his right ear appears to be glowing. He may or may not be wearing his uniform, as it is hard to tell from the image. The background consists of a dark wall with some darker shapes on it. Oh, and it may just be my monitor, but it looks like Spock has five o'clock shadow.

[Fed] 4 •Montgomery Scott (Confident Engineer)
[Cmd] [TOS] [Pa] Human
•2 Engineer •Physics •2 Transporters
You may play this personnel at cost –2 to ignore his ability. When you play this personnel, if you command another [TOS] personnel who has a cost of 4 or more, you may remove an event in an opponent's core from the game.
"She'll launch on time, sir. And she'll be ready."
[Integtity 6] [Cunning 5] [Strength 5]

The second old face belongs to Scotty. Assuming the current artwork is final, it shows him from the shoulders up, in his grey uniform, facing the camera. He appears to be standing in a corner, with two windows (or maybe doorways) on either side of him. While he doesn't look as old as some of his colleagues, his hair is starting to show signs of going grey, and his face looks a little lumpy. He has a fine moustache though, which neatly covers the gap between his upper lip and nose. If only mine looked that good at the end of movember.

Short and sweet, The Motion Picture spoiler week is now two-thirds complete. Check back here on Friday for the final two spoilers (can you work out who is missing?), and a deck idea to make use of the whole team.
