Warp Speed Ahead

by Stephen Lee, Staff Writer

14th November 2011

Before everyone thinks the new virtual expansion Resistance is Futile is a Federation-and-Borg-only soiree, consider Launch the Phoenix.

At first glance, Launch the Phoenix looks to be a Federation-use card since you need the Enterprise-E icon to launch the Phoenix and the bonus points benefit Alpha Quadrant Federation missions, but the option of "any Lily Sloane" opens this card up to every affiliation but the Borg, as long as mission set has enough Federation icons to take advantage of the 5 point bonus while Phoenix is in orbit.

Another bonus of Launch the Phoenix is that it is a play engine for personnel and ships native to 2063 Earth as well as a draw engine when the Phoenix is launched. Can't wait for the Vulcan affiliation? Dust off those non-aligned Vulcans and build a Federation-Vulcan/Fal-tor-pan deck today!

Deck:

Try the Open-, Standard-, Revised-, and OTF-compliant Starfleet/Son'a/Vulcan deck below. Dig for Zefram Cochrane & Lily, protect the Whales in San Francisco, launch the Phoenix and do two missions for the win.
