Welcome to Hirogen Week

by Maggie Geppert, Vice Chairman

12th August 2018

Welcome to Hirogen week! The Hirogen appeared in nine episodes of Star Trek: Voyager and became a full-fledged affiliation in First Edition in The Borg expansion.  They get their first passing reference in Message in a Bottle.  The Voyager crew gives them holodeck technology in the two-part episode The Killing Game.  Hirogen sometimes become prey, as was seen in Tsunkatse.  The consequences of holodeck technology are seen in Flesh and Blood.

We have some fun stuff for you this week.  Charlie Plaine (MidnightLich) has a design article for First Edition.  I’ll be checking out a basic Hirogen deck.  Nathan Miracle (GooeyChewie) will be writing a “what-if” design article for 2nd Edition.  Finally, Andreas Rheinländer (Dukat) is back with more strategy articles.

This week’s Top 5 video in features Dan Van Kampen (Iron Prime), who is not a professional. ;-) Also, I apologize in advance because the video also features my three-year-old daughter having an epic meltdown.  Feel free to snigger at your leisure.

Now to this week’s contest.  It’s a hunt – a word hunt! (I have no idea what's up with Google Photos. Click on the link to view the pic.)
