Released in 2001, The Voyager expansion, and its follow-on expansion, The Borg, represented the start of a new era in STCCG. With a focus on the faraway Delta Quadrant, with its new affiliations, new species, new missions, and new dangers, Voyager was a new game in a lot of ways.
One of the ways is that unlike previous STCCG expansions, Voyager was designed to be a standalone game. The starter decks were designed to be playable out of the box in Warp Speed format, or combined with booster packs for a fully immersive 1e Constructed experience.
To celebrate this milestone in the game, the September event will be the standalone constructed format introduced by Decipher 19 years ago. Only cards from the Voyager and The Borg expansions will be eligible for this event. Will the Voyager crew find their way home? Will the Vidiians harvest everyone they come across? Will the Kazon blow up whoever is in their way, will the Hirogen hunt their prey to victory, or will the Borg do their Borg thing and dominate the spaceline? We'll all find out soon enough - stay tuned!
Everyone Registered or Thinking about Registering, please read the following:
As this is an OTF event, the OTF rules and ban list remain in force. HOWEVER, for this event I am considering allowing Delta Quadrant Spatial Scission to be played - albeit in its current, errataed form.
I don't want any surprises or hard feelings though, and I know that this card is one of the main culprits of the "Dark times" of 2001 to 2002, so if anybody who's playing in this event (or even considering playing in this event) has an objection, then we'll move forward without it. The main goal of this thing is to have fun, and if seeing DQSS in the card pool makes it less fun, then it won't be in the card pool.
At this point my going-in position is to allow it, but if anyone has any objections, either post here or PM me with your thoughts. I will make a final decision by Monday, 8/31 so everyone has next week to build their decks before we start the event.
This event kicks off on Friday, September 4th. If you haven't registered yet, what are you waiting for? It's not too late - yet - but it will be soon!
