Happy 15th anniversary of The Continuing Committee! In the spirit of reflecting on the history of the CC and Second Edition, I have decided to run a Return to Farpoint series. This will be a set of online events moving us through the history of Second Edition.

For this IDIC Draft event, players will be sent a set of 21 cards from Infinite Diversity Remastered, 4 headquarters missions, a mission draft pack and 6 regular draft packs. They will draft with a pod of 2-4 other players by email. Once all cards have been passed and drafted, players will build their decks from their pool.

Players will receive their mission packs on Monday, November 7th. The first round will be two weeks long to allow folks to draft, build and play. (Unless everyone gets done early, in which case, we can start a new round early.) Each round after that will be one week. Players are allowed to modify their decks between rounds.

Players will play online using Lackey and an agreed-upon method of communication (Skype, Discord, etc.).

What HQ combos are you all interested in trying out this time? I still have a couple of Strange Bedfellows and Uneasy Alliances achievements I haven't gotten yet.

I will be happy if I get to play something new, regardless. That list is too long to type here, so odds are good that whatever you decide on will work for me; as I jinx myself as I type, lol.

Borg are tough in draft bc they would lock you into having 2 HQ missions, one of which your NA personnel can’t play at. Plus all the (any can attempt except Borg) missions would be an even greater hamstring.

From pre-registration, I am guessing this is going to end up being a 2 pod event which means we have the ability to put achievement combinations in each. For reference, the Strange Bedfellows / Uneasy Alliance achievements are as follows:

[Baj] & [Rom]
[Car] & [Fer]
[Maq] & [Dom]
[DS9-E] & [Kli]
[DS9] & [Dom]
[Baj] & [Car]
[Maq] & [Fer]
[DS9-E] & [TN]

I have absolutely no preference, just giving folks some options.

I have made a wheel of names for 2E, much like @AllenGould's version for 1E. I didn't much care for the random affiliation pairings I got, so I did these instead:

[Rom] [Kli] [TN] [SF]

[Maq] [DS9] [Dom] [Fer]

Starfleet? I thought we never used them since their HQ got the +10 bonus. If we are using them, dibs on that pod. :shifty:

Actually, I have never put them in because they barely have any good missions. I had not considered the HQ bonus. Hmmm, gotta reconsider that.

I'm totally fine with the mix, you just might want to consider swapping Starfleet out for TNG or DS9 Earth.
