This week, we're still thinking about decks. Specifically, what kind of deck would you recommend/give to someone a few steps past beginner? Presume that they know how to play, are familiar with the rules and have a couple 'starter' games under their belt. They are getting a feel for how the game 'works,' so to speak, and want to try something else. They are not necessarily familiar with all the cards, and will probably have to go through them one at a time when looking through the deck but will not have to constantly refer to the rulebook.
My initial thoughts are DS9 Speed or High cost TNG. Both have a good number of 'star power' and explore the mechanics of the game. High cost TNG will not move too quickly allowing time to plan and DS9 Speed offers a quicker method to victory.
What would you recommend to a just-past-beginner player?
