I've been messing around with the Bajoran Beginner Deck, courtesy of @edgeofhearing. I'm ready to attempt a mission, and I need your help!

I'm attempting The Celestial Temple, Seek Prophetic Guidance with six personnel. It is the first mission attempt of the game so there are no dilemmas under it or any other mission. Grab a deck, draw six dilemmas and spend no more than six total cost for this space mission. Be sure to let me know which order they go in as appropriate.

After at least a week, I'll go through and see if you stop me. Feel free to put in some hidden text (or invisotext) that I will not look at until after I make the attempt if you want to include strategy or somesuch.

This is based on not knowing any of the personnel you have in play or if you've used Accession to get people into the attempt but looking at the decklist to try to keep things equal-

"Rapid Progress", Counterinsurgency Program, Infinite Diversity - Name Astrometrics
Outclassed
Arresting Display
Any Means Necessary
Gorgon - depending on what's in my hand
Nothing to Lose
Once More Unto the Breach, Tactical Disadvantage (depending on the deck I'm playing)
Slightly Overbooked - depending on what missions I have

If I knew who was at the mission, my dilemma selection would change accordingly.

I'm pretty sure he wants us to pick an actual deck we own and draw dilemmas for it. I opened Lackey and drew.

Here's my play for my Tribble Bomb deck:
Infestation
Infestation
The Dal'Rok

Was hoping for a Where No One Has Gone Before, but no luck.

Oh hm, OK, in that case:

Not a good draw.

I pulled from ten different decks and, since I don't know what personnel are present which makes a too significant of importance in terms of what I would or would not give, I adjusted accordingly. And yes, I do use all of those dilemmas (some moreso than others)

I simply went with walls as a result. Plus, with the Sisko that can mess with the order possibly present, it limits dilemma choices that I would normally choose (My Pattern Loss - Vanishing Act)
