Kudos to the temporal narcosis ban
there are far to many counters to the Empok Nor Shenanigans and if you think this is a real possibility of being played bring the tech to shut the deck down.
Its only a game ** probably the best counter
Ferengi Infestation (and then get to empok nor with more cunning first)
Q-Net (block enemy ship, the empok nor deck played in ECC doesnt seed much diplomancy if any)
But all things aside, the word "unlimited" is bad card design, so we can blame decipher. I think what needs to be discussed is what is "reasonable" for Empok Nor download when commandeered? Maybe its not equipment, maybe its download any number of site and 1 or 2 personnel?
as for the "STP" Drop if this tech is being looked at then one may need to look at T'ong drop as well but maybe not?
The beauty of 1E is its a game about choices, theres so many different combos out there if you think it might get played put the tech in, if you dont and it does, then it would be rough
