Happy Friday! Thank you all for your votes on last week's question about boutique expansions. Because of you, we'll be putting a [1E-DS9] [Kli] boutique into design soon and I'll be able to share more about that in a future project status update. But you should be excited, because you directly contributed to the future of 1E. You do that all the time actually, but often in more subtle or intangible ways. This time, it was direct and you will see the results in the semi-near future.

This week, I want to talk about ships; specifically, I want to know which ship you feel needs a new card. In this question, I'm specifically asking about ships that already have a card, but for whatever reason, you find it lacking. Perhaps the existing image isn't a good one, or the existing card is a poor match for the flavor. Maybe, you just want to see a favorite ship in a different affiliation's color.

Whatever your reason might be, I am very curious to know which ships in game you'd like to see get a new card in the future. And please, do explain your reasoning, as it's invaluable to know not just what you guys want, but why you want it.

Have a fantastic weekend. Jon Carter (pfti) is hosting his (not a) World Championship online, starting on Monday, August 10th. You can pre-register now, and be part of this event that is sporting a ton of prizes. But no matter what you do, be safe and be sane. I'll see you all again next week.

I guess I'd say Enterprise-C. She only gets one card and it's... kinda unplayable? It was such an iconic moment in TNG, not to mention the history of the Federation, that it seems a shame there's no real good version of her.

Darn, here I was coming to make a crack that we just don't have enough ships named Enterprise... and someone beats me to it with a really good argument. :cheersR:

The same could be said about the Enterprise-B. I mean attributes -2 for one turn upon being played is not good in a game where games can be won in a few turns and the attributes (7-6-7) are already minimal to start with and anytime the ship has it's attributes reduced be it from a tactic or a Baryon Sweep, it loses it's only special equipment. At least the Enterprise-C will always keep that Tractor Beam working.

The -C is a ship that doesn't need a new version as much as it needs support cards like a time-location and maybe an objective based on returning it to the past. I want a reason to play with my shiny reflections -C.

Is that even a thing?

Then again, I suppose the FC Borg Scout Vessel wasnt really a thing either...
The crashed borg ship in I,Borg (the TNG episode that introduces Hugh) was a scout vessel.

TNG logo Borg Cube- i want to play 'normal' Borg with TNG cards.

A Vidiian Voyager - can create a new deck type like the kazon Voyager (the Vidiians, arguably, captured Voyager for about 10 seconds in the episode Deadlock).

Hirogen Voyager - same reason as above, can create a new deck type for Hirogen.

Borg Voyager- OK, while the first two Voyager suggestions are serious, this one I suggest only because it would be the only Delta affiliation that doesn't have a Voyager. I will not be happy until every affiliation has a native Voyager (and Enterprise, for that matter).

:thumbsup:

While I am generally in favor of the CC's call to discontinue the 2EBC cards, IMO they left out many cards that warrant conversion.

I would suggest doing the occasional boutique expansion that pulls some more of the 2EBC cards back into the the 1E fold ...

Shoot, there's probably even an argument for a Universal Constellation-class or a Universal Sovereign-class.
I've always wanted a Lakota. An Excelsior that can keep pace with the Defiant? Yes please.

My dream card has always been the Seatak & Majestic as a dual ship cause I thought it'd be neat. Two Mirandas that get the crap kicked out of them by the Dominion always amused me.
