over the years we've had cards created for the Core/Main Cast Members where they were represented by a different affiliations than the primary affiliation for their shows / .
Today's question is:
Do you like having cards where a core/main cast member has a different affiliation than expected? Do you feel like there is a line/requirement on what should count as being a different than expected affiliation, and if so, what is it?
I like having versions of mains with different affiliations. Adding Picard to my TNG deck makes me smile.
I feel that the line on what counts as being of an affiliation has been a bit blurry when it comes to certain cards. Often a "worked with / integrated into / advanced the goal of" the affiliation has been a means of determining this, but it's not always been clear cut. When working on A Private Little War we had originally proposed Baroner be a version of Captain Kirk as he was the liaison to the Klingons (worked with), but as you can see we ended up making him / instead. Concerns were raised that he was working contrary to the Klingons and was more of an Infiltrator than a affiliated personnel.
