Please feel free to post any feedback here, or you can PM me any thoughts you might have. A few highlights:
•The Dominion has infiltrated the Alpha Quadrant thanks to the destabilization caused by the Klingon Empire's collapse. As such, the Federation and Romulans have prepared their defenses and are ready to fight for their survival.
•The Cardassians have not allied themselves with the Dominion yet (otherwise Terok Nor would be an HQ in the cardpool). They have grown more bold in their advances thanks to the Klingon withdrawal, and are looking to expand their borders.
•There are a few "orphan" affiliated cards that don't match up with the other HQs, but have alternate ways to enter play. They have been included mostly for storyline conceits, but can unlock the power of some cards included in the v1.1 list.
•Gamma Quadrant missions are available! As a result, Expedient Opportunity has also been included.
•There are less opportunities in the cardpool for combat than for engagements; there is an emphasis on ships and their safety, as the Alpha Quadrant is faced with an overwhelming Dominion invasion force.
•Many staple interrupts have been included: Bridge Officer's Test, Grav-Plating Trap, and Our Death Is Glory to the Founders all make their Excelsior debut.
•Commodities have been introduced along with a few familiar faces to help support this strategy, should you wish to play the more business-minded side of the Dominion.
•A small number of Paranoia and Infiltration cards are included to give Excelsior players a taste of these strategies.
Please include any feedback here: I will review each post here before finalizing the v1.1 cardpool next Monday, April 23rd. Thanks, and I hope you will enjoy the new cardpool as we approach the beginning of Act II.
