Does using special skill = action mean that Borg Queen can't dl for end of turn draw? OTF limits personnel into play dl anyways.
I would lean towards that being the correct interpretation, due to:
No other actions may take place between start-of-turn or end-of-turn actions, other than valid responses.
The next sentence of the glossary muddies the waters a bit:
However, your normal card draw (or any action that replaces it), is always the last action of your turn.
So I have two questions:
- Is Borg Queen's skill a valid response to the end of turn card draw?
- Must a "replace" action be triggered outside the end of turn phase? (ie, some card like Blood Oath, Fear Will Keep Them in Line or Hirogen Hunt)
My personal opinion is that Borg Queen should not work to replace the end of turn draw, because using her special skill is an action and actions cannot be used during the end of turn phase.
But all that being said, the magic wand of "valid response" is a mess and could very well override this entirely. Because...
unless the action is a valid response (for example, "May replace anyone randomly selected to die here")
This example is clearly something that isn't explicitly 'any time', and yet, it wouldn't work unless it could suspend play to become a valid response.
So, in the end, yeah, the Borg Queen is probably a valid response, and I still think valid response is a mess.
