Post Chain of Command #8: Born in the Summer of His 27th Year
Welcome to Fill in the Blank Season 2: Chain of Command!

Each week I will post the collector’s information for one of the cards in the set’s cardlist. Contestants are free to create whatever card they see fit for that slot in the cardlist, keeping in mind the surrounding cards. As the contest progresses, the cardlist will become more and more defined, guiding the contests’ choices.

The theme of our set is Chain of Command. Not every card has to fit the theme, of course, but it’s something to keep in mind when voting. Speaking of voting, as per normal each contestant will vote for one of the previous week’s entries (with the exception that as the contest runner, I will vote ONLY in the case of a tie).

This week’s winner is… MattgomeryScott!

Here are this week’s entries:

Entry A wrote:
[Evt] 1 •Kobayashi Maru
Holoprogram. Plays in your core. Whenever you fail a mission attempt, you may place the top card of your deck on this event.
While there are three or more cards on this event, your personnel with no staffing icons gain [Stf], your [Stf] personnel are attributes +1, and your [Cmd] personnel are the corresponding Commanders of the ship they are aboard.
"How we face death is at least as important as how we face life."


Entry Bl wrote:
[Evt] 1 • Captain Picard Day
To play this event, you must command three [TNG] personnel. Plays in your core.
At the start of each player's turn, if that player commands a ship with its matching
commander aboard, he or she may draw a card.
"Oh uh... Yes it's a... it's for the children. I'm a... I'm a role model."
"I'm sure you are. Starfleet out.
"


Entry C wrote:
[Int] Captain's Prerogative
Image
When your personnel is facing a dilemma, if your opponent has more points than you, place the top card of your dilemma pile beneath your opponent's incomplete non-headquarters mission to unstop your stopped Commander at that mission (he or she joins the mission attempt).
"I thought you were heading for the launcher."
"I changed my mind."


Entry D wrote:
[Evt] (3) Pattern Shinzon Theta
Maneuver. Pursuit.
Order -
Begin an engagement involving your [Rom] ship with 4 or more staffing icons. If you win, unstop that ship, restore its range, and place this on an opponent's ship involved. Otherwise, destroy this event.
Damage - At the start of your turn kill your lowest cost personnel at this mission. If that personnel costs 1 or less, kill your highest.
"Too slow, old man."


Entry E wrote:
[Evt] 2 *Outpost

Plays on your non-Headquarters mission. When you play a personnel at your Headquarters Mission, if he or she costs less than the total number of dilemmas beneath this mission, you may place him or her on this planet (if [P] ) or aboard your ship at this mission (if [S] .)

“Many starfaring races establish outposts across their territory.”


Entry F wrote:
[S] •Calder II, Raid Ancient Burial Site
[AQ] (30)
Archaeology, Security, Transporters, Treachery, Cunning>34, and 3 Smugglers and/or Thieves
When you complete this mission, you may download two Artifact equipment. Place one in your discard pile and the other aboard your ship at this mission.
"Lock coordinates and start bringing them up."
Any affiliation (except [Bor] ) may attempt this mission.
2


Entry G wrote:
[Int] Article 14, Section 31
Interrupt
While your personnel are facing a dilemma, choose one: one of your [Fed] or [SF] Intelligence personnel gains Treachery; or one of your [Fed] or [SF] Treachery personnel gains Intelligence. This effect lasts until the end of the mission attempt.
"There are a few lines that make allowances for bending the rules during times of extraordinary threat."


Please remember to vote for one of these entries in your post, referencing the entry’s letter.



This week’s contest is...

Card #32! This card must come between Edward Jellico(Personnel - Federation - Card #27) and Enterprise, Trailblazer (Ship - Starfleet- Card #26). Given the nature of the set, a ship is not out of the question.

Gotta say, notably strong and diverse week. I'm kinda hoping a few of them that don't get picked get recycled/reused/revised for future entries.

While your Borg Queen is aboard this ship, she is aboard all of your ships and is the corresponding commander of each of those ships. Whenever an engagement begins involving one of your ships, if this ship is staffed it may join that engagement (move this ship to that mission, no range is required or used).

Vote: B

My Entry:

[SF] 3 *Jonathan Archer, Trailblazing Captain

[Cmd] [Pa] Human

Astrometrics, Anthropology, Diplomacy, Engineer, 2 Leadership, Officer

Commander: Enterprise
While this personnel is attempting a mission, if no missions of the same mission type have been completed, he cannot be stopped or killed by dilemmas.

"You can't be afraid of the wind."

Integrity: 6, Cunning: 6, Strength: 6

Notes: A Captain to go with my ship which is already in the set. He's at his best when he's going where no one has gone before... this game. And interacts nicely with Earth, Humanity's Home I think. Also thinking of making a whole team of "Trailblazing" Enterprise Main Characters, as I've had a few ideas for the rest. :D

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.

This time it was a baseball game. Maybe I should make Wednesday standard?

I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say that we don't mind, whatever fits your schedule. A week is a very generous amount of time to draft a card so +/- a day every now and then shouldn't make a difference. I imagine it's a bit of a pain having to organise these posts on your part, so no complaints from us!
