Post Chain of Command #9: ARC-5555
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… nalan bal!

Not physical damage so much as an emotional bond to the ship. Only the most heartless crew can avoid it, and it makes everyone else more vulnerable to other damage cards.

My Entry:

Unless you choose to stop the corresponding Commander of this ship, randomly select a [Cmd] or Officer personnel to be stopped and place this dilemma in your core. Ships you command without their corresponding Commanders aboard are attributes -1.

[D] (3) Rules of Obedience
The personnel with the highest Integrity or fewest [SD] is stopped. Unless you have Geology and 2 Honor or 2 Security and 2 Treachery or Miles O'Brien, that personnel is killed and this dilemma returns to its owner's dilemma pile.
"Is my Terran friend behaving himself?"
"They all behave themselves when I'm in charge"

Another clean and jerk straight from 1E :shifty: Still, would make a solid 2E dilemma.

Vote B

[D] (2) Temper Tantrum
Each player discards a random card from hand. If the total cost of those cards is odd, return this dilemma to its owner's dilemma pile. If the total cost of those cards is even, your opponent chooses a personnel to be stopped.

I really like the concept, but I think it's got some potential for a big negative play experience, as you could basically strand a lot of people on the ship with no means to get off. I think the card would be more balanced if you have a way to remove it from the ship without having to destroy it and kill everyone on board. Doesn't have to be the normal damage removal, but maybe a heroic sacrifice? Something like "at the end of your turn, you may kill one such personnel aboard this ship to remove this dilemma from the game?" Or "at the beginning of your turn you may kill any number of such personnel with a cost of 4 or more to remove this dilemma from the game?"

Just a thought.

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.

Yeah in hindsight I think you're right. It'd be a bit too complex to include the "kill a personnel" ability, so I've just removed the "can't be removed" ability entirely.

Unless you have a staffed ship at this mission or choose to give command of your ship with no personnel at this mission to your opponent (that opponent chooses an affiliation; that ship becomes that affiliation), all your personnel are stopped.
