Post Chain of Command #13: Lucky Numbers Reversed
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… Danny!

Vote: E (Nice use of the Lursa/B'Etor interplay.)

My Entry:

[S] 2 There Can Be Only One

Dilemma

Choose the corresponding Commander of this ship. Each other corresponding Commander of this ship aboard is stopped. If you stop three or more personnel with this dilemma, all your personnel are stopped and this dilemma returns to its owner's dilemma pile.

“A starship can have but one captain.”

Notes: Not sure I have the wording right, but basically meant to be a bit of a counter for decks running lots of Corresponding Commanders, like U.S.S. Defiant decks and Admirals and Generals Pulling Rank . Made sure to have no random selections so Captain's Log won't help either. :shifty:

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.

[S] 4 Tactical Weakness
Randomly select a personnel to be stopped. Unless you have a Commander aboard his or her corresponding ship with Range, Shields, and Weapons each >6 or Leadership, Officer, Security and Strength>32, randomly select a second personnel to be stopped and your opponent may download an interrupt.

This dilemma is cost -1 for each personnel of a different species this dilemma's owner commands. Unless you stop a Commander or 2 different Officer personnel, place this dilemma in your core. When your personnel complete a mission, this dilemma's owner scores 5 points.

Vote E.

[P] (1) Starfleet Code Section 12, Paragraph 4

Each personnel with a Commander keyword is returned to their owner's hand. For each Personnel returned to hand, randomly select one personnel to be stopped.

"Your place is on the Bridge, Captain."

A bit niche, but can potentially hit an away team hard for the cost.

This is quite clever! I love dilemmas that complement your own decks (Infiltrators in this case).
