Post Chain of Command #19: Valentine's
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… CaptMDKirk!

[Evt] 2 •Iconian Gateway
Plays on your incomplete planet mission. Add Archaeology and a Commander to this mission's requirements. While this mission is completed, your personnel on this planet are on all planets.
"I was on the mission that discovered the Iconian homeworld. We were forced to destroy the Gateway we found there rather than let it fall into the hands of the Romulans, and Starfleet Command supported our decision."

Experimenting a little here:

[Kli] [Evt] (2) •naQcha'wIS
may' Duj chaq muv ghol Duj. lang may' pe''egh charghwI' DuqIppu'chugh nuH yoD tlhoS 5.
Heghlu'DI' mobbe'lu'chugh QaQpu' Hegh wanI'

Explanations:
1. First time trying an affiliation icon event. Seems more intuitive then the obligatory "to play this event you must command X [Y] personnel". I suppose the HQ gametext would allow it to "play at this mission".

2. Literal Klingon translation of gametext:
Your opponent's ships may join a battle of ships. The victor of battle scores points between the Weapons and Shields closest to five.

3. CCG translation:
Your opponent's ships may join an engagement. The winner of an engagement scores points equal to the difference between Weapons and Shields calculated, rounded to the nearest multiple of 5.

4. Other translations:
naQcha'wIS = 'Devourer', the strategy of the Klingons in Prelude to Axanar;
Heghlu'DI' mobbe'lu'chugh QaQpu' Hegh wanI' = 'Death is an experience best shared' to fit the theme.

Decay: 3. (When there are three cards on this event, destroy it.) When any player is about to place a Maneuver card in their discard pile, place it on this card instead. Your [TOS] ships are attributes +1 for each card on this event.

[Evt] (3) •Ready Room

Decay: 2 (When there are two or more cards on this event, destroy it). To play this event, you must command a Commander aboard their matching ship. Plays in your core. When any number of your personnel are about to be stopped by a dilemma, place your Commander present with those personnel on this event to prevent that. At the start of your turn, you may discard a random card from hand to place a personnel on this event on their matching ship or your headquarters mission where they could be played.

My Entry:

[Evt] 3 *Chain of Command

Plays in your core. When your [Cmd] personnel is facing a dilemma, he or she may gain a skill from your [Stf] personnel present. This effect lasts until the end of that dilemma. You may do this only once each turn.
Order: Choose your Admiral, General or Legate. He or she gains a skill from your [Cmd] personnel present. This effect lasts until this order is executed again.
“A good officer has to respect the chain of command.”

Notes: So the crew ( [Stf] ) can report information to their superior officers ( [Cmd] ) in a crisis (dilemma,) while he or she can report information to the top brass (Admiral, General, or Legate) who can see the bigger picture (lasts longer,) but can't react so quickly (Order.)

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.
