February 2019: Café des Armours (Link)


THEMATIC CHALLENGE V19 03: THE NEVERENDING STORY
Inspired by the latest release Qpid this month's thematic challenge is all about stories, book, and literature in general. This could be a character from a book which was seen or mentioned on screen like for example Robin Hood from the episode Qpid or Hamlet because Jean-Luc Picard shows and mentions The Globe Illustrated Shakespeare which contains all works. But you do not limit yourself to Human literature, Klingons and Romulans have also some impressive amount of literature. You can find a list of books that were seen on screen on Memory Alpha.
Create a Star Trek CCG card from a piece of literature that was seen or mentioned on screen in any movie or series.


DEADLINE 31st March 2019


Sneak peak for April's challenge: You know nothing!

[Evt] (1) The Never-Ending Sacrifice
To play this event, you must command a [Car] personnel who has Officer or Intelligence. Plays in your core. At the start of your turn, place the top card of your deck under this event. If there are seven cards under this event, destroy it and draw seven cards (your events may play for free this turn).

"There's more to life than duty to the state..."
"When it comes to art you're obviously a prisoner of Federaton dogma and human prejudice!"

[D] Picard and Dathon at El-Adrel {Star Trek: The Next Generation}
In 2368 the Tamarian Dathon sacrified his life to establish first contact with the Federation of Planets. Dathon's sacrifice and Picard's experiences were remembered as a new "word" in the Tamarian language. [Countdown:3]
Opponent may download to this location one Tamarian personnel who joins your mission attempt. Cannot get past unless 3 Diplomacy OR 3 Honor present. If any Tamarian dies at this location, opponent scores points and place dilemma on this mission; it cannot be attempted or scouted. [10]

[Equ] Kiss Me Deadly

Lore: The crime novels of Earth native Mike Spillane appealed to Odo's interest in justice. He was introduced to the stories by Miles O'Brien.

My Entry:
[NA] Michael Williams (Star Trek: TNG)

[Holo] <Fed-Infiltrator> SECURITY

Holographic representation of the Shakespearean character. Soldier under Henry V. Bears a passing resemblance to Jean-Luc Picard, but nobody comments.

[SD] Anthropology [SD] Honour [DL] Earn Your Rank!

Integrity: 7, Cunning: 7, Strength: 7
Notes: For many years I thought this was in fact Picard playing the role in the scene in The Defector... Made the it a little confusing on the rewatch! In fact Patrick Stewart, due to his love of Shakespeare, requested he play one of the holograms as well, and so does double duty here.

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.

Broken link from [NA] Dukat!

[Inc] Kosst Amojan
Plays on your Kai; gains Treachery x2 and [Nem, 1>. All other [Orb] personnel gain <Nem, 1]. If Kai stays on Bajor for two full turns, place all [Orb] cards in play and all Bajoran Wormholes in play into your point area (move ships at Bajoran Wormhole to an adjacent location, or discard if none) (5 points per card).
