Thanks for the feedback!
Regarding Ja'rod, I only write the gameplay-relevant lore. I'm not too concerned with how he compares with the existing Ja'rod
because this Ja'rod is more of a Romulan card than a Klingon card. He needs to be able to go into Romulan decks so he can help them blow up Klingon stuff, so if I had to choose one affiliation for him, that's the one. On the other hand, I do like him as a Klingon, too, because I like the idea of a Klingon mirror match turning into a blood bath.
I definitely want the Issue Secret Orders
download on Picard Impersonator. Infiltration is a fundamentally situational mechanic, which is is why I think most infiltrators need to be self-sufficient. Also, the strongest effects should go on the more easily exposed infiltrators. The real Picard goes in TNG, Ent-E, and possibly one day DS9 decks. Though the telepathic alien and Krajensky Founder had very different motives, they both issued orders (secretly) that sent ships off on dangerous missions.
The flip side of that is that infiltrators still need to be useful in matchups where they can't infiltrate, and you're absolutely right that Selok and Lore fall short in that regard. For some reason I was following the Founder convention with Selok (skills of who they are pretending to be + Treachery), and with Lore for some reason I wanted to avoid a one-line lore box even though that's exactly what the original Lore
had. So those need to go back into the shop. (I also forgot that Selok was universal.)
Data is the card I'm least satisfied with here. My thinking was that Data wasn't posing as a Romulan (well, not this time), but he was posing as B-4, and I was assuming that B-4 would continue to be Non-aligned. This Data can infiltrate the "android affiliation." It's a nice coincidence that Romulans use Cybernetics Expertise a lot. There's still the question of what he gains by infiltrating, and I think the Vulcan Nerve Pinch
download was thrown in there as a way to do something
. (He did that in the movie, right? I don't remember it very well.) Otherwise we're counting on a deck with BOTH capture and androids, and that seems like a bad plan. Or maybe this just needs to be a decent, free-playable Data who will only infiltrate once in a blue moon.
Homefront II Evek was Harsh Interrogator
. This one is Attache to the Demilitarized Zone
Cardassian Judiciary could get the download but I think that would push it to 4 lines of text unless I got rid of the free play.
