Post Thematic Challenge VI 06: The Final Frontier
Thanks everyone who participated in last month's challenge. I really enjoy running this challenges and I do hope you feel the same way.

And special congratulations to Armus who managed with one single entry to get six votes (two votes outstanding) and got boosted to first place shared with commdecker. If you do have any comments please do not hesitate to contact me via a forum message. And now short story long the entries from last month.

Seeds or plays on table. Holds one personnel. Once each turn in place of your normal card play you may put a personnel card here. All your Captains in play share all regular skills from all personnel here. You may play personnel from here as if from hand. (Unique. Captain's Order).

Vote: A

My Entry:

[Kli] 3 *Vixis, Talented Huntress

[Cmd] [Pa] Klingon

Anthropology, Engineer, Officer, Programming, Treachery,

When an opponent plays an interrupt during a mission attempt, you may lose 5 points to prevent that interrupt and place it in its owner's discard pile. You may do this only once each turn.

“Enterprise, this is Starfleet Command. We read you. Over.”

Integrity: 4, Cunning: 6, Strength: 7

Notes:

Klaa's statuesque first officer (who has “wonderful muscles,” according to Chekov.) She was able to intercept Kirk's distress signal so I tried to represent that with her special ability to intercept your opponent's interrupts.

For skills I've largely based them off her 1E card, with Officer, Engineer and Programming, though dropped the Astrometrics as Klaa already has it. Added Treachery, as I figure while she was loyal to Klaa, she wasn't about some duplicity. And as she also spoke flawless English while impersonating Starfleet Command, I've taken a leaf out of Hoshi and Uhura's books and given her Anthropology, which is about the closest STCCG has to linguistics. Plus the Treachery Klingons are rather short of it, with only Arne Darvin and the non-unique Filuz.

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.
