Each week I'll post the collector’s information for one of the cards in the set’s card-list.
Contestants are free to create whatever card they see fit for that slot in the card-list, keeping in mind the surrounding cards. As the contest progresses, the card-list will become more and more defined, guiding the contestants’ choices.
The theme of our set is Decipher! You're free to interpret this how you want, but in my mind, I found myself going down one of two rabbitholes, those being...
- the secretive, possibly •Intelligence based path, or
- the keyword path (keyword's being the key to deciphering ciphers)
Each week a poll will go up for the previous week's entries. Simply vote for one you like the most. In the event of a tie, I'll let a random result generator make the decision.
Last week's winner...
Congratulations to Naetor and his Zek, Visionary for becoming the eighteenth card to enter the set.
Last week's entries to pick from for Card #32...
(5) Jem'Hadar Attack Squadron
To play this ship, you must command an Attack Ship. When a damage card is about to be placed on an opponent's ship, choose a personnel at that mission to be killed (two if this mission). You may do this only once each turn.

This week’s contest is...
The first card of the set. As we already have card #2 in place, the dilemma Cascade Failure, this means it has to be:
- a , , or dilemma (before Cascade Failure)
Closing date: Tuesday 25th August(ish - I'll see how the entries come in, and if an extension's required/requested, we'll take it from there).
Note: This'll be a 36 card set.
