Welcome to the seventh season of the monthly Thematic Challenges! For those who are new to this, this challenge was started in 2011 by MattgomeryScott and was rebooted by me in 2019. Every month I will announce a topic or theme and everyone may create a dream card during that month and post it in the month's thread. Voting will be done during the next month. Everyone is invited to join and we appreciate every single submission. At the end of the year, there will be a little bit more demanding challenge and we will announce the overall winner of the season.
This season I would like to give polls a try to vote for the entries. I hope we will get some more votes and overall participation as everyone is welcome to vote for one of previous month's entries.
And as always, feel free to contact me as I am always looking for feedback and ways to improve this.
These are the entries from last month's challenge.
To play this event, you must command three Drones. Plays in your core. Your Interlink personnel gain Telepathy and are Integrity +1.
"The processing device at the core of every Borg vessel. It interconnects the minds of all the drones. It purges individual thoughts and disseminates information relevant to the Collective."
Basic Security Training
Most security training involve basic training to improvise, adapt and overcome unforseen challenges after encounter during away team mission on unexplored planets.
Plays on table. When your non- SECURITY that have two or less skills attempt a mission alone, you may re-select one of their skills everytime before you encounter a previously unencountered dilemma. Discard event if you scored points this turn. (Unique. Captain's Order.)
(2) •Archer's Philosophy
Plays in your core. For every multiple of 10 your opponent's score is greater than yours, you may spend one additional counter each turn.
"You always thought you could win. No matter how far behind you were."
"As soon as you give up, the game's lost."
Auxiliary Power to Weapons
When an engagement begins, place this on your ship involved.
Order- Place this on your Defiant-class ship.
Damage- Personnel that cost 4 or more here are attributes +1. This ship is Weapons +2 and Shields -2.
"We're going to fight our way out of this."
(2) Romulan Mentality
Randomly select three personnel. Unless one of those personnel has Integrity <5, all three are stopped.
"Paranoia is a way of life for you, isn't it?"
Tough Little Ship
Proving that size isn't everything, Worf commanded the U.S.S. Defiant against the Borg during the Battle of 001. It ended up adrift, but salvageable.
Plays on your Defiant-class ship, scout ship, shuttle, or ship with no staffing requirements. It is SHIELDS +2. Once per game you may download a matching commander aboard. You may discard this event to prevent damage that would destroy this ship.
After being shrunk to a fraction of their original size, Julian Bashir and Miles O'Brian had to disable a security circuit on the commandeered Defiant's bridge.
Place on ship; has no RANGE. Cure with Biology, Engineer, Computer Skill, and Transporter Skill (personnel stopped when cured). If countdown expires, ship destroyed.
