Welcome to Fill in the Blank Season 3: Decipher!

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 rabbit holes, those being...
  • the secretive, possibly Intelligence based path, or
  • the keyword path (keyword's being the key to deciphering ciphers)
Not every card has to fit the theme, of course, but it’s something to keep in mind when coming up with entries.

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 MattgomeryScott and his Unwanted "Upgrade" for becoming the twenty third card to enter the set.


Last week's entries to pick from for Card #...
[P] •Qo'noS, Klingon Civil War
[AQ] 50
2 Intelligence, 2 Security, 3 Treachery, and (Cunning >48 or Strength >48)
While you command either Founders' Homeworld or Romulus and no other headquarters missions, you may play Treachery Klingons, equipment, and [Kli] ships at this mission. You may attempt and complete this mission using your [Fed] personnel with these requirements: Astrometrics, Diplomacy, 2 Honour, Leadership, Navigation, Security, and Integrity >48.
"Captain, you and I know that they have conspired with Romulans in the past. If they should be the victors in this war, they will surely form a new Klingon/Romulan alliance. That would represent a fundamental shift of power in this quadrant."
[Dom] [Kli] [Rom]
Span 2
[P] *Q-Continuum Civil War, Embrace Freedom

[QQ] 30 points

Astrometrics, Biology, Diplomacy, Exobiology, and Integrity > 32

Q. Temporal. When you complete this mission, flip it over.

"It's terrible, isn't it? But it's also a wonderful opportunity"

Any affiliation may attempt.

Span: 3.
Other side:
[P] *Q-Continuum Civil War, Restore Status Quo

[QQ] 0 points

Archaeology, Law, Security, and Strength > 30

Q. Temporal. At the start of each opponent's turn, if their personnel on this planet have this mission's printed requirements, flip this mission. Otherwise your Q events and interrupts cannot be destroyed or prevented by non-Q cards and your Q personnel cannot be stopped or killed by non-Q dilemmas.

No personnel may attempt this mission.

Span: 3.


Notes:

Thought it would be fun to use the Temporal mission format to create a double sided mission of the Q Civil War from the Voyager Episode “The Q and the Grey.” If you embrace freedom you get to use some of the Q's powers, but your opponent can always come along and restore the status quo. As an extradimensional space the Q-Continuum also gets its own Quadrant.
[P] •Orellius, Escape "Paradise"
[AQ] (35)
Engineer, Honor, Officer, Programming, and (Integrity>28 or Cunning>30)
Equipment on this mission loses its gametext. If this mission is incomplete, unless a player commands a staffed ship here, their personnel may not beam from this planet.
"Welcome to our community."
[Fed]
(2)
[P] •Risa, Search for Tox Uthat
[AQ] [30 pts]
Archaeology, Intelligence, Leadership, and Cunning >32 or Anthropology, Security, a Thief, and Strength >32
Region: Sector 001. When this mission is completed, Artifacts you play are cost -1.
"Well, let's just say I've heard rumours that the Uthat is located somewhere on Risa. "
[Fed] [NA]
Span 2



This week’s contest is...

Card #31!

Card #30 is the [Rom] affiliated personnel, Shinzon, New Power Rising, while Card #32 is [Baj] affiliated ship, Resistance Raider, so to fill the hole, we're looking for a:
  • a [Rom] personnel (after Shinzon, New Power Rising
  • a [SF] personnel
  • a [Baj] ship (before Resistance Raider)
Closing date: The weekend of the 17th/18th September(ish - the admin on this is shocking, especially after I managed to break last week's page somehow and give it a "Fatal Error").

Good luck!

Note: This'll be a 36 card set.

Apologies to Matt. I'll get that updated. In my defence, I was doing it at speed, from partial memory, and it was an educated guess - you're normally the first to submit an entry ;)

No worries, these things happen. Unfortunately with the change of forum I'm coming here a lot less now, so "he who enters first" may not be such a good measure of whose entry it is.

Speaking of entries, here's mine for this time:

[SF] 0 *Porthos, Archer's Pal

[Pa] Dog

Animal. (This personnel cannot gain skills or use equipment.)

While this personnel is present with your [SF] Commander, both are attributes +1 (limit +1)
When your [SF] Commander present is about to be killed by a dilemma, you may stop this personnel to stop him or her instead.

“Going where no dog has gone before.”

Integrity: 4, Cunning: 3, Strength: 3

Notes:

Figured I'd add the one major crew member from Enterprise missing from 2E... Porthos! My general idea for animals is that they're cheap personnel with no staffing, low attributes and no/few skills, but who can boost other cards in some way. They also can't use equipment (no hands) or gain skills (because you can't teach an old dog new tricks... ;-) )

Speaking of animals, here are a couple more.

Bonus:

[Fed] 0 *Spot, True and Valued Friend

[TNG] Cat

Animal. (This personnel cannot gain skills or use equipment.)

Order: Stop this personnel to unstop your Android present.
When this personnel is about to be killed, return her to her owner's hand.

"Felis catus is your taxonomic nomenclature,
An endothermic quadruped, carnivorous by nature."


Integrity: 2, Cunning: 4, Strength: 4

*

[Fed] 0 *Livingston, I Presume

[TNG] Lionfish

Animal. (This personnel cannot gain skills or use equipment.)

To play this personnel you must command a [TNG] ship. Plays on your [TNG] ship.
Order: If this personnel is aboard your [TNG] ship, stop this personnel and that ships corresponding Commander present to download an interrupt.

"'The anomaly… my ship… my crew… I suppose you're worried about your fish, too.

Integrity: 3, Cunning: 2, Strength: 1

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.

[SF](3) •Maxwell Forrest, NX Project Co-ordinator
[Cmd] [Pa] Human
Anthropology, Diplomacy, Honor, Leadership, Officer, Navigation
Admiral. At the start of your turn you may choose a [SF] Leadership personnel present to become the commander of a [SF] ship at this mission. This effect lasts until you choose again.
"It wasn't an easy decision. You'll be backup."
