I can't promise doing this every day, but with a new set coming out, and getting a new HQ at it, at least wanted to start one for this.

What do you think of the card? Will you start to use it? Any strategies coming to mind?

I think it will be interesting to see how operating out of the AQ will support Dominion. The bonus is nice, plenty of species to benefit from. Not sure how much it will help your opponent.

I do hope there's some way to get Cardassians (either as resources to use, or as collaborators) on the planet some way.

I get the impression that we're going to be getting some [Dom] Cardassians to go along with it, because it is kinda weird to have Cardassia but no Cardassians.

I really like that both players get the draw for that Dark Federation feel.

So after a quick perusal of existing and hinted 2e Dominion species I found:

Breen
Cardassian
Changeling
Dosi
Ferengi
Human
Jem'Hadar
Karemma
Ochshea
Son'a
Tosk
Vorta

Assuming there's a worthwhile card for each species, the HQ will be triggered up to 12 times over the course of the game, possibly more if I missed any or if they add any surprises. That's actually a lot more than I initially thought!

And if someone dies, or is returned to hand, or is stopped at the time another personnel is played (see Nathan's release article!) - there are possibly even more opportunities.

There's also a Bajoran who can play there.

Good find! But she doesn't trigger the HQ's text.

True. I was thinking of a for-fun-not-winning deck using Bajoran Sector and various ways to bring Feds into Dominion Cardassia Prime. Mostly I figured Captain on the Bridge.

I can imagine giving your opponent a benefit can affect your opinion on this card, but feels you are being overly harsh to just be negative.

Having foothold directly in the AQ might really benefit, and you are the first one to benefit from the draw.
