Okay, gang, you all know that saying the kids have these days: A-VANS!
(Always Vote Against "Non Sequitur".)
While my seeds and Iron Prime's had some remarkable similarities, there are also some stark differences, so now I'm gonna say where I think the canny gambler can beat the power rankings and earn a few slips of latinum:
MOST OVERSEEDED: Nadet/Jamin, Admiral Strickler
MOST UNDERSEEDED: Club Martus, the "Blink of an Eye" planet
RANDOM TRIVIA YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER: The E.C.S. Horizon was Travis Mayweather's family ship, sure... but it was also
likely the ship that brought The Book
to Sigma Iotia II
, so it's arguably the stealth TOS card in this bracket. (And it would be fun to see Design try to do something with that.)
MY PERSONAL PICKS IN EACH BRACKET:
garbage episode, but that is just the coolest special effect, and it was cool even before HD, and the mechanical applications to our game are obvious. I know the actual winner in this bracket is going to be one of the Gatherer cards (and I would be quite happy with a couple of them), but I'm backing my Cinderella Story until it burns out (probably in the first round; I think Chorgan's as good as any #1 seed, so Paralyzing Energy is in serious first-round trouble).
The Dreamer and the Dream
: I don't play 2E, so I don't know what the 2E card called this does and I specifically intend not to find out, but it's an incredible moment from an amazing episode of Trek and I would love to force Design to make it into something amazingly 1E. Maybe something that redefines or reshapes
or something, I dunno, I'm just dreaming...
Voth City Ship
: Purely personal bias here: I pitched a version of this that was a mission which could move like a ship. I'm pretty sure Rules shot down my implementation of it (IRONIC), but I became very attached to the Voth Ship in the process. And, while the episode is pretty good, the ship is the most mechanically
interesting part of it for 1E purposes.
: Ideally, I would have preferred water polo to enter the game through one of Archer's more direct indulgences in the sport, but water polo is as near and dear to ENT fans as earl gray tea is to TNG fans. I'll take this.
...Oh, and, yes, I have updated my bracket on the previous page. It now reflects the official seeds and can therefore be used for the tournament!
