Oh WOW!!! I am so excited to see this level of response to my query. I apologize for the late response to all of your helpful comments, but to be honest I am terrible at following threads... (luckily i found the email to retrace me back to my own.
That being said... 1st. THANK YOU ALL SO Much... ahem... thank you all so much for your guidance.
2. A little about me (Suden
) I was young when the game came out so I never got to get a lot of product. I have nothing but fond memories of the game. I do remember getting out around Blaze of Glory because I did not like the battle tactics (I did like them thematically) and I was already confused so of the mechanics. XrayVyper has been my username for everything since at least 1990s. I like the ring to it and it is based on my old job (xray tech) and my favorite car/snake. I dont know how to choose an avatar, but id like the Doctor form Voyager. I live in the capital region of NY. I unfortunately have no live people where I live to play with but revived the love of this game with a friend back in my hometown (we will start playing on Skype whenever he finally makes a deck...) I know there is Lackey which I will definitely try, but i very much prefer live play. I have never played with Borg but was always interested in trying since First Contact came out. My advanced understanding of games in general sparked the interest in finally trying a Borg deck. I am interested in Kazon but don't have much from them. Being a premier player, my soft spot is still Federation.
3. I love the idea of not seeding any
missions strategically, but thematically I like them. I have also never played with a split spaceline (not even
) so that,ll be fun. I have though of what you all said and came up with these 6 missions so far... Seal rift (fo my unicomplex), study protonebula (for my transwarp hub), FGC47, isurrection, Genesis Planet, (both planet assimilation targets), and Cargo Rndezvous. The last one is really only because it is a 35 point Federation planet mission and I don't have anything else that really fits the bill there. I plan on using my Locutus and service the collective to scout and probe on the same turn which is why I chose Federation based missions. Question with that, does Locutus have to be on the away team or just chilling in the cube in orbit for that to work.
4. I understand Reassimilate lost drone only targets former Borg now so i threw it in the Q tent.
5. Q- Tent... I see a lot of decks putting delicious events (lower decks, ocular implants, etc.) in there, but how do you get them out? I understand downloading them but I don't see a lot of cards that download generic events.
6. and final for now, Assimilate starship... how does this card work? I need to get a scout on the ship somehow and then probe? Does the ship need to be empty?
Ill let you all know how the deck comes along. I am so happy I have "met" you all and look forward to communicating with you!!!!!
