Introduction
This is my first attempt at a Revised Deck. I know these can be power heavy deck and can combo out in an overwhelming way. This Deck uses Ref cards to contain and New Bajoran Mechanics to create card and tempo advantage. For whatever reason, I thought I would see 12 Space in revised. After review of the 4 card limit, I realised too late that I would not see that deck. Though it should be fine to play against the Borg, I didn't get that match up. Against AQ Son'a et al. The deck was simply out classed by a better deck design using what I now understand passes as Hexonny in Revised. The sheer speed left me unable to stableize against the deck and my decks dilemmas failed to do anything to stop the completion of missions.

Round 1VidiianJeremy HuthFL (-70)
I would like to start off by saying Jeremy was very kind helping me get over my initial issues with Lackey. As this was my first Lackey Game, Jeremy took the time to walk me through how to play with the interface from start to finish. Not only that he did so over the chat feature as I was unprepared to skype. Thanks again, brother. Against Jeremy's Vidiian, the deck started very late and I was not able to stablize soon enough. While the Defend Homeworld trick worked here and was able to complete the first mission. jeremy was on the board next run and poised to start solving with impunity in the coming turns where I was still short a few personnel to go much beyond the first mission. The deck seemed to want to let the DH trick happened before it took off. I am unfamiliar with the degenerate free-play and draw mechanics out there and that was apparent in the deck's lack of card draw and play consistency. After about two hours (long game was a result of my learning curve and Jeremy's patience...) I had to conceed the game early as I was needed to be a dad. Apologies for not having the opportunity to finish the full game with you Jeremy, I look forward to playing you at a later date.

Round 2HirogenAmber Van BreemenFL (-10)
I want to tank Amber as well for being patient with me and helping me along in this game as well. While I was far more confidant in the set up and execution of the deck, we still had many questions that needed to be resolved. Fortunately Michael was on-hand to provide guidance. Thanks to both of you. Against Amber's Equinox NA I did really well, but I attribute that to better initial draws. Defend Homeworld trick worked here and was able to complete the first mission just after her first mission solve. My Dilemmas prevented her from running away with the game and allowed me to get to the Gamma quadrant to solve Colony Prep to download colony and place a degenerate amount of personnel there to set up the win at the start of my next turn. unfortunately I never saw the start of my next turn. This game came down to the last turn. Had the turn passed, this deck would have won off points from colony.

Round 3RomulanJon CarterFL (-100)View opponent's Report
Jon was a wonderful help playing on Lackey for the third time and was very helpful in elevating my confidence as I was able to set up the seed and play the deck with out much Q and A that marked the first two games. Against Jon's AQ Son'a et al. The deck was simply out classed by a better deck design using what I now understand passes as Hexonny in Revised. My turns were characterized by the old-school play a card draw a card end my turn style of play you all might remember form '94-'96 :P The sheer speed left me unable to stableize against the deck and my decks dilemmas failed to do anything to stop the completion of missions.

Closing Thoughts
I have a far better understanding of both the Lackey interface and revised (first time out for revised as well). While I may not have been a very challenging opponent, but that will change.
