Wesley's STCCG card of the day #389

Hi, folks,

Wesley gets the point...

...ed ears ;-)


Personnel, Federation, rare, FA / VOY
Integrity 6
Cunning 8
Strength 7
SCIENCE, Astrophysics, Mindmeld, Youth, Once per game, may cancel a battle at same Nebula. Staff Star, AU Icon, TOS icon.
"29-year-old Vulcan of first deep space assignment aboard Captain Sulu's U.S.S. Excelsior in 2293. Joined Starfleet under pressure from his parents."
Hmmm, Astrophysics and Youth, eh? And Integrity 6, Cunning 8 and a Staff Star to boot... Wonder where I've seen this before ;-) Which leads me to a decent use for our Tuvok: Use him as a Wesley replacement in a Cryosatellite. Together with Rachel Garrett, Tuvok is everything you need to gain 60 points, as Rachel can solve Restore Errant Moon and Tuvok can solve Plasma Streamer. Do I hear a cry for a Cry-osatellite under Wormhole Negotiations? Concentrate your deck on Dilemma-solvers and Diplomats and then use Tuvok and Rachel to finish it. Easy enough. And Revolving-Door-proof.

What else? SCIENCE? Actually, if I want him for his SCIENCE, I usually have better choices, skill-wise. Dr. Reyga, Vekor and Neela Daren are all truly decent Scientists. But better than OFFICER at least and also again provides for a Wesley alternative in case you need Youth along with your Astrophysics and already have abundant ENGINEERs.

Mindmeld? Ho-hum. Maybe useful with Wormhole Negotiations or some other mission that has a high multiplier after a requirement. That is if you can pull that Vulcan Mindmeld card.

And his special ability is a small defense bonus. Not that too many people would play with one of the Nebula missions or the common Nebula card. And not that canceling one battle per game would be the power you absolutely need (if you do, try Guilty-Provisionally). But it does more than a blank line. However it also provides that extra dot for the Bailiff. Oh well, maybe once before 2000 I will actually pull it off. That is if I even use the card before 2000 ;-)
