Wesley's STCCG card of the day #28
today's card is the first of a series of 5 non-personnel cards which IMHO
make for much more interesting reviews than yet another nice guy...:
Regenerates a card. Exchange this event for any one card from your discard
"Q once saved Captain Jean-Luc Picard's life following an injury from a
compressed Tetryon beam"
This card seems very similar to the already reviewed Palor Toff. However
it has one distinct advantage and one not so obvious disadvantage.
On the one hand it can resurrect personnel, too, but ont the downside this
card is one turn slower than Palor Toff and less useful in emergencies.
So most players reserve this card for resurrecting their personnel and
rely much more on Palor's.
There is also a much more subtle advantage to this card which is actually
a psychological one. When you need to be absolutely sure to resurrect some
card, you can count on your opponent not wasting a Kevin Uxbridge(U) on
your Res-Q (she thinks "Oh, just some personnel"), but many smart players use
Amanda Rogers(U) on Palor Toff thereby effectively getting two storng
cards out of their way.
- This card works very well in conjunction with Palor Toff(C). I stack lots
of Palors and just one or two Res-Q's. When I then need a personnel I use
Palor on Res-Q, when I need something else I saved myself a turn...
- The above-mentioned bluff. The resurrected card will most probably be some
nasty interrupt then...
