Wesley's STCCG card of the day #37

Hi, folks,

did I hear anybody say common personnel are useless? I'll prove the oppo- site:


Non-aligned personnel, common.
Integrity 2
Cunning 7
Strength 6
SCIENCE, MEDICAL, Navigation, Geology, Command Star (*)
"Representative of female mercenaries operating throughout the Galaxy. Worked with Baran to find the Stone of Gol."
Now that's a card! Medical is the most sought-after classification (Two times as many cards that need it than those who supply it) and Science ranks third on this scale (About a 1-1 ratio). Then you get Command ability, two extra skills, a female (great for Matriarchal society), the ability to use more than one of these at a time, the permission to use her in any deck (non-aligned IS handy) and on top of all this there is above-average STRENGTH and CUNNING. And all this for the price of a single lousy common !

The only drawback is that 2 Integrity, meaning she will get affected by Firestorms, but quite a few decks will be capable of working around this with either Genetronic Replicators(U) or with a two-wave attempt at mission solving.

Don't forget about the various * Scan interrupts and the fact that no space location can hide a Firestorm anyway.

Now what can you use a Vekor for? Just a few examples:

Crystalline Entity(Planet), Tarellian Plague Ship, Gravitic Mine, Cosmic String Fragment, Menthar Booby Trap, Iconian Computer Weapon, Relief Mission. Well, these are only those cards she defeats SINGLE-HANDEDLY. I won't bother listing those she can at least half solve...

For convenience, I just list here all cards that have two different classifications, probably there are more than you think...

Wesley Crusher(R), Data(R), Eric Pressman(U), Bok(U) (OFFICER/ENGINEER) Mirok(U), Dr. Reyga(U) (ENGINEER/SCIENCE), Roga Danar(R) (SECURITY/ENGINEER) and of course Vekor herself.

Favorite combo(s):

That's a list, isn't it? Still looking for a girl or two though. I mean, what can a few screen lines cost?

Tim: Did you rate the wrong card or did you mean what you said?
