Wesley's STCCG card of the day #39

Hi, folks,

let's get finished with that #*?&$ bridge crew stuff:


Federation personnel, rare
Integrity 8
Cunning 7
Strength 4
OFFICER, Empathy, Diplomacy, Command Star (*).
"Lt. Commander Deanna Troi is a 1/2 Betazoid, 1/2 human empath. Counselor for U.S.S. Enterprise. Imzadi to William T. Riker. Loves Chocolate."
So that's all? Hey, everybody has more OFFICERS than needed, there are cards with Diplomacy that are actually useful and Empathy, well who ever plays with Empathy??? Then you get a few attribute points and that's it. Not even half worth the money you pay for it.

So, instead of all those combos and playing tips I usually start giving out here, let's hear the voices of my co-gods (raters) on this card (in no specific order):

"Don't have."
                        Says everything, doesn't it?
"Nice to look at, but not terribly useful."
                        I totally agree with the second part :-)
"Well apart from her good looks, not a very useful card"
                        Are we getting repetitive?
"However, would you play a complete Bridge crew deck without her?"
                        Yeah, for a Bragging deck...
"I don't do much with empaths"
                        Wise decision.
"Two-dimensional creatures disable them for the rest of the game."
                        Right that is.
"Her mom is better for empathy."
                        And the card pictures Majel Barret. Definite plus.
"... and so is Devinoni Ral because he has an extra skill."
                        and he's non-aligned and he's uncommon...
"Empathy doesn't do much"
                        Have we heard this before?
"Don't have her, sorry."
                        TWO who don't have her. Traded her away?
"Command ability helps..."
                        Yes, there are only 20 Feds who have it...
"...but you don't need an extra Diplomacy with people like Picard around."
                        At last - one GOOD card named in this post :-)
                        OK, some people go by the 'If you can't say anything
                        nice, you should not say anything at all' saying...

BTW: I've included ALL comments, so this is no biased selection!

Flames particularly welcome. Wearing fireproof vest.
