Wesley's STCCG card of the day #43

Hi, folks,

really got you yesterday, didn't I? :-) Too bad I don't have another nasty idea, just a nasty dilemma:


Dilemma, Space, uncommon.
5 points.
All ship's crew immediately die from plague unless MEDICAL volunteers to permanently beam over (discarded) to Tarellians. Discard Dilemma.
"Ship containing the survivors of a Tarellian War plague. Infected from biological weapons, they are now refused entry everywhere."
Oops, nice card! You actually get an improved Armus and a weakened Barclay's disease in one card.

The dilemma could also be worded: "Unless MEDICAL present, all of ship's crew are killed. If there are survivors, one MEDICAL (owner's choice) is killed." Of course, this doesn't sound as good, but it shows the two-dilemma nature of this card.

Analysis for the first part:

Analysis for the second part:

Total evaluation: An Armus with a minor chance to get the whole crew. Works best on those Equipment-heavy players, depending on the rules you play by (is there an official ruling on this?) the opponent either loses OFFICER + Medical kit or if this is disallowed, the whole crew. Oops...

Combinations: Would combine quite well with the female-hosers, unfortunately these are all planet stuff. Sets you up quite nicely for a Barclay's disease or a Menthar booby trap, but for nothing else :-(

A definite inclusion in every deck (though I might sideboard it in a tourney, as there are so many planet missions played there)
