Wesley's STCCG card of the day #145

Hi, folks,

my mentor, the Traveler, just told me there's a card really worth reviewing.
I fully agree, BTW...


Personnel, Non-aligned, uncommon, AU.
Integrity 8
Cunning 12
Strength 3
CIVILIAN, Ship he is on can leave one end of spaceline and enter other end. Wesley Crusher attributes + 4, if present. Staff Star (+), AU Icon.
"Male of American Indian descent. Actually the Traveler in disguise. Wesley Crusher left Starfleet Academy to study transcendence of thought with him."
A few of my raters commented "Rather use a Where no one has gone before instead." WHY ? He is a living Where no One has gone before + a Cunning of 12 + he can not be Uxbridged + you get an AU icon for your Future Enterprise + you get a staff star for whatever ship you need one for + you get a 10/13/9 Wesley. Wait - 10/13/9 ? That all ? Why not improve on this with a Humuhumunukunukuapua'a ? 10/17/13 sounds even better! (I just like this combo, having these two solve a Sensitive Search all by themselves!)

Wait, let's slow down a little.
A Non-aligned CIVILIAN with an AU icon. Good for any deck that makes use of the incredibly fast AU ships. And just here the WNOHGB effect kicks in even more nicely! Just have him on a range 13 ship (or 11 or 10, for this purpose) and go pretty everywhere within 1 or 2 turns! Also, he helps flying these ships and reduces your away team size (important for The Higher... the Fewer) when you need to rely on attributes. Another great team: Wesley + Lakanta + Vekor + Alternate Tasha + Major Rakal (Fed Variant): All these five are good by themselves, but add a Future Enterprise and a Kurlan Naiskos and start getting really nasty:

A 39/30/27 ship, with WNOHGB, OFFICER, ENGINEER, SECURITY, CIVILIAN, MEDICAL, VIP, SCIENCE, Computer Skill, Navigation (x2), Geology, Youth, Astrophysics, Honor, Leadership, Diplomacy, Empathy, INTEGRITY 36, CUNNING 45, STRENGTH 40.

For only seven cards you get THE unstoppable ship onto the spaceline! You should rather select your missions for this one.

Favorite combo(s):
