Wesley's STCCG card of the day #147

Hi, folks,

if you wondered where... Well, I recently played a game of STCCG with Santa and he grinningly pulled a Seize Wesley card and so I got stuck near the North Pole...
At least my brain didn't totally freeze, so I can review...


Personnel, Federation / Romulan, rare AU.
Integrity 8/4
Cunning 7/8
Strength 4
VIP, Empathy, Diplomacy (Fed only), Tal Shiar (Rom only), Treachery (Rom only), Command Star, AU icon.
"Physically altered, Deanna Troi was coerced to completely assume the identity of a Tal Shiar major in the 2369 M'ret defection plot."
Great concept (tho they weren't the first with that idea but mine worked somewhat differently) and too bad they missed out on a bunch of other opportunities in the basic set (K'Eleyhr, the Duras conspiracy, maybe even Worf).

What do you get for this card ? A Deanna Troi. A full Deanna for all those who couldn't afford one till now. Just that she's a VIP instead of an Officer.

More ? Yep. The ability to sneak into an opponent's Rommie mission with a Fed deck. Just load up with non-aligned crew!

Still more ? Yep. The confidence to gain 40 really easy points out of a Rommie mission. Mind you, you can really redshirt anything that gets in your way. Just keep Rakal up there until the last possible second...

Also, one of the better Empathy cards. Especially for our green friends who totally lacked that skill until now. And this one is badly necessary with the new Dilemmas and Events...

Even more ? Sure. Finally a picture where Marina Sirtis looks good. Net result: A Deanna Troi actually worth using. And a perfect upgrade of the original one. Even for a pure Fed deck...
