Wesley's STCCG card of the day #167

Hi, folks,

business called again, so I had again to resort to using a minion :-) to make sure you get this:


Personnel, Romulan, rare AU.
Integrity 7
Cunning 7
Strength 9
OFFICER, Diplomacy, Leadership, Command Star (*), AU Icon.
"In alternate timeline, the nemesis of the U.S.S. Enterprise confronted Captain Picard but cooperated to investigate an anomaly in the Neutral Zone."
Ahem. Er, this card was a request for review. I normally wouldn't have done it, but what don't you do to keep the people happy...

Let's compare him to the original Tomalak. He was OFFICER, Diplomacy, Leadership, Cunning 7, Strength 9, Command Star and - SURPRISE! - Integrity 6. Whoops. 1 point of Integrity and the "multiland" effect ? And they created a RARE for this ?

Well, the reason behind this: They urgently needed an AU Romulan. Look through the cards - there is none. Except the two dual affiliation pals, but they obviously wanted at least *one* pure Rommie in there. And the selection was not that great - the show does not help us out very much.

But they could have given him one of the Science-related skills (Astrophysics or Stellar Cartography) and the card would have been at least different enough to stand its own.

Oh, and what I said about the original once in the context of one of the older COTD's still holds true: Why use a Tomalak if I can have a Tebok or an Evek?
