Wesley's STCCG card of the day #220

Hi, folks,

here's something that will make you get big ears:


Personnel, non-aligned, uncommon.
Integrity 6
Cunning 9
Strength 5
SCIENCE, ENGINEER, Stellar Cartography, Astrophysics, Staff Star (+).
"Ferengi male scientist. Inventor of the revolutionary but controversial metaphasic shield technology. Endured scepticism from the scientific community."
Yes, another dual classification. You know how I like them. Also being non-aligned and only uncommon does not hurt either, so he's got the best virtues of a good personnel card.

How good? Well, let's go through. Basic stats are really good (nothing below five and even a little better than Wesley), so definite plus here. His two classifications are also of the better sort. ENGINEER is the all-too-useful skill whenever something goes awry (look at how many missions or Dilemmas require multiple ENGINEERs), plus it helps enhancing shields and is (for those who don't have every card) well-usable with some Equipment cards. And SCIENCE is similar. You need it, especially for Dilemmas, but unless you want to use Metaphasic Shields, you don't ever need multiples of it, so including a SCIENCE just to get that and nothing besides it is usually a bad idea. And this is just the point why I like duals with SCIENCE or SECURITY so much. You don't get much good stuff along with these classifications but you need a few of them anyway for the Dilemmas, so I'd rather get them for free (yeah, the nearly overused Vekor is another one of these).

And the rest? Stellar Cartography and Astrophysics. Hmm. seems like a definite candidate for space missions to me. Almost like Neela Daren. Just maybe even a tiny bit better and definitely more versatile (unless you need a female or want to play that Ressikan Flute). Unlike Neela Daren however, this one will also see some play even in all-planet decks that require some extra Dilemma insurance. One of the cards I always take a look at when deck-building (unless he's way out of theme).

Oh, BTW, several of my raters thought this was a duplicate in my lists, but I checked the website again and didn't see anything (call me Geordi if I really overlooked something ;-) ). Proves again how good this card is...

Favorite combo(s):

- Well, can't think of one right now.
