Wesley's STCCG card of the day #266

Hi, folks,

with cards really starting to run out there's one request I hear more than any other:


Personnel, Federation, rare
Integrity 8
Cunning 7
Strength 8
SECURITY, Honor, Leadership, Staff Star (+).
"Lieutenant Natasha Yar served as chief of security on the U.S.S. Enterprise. Curageous orphan of Turkana IV. Proved Lt. Commander Data fully functional."

Huh, why I never touched her? She's so similar to her alternate self and those other Federation Security guy (the one with the head) that I never thought her to be of any interest. So I got myself a nasty little idea: How if I put together a COTD by just quoting the relevant paragraphs from the other articles and then putting up a big smile if nobody notices? So I called up the appropriate files and found - err, wait a second, this can't be true - a lot of references. I lengthily explained why the Alternate Tasha is better than the original, I told you about Worf being the worst Security officer ever because he can't defeat Wesley in single-handed combat, but I never said a word about why Tasha (and her kin) are worth including in (or being left out of) a deck. WHOOPS!

But that's the problem with those Security guys! They have little to nothing to offer in the skills department, but everybody needs one in case you run into a Dilemma that requires this clasification. And as there's no equipment that would supply SECURITY, the choice for Feds narrows to Roga Danar, Worf or one of the Tashas. Maybe Jenna D'Sora in case you play a space mission deck and need the rare Stellar Cartography (something for free is always good). It's obvious that Danar is the first choice of these cards as he has several good skills plus he's an ENGINEER (something for free is always good). Don't have a Danar or need a second SECURITY? Choose between Diplomacy or Leadership, which one you need more. If the former, take Worf, if the latter Tasha - the Alternate one, as something for free is alw... - oh darn, I said that before, didn't I?

Okay, the regular Tasha is a good card. In case you need the Honor skill (for Wormhole Negotiations, maybe), don't want to play with AU or plain need a second SECURITY, preferably female, she might even make a deck. But usually she's not great enough to make the cut, unless your card selection is so limited that you don't have access to the excellent cards that ususally preclude the use of a card that's just good.

Favorite combo(s):

- Huh? Am I still online? Combo? Somebody please switch off that connec#*?&$
