Wesley's STCCG card of the day #342

Hi, folks,

let's take a stab at this:


Personnel, non-aligned, rare QC.
Integrity 2
Cunning 4
Strength 11
SECURITY, OFFICER, Treachery, Guaramba, May nullify Nausicaans where present. Command Star (*), AU Icon.
"Nausicaan officer who stabbed young Jean-Luc Picard through the heart in a brawl at Starbase Earhart on 2327. Dom-Jot player."
And yet another dual classification. But this one won't help you much. Yes, SECURITY is okay, but what do you want to do with an OFFICER? Actually, not much. Except that this OFFICER is like a mini-Leadership to avoid the "Worf problem" (the fact that our favorite Klingon won't be able to beat Wesley in hand-to-hand combat). And that leads us directly to Zon's main application area: Away team battles. A Strength of 11 is not bad to start with, he can battle alone and he makes it much harder for your opponent to initiate battle against you so you maintain better control about who gets to battle whom and when.

So where do I put this Nausicaan guy? In a Klingon deck? Nope. Not in a Romulan deck either. Rather, I'll throw that guy into a Federation deck!

You'll ask "Has he gone crazy?"(no) or "Is he drunk today?"(no). I'm sane and sober. The best surprise value is a strong battle hidden component hidden away in an oh-so-peaceful Federation deck. Roga Danar, Zon and two Soong-Type Androids (one each MEDICAL and SCIENCE) mean 43 points of Strength, are useful enough also as Dilemma-solving crew and you'll hit your opponent unprepared. Beyond that, our good Zon is pretty useless. Treachery might in rare cases help if you're playing Fed, but the rest isn't just worth it. A rather average SECURITY with a sometimes deadly weakness in Integrity.
