I think Cottle's OPT also needs clarification regarding moving to Pegasus/Colonial 1, and whether normal ship movement costs are applied.


I would say Galactica only, otherwise you are forcing someone to discard a card when they may not want to.


Or the player that Cottle got out of sickbay gets to pick where to move. So he/she can go to Colonial one/Pegasus but isn't forced to.


I'm okay with this if Safid is, but his call.

Re: BSG V59 - Build Your Own Variant & Gerry Got A Large Straight!
Yes, Doc can only move you to a Galactica (non-Brig) location with his OPT. I really was trying to just base him on Chief and Cally figuring that was a good baseline. His OPT is very Chieflike. His OPG is very Cally-like. His weakness is themey. Let's see how he does!

For line of succession, he's Chief. If it matters, he should be slightly higher on Admiral / CAG (because Doc Cottle is an officer, he's a Major -- this is also why I think his draw should be 2 green 1 purple 2 blue but it's no big deal) and lower on President. But Chief seems as good a place for him as any.

Re: BSG V59 - Build Your Own Variant & Gerry Got A Large Straight!
We can swap out his 1 Politics for 1 Tactics if you want. I liked the Politics and thought it tied in with his involvement in the abortion debate, for example, but I can see Tactics too. I like him having a choice between Leadership and Engineering though, especially since Repairs would be important for him, so he might need more blue. So then he can choose whether to act more like a Major or a Doctor that turn.

Re: BSG V59 - Build Your Own Variant & Gerry Got A Large Straight!
How about 2 leadership, 1 tactics/1 politics, 2 engineering

Not even Chief has 3 blue draws, and repairs show up frequently enough.

Edit: I'm even wondering if the politics is even necessary at all. I can't picture cottle as being a politician in any way whatsoever.

Re: BSG V59 - Build Your Own Variant & Gerry Got A Large Straight!
I'm honestly ok with whatever Cymindy decides re: Doc's draw. I just wanted to try my hand at playing Doc Cottle and mucking around with sickbay.

When I kill save Roslin's life like I did Adama, you'll all be thankful!

Re: BSG V59 - Build Your Own Variant & Gerry Got A Large Straight!
I really hope it will come down to saving rather than killing. Time will tell which one of the two its going to be.

I'm fine with Cottle's skill draws. Everybody has their own views on the show and therefor his skillset will vary depending on what the viewer especially noticed about the character during the show. We'll figure out if its balanced during the game.

Turn 1.1: President Roslin is the Current Player.


President Roslin - your Move and Action when ready!


Please note that Kendra Shaw has moved to Main Batteries. Someone please encounter her soon, so I don't have to keep manually moving her forever. Scratch that! Changed her location in the OO and GIMP was able to do it. WOO!

Cally or Cottle might be decent XO targets, depending on their opening hand. Otherwise I suppose start working on the office...?

My starting draw is absolutely atrocious for doing what Cally wants to do on the first turn. Don't bother XOing me.

Cottle might like an XO if he can fix some Vipers; we probably don't need that many MKVIIs considering we only have one Pilot. Also, we'll be making very liberal use of the Batteries this game, especially after Sleeper. Worth considering.

Based on the amount of blue drawing characters, I think we'll have plenty of oppertunity to repair some vipers. Activate President's Office.

Lets see if the Quorum can provide us with some more helpful options.

Received 2 crisis cards from our mod. Lets see...

Well, this is a tough one. I'll go with "Rescue Mission:", even though I might just have screwed myself over, the other card was worse. Lets hope Cottle isn't a Cylon.

Re: BSG V59 - Build Your Own Variant & Gerry Got A Large Straight!


I'm willing to head to Sickbay, fuel is pretty precious and its a good oppertunity for Cottle to prove himself. Even if I get executed, I think it would be a good trade for that bit of knowledge about Cottle.

Re: BSG V59 - Build Your Own Variant & Gerry Got A Large Straight!


Roslin is sent to Sickbay where she immediately draws the trauma token which is a Disaster. She is executed, and I will rule that Cottle could not OPG to save her, since she is already in Sickbay.


Roslin reveals You Are Not A Cylon.

Morale drops to 8.

Roslin discards:
2 - Consolidate Power
0 - Red Tape
3 - Investigative Committee
4 - At Any Cost
1 - Executive Order
1 - Broadcast Location - > Destiny

Sorry Gridash. Please pick a new character.

Although, there is nothing in his OPG that states that the character in question has to be in Sickbay, more like that his ability can be used IF the character is executed.

I'm talking about the OPG, not the OPT.

But the OPG says if a character is executed, instead you could send them to Sickbay. But since you are already there, you can't be sent there. That's where I am approaching it from.
