I've got my own predictions, but I'll wait and see.

Unless anyone wants recommendations?

I am not claiming any psychic powers here. I took the choice limitations and your selection history into account, and ended up with Adama or Boomer, and I thought that Boomer was the more interesting choice.

Hmm... just how much power does our "mod" actually have? goo

Edit: And the mod denies having psychic powers just before I post my suspicions... The plot thickens! surprise

I´m open for any recommendations!

you guys think:
.we could need another pilot?
.maybe lack some political power?
.chief will need a hand in reparing all that damage?
.or back the team up with some knowledge in military actions?

Of course, in the end.. the decision is up to me

I have only one recommendation: since you will be stuck with the character for 4-6 weeks at least, pick someone whom you think is fun to play. Frankly, for the base game any team of characters can win as humans.

We have:

3 Politics
4 Leadership
3 Tactics
2 Piloting
3 Engineering

Whichever military leader Chris picks, (Helo is unlikely,) we get 2 more Leadership and Tactis guaranteered, so those areas should be covered. Politics is low, and Engineering gets stronger the more of it is in play, so Baltar would be my top pick for you.

Either him, or Apollo. Apollo also covers Politics, and he'd be insurance against losing our only pilot if Boomer goes bad.

Who was your preferred choice?

ignoring the fact that our 4th player has to pic next, my preferrences right now would be:

1) Helo
2) Gaius Baltar
3) Boomer

But you are right with your conclusion that, so far, we are low on politics..

tough decision!

I wouldn't object to any choice at this point. I don't mind giving up the presidency (to Baltar, for example) either.

Boomer's already taken. People usually recommend against taking Helo late in the turn order, but I don't think it matters that much. You just can't be XO'd for a bit longer.

I think everybody will be delighted to hear that Mr Baltar is on board!

edit: oh and for pieters psycho-power skill check: i was tempted to pick helo, but as i´ve never played baltar before (and he seems to be a reasonable choice right now) i changed my mind.

what was your guess?

Yep. Those were my two guesses! I excluded Helo as he was too late in turn order, and Tigh is more interesting than Adama. And for the last player, I considered that being President Baltar can be great fun.

I am going to send out your loyalty cards now, and then I need your initial draws (except Zarek's).

Loyalty cards have been sent out.

For your initial draws, I have the following information:

Zarek - gets a full hand
Boomer - ...
Chief - 1 Politics, 2 Engineering
Tigh - 2 Leadership, 1 Tactics
Baltar - 1 Politics, 1 Leadership, 1 Engineering

Boomer, please give me your initial hand.

Tigh and Baltar were also my two likliest choices.

As for Zarek's upcoming move, go to the press room and XO the president? Otherwise, Tigh or Boomer, if they can scout, or do it yourself, or just draw politics.

XOing the President is a feasible choice. Getting our only pilot into space might be a good idea as well. Ordinarily I don't like giving an XO to the next person in turn, but since it's the first round it should be ok. I also have the option of scouting on my own. Thoughts?

It´s never too early to get a pilot out - those nasty cylon attack cards can show up very quick!

Scouting.. i dunno.. i dont like risking raptors due to a lack of Strategic Plannings

Otherwise, I´m happy to start drawing Q-cards if I´m target of your XO

I can't scout, So XOing me is not the best idea.

Boomer is next, so i think getting the president a nice hand of quorum cards is the best thing we can do right now.

If we decide to go for a scout i can help with the planing.

I was thinking that maybe you (Tigh) could send some Vipers toward the raiders since you're already in command, but if people feel building up the Quorum deck is more important right now, that's fine too.

On second thought, going to the press room might not be of much use. If we want Boomer to pick up some yellows for CP > XO, she'll block you from activating it. However, you could still scout and CP on an XO if you have both kinds of cards.

XO to the president looks like the strongest option right now.

Alrighty then!



My fellow citizens of the 12 colonies, these are dark days for us all. I am sure that our leaders, President Baltar and Admiral Tigh, will do their utmost to see us through, and I am here to make certain that the needs of the "little people" are not forgotten. I, the crew of the "Astral Queen" and the people of Sagittaron stand ready to serve the good of the fleet. I ask that the rest of the Quorum be prepared to follow suit.

Move: Press Room
Action: Play 1 - Executive Order on President Baltar


I still have other options even if someone does block the Press Room, so it should be fine.
