According to the Blogger tool I use to upload my posts, we have recently surpassed 1000 posts. Congrats to everyone who has ever posted for making this possible. Here's to the next 1000!
Anyway, to commemorate the occasion, I decided to bust out a find at the old Dollar Tree. Man, if old Me could travel back in time and talk to college freshman Me, I'd first say study harder so I could get a better degree so I can get a better job and so I don't have to work two jobs later in life. I'd then say to not eat so much. I'd then say to not buy so many of these packs because I can get them for a dollar later. Then I'd probably go to the bars. Or something like that. Here's a pack of Star Trek: The Next Generation CCG!
Personnel - Geordi La Forge
Nice pull to get a member of the Bridge crew. Could have been worse, the other pack I picked up had Geordi's dad. Yes, "Chicken" George played Kunte Kinte's dad in the world of Trek.
The remainder of the cards in the pack were always Common cards:
Interrupt - Long Range Scan
Equipment - Tricorder
Personnel - K'Tesh
Interrupt - Escape Pod
Interrupt - Palor Toff - Alien Trader
Interrupt - Loss of Orbital Stability
You could play Interrupts at any time to try to affect the game play. The majority of the pictures were taken from actual Next Generation episodes. The K'Tesh card is from the episode "The Icarus Factor". The character had no name in the episode, but since John Tesh played the character, they named the Klingon after him.
Ship - U.S.S Miranda
Equipment - Engineering Padd
Personnel - Mendon
Dilemma - Anaphasic Organism (Yes, that's J. Peterman's mom)
Interrupt - Particle Fountain
* - What the back of the cards look like
In order for the ship to move, you needed to staff it with personnel. The minimum staffing requirements are represented by the little star logo. Therefore, all you need is Mendon, from "A Matter Of Honor", to properly staff and fly the U.S.S. Miranda. And give Mendon the Engineering Padd and he becomes an Engineer, to help Geordi with the Particle Fountain Interrupt and snag you 5 points when you complete a Mission.
Anyway, that's the pack. I think I have a some of the other Expansion packs lying around, so you all may get to learn more about a game that's no longer around down the road. Good times.
Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading!
