Battlestar Galactica XX: The Super Crisis Shuffle


#368

Yes, because he’s a pilot, doesn’t need to be CAG.
I wonder if there’s a point to flying without being a pilot.


#369

If I can amend my move, I’ll launch in 4 in a Viper, then launch a scout. I’ve been stuck in the red tape so long, I’ve almost forgotten how do this Viper thing.


#370

@CraigM: have we missed a hit on Pegasus?


#371

Yeah, I forgot to mention it was the airlock. Which otherwise had no impact. Sorry, was rushing out the door.

You do that successfully.

Your scout, less so. Roll 2.


#372

Booooooooo, will play Eng 4 C on the roll so it succeeds.


#373

Well done, intentionally or not!


#374

Very well, sent.

Quorum%20in%20Uproar

While @rowe33 ponders the scout, @rho21 can start us on the crisis.


#376

Or can’t really. I hold nothing that can help us here. 0 cards

Destiny’s looking pretty bad for this one. Should we be tanking it? @Perky_Goth will have a better idea, and needs to act next anyway.


#377

It’s one action (2 quorum cards) and 2 cards so maybe we can tank it.

Won’t mind the president taking this up though


#378

@CraigM Toss that destination please.

I would think tanking is ok here.


#379

I should have an idea, shouldn’t I? I have a couple of interesting cards, but I’d have to play some. The quorum is nice, but not a priority.
If noone wants to use their cards, I suppose I should lose them. Rowe has an idea of the Quorum. I’ll just wait a few minutes to see.


#380

I see. Take them away, @CraigM


#381

Destiny is neutral on the issue. Whatever discontent was present earlier has simmered down.

Still, the President’s standing was diminished.

Skill cards
Tactics 3SP
+3
Leadership 3DE

total 0, fail.

@Perky_Goth discards Quorum cards

and skill cards
Politics 4IC
Engineering 3SR

Basestar placed in… area 4.

Pursuit track +1

@rho21 select location for the civilian ship.


#382

Zone 3 please.


#383

@rho21 you’ve got the stick.

Anyone wanna take bets on what Rho does? No?


#384

Well I’ll definitely start in a traditional fashion by staying in sector 2, launching an unmanned viper in sector 3 and getting it to escort the new civilian ship to safety.

Next up, what do people think about trusting Madam President? I can ask her to leave sick bay (but then have two actions in a row) or stick to a safer action.


#385

I’d already moved the pieces ;)

Stinger is so good, I can’t wait until the sleeper phase* and you all distrust each other again.

*assuming both Cylons aren’t in play now.


#386

Shh, you’re giving away my non-Cylon nature.


#387

I am not terribly against it. We have a clean board at this moment so if she f’s off to toaster-ville this turn she can’t do super drastic damage against us here and we’d know a cylon so that’s probably a fair trade for humanity.
