I would like to tell a tale of my team's most recent (and second overall) victory.
Normally, the Computers going offline is bad, and should be fixed asap. However, when the CPU exploded during the drawing of the five initial alerts, showering sparks everywhere, the Counselor realized: the discard pile contained almost all of the engineer cards.
We had a good starting hand, and an Ensign to make tradings much, much faster, utilizing the strategy of summoning everyone into the same room as the ensign. We could win the game without ever fixing the computer core, about halfway into the yellow alerts. We were lucky with the alerts too.
We came up with some amusing narratives, for example, the chief engineer was sitting in their comfy chair the whole time, except for the time when the Ensign pulled her out to the hallway, to protect her from an impending alien attack. Once the soldier took care of the aliens, she got dragged back inside to continue working.
On the turn before the final jump core fix, the Irrational Fear Anomaly came up. However, the Counselor standing behind her whispered: don't worry, all shall be well, and thus, the engine was fixed, and we escaped.
We will remember this one of a kind session fondly .
