Taking a cue from adorablerocket, I thought I'd start another thread of custom cards...

I am interested in making cards that fit one or more of these criteria:

1) Most likely won't see official version
2) Has some sort of meta-game impact
3) Pokes fun at Star Trek franchise and/or Attack Wing
4) Actually somewhat playable

The idea is to throw these into a casual game, or maybe with a new player to add a little fun.

With that, here's a couple I've done:






Yes, he really is that annoying...



Remember that time one Voyager lost their Harry and then the other Voyager gave that Voyager their Harry? Yeah, like that....


For reference:





Soon to come:

Holodeck
Alternate Reality
Picard Manuever
Prepare for Impact
Keiko O'Brien

Please feel free to add your own!

I didn't think you would be able to top the face palm one then I saw Q and was proven wrong.

Well done so far!

I love the Q card, but the way his rule is written I think it'd be funnier to make his skill ZERO! :-)

I'm working in Paint.NET so I'm not sure I can save the layers as a psd or not... I'll try to clean it up and get a template out there.

That's what I use to make microbadges. It shouldn't be any trouble to isolate some layers.

I had been using a free font called "Agency FB"...but I think I just found a better one called "Antonio". I am somewhat font challenged so if someone knows a better one...I'd love to know.

PS, just added Mind Meld.

I am fairly certain the font used for the special card text is Alternate Gothic No.2 BT:

http://www.identifont.com/find?font=alternate+gothic+&q=Go

http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/alternate-gothic/no-2...


whereas the font for card title/cost/range/etc is Swiss 911 Ultra Compressed BT, in all caps:

http://www.fontyukle.net/en/Swiss+911+Ultra+Compressed.ttf

http://www.freefontsdb.com/detail/2284/Swiss-911-Ultra-Compr...

(the latter being the LCARS font.)

I was able to get a free version of wiss 911 Ultra Compressed BT ...

But Alternate Gothic No.2 BT looks to cost money... any suggested free alternative?

I need a Facepalm card so very badly...

Treknobabble is fantastic!

I love all of them actually, but those two i NEED!

Also, Riker Maneuver is great! The ability is good, but, the picture is what makes it worth every SP.laugh

For those who may be unaware...

Just curious - isn't the second half of the card text on 'REPLICATOR' superfluous?

I thought that was a standard rule of the game.

We have a Riker captain but no Riker Crew. So:



And some fun cards:

Face Palm is still my favorite - and I hope they give that as a OP prize one of these months

Figured I may as well toss these cards here:

Useful for those that want a card for the OWP



This one was made in response to something said in a thread on TOS ship thread. Not really meant to be totally serious


And had made these for cloaked mines - from the mine template (meant to be done in 300 DPI).




Of course, we shouldn't forget the ultimate multi-purpose "how are we going to get ourselves out of the corner we painted ourselves into" item:

This came about after a discussion with a co-worker. Basically, it allows a captain to convert an Elite Talent to an Extra Crew Member.



Made it an Independent, as I imagine it would apply to any faction, and basically adds +3 to the cost of a crew member. Though it might be better to knock this down to a cost of 1, so with a cross faction purchase it would be +2 for a crew member.

No reason this same principle couldn't be used for other upgrades as well. Convert the Elite to represent "Special Payload" for a Weapon or "Refit" for Tech upgrade. Though I would picture those as more expensive - as they could give an even more decided advantage to a ship (such as allowing a ship that normally has no Tech slot one).

Edit:

Combined the two ideas into just 1 Refit card:

Very nice. We've thought of this many times when trying to squeeze together just the right build. Well executed.

For the record, I do remember a post from Andrew saying there would be an official card soon that allows a tech slot to be added to a ship....so once that comes out we'll see how refit "fits" in.

Thanks - was inspired by your work (and the others) above I think the longest part was finding something appropriate for the card art on the Auxiliary Staff card.

Figure the costs are not so much as to be prohibitive, but enough that you are putting yourself at a handicap in order to have the ship you want.

Hadn't heard that - though I am excited to see what comes I wonder if it will be something similar as an Elite Talent, if it will be something like a Crew that grants it, if it will be a ship upgrade card onto itself (like the ones in X-Wing) or maybe even a special resource from an OP.
