With the recent release of a Jack Crusher card for the Stargazer, it hit me as seemingly strange that there has not been a Wesley Crusher card. Does anybody know if there is any reason for this or if it's just nothing more than being the last of Enterprise-D regular crew that has not yet seen a card?

Probably just prioritization. We didn't get Tasha until 1 year after release. (in a non-retail ship.) I suspect we'll see Wesley eventually.

Others we've yet to see: Dr. Pulaski, Guinan, an actual Q card, Lursa & B'Etor, K'Ehleyr, Mot. Plenty more ships coming!

I want a Tin Man ship I can fly around the board!!!

Someone was already speculating that Wesley will show up for the first time with the Sakharov, the prize ship for an upcoming Episode based OP call Peak Performance.

Wesley featured fairly prominently in the episode, though the Sakharov itself was only seen onscreen for a moment bringing the Master Strategist aboard the Enterprise. Memory Alpha mentions several other episodes featuring the Sakharov, and crew members more prominently linked with the shuttle include Cmd. Riker, Data, Geordi, and Dr. Pulaski.

I think it would be great to get a Wesley card in this prize pack. Additional crew cards for the major TNG crew and the first Dr. Pulaski card would also be great.

Wesley could be a great "add a tech slot" card, or one like Quark that brings a tech for free.

He should be zero points and his ability should be "Shut up Wesley" with no actual effect.

Sorry, Wesley was executed for walking on the grass.

The funny thing is this would actually be a reasonably useful card for "discard upgrades to do stuff" upgrades and boarding party scenarios.

Or -
Wesley: Crew : 0 points. Reduce your captain's skill by one. Action: Disable this upgrade. Roll one attack die: on a crit your ship gains an aux token, on a hit re-roll your defense dice this round, on a BS or miss this action has no effect.

All kidding aside, that wouldn't be fair. Love him or hate him, Wesley was a valuable member of the crew who did his share to save the ship plenty of times. Maybe an ability related to the Traveller or something related to his warp experiments. He could be one of those crew giving you an extra move or evade as he was frequently at the helm. Or maybe a scan as he was good with the engineering stuff.

That's the thing about Wesley; he started out as a well-written character: a foil to the captain, someone to poke at Picard's one weakness as a leader.

Later on, lazy writers turned him into the Wunderkind everyone remembers him as. Any time they wrote themselves into a corner and needed a deus ex machina, they'd shove Wesley in there. (You know your character's experiencing some serious power creep when the only thing left they can think of to do with you is apprentice you to a godlike being...)

I'd love to see both an "Acting Ensign" Wesley Crusher card, with a modest but useful ability, and a late-series Wesley with a funky ability that reflects his on-screen OP'ness...

Bear in mind we still haven't had a prime universe Tasha yet. I wonder if at some point they might come out with a TNG crew upgrade pack like they did for DS9. Maybe a captain Riker that isn't awful, Pulaski, Wesley, Tasha, Guinan, Q then K'Ehleyr and Major Rakal as the token romulan/klingon crew, also I'd love an Admiral Necheyev.

The other thing I'd really like as Im putting together my maquis fleet is an Indy faction Thomas Riker.

Nor have we seen a Romulan Commander Sela. Coincidence?

I'm hoping we might see Admiral Sela with the Haakona expansion, but we'll have to see.

The Wesley Crusher could be a good name for a torture device.

They are probably holding the Wesley Crusher card hostage until Attack Wing is featured on Wheaton's TableTop Show.

That's kind of wired. He di X-Wing, which shows he's familiar with the Flight Path system, and he did Star Trek Catan (with Jerry Ryan I think) which shows he's willing to do Trek. Why no Attack Wing? Even Fleet Captain would be a good episode.

After they kind of rooked him over in the last movie, maybe he's just not hot to promote Star Trek anymore.
