I have played the game several times and really enjoy it. I usually have the movies playing in the background and have an uncanny knack for the movie quote matching the card to come up right when the characters leave the barracks!

My questions:

What are people's rank/opinions of the most powerful characters?

Pink Floyd - Wizard of Oz all over again. I am sure Upper Deck planned this. If I ever can find my bong I will try to verify your statement.

Trying to run from memory here. Commence controversy.

Characters:
- Sister Ripley - 2 recruit, 2 attack w/coordinate.
- Brother Dillon - 5 attack on same creature
- Hicks (weapons training)
- Lambert
- Dallas

Roles:
- Mercenary - Very versatile. Other roles can overbuild recruit or attack, but this role ability offers no compromise.
- Commander - 3 free recruit and a card all the time. Why would anyone go with the technician(?)
- Synthetic - How many times do you fret over pulling the right pair of cards in order to get the bonus effect. This renders moot.
