Can't wait! This may be a 2x purchase if this pod ends up wanting to be used in tons of different decks. Excited for strong rebel pods.

Yeah, I can definitely see it being a staple. Two resources on the objective with a Hidden Outpost as well! It's solid all around, with two (effectively) Elite units, and two tactics icons, but it really wants to be played in a Specter deck. Not that that's a bad thing - I can't wait to get the whole crew together!

I think the cards in the set look strong in their own right in a Rebel character-heavy deck or possibly even a vehicle-heavy or mixed one, even if the Specter support. Hera also has the Leader trait, which is becoming pretty useful.

I certainly have plans to try it in a Rebel deck with lots of unique Rebel units and Rebel's Hope. I currently use either May the Force Be With You or Asteroid Sanctuary to round out the deck, but I'm keen to try this out to make it mono-Rebel.
