Anyone made one of his engineering a blue green option?

It doesn't make any thematic sense at all for him to be drawing as many leadership cards as an admiral would (Adama or Cain), so no - I don't much care for the idea. I think he's fine with the Pegasus expansion thrown in (some good blue cards there). If that's not an option and you really feel he needs a little extra loving, I might house rule making one of his blue draws a blue/purple.

Purple doesn't seem to make sense with the Chief. I don't recall him doing any tatical planning. However he is excellent at throwing orders around in a crisis.

Dee didn't either and she has a whooping 3 tactics. And anyway he was a leader of the NC resistance so I'm sure he did some planning. Plus it never made sense to me that the deck chief couldn't launch scouts.

Of course you could always split the difference and make the other color yellow to reflect his involvement with the union.

Doesn't his 2 blue draw really define him though?

Scientific Research seems to be a bit of a flop unless you've got T around.

I think with this and his OPG power allow him to have a large, but under the radar, effect on crisis's.

I would say he's not *inevitably* the most useful of characters, but in games where Galactica (and Pegasus) take damage, his absence becomes much more noticeable...
