A bit low on Politics, especially since Baltar is most likely a Cylon.

(I enjoy accusing people at random )

It is a lovely day here on sunny Caprica. The weather is mild: not too cold, not too hot, and a light breeze tenders both the body and the spirits. The place is quiet and restful, not a tourist in sight! I went into a bar earlier but there was no-one around to serve me, so I drafted myself a refreshing pint, and left some money on the counter. Really enjoyable.

I am so glad that Boomer convinced me to let that Dr. Baltar borrow my seat on the raptor. I guess she did not take kindly to me almost crashing the bird a couple of times as I was still reeling from the big party of the previous night, but it worked out well for me. No rush picking me up, Boomer -- I am doing just fine!

Alright. Let's get this show on the road. Suggestions for the first turn? I suggest getting the President to his office or getting our pilot into space.

I am personally against using an XO on someone if he needs it to move (unless it is out of Sickbay, of course). And I am especially against sending an XO to the person next in line. So Baltar is definitely out.

An XO to Starbuck could work, as long as she has a good second action. Which means she must have a scout. First action: launch into Sector 5; bonus action: move to Sector 4; second action: launch scout. That would be good, and it would give Starbuck an extra action later. That is probably the best use of an XO. Without her having a scout, I am not enthusiastic about XO-ing her, as the second action would just be wasted, and you would have wasted one of our precious cards.

But there is nothing against you moving to, for instance, Communications and launching a scout yourself. There is no big threat going on right now.

I am ready to launch, Sir.

I agree with Helo that an XO to Starbuck would be nice, if she has a scout ready. The option that you, Admiral, just walk to the Com and bring the civs closer to the Viper launch tubes is fine with me too. The only small disadavntage would be that you, Adama, would be perfect in the Press Room (since you can't launch in a Viper as Starbuck&Helo and don't have my repair skills, which make us more useful on Galactica).
As an alternative I could consolidate on an XO for more cards (first CP to draw two politics to get a second CP), but this is of course not such urgent.

EDIT: Again ninjaed.

I agree with Chief that Adama in the Press Room would be good. And then XO Starbuck, or use the Press Room. We need the cards.

And if all the Military Leaders are gone from Galactica, me and my knuggledragger have a much easier time here. Partystar Galactica!

Thanks for the input, guys. I've played a number of times, but opening strategies have never been my strong suit. Right then.

Move to Press Room, discarding 2 - Executive Order.
Action: Activate Press Room.




"Ladies and gentlemen, these are dark times. The cylons have indeed returned and most of humanity has been wiped out. The threat is now at our doorstep and we have few places to run to.

"Therefore, to take people's minds off all this, I have a number of scandalous photos for sale of President Baltar feeling up some Caprican floozies. I'll start the bidding at 1000!"

I could help only a little bit here. Do we have enough PRB to pass this check?

I can do quite a bit for this check, but it will probably be tight. It is quite a nasty fail condition at this time. If we go for it, I'll add two cards for a "medium" contribution.

Cylon Tracking Device - 10PRB



I can make a significant contribution to pass this skill check, but this will almost deplete my entire hand. What do you think, should I play the cards, when my turn comes?

Starbuck, I think that you could spend your cards. Since Baltar won't XO you on his turn (because this would be a next-XO) you won't need your scout. Your red could be helpful, but the raiders will still need some time to come close to the civs and you will draw fresh reds earlier. And the blue you really don't need, since Baltar and me will draw fresh blues soon.

I can help a fair amount. Barring a very unfortunate destiny, we should be able to pass this.

The crisis passes with no further effects.

Three Raiders move from sector 1 to sector 2.

The Jump Track remains at Start.
