    I like that Helo got the Unfair Bias crisis and passes it with an Iron Will.

    Also, uh, this is rather embarassing, but I don't have any repairs handy. Weird hand. Gonna have to let you oversee the Mark VII project, Gaeta.

    Move to and activate Communications. Peek at Civilians A and B, then direct them both to Port-Quarter.

    Man, these "check loyalty" crises always show up early and they're always so much fun.

    Kobol and New Caprica were tough times, times that demand investigation. I feel that these proceedings are vital to the security of the fleet and I order that they be undertaken in the brightest possible sunlight.

    Play Politics 3 - Investigative Committee on the check.

    What's your reason for not throwing in a card or two, Starbuck? You are drawing a full set of cards right after this crisis resolves. Any intel is good intel, I say.

    If you remember my initial and support draws, you'll see the number of cards I have to use on this check. As I said, I want to be able to have that/those card(s) on my turn.

    Well, I was just curious, but since you mentioned, I looked. You either have 1 Lead and 2 Tac currently, or you have 3 Tac (and contributed your Lead card to a crisis where it was negative.)

    So if you have a Lead card that absolutely must be saved because it'll be useful on your turn then it's probably an XO or a State of Emergency. At the very least I can understand wanting to hold on to the latter.

    Thanks for the reassurance!

    You could always submit a high positive and a low negative, but it's pretty important to pass this check so I'm okay with the overkill.

    Look at Admiral Helo's loyalty.

    I swear, you spend one extra turn on a Cylon-occupied planet and suddenly everyone's suspecting you. For what it's worth, I'm not a Cylon.

    Galactica's ace pilot Starbuck has recently been promoted to CAG, and found that looking after 10 Vipers is a lot harder than 1. After seeing the alert Vipers off to guard the civilians, she can finally get some things done herself.

    Hey Cally, what civilian would you recommend escorting, since I get to do it for free?

    I guess I can just cyan this...

    Stay in the hangar and activate the location, launching myself at the port bow.

    Spend the extra action on my CAG action- activate an unmanned viper at port-quarter to escort the civilian Cally recommends off the map, and use the extra action to play Leadership 2- Executive Order on Tory
    .

    Phew. That was a lot more complicated than most of the actions I've had to take before. CAG is interesting!

    Tory does well with the Quorum, installing Admiral Helo as her new Vice-President and building a substantial amount of political capital in the process. She may need some the next time she has an important decision to make, such as...


    Water Shortage

    President Chooses
    -1 food
    OR
    The President discards 2 Skill Cards; then the current player discards 3 Skill Cards.
    (activate basestars)
    (jump prep)

    How many of those cards would you like to keep, Madam President?

    So we have a mostly-confirmed admiral, -1 jump prep with no real immediate issues from the cylons without 2 straight raider/heavy raider activations.

    Our best options for Felix's turn seem to be:

    1) kill off the raiders
    2) scout the destination deck
    3) XO the president for more hot quorum action (remembering she is uncofirmed at the moment)
    4) Jump the heck out of here, given Felix's FTL abilities.

    I think that's my order of preference at the moment
