    Apparently we are being far too lenient with our rationing, because we are having shortages left, right, and center.

    Well, when was the last time we made it to a planet that actually had some food available?

    B) -1 Food. Tom Zarek (DevoutlyApathetic) discards 2 Skill Cards, then William Adama (Rend) discards 3 Skill Cards.

    Discard Leadership 2 and Tactics 1.

    Turn 21: Admiral William Adama (Rend)

    Crisis Step: Food Shortage

    President Tom Zarek (DevoutlyApathetic) must choose:
    A) -2 Food.

    Problems with maintaining food rationing continue to hound the fleet, and the President and Admiral work hard to minimize the loss.

    No Basestars or Raiders to activate.
    Jump Preparation advances to Level 5 - Jump Available with some risk.


    Turn 22: Lee "Apollo" Adama (Darian)

    I'm afraid what very little aid I could have offered was hampered by our previous food shortage. That said, failure here is meaningless at best and of negligible threat at worst.

    It may be worth saving the skill cards, since we can simply jump away.

    We are rapidly burning through our Raptor supply. I can't do much with this check but that is something we need to pay attention to.

    Hadn't actually thought of that one, was more looking at the fact that a few toasters outside aren't likely to cause us any real trouble right now.

    And with scout launching shenanigans like what we've had, we could definitely use it if we saved it. However, I'm not going to be able to give much. I think we should go for it, but I will be contributing only moderately.

    Finally, a situation in which my particular talents will be of more use.

    With my draw coming up next, I feel fairly confident Contributing four cards

    It's still only a moderate amount, however, so I wouldn't worry about overshooting this one too much on my account.

    Just got home.

    People, this potential terrorist ship hurtling at high speed towards our fleet is a clear and present danger. I suggest we form an Investigative Committee to deal with the situation.

    Play Politics 3 for it's ability.

    Yea, contingent orders for that is tough. Granted, the -2 resource one with a middling DC is a solid candidate I think. Easy to over/undershoot and I don't want any "whoops" cards to be slipped into it by baddies.

    We are super fast.

    My immediate instinct is to test our Admiral. Any opinions or advice to the contrary?

    Not enough time has passed since the cylon flu started to really get a grip on who is acting oddly so pick whoever. Admiral is a decent choice since the whole destination thing is pretty strong.
