    Not a bad choice at all; getting an enemy fleet (with massive deployment) that early in a jump cycle can be rough.

    On the other hand, when I jump into a viper, I get to take an additional action right then, so I could have jumped in and then either played a card or moved myself into position to take out some raiders.

    Regardless, we'll see what's coming down the pipe.

    Really it's a toss up. I mean, the abilities are there to be used, but we probably could have handled it.

    But hey, it's not having to handle it that saves us that civilian ship or two, eh? Especially with the rotten rolling we've had so far. I mean, seriously, our die needs an attitude adjustment.

    Turn 11: Admiral William Adama (Rend)

    Crisis Step: Cylon Swarm

    1) Activate Basestars
    2) Combat Setup
    Fore (9 o'clock): 1 Basestar, 5 Raiders
    Starboard-Bow (11 o'clock): 1 Heavy Raider
    Aft (3 o'clock): 1 Civilian Ship
    Port-Quarter (5 o'clock): 1 Viper, 1 Civilian Ship
    Port-Bow (7 o'clock): 1 Viper, 1 Civilian Ship
    3) Special Rule – Massive Deployment
    Keep this card in play until the fleet jumps. Each time a Basestar launches raiders of heavy raiders, it launches 1 additional ship of the same type.

    abotkin makes use of Secret Destiny to discard the Crisis and draw a new one.

    Starbuck gets a feeling that something is amiss with the Raptor's disappearance and asks that the fleet redirect their current course of action, avoiding the presence of a Cylon patrol fleet...


    Crisis Step: Build Cylon Detector

    Admiral William Adama (Rend) must choose:
    A) Discard 1 nuke token.
    OR
    B) -1 morale and William Adama (Rend) discards 2 Skill Cards.

    Anyway, no repair cards for me, and I've not heard peep from Starbuck that she can repair anything either. I'll just move to command and launch two vipers, one fore and one aft.

    I guess they're using different tubes than the ones Starbuck and I launch out of. I will not choose to launch myself at this time.

    Hmm....tough choice.

    I'd probably go with the pop loss since we've got extra right now but I'm not at all certain of that. The lull would be nice but that doesn't look like lots of horribly opposition. Of course, I say that now not knowing what comes next in the crisis deck.

    Population is to be spent, and right now we're 3 or 4 in the green. We will lose the population. We've done an outstanding job saving pop thusfar, also, cylons? No thanks, thanks.

    I can, if need be, contribute a little bit to this check.

    I'd imagine we would still need quite a bit of luck to pass it, however, and considering it's three raiders with no basestar I would lean in favor of the second option unless anyone else is terribly optimistic of our chances with the skill check.

    This is as good a place as any to empty my hand. This check is a pretty decent one to pass, putting us a single step away from auto-jump and in the -1 space so even if Maddoc pulls some absolutely horrible assault we can still just leave.

    I contribute 2 cards, that'd be all that is left in my hand.

    Adding one card. I was tempted not to add anything with the number out there, but if we have a cylon in our midst, now seems like a decent time to start working against us, particularly with the number of cards added here.

    The first batch of Destiny Deck draws were pretty transparent to me given the Investigative Committee and limited group of people who contributed to certain checks and what those people had the option of drawing.

    I haven't detected even a hint of somebody fucking up the checks yet.
