    Excellent!

    IAmUnaware, your pick is up; you must pick a [Military Leader], [Pilot] or [Support] character.

    I think I'll be rolling with Saul Tigh. And no, that is not just an excuse to yell "GAIUS FRAKKING BALTAR" every turn.

    ... maybe just every other turn.

    Man, potentially President Zarek and Admiral Tigh together? I feel sorry for whoever our Cylons are.

    That leaves Dracil with his choice of Pilot or Support, and judging by his previous post he will be playing Lee "Apollo" Adama. Let me know which launch section you want to be flying in, Dracil; also, if you want to change your selection before Osvik picks his character, I think that'd be fine.

    Osvik is up and has his choice of the remaining 7 characters.

    Awesome! I was hoping someone would pick him.

    That just leaves us with Simonwolf who can pick any character that's left.

    Everyone other than Zarek needs to pick a starting hand of three cards from the five they would normally draw.

    Folks, I'd like to take this time to encourage you to PM me any contingencies you may have for your Skill Cards so that we might keep the pace of the game going a little faster. Also, any official plays should be posted in CYAN so they stand out better.

    Those who have played or hosted before, please chime in with anything I've forgotten to say or do.


    Mr. Zarek! Some Cylon ships have discovered the fleet and are even now threatening to attack. What are your orders?

    Well, you should put Apollo's viper in the sitrep at 7 o'clock.

    Also, I usually list the skill cards that the person drew instead of just saying "completed" there. It's particularly useful for Cylons, multi-draw choices, and people in sickbay. Cuts down on questions later, makes it easier to keep track of what people are doing.

    Despite his initial desire to run for President, Tom swallowed his pride and headed towards the Press Room.

    "People of the Fleet, I am broadcasting today to inform you all of my intention to drop my presidential campaign. Instead I will be putting my full support behind Dr. Gaius Baltar. I know that some may have reservations against someone as inexperienced as Baltar, but I assure you that I will provide him with advice and guidance. I will not let you all down, and I promise that as long as I am alive, our fleet will be safe from the tyranny that is Admiral Tigh."

    !Move to the Press Room and activate the location.

    Tom Zarek's impassioned and selfless speech to the fleet garners him some political support; he draws 2 Politics cards.

    Unfortunately, his accusations have stirred up dissent among the civilian population, and in anger they demand results in the search for possible Cylon infiltrators.

    Thanks for catching that, Osvik.

    Is "decent amount" a little, or a lot? Might be best if everyone sticks to either of those two phrases. I'm not really a stickler about this but it's certainly mentioned enough times in the errata :?

    After being unable to completely counter the unrest and anger running rampant through the civilian population, one of Galactica's crew is assaulted but the attack is broken up early enough to prevent any real injury. Still, the morale of the fleet suffers a blow; -1 Morale.

    The Cylon Basestar launches a Heavy Raider and Galactica CIC continues it's prep for the next jump.

    7. Discard and Check for Human Defeat; Not quite yet.

    "People of the Colonial Fleet, it is I, Tom Zarek. I am disappointed in you all for the lack of resistance against the witch hunt. Witch hunts are just a way to distract us from the greater debates. I am positive that there was some hidden Cylons in the proponents of the witch hunt."


    Tom Zarek lowered his microphone, and contemplated whether or not Lee or Galen had displayed any suspicious behavior. He decided to keep a closer eye on those two and proceeded to head towards President Baltar's Office.

    "We really could have used your support in the last crisis. I did not give up my presidency campaign to support someone who just stands idly by during times of crisis. I had to take the brunt of the effort, and that should not be the case."

    "Frakkin' Zarek stirring the pot again. Doesn't he know there's a war on?" Tigh said to no one in particular, looking intently at the DRADIS and the indicators at the fore of the ship. "We need a plan. I need to go... think."
    Move to Research Lab and activate it to draw 1 Tactics. (I am totally not sneaking away to enjoy some private time with my flask.)
