    Rule hint for this card

    This card has an clarification:

    This facility allows both players to seed dilemmas that are “related to Empok Nor” (i.e. have “Empok Nor” in their lore or gametext) underneath the Facility card, which must then be encountered and resolved before the facility can be commandeered. To do so, simply announce that your Away Team in Ops is making a “commandeering attempt,” then encounter and resolve the dilemmas as you would for a mission or scouting attempt. Once there are no longer any dilemmas to be encountered, the attempt ends, and any player’s Away Team may subsequently commandeer Empok Nor normally with a Computer Skill personnel unopposed in Ops. (The actual commandeering is a separate action from the commandeering attempt, which does not require Computer Skill.)

    You may deliberately mis-seed cards that are not Empok Nor dilemmas under this facility as a bluff. When discovered, such mis-seeds are placed out of play as usual. However, if you reveal your own misseeded card when making a commandeering attempt, you may not commandeer Empok Nor as long as it remains uncontrolled. (If your opponent commandeers it, you may then commandeer it from him.)

    “No reporting aboard” means that you may not use the text of any site cards to report cards aboard. Another card’s text may allow a card to report aboard. For example, Luther Sloan “may report anywhere,” including to a site on an uncommandeered Empok Nor. The game text on all Site cards on Empok Nor is inactive until it is commandeered, other than the Ops text allowing commandeering, docking site text allowing docking and undocking, and any text related to the placement of the sites (including the module locations and the Commander’s Office placement restriction). (However, a card that plays on a site, such as Weapons Locker, may be played on an uncommandeered Empok Nor site.) All non-Borg affiliations are compatible with the Neutral uncommandeered station.

    When this station is first commandeered and flipped over, each player may download to the station any number of different compatible Site and Equipment cards. The commandeering player performs all of his downloads first, then the opponent. While the downloaded cards must all be different for each player, both players could download copies of the same card (but not the same unique site). These downloads are all results of the action of commandeering the station. Thus, a Computer Crash will cancel all downloads attempted at that time. Even though Empok Nor seeds uncontrolled, for purposes of seeding or building other facilities there, you remain its owner, and may not seed or build another facility at the same location (unless Empok Nor is commandeered by your opponent).
