Rule hint for this card

This card has an clarification:

This event does not change a captive’s affiliation, but makes it compatible with your personnel and removes all affiliation based restrictions on using the Brainwashed personnel as your own. (See capturing.) Examples:

  • Galen will work with the Federation if Brainwashed, or with a Brainwashed Federation personnel (even if not Brainwashed himself).
  • A Brainwashed captive in your crew or Away Team does not add affiliationbased attack restrictions (e.g., a Brainwashed Federation captive will not prevent your Klingons from initiating battle).
  • A non-Borg captive Brainwashed by the Borg is not assimilated and thus may not share skills or scout, but may attempt missions of his affiliation (the Borg may not join the mission attempt and the Borg player may not score the mission points). The captive’s skills may be used for other purposes, such as using SCIENCE to enhance SHIELDS with Metaphasic Shields.
  • A Borg captive, Brainwashed by a non-Borg captor, will work with that affiliation, but may not join mission attempts. The captive’s skills may be used in other ways, such as using Transporter Skill to nullify an Anti-Matter Pod. A Brainwashed Talon Drone could assimilate an opposing personnel stunned in battle (it would immediately be placed under house arrest or would become a separate Away Team).
Taken form Glossary - Version 1.9.2.
