Far Beyond the Stars has always been an expansion designed to celebrate some of the great moments of Deep Space Nine since it first premiered twenty-five years ago. We've seen cards that looked back on the horrors of the Dominion War and the Cardassian resistance to it. Backing up a bit, we've seen the increase of Klingon hostilities in season 4. And even before that, the partnership of the Obsidian Order and Tal Shiar intelligence networks in season 3.

Today, on the day of the full set release, and with the final two cards being revealed, we go all the way back to the beginning, to the premiere episode of Deep Space Nine, "Emissary."

Some players like to see big names, or "star power," appear on new cards, and I think this set has already given plenty of star power. However, the personnel I'm about to spoil was not a big name on Deep Space Nine. He was only in the first episode for a couple of scenes, and never appeared in the series again after that episode.

“Odo, I used to think all your problems stemmed from the fact that you were a changeling, isolated from your own kind, forced to live among strangers who didn't understand you. You couldn't eat, you couldn't drink, you couldn't sleep, you couldn't make love. Was it any wonder you had such a bad disposition? But you're not a changeling anymore. You're one of us. Life is yours for the taking. All you have to do is reach out and grab it. But do you? No. Because solid or changeling, you're still a miserable, self-hating misanthrope.”

– Quark, The Ascent

Everyone’s favorite misanthrope finally makes an appearance in Far Beyond the Stars. I give you, Odo, Vigilant Staffer. This version of Odo was a real treat to design, and one of the cards in the set that changed the least from pitch to production. When Nathan and I settled on our design goals for the set, we were both pretty sure we wanted an Odo. But, we also didn’t want to recycle something that had already been done before. Thankfully, we came up with the idea to round out the Staffer team from one of the fans’ favorite Deep Space Nine episodes, Season 5’s Trials and Tribble-ations. We hope you’ll be pleased.

This Card-Review article was written by Nathan Miracle and was published first on "The Continuing Committee (" at May 23rd, 2018.

Welcome to the Hall of Warriors Here you will see statues standing as great monuments to the heroes of our people. To your left, Kahless, The Unforgettable, who slew the Tyrant Molor with The Sword of Kahless. To your right, Rurik the Damned, who conquered the Zora Fel and liberated Vrax. And of course in the center of the hall we have our main attraction, the man who finally defeated our greatest nemesis, James T. Kirk, Highly-Decorated Captain, none other than Arne Darvin.

History shows that Darvin first encountered Kirk on Deep Space Station K-7, Monitor Federation Commerce, while working undercover for Klingon Intelligence. The treacherous Terran used another of our greatest enemies, a Tribble, to expose Darvin and foil what would otherwise have been a great victory for the Klingon Empire. But a true warrior like Darvin knows that patience brings victory, and he spent the next Earth century studying both Tribbles and relics which might aid in his quest. Songs are sung of how his anthropological studies helped in the Great Tribble Hunt of Iota Geminorum IV, Relocate Polygeminus Grex and other similar battles. But Darvin’s greatest victory came from his archaeological skills, as he obtained the Orb of Time.
