This set was notorious for being hard to find, as Decipher did not produce enough to come close to meeting demand, the online orders were sold out within hours of its release, and many suppliers did not receive their full order. This set introduced many 'odd affiliation' cards, including a Klingon Riker, a Cardassian Odo, and a number of cards capable of avoiding being stopped by dilemmas. It created several new dilemmas that made decks with many events to be competitive. It also saw many cards that worked well with bonus point stategies and new, better ways to get bonus points, making bonus point strategies competitive for the first time in second edition. This set saw the biggest change in gameplay since the second edition came out despite the small print run.
