Cardassian Union Exploration Cards

One of the most exciting things a Player Expansion adds to Star Trek: Ascendancy is a new sense of adventure and discovery in the form of new Exploration Cards. The Cardassian Union Player Expansion adds ten new cards to the deck, introducing new challenges for civilizations as they explore the Galaxy. The Cardassians are an aggressive people; their hunger for vital resources puts them in conflict with species across the quadrant. That aggressiveness theme carries through to the new Exploration Cards in the form of "Confrontations". A Confrontation is a Crisis Card that immediately puts rival players into conflict, forcing a choice between immediate hostilities, gunship diplomacy, or surprise annexation.
