Brain Drain Crusher and Riker - I Need a Ruling (This is Intended to be Fun)

Bylo BandBylo Band ✭✭✭✭✭
As some of you know already and everyone who reads this will learn, from day 1 of my STT career I have steadfastly refused to own any 5* Riker cards. Every time I get a copy I airlock it instantly and I avoid taking 5* Rikers in begolds. However, the introduction of the new Brain Drain Crusher and Riker has me in a pickle because it is a 5* card and Riker is on it, but it is also a Crusher card and it seems to me the card is poking fun at Riker which is in line with my status as a Riker heckler.

I can make a strong case to not collect this card on Riker grounds but I can also make an equally strong case to collect this card on Crusher/Riker-teasing grounds so I decided to open this up to a poll for fun to see what the people have to say! Please vote and explain your reasoning in the comments :) (Again, this is not serious, have fun with it)

    I have a vague memory of that episode. Without watching it again. I think keep it. Consider it a Crusher card as you said making fun of Riker.

    For me Riker was someone that could have easily been left out of the series.

    I may try to find that episode this weekend and watch it,

    Edit: I realize now what I am thinking of is the straw wrapper being blown at him. Not sure if that happened. If it did I think Troi does it too.

    Edit2: Now that I look at that picture and see it as Scott mentioned. I am thinking (the opposite way) it is a new way of doing a b*** j**. I guess this would make Riker an air head.

    Edit3: now that i understand the card. I have to say most certainly keep it. Riker's brain has been drained. So how could it be a Riker card.

    Wow, you're even taking this out on his father. What did the Alaskan Rikers do to you? Did one of them perform a Riker Maneuver in your presence without your consent?

    I refuse to take that one 5 🌟 Riker if he is in a BeGold until they realize that sexual assault is NOT "Romantic", regardless of the gender of the victim......

    I'd say Keep it. It mainly a Crusher card with a splash of Riker on the Rocks.
    Sir, I protest! I am NOT a merry man!

    Sigh...good luck getting THAT out of your head now...... :s

    I took forensics and I'm a farm kid. That didn't phase me. I found a rat mummy in my cathouse yesterday and picked it up before I realized what it was. Thought it was a piece of string Louie had lost behind a box. Nope. Tail.

    It's a chicken house on one end and a cat house on the other. What else do you call it? So as not to upset overly sensitive people>
    A **tsk tsk** parlor? A moggie manor?
    I have no filter. It is what it is- A cathouse, population fourteen, including the new babies. Calleigh's are chubby little things. Rory has a trouble maker. It tries to escape at two days old.

    Fair enough, some people just want everyone to sit down in their chairs one way. I’m sure you’re more of a Picard Maneuver guy anyways.

    If it doesn't have "Gambler", can you really call it a Riker card?

    At least it doesn't have "Romantic", like the other Riker card where she inappropriately abused him and their "friendship"......
