Pod Person

Alien Staff Member

Illustration: Yorgo Tsalamanis

Theme:Quantity
B-movie:1

Notes

Even though the card is from the B-movie pack, this staff member includes the card type Alien, and can be searched up using the Advanced Tech event from the Alien theme pack. The staff member counts as Alien for the purposes of the Human Resistance blueprint.

Note that card type and theme pack are not the same thing - the Alien theme pack has many Alien items, but it does not have a monopoly on them.

+Cloning Lab

If you employ the Pod Person while you operate the Cloning Lab, you can use the Pod Person as a substitute target when the Alien Influence token would be applied to the newly cloned staff member. Since a Pod Person cannot have tokens placed on them, the rule fails, and you are left with a cloned staff member with no expiry date.

The Cloning Lab usually has the clones set on a 1-month lifespan, but if you can replace the operator with one more aligned with the goals of our alien friends, you can flip that switch to 'permanent'. Thanks Becky!
