A card that shows a lovable creature being blown up, what is not to like? Not only does the picture rock but the game text is something that can greatly bennefit most imperial or droid decks.
This card will help any deck without aliens. Unfortunatley for the dark side there are not too many ways to retrieve force (unlike the light side), and this is one of the few cards for the dark side that do.
Strategies and game play:
Keep one in your deck and when you play against a light side deck with aliens you will be able to start with it and almost garentee some force retrieval. If you play decks without aliens then you can choose to not start with it and have an extra destiny 4 in your deck and a card that will be an easy loss if you happen to pic it up.
Combos with other cards:
imperial decks, droid decks and imperial/droid decks.
Ways to counteract it:
play decks that do not have aliens and "wise advise". at least i think that is the card, "secret plans" is the dark side equivilent.
deploys for free
immune to alter
renders operative decks useless

only works if opponent has aliens and you do not have any aliens in your deck.
Artwork and aesthetics:
Great picture for what the card's title is and for what it does.
